The Ominous Nature of Treaties

On April 9, 2010, Barack Obama, Russian President Dimitry Medvedev, and Czech Republic President Vaclav Klaus met at Prague Castle and signed a nuclear treaty. While a nuclear treaty may sound like a good thing, we must remember that there are other nations that possess powerful nuclear weapons and that a treaty by definition is just a plan for another war. A treaty is an agreement between nations to come to the aid of each other if any one of them is attacked. This always ensures a much larger war.

Who would have thought that the assassination of Franz-Ferdinand in Sarajevo would trigger World War I? It did so because of the treaties that existed among all the nations to come to each other's aid, creating a domino effect that devastated the world in the early years of the twentieth century. At the end of World War I came the Versailles Treaty in France, which guaranteed that the next war would be global as well. In fact, when British Representative Lloyd-George left the Versailles Treaty and reporters asked him what was accomplished that day, he answered, "War in twenty years." Exactly twenty years later, Germany began activities which were fomented into World War II. Such is the nature of a treaty.
