North Korea Nuclear Hypocrisy

MAPW member Michelle Fahy has this letter published in the Canberra Times on 1 December 2010:

Dear Editor
Has anyone else pondered the hypocrisy of a position which castigates North Korea for developing nuclear weapons while simultaneously gratefully accepting shelter beneath the "protective" umbrella of US nuclear weapons? Let's ask the people of Hiroshima and Nagasaki whether they see any difference between US nuclear weapons and North Korean ones. Surely the only sensible response to the alarming situation on the Korean peninsula is to fast-track negotiation of a global treaty banning all nuclear weapons.
