“It’s Just Another Thursday:” Iran V The Five Permanent Members Of The UNSC, The EU And The Proliferation Of Nuclear In Perspective -By Mujahid Muhammad Musa
The world and the US will surely not sleep with two eyes.??
Iran is the epicenter of uranium, so it’d be very preposterous for you to look me in the eyes and tell me that Iran doesn’t have a nuclear weapon! ?? On record, Iran is a non nuclear state and there is no congent report pointing directly that Iran possesses a nuclear weapon, but as per the state (Iran) being the epicenter of uranium, I’d be hard to convince that Iran doesn’t possess a nuclear weapon. Reference is also made to the statements made by the former President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad which was considered as a threat to the existence of the state of Isreal. So I still ask myself, why the hassle?

Well, the US is frightened so also the 5 permanent members of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) plus the European Union and that warranted the P5+1 member states to cajole Iran into a signing of a treaty, Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) which sole purpose is “Non-proliferation of Nuclear weapon,” strengthening the existing NPT treaty.
Maybe due to the side-effects along side the aftermath of the Nuclear weapon [sic]:
1- Those within the area of explosion will surely die from the gamma rays emitted from the blast, known as “Ground Zero.”
2- Both animals and human beings will be blind permanently from the bright light emitted from the nuclear bomb.
3- The possiblity of firestorm
4- The spread of radioactive materials in the atmosphere as a contributing factor to the expected mortalities… It’d give rise to Leukemia, Cancer, etcetera… As such, Japan is still recuperating from the aftermath of the Nuclear reactors named, “little boy and fat man” deployed by the US in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan after the Second World War (WWII) in 1945; 231 death from leukemia, 334 death from solid cancer. 120,000 people died, mostly civilians. The injury caused directly from the explosion and indirectly from the aftermath of the radiation. The nuclear bomb derived its destructive force from nuclear reactions, either by fission or a combination of fission and fussion. It’s been equally stated that “It was just another Thursday” as per an English proverb – that the world lost its peace the day the fission was discovered in 1938.¹
5- Nuclear bomb is Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) in nature, all the electric supplies within the vicinity will be gone and disconnected.
Basically, the use of nuclear weapon is a flagrant breach of the principles of international humanitarian law of the time immemorial, customary international law -That is – principle of distinction as well as the principle of proportionality.
The international community has frowned at the resort to the use of nuclear as a means of warfare because of its indiscriminate nature, leaving the civilians as well as the combatant with unnecessary hardships, and that will revive the pioneer of International Humanitarian Law, the author of “Un Souvenir De Salfrino,” Sir Henry Dunant to write another souvenir of nuclear warfare. (Lol). As such, an agreement – the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty (NPT) was signed by the international community. The likes of South Africa had really respected the sanctity of the treaty by way of transferring her nuclear warhead to Russia. My question is, is there equality of states as per the NPT vis-a-vis Article 2 as well as the preamble of the United Nations Charter? It’d be the topic of another day.
On the same vein, the draft Nuclear Prohibition Treaty was proposed, the US and her entourage vehemently opposed it. Is there power-politics at the international level, it’d also be the topic of another day.
On a final note, the parties concerned to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action – Five Permanent Members of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) and the EU i.e “P5+1” and Iran on the other hand have continued to walk the talk in order to save the succeeding generation from the scourge of war.
Will the posterity rest if nuclear proliferates?
1- The UNcharter
2- Chris Wigwe, “International Humanitarian Law.”
