French Nuclear Forces 2005

Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists:
Though France is a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and is bound by Article VI's goal of nuclear disarmament, it shows no signs of giving up its remaining arsenal. Instead, it is making plans to develop, procure, and deploy new nuclear weapons, and to maintain its existing arsenal without nuclear testing, for years to come.

Political Analysis of the 2005 Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference

Hon. Douglas Roche, O.C.:
  The Seventh Review Conference of the Non-Proliferation Treaty, failing to agree on any substantive item, showed the deep fissures in the international community on nuclear weapons. Despite an urgent appeal for action by U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan, who painted a picture of a nuclear catastrophe in one of the great cities of the world, the delegates of 153 countries could not rise up above petty disputes over the Conference agenda and at times sank into acrimony.

"Deadly Deadlock", a political analysis of the 2005 Review Conference of the Non-Proliferation Treaty was written by Canadian Senator Emeritus Douglas Roche, O.C., Chairman of the Middle Powers Initiative and former Canadian Ambassador for Disarmament.

Live 8 Organizers Ignored the Impact of Militarism on Poverty

PEJ News
- Joan Russow, Global Compliance research Project: It was estimated by Live 8 that one child dies of preventable causes every 3 minutes or if extended would be 3,400 children die per day. Live 8 organizers could have mentioned that 2.7 billion (US) is spent per day directly on the military. (An intentional omission or just an oversight!) In1992, estimated costs per year for global social justice - approx 500 (US ) billion.

G8 Protesters to Blockade Nuclear Submarine Base

Faslane Coalition - YOU CAN'T END POVERTY UNLESS YOU END WAR: ?The hidden hand of the market will never work without a hidden fist. McDonalds cannot flourish without McDonnell-Douglas, the designer of the F-15, and the hidden fist that keeps the world safe for Silicon Valley?s technology is called the United States Army, Airforce, Navy and Marine Corps.?  - Thomas Friedman, New York Times, 1999


Faslane is a Royal Navy submarine base on the Clyde 30 miles (45 km) from Glasgow and 60 miles (90 km) from Gleneagles. It's the largest military base in Scotland and home port for all four British Trident nuclear armed submarines. Nuclear weapons are the ultimate expression of militarism. By blockading Faslane we're striking at a key part of the British military establishment and building on a history of highly successful and peaceful mass blockades.

This will be the biggest and most effective yet.

The US war with Iran has already begun

Americans, along with the rest of the world, are starting to wake up to the uncomfortable fact that President George Bush not only lied to them about the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq (the ostensible excuse for the March 2003 invasion and occupation of that country by US forces), but also about the very process that led to war.

On 16 October 2002, President Bush told the American people that "I have not ordered the use of force. I hope that the use of force will not become necessary."

We know now that this statement was itself a lie, that the president, by late August 2002, had, in fact, signed off on the 'execute' orders authorising the US military to begin active military operations inside Iraq, and that these orders were being implemented as early as September 2002, when the US Air Force, assisted by the British Royal Air Force, began expanding its bombardment of targets inside and outside the so-called no-fly zone in Iraq.

Scientists Condemn Inaction on Nuclear Weapons

The Council of the Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs is greatly concerned about the recent failure of the Seventh Review Conference of the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), held in New York in May, to deliver a final document with concrete indications on how to progress towards the reduction and ultimately the elimination of nuclear weapons, as called for when the NPT entered into force in 1970. The difficulties and even the possibility of a collapse of the nuclear non-proliferation regime, the weakening of the taboos in place since 1945 on the use of nuclear weapons, coupled with the dangers of a terrorist group detonating a nuclear explosive device, combine to produce a recipe for potential unmitigated disaster.
