UN OUTRAGE! NUCLEAR WEAPONS NATIONS BOYCOTT TREATY TALKS

A MURDERER's ROW OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS NATIONS AND THEIR ALLIES IS BOYCOTTING SCHEDULED UN TALKS ON THE ELIMINATION OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS.
                                               
                                                  
                                                


Last October, 120 countries voted to proceed with formal discussions on the proposed Treaty at the UN.
The talks are to decide and vote on "a legally binding instrument to prohibit nuclear weapons toward the goal of total elimination."

The Obama administration voted "No!"

Now, in a clear indication that the Nuclear Weapons Industry is in charge no matter who sits in the Oval Office, the US throughTrump appointee UN Ambassador Nikki Hayley, is calling for and leading this outrageous, immoral boycott.

                                                     
                                               



Their position is that We, the people, of the US and the world should not even be allowed to discuss this Urgent Life And Death Issue in a global forum.

Ambassador Haley made the moral miscue of chastising those governments that favor the Treaty talks: "...are they looking out for their people?"
  She even dusted off the old canard that such thinking (a Nuclear Weapons Ban) is "unrealistic." Seventy plus years of kicking the Nuclear Armageddon can down the road and this is still their argument.
                                                 
                                                



Still not done, she trotted out the sad joke that the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty has become - thanks to non-compliance by the very same signatory Nuclear Armed Nations over the course of decades.Note the "Disarmament" requirement:


                                           
      



The MARSHALL ISLANDS' Lawsuits vs. those nations for "non-compliance" is currently pending.
                                                   
                                                  
                                                   



WE ARE RUNNING OUT OF TIME!

2,000 scientists have signed an "Open Letter" endorsing the Treaty talks at the UN.CLICK


                                                 
  


POPE FRANCIS sent his message of support for the Treaty talks:
"an ethical and moral exercise in hope."


In opposition sits a small circle of Nuclear Nations foreign ministers and ambassadors who represent an even smaller, unelected and unaccountable circle of officials, who allow only themselves to make these ultimate decisions for all of us.

That circle ultimately shrinking to one individual - a President or Prime Minister - who will, ALONE, decide whether or not to Launch - thereby committing the Omnicide of Humanity and of all unborn future generations.
                                                  


   

                                                   

                                                    
                                                  

                                                       
                                                 
  



Add Accident, Mistake, Malfunction, Human or Computer Error and it is easy to see a Nuclear Holocaust looming just over the horizon.
                                                   

                                                 
                                             
      
                                             

                                                   




NOW, MORE THAN EVER, IT IS TIME FOR NUCLEAR ABOLITION IN OUR TIME

Time to make a stand. For your families, your children and your childrens' children and for the Present and Future of Humanity.

To paraphrase Abraham Lincoln:
THIS COULD BE OUR LAST, BEST HOPE!



                                                       



WE ARE ALL WE HAVE. THIS WORLD IS ALL WE'VE GOT.

TRUMP'S NUCLEAR "SHOCKER" NEW YORK TIMES,MARCH 6, 2017

PLEASE SEE TODAY's NYTS EDITORIAL



We can only hope that the world avoids Nuclear Armageddon until January 2021 when Nuclear Weapons sanity will once more prevail as our "Would be President" storms off into Early Retirement.

And now thanks to Mr. Trump's comments like "What Treaty?" and "What's the Triad?" the European Union itself is now considering its own Nuclear Weapons Force!

NUKES: LUCK IS LIMITED AND TIME IS SHORT!

NYTS "Nuclear Arms in Very Wrong Hands"

Please read the New York Times "Letters to the Editor" by clicking above.
                                                   

                                               
 

As stated in Ira Hefland's letter, "There are no right hands to control these weapons."
But now "We have placed our entire arsenal in the very wrong hands of Donald Trump."




                                                         



He concludes:"these weapons are simply too dangerous to exist".
(Also see our previous Blog Post below)

H-Bomb Physicist Kenneth W Ford writes:"There is simply no rationale for the use of Nuclear Weapons, even in response to a nuclear attack."
Further: "The correct number of Nuclear Weapons in the world...is zero."
                                                    

                                                  




Robert Dodge correctly states that having Nukes turns us into "suicide bombers."


                                                 






He concludes: "We now know that it is sheer luck that we have not destroyed the planet with our arsenals. Luck isn't a security policy, and eventually runs out."







ABOLITION IN OUR TIME BEFORE WE RUN OUT OF TIME

AND LUCK!

STOPPING PRES. TRUMP'S FIRST STRIKE NUCLEAR OPTION!

Just two days ago, Jan. 24, Sen. Edward Markey (D-Mass.) introduced a  Senate Bill (S-200) to do just that!
                                         

                                               



"RESTRICTING FIRST USE OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS ACT 2017".
                                                  

                                                



The same bill (HR-699)was introduced in the House of Reps by Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA).
                                                    

                                                   



The bills would prohibit POTUS from launching a world-ending Nuclear First Strike without a Congressional Declaration of War - as required by our US Constitution.
                                                    

                                                   



This legislation is introduced while the Bulletin of Atomic scientists has reset the "Doomsday Clock" to two and a half minutes until Midnight! The closest the clock's hands have been to Midnight since 1953 and the advent of the world's first hydrogen/thermonuclear bombs.
                                                 

                                             https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/26/science/doomsday-clock-countdown-2017.html    


The legislation has the strong support of former Sec of Defense William J Perry who stated that launching a First Strike "would likely bring about the end of civilization", "a decision that momentous... should have the checks and balances called for by the US Constitution."
                                                

                                                  



If we care about our world, our lives and future and the lives and futures of our children and grandchildren - we must support this Bill. It is a Moral Imperative.

END THIS ONE MAN NUCLEAR MONARCHY NOW

The award-winning documentary will show in detail the near loss of the state of Arkansas due to a mishap in a Nuclear Silo in September 1980.

Such catastrophic threats are still with us unless and until Nuclear Weapons Abolition is achieved in our lifetimes.

We cannot keep hoping that nothing... Nuclear War, Accidental Launch, Miscalculation...will ever happen. It only takes one such event to destroy humanity and the world.
