Nuclear weapons – prolonging the Cold War theatre of the absurd

nukefools-dayRutherford H. Platt: A nuclear theater of the absurd, GazetteNet.com By RUTHERFORD H. PLATT Friday, August 28, 2015 NORTHAMPTON — Doctors Andrew Larkin and Ira Helfand in their columns marking the 70th anniversary of the U.S. atomic bombing of Hiroshima (Gazette, Aug. 6) remind us once again that this planet remains on the slippery slope to self-annihilation.

Amid a whirlwind of competing threats — climate change, natural disasters, economic instability, epidemics, racism, and the international immigration crisis — it is so easy to ignore that we remain on the precipice of nuclear catastrophe from accident, miscalculation, or deliberate intent…….. the biggest absurdity of all is why we allow our government to continue waging the Cold War at endless cost to the nation and at the risk of all humankind. http://www.gazettenet.com/home/18341787-95/rutherford-h-platt-a-nuclear-theater-of-the-absurd
