Please, keep on signing this petition and spreading word about it, it is topic right now in UN as governments of UK and US have expressed their opposition to talks about preventing an arms race in space... ...CAMPAIGN FOR COOPERATION IN SPACE

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/832338563

China, Russia Object to Weapons in Space

China and Russia yesterday told a U.N. body that the threat from
space-based weapons would be equal to that posed by
weapons of mass destruction, Reuters reported (see GSN, May 11).

The U.N. Conference on Disarmament is looking to begin negotiations on
preventing an arms race in outer space. The United Kingdom and United
States have expressed their opposition to such talks (see GSN, May 18).

Russian Ambassador to the conference Valery Loshchinin likened the
weaponization of outer space to the “emergence of a new type of weapon
of mass destruction.”

“If there are no weapons in outer space, no room for the use of force, then there
will be no arms race there. We must nip it in the bud,” he said.

“A world free of outer space weapons is no less important than a world
free of the weapons of mass destruction,” said China’s ambassador to
the conference, Cheng Jingye.

“The development of outer space weapons keeps progressing quietly and relevant military doctrine is taking shape,” he said.

The White House is expected issue a new space policy for the first time in
a decade this month, according to Reuters (Stephanie Nebehay, Reuters/Yahoo!News, June 8)

I wonder if June 08, 2006 4:00 PM

bush and cheney are racking their brains right now, trying the best they can to find out a strategy of bombing iran and n.korea that will look the most acceptable to the UN and the rest of the world

you know, like the gov did in vietnam

lies and false information

You know, i think they might actually have a chance at this bombing thing, because, depending on where you live, people finally becoming intelligent and turning against bush may NOT be the case.

down in the  bible belt, there are still many people who say they can't believe how many people are still for bush. It's like the norm in some places

I quite honestly believe they are not that stupid! June 08, 2006 3:55 PM

Maybe they would love to 'nuke' Iran - but they know what the effects would be - and they just wouldn't know if the whole world would go up!  It wouldn't just be a couple of bombs on Iran as they did on Japan!   They were the only ones with the bomb then - it's different now.  And where would the fall-out go?  Even if nobody nuked them back?  I grew up with the threat of nuclear war!  Until there is multilateral disarmament there is always the possibility!  If they totally lose their marbles!!!  Maybe I should look out the sandbags again for under the kitchen table.  Protect and Survive - what a joke!!!    [ send green star]
 
Petition June 05, 2006 6:54 PM

Signed the petition June 5, 2006.  The whole world needs to work together to make sure that Bush's empire goes down.  I fear for North America and now in Canada, we have Harper, who seems to want to be a Bush twin....it scares me for my family and friends.

Thanks for adding this!

US Citizens - Campaing against Threatening with Nuclear Weapons May 31, 2006 2:02 PM

Some Things Should Never Be On the Table 1:08 PM

Some Things Should Never Be On the Table

Iran's nuclear aspirations are long term, and require problem management rather than crisis escalation. To that end, we need negotiation and realistic planning, not rash talk of using nuclear weapons in Iraq.

That's why we're asking Representatives across the country to join Cong. Ed Markey's (D-MA) call to the President to take nuclear weapons off the table in its dealings with Iran.

Threats of the "nuclear option" undermine America's role in lowering the danger from nuclear weapons, and make other non-nuclear countries less willing to commit to renouncing nuclear technology. If a non-nuclear country like Iran can be threatened, non-nuclear states validly begin to wonder what is to stop a nuclear power from threatening them?

Smart, tough diplomacy has a history of producing satisfactory resolution to international problems. Escalating rhetoric is needlessly escalating this problem. Whether it was our relationship with China in the 1970's or America's history with the Soviet Union before its collapse, diplomacy has been an effective way to keep threats to America in check.

On the other hand, a nuclear attack would produce sever, lasting damage. In addition to the devastating effect of the explosion itself, which would spread nuclear waste across South Asia, any nuclear attack would inflame the very extremism it was intended to suppress and shatter the international taboo that has made the use of nuclear weapons unimaginable since the end of World War II.

We need as many legislators as possible to join Rep. Markey. Please contact your member of Congress today!

Military to drop 700 ton bomb near Western Shoshone region, Nevada May 17, 2006 9:28 PM

Military to drop 700 ton bomb near Western Shoshone region, Nevada       

The U.S. Military is going to drop a a nuclear bomb in Nevada.
Here is the location of it.

May 20, 2006 12:30 PM to May 20, 2006 03:00 PM
Vandenburg Space Command
Ryon Park in Lompoc (corner of Ocean and O St)
Santa Barbara County, Six Miles North of:
Lompoc, California 93436     

Those who are interested in the event protesting it in Nevada, please visit
www.vpeaceldf.org and download the flyer announcing this protest event.

The United States Gov't has decided to ignored the United Nations' assertion that
dropping a 700 ton bomb (near the Western Shoshone Reservation (Nevada) on May 28)
is a violation of Human Rights.

We cannot continue to let the United States Government undermine human rights on its own
turf. The effects of nuclear explosions and fallout are well documented. We cannot
allow this to continue.

Here are some links on how to help.

Please contact your Senators and Congressmen/women about this issue and get
them to oppose this!

http://www.senate.gov
http://www.congress.org/congressorg/home/

Contact local media or national about this!

EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT FROM THE UNITED STATES IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THIS BOMB
DROPPING BE PROTESTED! AS LONG AS THE USE OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS IS ALLOWED AND 'TESTED',
THE THREAT OF DESTRUCTION BY NUCLEAR WEAPONS IS POSSIBLE. AND ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS
AND SUFFERING BY THESE WEAPONS WILL BE GUARANTEED IF THEY ARE STILL ALLOWED TO BE
USED!
