NO BUSH NUKES!.............Part 2

1,751 HEROIC PHYSICISTS SIGN PETITION AGAINST BUSH NUKES

The standard "mad scientist" character found in books, movies, and cartoons obsessively toils in the "la-bore-a-tory" to unveil and harness some awesome power which can be used to CONTROL THE WORLD! The "demented leader" is another villainous character afflicted with a raging lust for global dominance. Such tyrants typically appear in James Bond flicks, paperback thrillers, and super-hero comic books. Fortunately, in real life, dedicated, responsible scientists are the norm. Mad scientists are rare. Unfortunately, in the real world, demented leaders are not are rare. The planet is littered with leaders who are obsessed with omnipotence. There is even one in the White House.

The good news is that the scientific community has joined forces to defend us from the madness that is so intrinsic to the Bush Administration. A petition was launched in September of 2005 by two physics professors at the University of California in San Diego. The "nuclear policy changes" being pursued by the Bush Administration prompted physicists Kim Griest and Jorge Hirsh to speak out because theirs was the profession responsible for the birth of nuclear weapons 60 years ago.

Concerned that the preemptive use of nuclear weapons by the madmen in the current administration would prompt global nuclear proliferation and eventually lead to all-out-nuclear war, Griest and Hirsh wrote the "Petition by Physicists on nuclear weapons policy" and began circulating it among their fellow scientists. To date, January 21st, 2006, 1751 physicists who recognize the catastrophic danger inherent such cavalier use of nuclear weaponry, have signed the petition. This heroic band of scientists includes nine Nobel laureates!

According to reports in the Washington Post and the New York Times, the unclassified draft document, Doctrine for Joint Nuclear Operations, dated March 15, 2005, would permit the American King to preemptively employ the use of nuclear weapons in the following circumstances:

>For rapid and favorable war termination on U.S. terms.
>To ensure the success of U.S. and multinational operations.
>To Demonstrate U.S. intent and capability to use nuclear weapons to deter adversary use of WMD.
>Against an adversary intending to use WMD against U.S., multinational, or alliance forces.

Former American leaders listened closely to scientific advisors and made effective use of diplomacy. They were responsible for the success of the Nuclear Test Ban treaty and the Nuclear Non-Proliferation treaty (NPT) which have keep the world from nuclear conflit for sixty years. The Bush Conservatives are pushing through nuclear policy changes to further their imperial interests. There are, of course, profits to harvest and what better way to bully other countries into submission than the threat of nuclear annihilation? This belligerent change in U.S. policy will surely inspire the 182 non-nuclear weapon states who signed the NPT, to develop nuclear weapons of their own.

The mad nuclear policies advocated by this administration in the above draft document are in the final stages of being approved as official U.S. policy. The Bush Cabal has proven to have an arrogant disregard for human life, a disdain toward the environment, and to be irresponsible, ruthless, and dishonest. These licentious comic book villians will lead us into unavoidable global nuclear conflict if they are allowed the preemptive use of nuclear weaponry.

Who do you trust 1751 nuclear scientists or George W. Bush and his cronies?
Me, I'm going with the ones who have the REAL educations.

I am glad you liked my post. It is very important to sound the alarm about the pending preemptive use of nuclear weapons by the U.S.

Thank you for recognizing the women who blog and including The "Chronicles" on you list. I like your site as well.

I hope more and more non-fascist American patriots see the danger right here in their own country - and join to fight The War on Tyranny!

Ah, stumbled across your site on BE -- I knew I'd like your site when I saw the "Impeach Bush" banner in the corner! I'm bookmarking your site. Thanks! I'll be looking forward to future entries!

Glad the "Impeach Bush" banner caught your eye and I hope you stop back again. There is a lot of work to do to stop the "anti-democracy" neoconservatives from destroying this country! You are the same age as my daughter. It is nice to know that there are young women who actually "see" that the Bush Administration is "raping" America. There are many of us who are working to protect our rights and freedoms for ourselves, our children, and our grandchildren.

Hmmm...1,751 scientists vs. George W. Bush -- that's a tough decision. Who should we believe :)

You're right, this is definitely going to drive other countries to develop nuclear weapons. And unable to see the cause and effect, our "leaders" will be dumbfounded and horrified and say "Oh my God, look at all these countries with nuclear weapons. We have to stage a pre-emptive invasion NOW!"

The fact that the Bush Admin. even entertains the idea of the use of nuclear weapons should serve as a dire warning to us all. Tonight, on the news, Bush was spoken of as a kind of a father protector of us all. Geez....I am trying to PROTECT my family, friends, neighbors, and country fron the likes of him and the neoconservative power-hungry nuts he hangs out with!!! George W. is an ignorant, weak man - a pretender, and not even a "Great Pretender" at that! NO NUKES FOR BUSH!
