The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

To February 3rd – Nuclear News

Henry Kissinger, long term and still influential political adviser, told the Senate Armed Services Committee last week that a pre-emptive strike on North Korea was “tempting”and “a rational argument”. And, with Trump’s new  Nuclear Posture Review, the world moves even closer to the brink. With the nuclear weapons race, is the unthinkable now becoming a comfortable idea?

I think of the “Me Too”movement – to change the situation of women being sexually exploited by predators,  and of this being covered up by men in power. And it is surely now time for a “Me Too” movement  – as insane decisions are being made about nuclear weapons by men in power.

 

Media silence on Julian Assange‘s precarious situation.

USA. Trump’s Nuclear Posture Review considers Russian “doomsday weapon”, though it might not be real.  Top U.S. nuke envoy says Washington wants talks with N.K. for denuclearization . Nuclear poker: Trump’s dangerous game. Daniel Ellsberg says that Trump is leading us into nuclear war. Pentagon plans  U.S. South Korea war games as soon as Winter Olympics are over.

The USA nuclear lobby is now trying to tie up longterm tax-payer funding for Small Modular Nuclear Reactors.

UK.  Britain’s Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE) wants to increase its radiation releases by over 2,000 per cent.  The dangerous job of specialist scuba divers hauling radioactive trash out of Sizewell nuclear fuel storage pond. The expensive hunt for robots that might help clean up UK’s Sellafield nuclear waste horror.

  1. Thank you for this. I don’t know how you manage to keep up so efficiently and summarize so well. Kissinger has become a major friend-advisor to Putin. He was there with Trump when Russian foreign minister Lavrov and the then Ambassador Kislyak were visiting the day after Trump fired the FBI director Comey. North Korea was a client state under the USSR and Putin made it one again. So, I don’t understand what this means – perhaps just support for the military industrial complex? A diversion? I’m sure the answer is there. A former Polish agent alleged that Kissinger was KGB agent “Bor”. I think if we could crack who and what Kissinger really is, then we would know a lot. Maybe he’s connected to the mafia? I forget his real family name, but it’s not Kissinger, they adopted that later. I think it was Loeb, like the Loeb banking family. A Loeb was mayor of Memphis when M L King was assassinated, while trying to help the sanitation workers there.

    I agree totally on the predation. History shows that those who act as predators to the environment, also acted as predators to women – literally rape and pillage. Thus, the indigenous ancestry is most often evident in women’s chromosomes-mitochondria and the male y chromosome indicates the invaders. Trump and Putin are predators on every level. Predators can work as teams only to fight later over the spoils.
