- Peace Garden: No More!

No More!

Sunday, August 05, 2007

Between August 6 and 9, the anniversaries of the U.S. atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, demand an end to the U.S. wars in the Middle East and the global abolition of nuclear weapons, starting with our own.

As carried out against Iraq and threatened against Iran, the specter of nuclear weapons in the hands of "rogue" states has become the United States' number one excuse for waging war.Yet the threatened first use of nuclear weapons remains the "cornerstone" of U.S. national security policy. The U.S. has about 10,000 nuclear weapons, is designing new ones, and is pouring billions of dollars into its nuclear weapons research and production complex! Who is threatening whom?

Sixty-two years after the U.S. killed 200,000 civilians by dropping atomic bombs on two densely populated cities, we call on groups to expose the continuing, grave and immediate threats posed to the world by U.S. nuclear hypocrisy, and to directly confront the U.S. corporations that are perpetuating and profiting from a worldwide nuclear crisis and the wars in the Middle East.
