David Cortright’s commentary “Denuking Iran” (April 2006) is right on the ball.

David Cortright’s commentary “Denuking Iran” (April 2006) is right on the ball. After all, what right do we in the United States have to tell others that they may not have nuclear weapons when we not only have them—and are actually improving them every year—but also carry the stigma of being the only nation that has ever employed them? This reeks of “do what I say, not what I do.”
