A Nuclear World? What's Your View

US President Bush has asked for $8.5 million in the 2006 budget for research on nuclear "bunker buster" weapons. A single "bunker buster" would be nearly 100 times more powerful than the nuclear bomb that destroyed Hiroshima, and the nuclear blast and radioactive fall-out could kill millions of innocent people in surrounding areas.

If you're opposed to new nuclear weapons, take action and tell the US Senate: No New Nukes!
