The caravan moves on....

There's a saying in Armenian that goes something like "the dog barks and the caravan moves on". «Շունը կը հաչէ, գարաւանը կը քալէ:» It's something to the effect of: "no one gives a fuck".

What makes me bring this up? Well, it seems like the "Israeli" left-leaning newspaper Ha'aretz is having a fit over some comments by an American representative on "Israel's" nuclear weapons. But don't worry, for the "Israeli" government it has always been and always will be a case of «Շունը կը հաչէ, գարաւանը կը քալէ:»
In her statement Saturday [Jackie Walcott] Sanders [ambassador, Conference on Disarmament and special representative of the president for the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons] said: "The Conference should also reinforce the goal of universal NPT adherence and reaffirm that India, Israel and Pakistan may join the NPT only as non-nuclear-weapon states. Just as South Africa and Ukraine did in the early 1990s, these states should forswear nuclear weapons and accept IAEA safeguards on all nuclear activities to join the treaty. At the same time, we recognize that progress toward universal adherence is not likely in the foreseeable future. The United States continues to support the goals of the Middle East resolution adopted at the 1995 NPT Review and Extension Conference, including the achievement of a Middle East free of weapons of mass destruction."

According to the Israeli experts, the American administration does not want to expand nuclear proliferation to additional states in the region and agrees that in time it would be preferable to have the Middle East nuclear free, but disagrees with the immediate adoption of a policy which would prevent American forces like the Sixth Fleet ships and airplanes from carrying nuclear warheads in bombs and missiles as well. (very peaceful and liberating indeed).
