  • Title: Nukes Are Nuts
    Descriptive info: Comments.. E-mail this Page.. Printable Version.. Related Articles.. August 22, 2013.. NAPF RSS Feeds.. This article was originally published on.. Truthout.. When asked by a reporter why nuclear weapons are useless, Colin Powell, former US secretary of state and four-star general said: "Because they're such horrible weapons.. And so no sane leader would ever want to cross that line to using nuclear weapons.. And, if you are not going to cross that line, then these things are basically useless.. " In other words, one could say, nukes are nuts.. There are innumerable global security issues that need to be addressed, some of which are poverty, terrorism, the climate crisis, pollution of the oceans, loss of biodiversity and forest depletion.. Not one of these issues can be addressed with nuclear weapons.. In fact, nuclear weapons draw much-needed resources away from solving these global problems.. Nukes are nuts.. Nuclear weapons are justified by their possessors for nuclear deterrence, but nuclear deterrence is only a hypothesis about human behavior.. While "no sane leader would ever want to cross that line," even the best of political and military leaders can be less than rational at times, particularly when they are under stress.. Nuclear deterrence is only as sound as the craziest political or military leader with a finger on the nuclear button.. Does the name Kim Jong-un raise any concerns? Nukes are nuts.. Nuclear weapons are weapons of vast overkill.. They are equal-opportunity destroyers of men, women and children.. The radioactive effects of these weapons cannot be contained in time or space.. They affect not only the living, but generations yet to be born.. Their radioactive material will affect  ...   more than two times that of building them out of solid gold.. Nuclear weapons take away resources from the education of the world's children, medical treatment from the world's sick and infirm and food from the world's hungry.. Nuclear weapons divide us when we need to unite to find cooperative, diplomatic and nonviolent solutions to the great global issues of the 21st century.. Only nine countries have nuclear weapons and, of these, only two countries, the US and Russia, possess more than 90 percent of the more than 17,000 nuclear weapons in the world.. Nukes are not useful, nor are they status symbols.. Every man, woman and child on the planet can understand that nukes are nuts.. So, if we understand that, what are we going to do about it? My answer is to wage all-out peace with a sense of urgency until the last nuclear weapon is eliminated from the planet.. We would be nuts to settle for anything less.. David Krieger is President of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation.. Related Links.. More articles by David Krieger.. Add a comment.. Thomas Heck.. 09-05-2013 19:43.. This is a wonderfully compelling essay, not just because of its clear and lucid reasoning, but also because of the three-word refrain that ends every paragraph.. Good rhetoric in service of a superior message.. Thank you, David.. Write more, and let's be sure to spread these essays around!.. Yoshi Wilk.. 10-03-2013 19:37.. Thanks so much for these very very truthful and clear words of explaination.. I don't yet know why so many people lack such a fundamental understanding of these truths.. I understand you.. And thanks.. Nuclear Age Peace Foundation..

  • Title: Nuclear Famine
    Descriptive info: Issues.. Nuclear Weapons.. > Nuclear Famine.. Recent peer-reviewed studies, done by atmospheric scientists Alan Robock (Rutgers), Brian Toon (University of Colorado-Boulder), Richard Turco (UCLA) and colleagues, predict that even a relatively limited nuclear war between India and Pakistan, in which each side uses 50 Hiroshima-sized nuclear weapons against the other's cities, could create immense firestorms that would quickly surround the planet with a dense stratospheric smoke layer.. The black smoke would be heated by the sun, lofted like a hot air  ...   large fraction of sunlight from reaching the Earth s surface.. The sharp reduction of warming sunlight would reduce growing seasons would cause the starvation of up to 1 billion people.. Nuclear Famine Resources.. Nuclear Famine:..

  • Title: Delegitimizing Nuclear Weapons: The Role of Citizens and Hibakusha
    Descriptive info: November 04, 2013.. This article was originally published by.. Nuclear weapons ended World War II.. Nuclear weapons prevent war.. No rational leader would use nuclear weapons.. Nuclear weapons make countries more secure.. Nuclear weapons are needed to protect against a nuclear attack.. Let s examine these beliefs, and check their basis in fact.. At the end of World War II Japan was trying to surrender.. Nearly all of its major cities had already been destroyed by conventional bombing.. With the Soviet entry into the war in the Pacific on August 9, 1945, Japanese leaders knew they had no chance to prevail.. It wasn t nuclear weapons that ended World War II.. It was the Soviet entry into the war in the Pacific.. Nuclear weapons caused massive suffering and death in a country that was already defeated and trying to surrender.. It is said that the threat to use nuclear weapons has prevented war, but actually many wars have occurred during the Nuclear Age.. Nuclear weapons have not caused wars, but they also have not prevented wars.. Countries with nuclear weapons have thankfully been reluctant to use them, even when losing a war.. Examples include the US in Vietnam, the UK in the Falkland Islands, and the Soviet Union in Afghanistan.. Actually, a presumably rational leader, Harry Truman, did use nuclear weapons on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.. There is no guarantee that another rational leader in possession of nuclear weapons will not decide that the use of these weapons is in his or her country s best interests.. In addition, not all national leaders are rational at all times and particularly in times of stress.. Some national leaders are simply not rational, even under normal circumstances.. They actually do not.. If a country has nuclear weapons, it is certain that it will also be targeted by nuclear weapons.. The ability to retaliate with nuclear weapons does not assure that another country will not attack you by accident or design; it only assures that you can retaliate.. This would be small compensation after a nuclear attack.. Not so.. The best protection against a nuclear attack is the global elimination of nuclear weapons.. If there are no nuclear weapons on the planet, no country can be attacked.. What Nuclear Weapons Really Are.. To delegitimize nuclear weapons, people need to understand what nuclear weapons really are and really do.. They need to understand that nuclear weapons undermine their security rather than enhance it.. They need to call these weapons by their true names: devices of mass annihilation and instruments of omnicide (the death of all).. When we speak of nuclear weapons, we refer to the most deadly and dangerous weapons ever created.. This is how retired US Air Force General George Lee Butler, once in charge of all US strategic nuclear weapons, describes nuclear weapons:.. Nuclear weapons give no quarter.. Their effects transcend time and space, poisoning the Earth and deforming its inhabitants for generation upon generation.. They leave us wholly without defense, expunge all hope for survival.. They hold in their sway not just the fate of nations but of civilization.. Religious leader and Nobel Peace Laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu has an equally strong view of the nature of nuclear weapons:.. Nuclear weapons are an obscenity.. They are the very antithesis of humanity, of goodness in this world.. What security do they help establish? What kind of world community are we actually seeking to build when nations possess and threaten to use arms that can wipe all of humankind off the globe in an instant?.. Importance of.. Hibakusha.. No group of people can reach the hearts of their fellow humans and make clearer what these weapons really are than the.. hibakusha.. , the survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.. That is why their words and their pleas are so important.. They have lived with the  ...   responsibility to pass the planet on intact to new generations.. Nuclear weapons are incompatible with these ethical foundations.. As the ultimate mass killing device, they are the antithesis to reverence for life.. They divide countries and their inhabitants into nuclear haves and have-nots.. They are an assault on human rights and life itself, and their possession and threat of use are a violation of our responsibilities to humankind as a whole and to future generations.. Immediate Goals.. Immediate goals include:.. either a treaty or individual pledges by all nuclear weapons states of No First Use of nuclear weapons;.. de-alerting of nuclear arsenals; and.. commencement of negotiations for a Nuclear Weapons Convention for the phased, verifiable, irreversible and transparent elimination of nuclear weapons.. Our best hope for the human future is to unite in support of the abolition of nuclear weapons.. National security must give way to planetary security through the acts of individuals joining together with compassion, commitment, creativity and cooperation, and acting with courage.. We need to awaken from our slumber and be the noble people we are capable of being.. When nuclear weapons are abolished, it will be time for a new C : celebration.. We can celebrate our gift to ourselves and to the future.. Why Work to Abolish Nuclear Weapons.. I will conclude with 12 reasons to work to abolish nuclear weapons.. We can change the world in important and necessary ways.. We can take a giant step forward for humankind.. We can join with others in demonstrating good stewardship of the planet.. We can take control of our most dangerous technology.. We can help shape a more decent common future.. We can end the threat of omnicide posed by nuclear weapons.. We can uphold international law for the common benefit.. We can lead the way toward ending war as a human institution.. We can meet the greatest challenge confronting our species.. We can put compassion into action and action into compassion.. We can help to protect everything in life that we love and treasure.. We can pass on a more secure world to our children and grandchildren and all future generations.. Murray Richard Tingey, Levin,New Zealand.. 11-17-2013 01:23.. We are mostly like a person in a small boat who is enjoying looking-up river as he gets carried closely towards the Niagra Falls edge with foam ear plugs and ear muffs, with his head inside a bottomless cardboard box.. He is saying that "It's good that I'm on the safe part of the river.. " We would say that he is suicidal or insane, which can also be a combined condition.. The safe bit of the river is like when people can follow a group to a garage sale who later find that it is on Sunday and not Saturday, but the people sitting around the items there, encouraged the others to think that it had already started.. It is the way people follow like sheep.. We should all wake up and realise that the lack of general alarm about nuclear weapons is a mass hysteria of complacency in the face of a dire emergency for the human race.. It's good to read how David points out the hard facts to dispel the dilusions, as the small boat rider would also urgently need.. I think that the International Peace Symbol is a good test of public officials' opinion.. For instance, to ask a city or town's Mayor and Council to display a permanent one and a half metre International Peace Symbol in a public park or central square.. They may say that it is too political as I was told with this proposal for a temporary weekend, mown, mini putt course on a public park.. www.. perm.. webs.. com.. It's actually as unpolitical as any sign could be, because it's about what we all want, regardless of nation or politics..
