While not pursuing, developing,
building, manufacturing, deploying or "using"
nuclear weapons to make this a safer world

Iran has vowed to continue its nuclear program
developing reactors said to provide electricity
essential to the disarming process

While not pursuing, developing,
building, manufacturing, deploying or "using"
nuclear weapons to make this a safer world

N. Korea has vowed to continue its nuclear program
by developing reactors said to provide energy
essential to the disarming process

While not pursuing, developing,
building, manufacturing, deploying or "using"
nuclear weapons to make this a safer world

The US has vowed to continue its nuclear program
by exploring low-yield mini nukes and other weapons
essential to the disarming process

While not pursuing, developing,
building, manufacturing, deploying or "using"
nuclear weapons to make this a safer world?
