"Even a 'modest' exchange of nuclear weapons between India and Pakistan would not only devastate South Asia, but thanks to the phenomenon of nuclear winter also cause widespread famine on a planetary scale".   Share:  
Thrust of argument: Tomdispatch.com writes: "On August 7, 1945, a previous age was ending and a new one was dawning. In the nuclear era, city-busting weapons would be a dime a dozen and would spread from the superpowers to many other countries, including Great Britain, China, India, Pakistan, North Korea, and Israel. Targeted by the planet's major nuclear arsenals would be the civilian inhabitants not just of single cities but of scores and scores of cities, even of the planet itself. On August 6th, 70 years ago, the possibility of the apocalypse passed out of the hands of God or the gods and into human hands, which meant a new kind of history had begun whose endpoint is unknowable, though we do know that even a 'modest' exchange of nuclear weapons between India and Pakistan would not only devastate South Asia, but thanks to the phenomenon of nuclear winter also cause widespread famine on a planetary scale." Direction of resistance / implied resistance: Noam Chomsky has written a lengthy explanation of "Why National Security Has Nothing to Do With Security" which even appears on the Guardian.

Removal of resistance: It is very rare that the Guardian gives Chomsky or Chomsky's ideas any space on their publication. But it IS 'Hiroshima Day', and the sight of what's going on in 'Gaza' makes all sane people worry about the future, after all, there are many ways that the nuclear bombs of 'Israel' can cause global apocalypse without anyone 'Israeli' meaning for them to. Unification: Many many ways. Read Chomsky's article. Many times. I will too.
