    Didn't the USA violate the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons by helping Pakistan get Nuclear weapons?

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2007/oct/13/usa.pakistan

    Did Russia and China vote against North Korea in the UN only because it is the only way to remain in the NPT? If so, why was the USA able to help Pakistan get nukes and remain in the treaty today?

    "Barlow was relentless in exposing what he saw as US complicity, and in the end he was sacked and smeared as disloyal, mad, a drunk and a philanderer. If he had been listened to, many believe Pakistan might never have got its nuclear bomb".

    This may help explain why. The whistle blower was smeared and discredited, and helped sweep U.S. actions under the table.

    Because the Bilderberg Group, the Freemasons and the Elders of Zion said so.

    Duh.

    Nice sarcasm.
    Seriously though, can a nation remain in the NPT if they help another nation acquire nuclear weapons?
    I once heard that Russia and China voted for sanctions against the DPRK so they could then profit more from illegal smuggling into the DPRK. That would explain the self serving interest of the vote. Have you heard of another reason they voted that way?
