First Canadian Peace Organization Report on the NPT Review Conference

The NPT Conference meets at a time when the Treaty faces pressures from
potential proliferators and the compliance record of several non-nuclear
weapons states is in question. At the same time, the nuclear weapons states retain their arsenals, the policies to use them, and programs to upgrade them.
Despite these challenges, the member states parties have not yet agreed to an
agenda for the meeting to enable them to commence substantive work. This prevents the conference from moving to the work of the main committees, where more detailed substantive work takes place. In the meantime, platitudes and declarations are all we're hearing.

Greenpeace: Last chance for Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty

Tensions on the first day of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty Conference currently being held in New York are threatening to derail the relevance of the treaty, Greenpeace warned today. "If the 2005 conference fails to reach consensus, the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty will exist in name only."

IRAQ ATTACK WORLD LAUNCH!
"? if perhaps we?d sold ?em trees instead of guns and bombs, there?d be a green field for us all to play on."

After thirteen years in the planning, prepare for an "invasion of your senses" as Iraq Attack is launched upon the unsuspecting World. No need to head for the bomb shelters, rather the headphones, as Michael Hardwick debuts his "hotter-than-a-burning-oilfield" musical satire, Iraq Attack.

Software Aspects of Strategic Defense Systems

This brilliant analysis by Professor David Parnas stands as true today as it was in 1985. Massively complex systems of ballistic missile defense software can only be tested in actual battlefield conditions in order to iron out all the bugs. You can't expect them to work right the first time. In other words, don't trust your life to highly complex star wars software.  -- Al Rycroft, PEJ News

Communications of the ACM - December 1985 - David Lorge Parnas: A former member of the SDIO Panel in Support of Battle Management explains why he believes the "star wars" effort will not achieve its stated goals.

Our Greatest Threat: The Coming Nuclear Crisis

When the first atomic bombs destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki, it could hardly have been imagined that nearly sixty years later 34,145 nuclear weapons would be in existence. Beginning tomorrow, a conference of the 188 signatory nations to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) will be held in New York City to put a spotlight on this problem. But will the eight nations that possess nuclear weapons-the United States, Russia, the United Kingdom, France, China, India, Pakistan, and Israel-actually take steps toward eliminating their arsenals?
The prognosis is not good.
