PEJ News
- Joan Russow - Global Compliance Research Project - June 22, 2005: Today in Brussels, 80 nations were called upon to contribute to the reconstruction of Iraq. A high percentage of global civil society and the vast majority of member states of the United Nations were opposed to the US-led invasion of Iraq., and should not be held responsible for the damage caused by the US-led invasion and occupation of Iraq.

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.

An unwinnable war

Paul Rogers - Now Donald Rumsfeld himself ? one of the Iraq war?s leading architects ? publicly accepts that the world?s most powerful military force, deployed by a state that spends almost as much on the military as every other country in the world put together, cannot counter 20,000 or so determined insurgents backed by a minority of the population of Iraq. It is an astonishing moment.

The Nuclear Fiasco in New York
by Michael Wallace

Ho hum. Another UN conference in New York in May, ?full of sound and fury, signifying nothing?. Another set of international agreements dumped in the trashcan by US bellowing rhetoric and hissy ? fit intransigence, predictably provoking in turn the worst behaviour by most other national delegations. At times, the deliberations made one think of pre-schoolers badly in need of a ?time out?, or perhaps the male ? ape threat displays from a Jane Goodall video. Not a chance of getting attention from media preoccupied with such earth ? shattering events as the Michael Jackson trial.

SUPPORT GROWING FOR REMOVING U.S. NUCLEAR WEAPONS FROM EUROPE PDF Print E-mail
Peace News
Saturday, 11 June 2005 13:22
A paper written for the National Resources Defense Council pieces together evidence from an array of sources to show that the United States is still deploying 480 nuclear weapons in Europe. Until now, most observers believed there were no more than half that many still left on the continent. The continuing presence of these weapons irritates relations with Russia, undermines global efforts to dissuade other nations from developing nuclear weapons, and impedes NATO's post-Cold War evolution. The Bush administration and the NATO alliance should address this issue as a matter of global nuclear security and remove all U.S. nuclear weapons from Europe.

At the G8 Reallocate the Military Budget - Cancel Third World Debt

PEJ News:
Throughout the years, through international agreements, member states of the United Nations have recognized that the military budget has been a waste and misuse of resources. Currently the Global Community is now spending 1 trillion per year on the military budget at a time when many basic and fundamental rights have not been fulfilled. At the G8 meeting the Ministers must finally fulfill years of commitments to reallocate the military budget, and cancel the long standing crippling third world debt.

World Military Spending Tops $1 Trillion US: Half is American

In a press release issued by the Stockholm Institute for International Peace Research, scholars claimed that last year for the first time global military expenditures exceeded $1 trilion per annum. The major determinant of the world trend in military expenditure is the change in the USA, which makes up 47 per cent of the world total.

Weapons in Space: To Badly Go

The American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the Union of Concerned Scientists have just released a major report on Weapons in Space which makes two key points: 1) only ASAT (anti-satellite) weapons will be cost-effective space weapons for the next several decades, and 2) US deployment of ASAT weapons could easily be duplicated by other nations, creating a major threat to strategic stability and an arms race in space.
