We need PEACE instead of provoking war with Russia.

November 7, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

As soon as the Russian Revolution occurred in 1917, the U.S. treated that nation as an enemy.  Although the Soviet Union was an ally with the U.S. in opposing Nazi Germany, when Japan was ready to surrender in 1945, the U.S. unnecessarily dropped two atomic bombs on Japan — partly in order to intimidate the Soviet Union.  For many decades from 1945 until the USSR collapsed in 1991, the U.S. kept treating that nation as an enemy with whom we were locked in a Cold War that was ready at any moment to destroy the entire world with nuclear weapons.  […]

Weaponizing space is VERY DANGEROUS!

August 29, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

The “national security” baloney that has caused many stupid, endless wars — and the extremely dangerous nuclear weapons arms race since the 1940s — is escalating into space, regardless of the 1967 treaty that prohibits militarizing space. Trump — and now Biden — have been making Planet Earth more dangerous.   Karl Grossman, one of the world’s top experts on space weapons, wrote this powerful June 16, 2021, article on escalating U.S. warfare in space”  “New Space Force laboratory opens: A breakdown on space warfare ‘autonomy.’”  It includes this quotation:  “The U.S. imperial war project, now marching headlong into the […]

People wrongly assume nuclear weapons “deter” attacks on us. Let’s help people let go of the “deterrence” assumption.

June 19, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

The general public, politicians and mainstream media all WRONGLY ASSUME that nuclear weapons “deter” attacks on the U.S.  This wrong assumption is nearly unanimous.  It is a HUGE BARRIER to moving them to reduce and abolish nuclear weapons.  In order to make progress toward peace, we absolutely must help the public, politicians and media LET GO OF the “deterrence” assumption. The “deterrence” assumption locks people into insisting that we must continue having nuclear weapons.  The “deterrence” assumption PREVENTS THEM FROM HEARING our messages about reducing and abolishing them.   The people who are working to abolish nuclear weapons do recognize […]

STOP this horribly dangerous, expensive new nuclear missile that Biden seems to support!

April 26, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

President Biden seems likely to proceed with the horribly expensive and horribly dangerous replacement of ALL nuclear warheads and delivery systems (land-based missiles, submarines, airplanes).  The article linked here discusses some of that, especially the replacement for the Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBMs) with a new $100 billion Ground Based Strategic Deterrent (GBSD), a land-based nuclear missile, which is slated to replace the aging Minuteman III Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM). https://mronline.org/2021/03/13/whats-behind-the-biden-administrations-new-100-billion-nuclear-missile-system/   Tell Congress to STOP funding and PREVENT approval of the nuclear weapons mentioned above. The information in the links below alerts people to the dangerous, expensive new nuclear missiles […]

Biden did extend New START with Russia to limit nuclear weapons

March 24, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

Trump pulled the U.S. out of many international agreements and organizations (the Paris Climate Agreement, World Health Organization, one or more organizations supporting human rights, etc.) and several deals about nuclear weapons, such as the Iran nuclear deal (the JCPOA) and the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty that Reagan and Gorbachev signed in 1987 so they could eliminate an entire category of provocative nuclear weapons from Europe. The last remaining treaty between the U.S. and Russia regarding nuclear weapons was New START.  Russia was eager to continue it, but Trump opposed simply renewing it.  Trump pretended that he wanted to […]

This smart article debunks the myth that nuclear weapons “deter” war.

March 24, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

Most Americans believe the government’s propaganda that nuclear weapons are a “deterrent” that has protected us from war.  Actually, during the Cold War, neither the U.S. nor the USSR wanted to start a war against the other.  But the existence of thousands of nuclear weapons on hair-trigger alert meant that a nuclear war could have started – and destroyed the world – if an accident or miscalculation or computer error had occurred.  The “deterrence” myth persists now 30 years after the Cold War.  People who want to abolish nuclear weapons need to debunk the myth that they have deterred war.  […]

Accidents, miscalculations, computer errors could cause a nuclear war and destroy us all.

March 24, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

The routine propaganda claims that nuclear weapons keep us safe. The truth is that nuclear weapons might — at any time — kill us all through accidents, miscalculations, computer errors or other unexpected problems. HERE ARE INFORMATION ITEMS ABOUT THIS:   Newly released documents shed light on 1983 nuclear war scare with Soviets: The Soviet Union put fighter-bombers loaded with nuclear bombs on 24-hour alert in East Germany during a NATO nuclear weapons command exercise in November 1983, and the alert included “preparations for the immediate use of nuclear weapons,” according to newly released U.S. intelligence records that confirm a […]
