U.S. Legitimizes Use of Nuclear Weapons

Bush pushing new “let’s use nuclear” policy…

Under the cloak of secrecy imparted by use of military code names, the American administration has been taking a big – and dangerous – step that will lead to the transformation of the nuclear bomb into a legitimate weapon for waging war.

No longer are nuclear bombs considered “the weapon of last resort.” No longer is the nuclear bomb the ultimate means of deterrence against nuclear powers, which the United States would never be the first to employ.

In the era of a single, ruthless superpower, whose leadership intends to shape the world according to its own forceful world view, nuclear weapons have become a attractive instrument for waging wars, even against enemies that do not possess nuclear arms.

The nuclear policy that the Bush administration continues to formulate, including plans for a preemptive nuclear strike against states that do not possess such weapons and the development of new nuclear weapons – is a recipe for disaster.

This is very dangerous and disastrous. Plans like these should not go through.

This would truly open the doors of hell, dragging the whole world into an even worse cycle of violence and spreadout nuclear war.
