Can't remove nukes

While I admire and respect former Sen. Jake Garn, I can't disagree with him more on the nuclear weapons issue. I dislike nuclear weapons, but to think you can remove all of these is chimerical at best. We see Iran and North Korea attempting to acquire these fearful weapons. Others will come along and succeed, just as Pakistan and India did. There is no way to stop this from happening as long as despots rule. Unless they are assured that using these monsters will result in the same on their heads, they'll use them, maybe on us.
