Nanobots are the real concern about wiping out humanity because they can be weapons of mass destruction.

There was an orchestrated smear campaign which I knew was coming from December which was suggesting that I wasn't actually at Hillsborough. Can I just put this on record Andrew, because this is really important? There was an orchestrated campaign wh[...]
I haven't lost a close, personal friend. I've lost someone who I know. It's not as if I have lied about weapons of mass destruction. It's not as if I have taken us into an illegal war. It's not as if I've been caught in a paedophile ring. We have ha[...]
North Korea was already under immense pressure over its efforts to develop nuclear weapons and intercontinental ballistic missiles, and also its human rights issues. Things will get even more complicated for Pyongyang if its chemical weapons issues [...]
North Korea doesn't want to give up its nuclear weapons. Nuclear weapons are key to its survival. Talks for North Korea are really about getting sanctions relief, playing for time, playing for advantage, trying to get sanctions lifted. And so if tha[...]
Compliance with arms control agreements is of great importance and especially when it comes to treaties covering nuclear weapons. Any non-compliance of Russia with the INF Treaty would be a serious concern for the alliance.
These are serious military and security threats. Pyongyang has no intention of backing away from its goal to become a country with nuclear weapons.
Whether or not to abandon nuclear weapons concerns North Korea's core national interests and there is no way for China to get it to change its stance with a few words of persuasion, and it can't solve the problem by applying a ban on exports. The ke[...]
To make sure that there would be enough Chinese nuclear weapons to survive a U.S. first strike and not be neutralized by U.S. missile defense, China may have an increasing incentive to adopt the launch-on-warning posture.
We are taking defensive steps like deploying the highly effective THAAD anti-missile unit to the Republic of Korea to protect its people and our troops that stand with our ally. America's commitments to defending our allies and to upholding our exte[...]
We stand with our peace-loving Republic of Korea ally to maintain stability on the peninsula and in the region. America's commitments to defending our allies and to upholding our extended deterrence guarantees remain ironclad: Any attack on the Unit[...]
We're at the very beginning stages of a very brutal and bloody conflict... we are in an outright war against jihadist Islamic fascism... there is a major war brewing, a war that's already global. It's going global in scale, and today's technology, t[...]
It's going global in scale, and today's technology, today's media, today's access to weapons of mass destruction. It's going to lead to a global conflict that I believe has to be confronted today. Every day that we refuse to look at this as what it [...]
As a former Air Force pilot during the days of the Cold War, I understand the deterrent value of our nuclear weapons systems, and the vital role they play in keeping the peace.
They have sanctions on Russia - let's see if we can make some good deals with Russia. For one thing, I think nuclear weapons should be way down and reduced very substantially, that's part of it. Beside that, he criticized Russia's intrusion into the[...]
Their nuclear weapons and ballistic missile defence programs are a serious threat to us. We try to stay ahead of that and we are staying ahead of that with our missile defences to make sure we've upgraded their number, their type, so that we're sure[...]
If you have something like 50 years, that could deflect it enough, and it might be a whole lot simpler than sending up nuclear weapons.
All the accusations against Russia are based on 'confidence' and suppositions. The USA in the same way was confident about (Iraqi leader Saddam) Hussein having weapons of mass destruction.
It's time for our country to move on to bigger and better things. Nevertheless, in the interest of our country and its great people, I will meet with leaders of the intelligence community next week in order to be updated on the facts of this situati[...]
This is how arms races begin - with a battle of words. Neither side needs to be spending hundreds of billions of dollars on nuclear weapons we don't need.
These are the same people that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.
I oppose the deal because it doesn't prevent Iran from getting nukes, it paves the way for Iran to get nuclear weapons. The problem isn't so much that Iran will break the deal but that Iran will keep it.
The problem isn't so much that Iran will break the deal, but that Iran will keep it because it just can walk in within a decade, and even less ... to industrial-scale enrichment of uranium to make the core of an arsenal of nuclear weapons. So the pr[...]
He has made various vague statements that indicate that he believes in a strong military but doesn't seem to know much about nuclear forces and issues, is unconcerned about nuclear proliferation, yet also seems impressed by the 'hugeness' of nuclear[...]
The range of unilateral presidential authority is astonishingly broad. If you look at the presidential policy directives issued by Obama, they cover topics as diverse as biological weapons, nuclear weapons policy, intelligence surveillance policy, c[...]

The U.S. has nuclear weapons off our coast, targeting our country, our capital and our Dear Leader, Kim Jong Un.

The United States is reaffirming its ironclad commitment to defend South Korea with our extended deterrence capabilities. Make no mistake. Any attack on American or our allies will not only be defeated, but any use of nuclear weapons will be met wit[...]
All I said is that we have to renegotiate these agreements because our country cannot afford to defend Saudi Arabia, Japan, Germany, South Korea and many other places, we cannot continue to afford…She took that as saying nuclear weapons.
The illusion of invulnerability and impunity under the missile defense umbrella would encourage Washington to take unilateral steps in dealing with global and regional issues. That can objectively lead to lowering the threshold of nuclear weapons us[...]

North Korea is an enormous challenge, and we will do everything we can to keep the pressure on them. We will continue to sharpen financial tools as we can. The goal is to change the [North Korean nuclear weapons] policy.
The North Koreans have already developed their ability to detonate nuclear weapons. What they've yet to perfect are the missiles capable of carrying them.
Imagine him in the Oval Office facing a real crisis. A man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons.

Iraq is in chaos, Iran is on the path to nuclear weapons, Syria is engulfed in a civil war, and a refugee crisis now threatens the West. After 15 years of wars in the Middle East, after trillions of dollars spent and thousands of lives lost, the sit[...]

I cannot exclude that tactical nuclear weapons already exist in the Kaliningrad region.
The threat from Saddam Hussein and weapons of mass destruction, chemical, biological, potentially nuclear weapon's capability, that threat is real. So the purpose of our discussion today is to work out the right strategy for dealing with this. Becau[...]
I am proud the president will visit Hiroshima, where in 1945 the United States dropped the first of two nuclear weapons to end the Second World War. President Obama has set an important precedent for future commanders in chief as well as other world[...]
Nations should not be strong with their armies of soldiers and nuclear weapons. In the 21st century nations should be strong with the success of the people.
For us to obtain nuclear weapons is completely inconceivable.

Today, I invited all the nations represented at this summit to join a broader discussion among our intelligence and security services on how we can improve information sharing within and among our nations to prevent all manner of terrorist attacks, [...]
Well, first of all, he united the pro-choice and pro-life groups, which I don't know how he did that. But think about this: he said he would use nuclear weapons, maybe in Europe, that we would leave Nato, he would have a supreme court justice who wo[...]
Mr. Trump's suggestion that somehow we should encourage our allies in South Korea to develop nuclear weapons is directly contrary to a policy that the United States has long pursued and that the international community has long supported.
It is no coincidence that the North Korean government would rather grow its nuclear weapons program than grow its own children.
The chronic suffering of the people of North Korea is the direct result of the choices made by the DPRK government, a government that has consistently prioritized its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs over providing for the most basic n[...]
I don't want to see Faslane close. I have long argued Faslane should be a conventional naval base, and of course, there needs to be investment and diversification in making sure that we create alternative jobs for people who currently work in Triden[...]
The international community must impose severe and clear sanctions against any violation (by Iran). Without our efforts leading the sanctions and preventing Iran's nuclear plan, Iran would have possessed nuclear weapons a long time ago. Israel's pol[...]

I believe that by visiting Hiroshima, understanding the reality of radiation exposure, and voicing his opinions there, President Obama is going to provide a strong push for achieving a world devoid of nuclear weapons.

With this deal, we cut off every single one of Iran's pathways to a nuclear weapons programme.
I'm in favour of the Iran negotiations but they are profoundly flawed. There are two states that rampage in the middle east carrying out aggressions, violence, terrorist acts, illegal acts, constantly. They're both huge nuclear weapon states and the[...]
It is a bad deal, a very bad deal that leaves Iran in possession of the capability of arming itself with nuclear weapons, that fills its coffers with a lot of money and enables it to continue its terrorism and aggression in the Middle East.
To defeat ISIS and let Iran get nuclear weapons would be to win the battle and to lose the war. We can't let that happen….
We will continue to take action and lead the international effort against Iran arming itself with nuclear weapons. We will do everything and take every action to thwart a bad and dangerous agreement that would cloud the future and the security of th[...]
What I do think it is very important that everyone takes stock of the leverage that we have to get North Korea to return to the six-party talks and negotiate seriously the dismantlement of its nuclear weapons program.
The other aspect, when we look at it from the pragmatic point of view, suppose Iran develops one or two, three or four rudimentary bombs, can it really compete with a country like the US in this regard? Can it be on par with any other country that h[...]
I would like to discuss the ways to prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons capability. I believe that this is the greatest challenge to the security of the world.
The need for missile defence in Europe is real and I believe it's urgent. Iran is pursuing the technology that could be used to produce nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles have increasing range that could deliver them.
After a comprehensive review I have determined that we can ensure the security of America and our allies, and maintain a strong and credible strategic deterrent, while reducing our deployed strategic nuclear weapons by up to one third.
The combination of a regime with a very radical agenda, together with a distorted sense of reality, as is clearly indicated by the statements we heard today, put together with nuclear weapons, I think that's a combination, a dangerous combination, t[...]
The sufferings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki shall not be repeated. We must devote ourselves to the abolition of nuclear weapons and the realisation of world peace.
A deal between Iran and the so called P5+1 is still possible provided that they overcome two massive challenges of satisfying hardliners on both sides, and reassuring Israel that Iran is not after nuclear weapons.
If the Israelis (had not been) the obstacle, we (would) have had a nuclear weapons free zone in the Middle East for the last 30 years. Therefore this is the main obstacle.
Rather than acting to regain the world's confidence, Iran's leaders are moving ahead brazenly with enrichment, continuing their determined step-by-step effort to acquire the material, technology and know-how to produce nuclear weapons.
First, it is not legally binding, relying on the goodwill of all the nations involved. And another key question is just how far-reaching the deal is when Russia, the country with the largest stockpile of nuclear weapons in the world, has refused to [...]
The latest steps by Iran convince Russia that Iran indeed does not intend to produce nuclear weapons and we will continue to develop relations in all sectors, including peaceful atomic energy. We hope Iran will strictly stick to all agreements with [...]
We can't tolerate North Korea's nuclear weapons. We're here to urge the people of South Korea to work together to completely denuclearise the North.
North Korea should drop its nuclear weapons, missiles, provocations and threats, and become a responsible member of international society. This is the only way the North can survive.
We cannot understand how this membership of NATO can provide better opportunities for combating international terrorism, for combating the proliferation of nuclear weapons, for facing all other challenges and threats, which we have as common challen[...]
The second point concerns the accusations made by the Agency. It said that Iran wanted to focus on pre-2003 studies to develop nuclear weapons. We have said several times that to make such accusations, they must first provide evidence.
Is this a smoking gun? Its's close to a smoking gun but it's still not enought to that Iran has an active nuclear weapons programme.
The (intelligence community) has high confidence, high confidence, that Iran had a covert nuclear weapons programme, that it has never acknowledged and continues to deny. The IC has high confidence, that Iran halted its covert nuclear weapons progra[...]
If the parliament can run education, then why can't it run the economy? If it can be trusted to run the health service, then why can't it represent Scotland internationally? If it can be trusted to protect our old people, then why can't we protect t[...]
Well the countries that have nuclear weapons seem to believe they have to keep them, especially as other countries in the world are improving and upgrading their systems. It's part of the military tools. At the same I believe that NATO will remain t[...]
Above all, they deceive themselves into believing that Iran is giving up its goal of developing nuclear weapons. I heard a few faint condemnations of Iran from the international community after we intercepted this murderous shipment.
America did not ask for this war, and every American wishes it were over. So do I. But the war is not over and it will not be over until either we or the extremists emerge victorious. If we do not defeat these enemies now, we will leave our childre[...]
The United States will take concrete steps towards a world without nuclear weapons. To put an end to cold war thinking we will reduce the role of nuclear weapons in our national security strategy and urge others to do the same.
Rohani doesn't sound like Ahmadinejad but when it comes to Iran's nuclear weapons program the only difference between them is this: Ahmadinejad was a wolf in wolf's clothing. Rohani is a wolf in sheep's clothing. A wolf who thinks he can pull the wo[...]
North Korea's continued pursuit of nuclear weapons is a path that leads only to more isolation.
I believe that it's time for the rest of the world to wake up. The great challenges that we face, the great danger to the world, is not from Jews building in our ancestral capital in Jerusalem, it's from nuclear weapons in Iran, those weapons that a[...]
In many ways, nuclear weapons represent both the darkest days of the Cold War, and the most troubling threats of our time. Today, we have taken another step forward in leaving behind the legacy of the twentieth century while building a more secure f[...]
American leadership can also be seen in the effort to secure the worst weapons of war. The Iranian government now faces tougher sanctions, tighter sanctions then ever before. And on the Korean peninsula, we stand with our allies South Korea and insi[...]
You see we do not recognise the state of Israel, but we have never ever spoken of obliterating people. When we said, when I said when it comes to using weapons of mass destruction, we have completely denied ourselves this right.
But on the other hand, and that is the other track, we have to develop a practical cooperation in areas where we share interests with Russia, for instance, as regards Afghanistan, counter-terrorism, counter proliferation of weapons of mass destructi[...]
The Iranian nuclear issue has great implications for peace and stability as well as the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. I urge again that the Iranian government should fully comply with the Security Council as soon as possible.
We have not thought of making weapons of mass destruction and we are not thinking of it.
We hope that Iran makes the strategic decision that the pursuit of programmes of weapons of mass destruction makes it less and not more secure.
What you will see is an accumulation of facts and disturbing patterns of behaviour. Saddam Hussein and his regime are concealing their efforts to produce more weapons of mass destruction.
We are going to speak with the Iranian leaders. As far as we know, there is no nuclear military programme. We are against all weapons of mass destruction in the Middle East.
If they have proof they have to show it. Everybody has seen the US Secretary of State showing at the UN Security Council the proof of Iraq having weapons of mass destruction. He showed then a tube with a substance that could well have been washing p[...]
