Chomsky's claim that nuclear-armed states are criminal because they do not 
live up to their legal obligations is shaky. After all, the law can always 
be 'interpreted' in whatever way suits the powerful; or 'exceptions' can be 
declared; etc.

His claim is also beside the point. Whatever the law says or does not say, 
these are monstrous weapons. They are designed to wipe out entire cities, as 
we saw in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. No capitalist state can be trusted with 
them; no true socialist state would use them. We should simply stand for the 
complete and immediate elimination of all nuclear weapons from the face of 
the Earth.
