  • Do You Do Nothing or Do You Resist? - Adbusters | Journal of the mental environment
    brothers poor in terms of money but rich in our love of family We love each other as brothers do Our wives are in the kitchen preparing food for our children We do our best poor and impoverished surrounded by war brought in the form of occupiers from halfway around the world The sound of rifle butts banging on the door shatters the semblance of peace You my brother go to the door quickly but not quickly enough The door slams open and the soldiers from another land come storming in With weapons pointed at our heads they shout orders which we believe tell us to put our hands on our heads and get down on our knees We are not sure English is a language brought to us not our mother tongue Our wives come to the room frightened begging the soldiers to calm down for the sake of the children in the other room The soldiers respond by shouting at our wives and pushing my wife to the ground with their assault rifles Our hearts are racing our manhood is being crushed and we wonder if we are men at all The shouting and the chaos increase Next comes the sound of your baby girl You hear her crying for her mother You imagine her look terrified Thinking of your little baby girl you feel tears on your face You look at your wife she is now on the ground bleeding from where the rifle butt slammed into her head In the chaos you do not even know when this happened The soldiers begin throwing all that we own everywhere overturning furniture throwing papers and family items to the ground and breaking dishes They ransack while one demands to know our names As soon as I say my name they grab me and take me into the next room the room between you and our children They begin to beat me mercilessly They are shouting at me but you do not know what they are saying Now all the children are crying frantically the soldiers keep yelling and you catch the word terrorist You realize that they are calling me your brother who you have known your whole life a terrorist I plead with them to stop the beating blood drenching every inch of my face for the sake of the children who are by now screaming crying and begging for their mom and dad I beg All you can think to do is nothing You are paralyzed And eventually the soldiers take me away You will never hear from me again Your children are alive for now and your wife will survive but she is scarred Your sister in law is without her husband you are without your brother your parents are without their son and the children are without a father You find out later that someone gave your brother s name to the soldiers as a terrorist And so you ponder do I do nothing

    deep and 1 200 feet in diameter Within one second the atmosphere itself ignites into a fireball more than a half mile in diameter The surface of the fireball radiates nearly three times the light and heat of a comparable area of the surface of the sun extinguishing in seconds all life below and radiating outward at the speed of light The world has courted this fate before President Kennedy resisted the urging of his advisers to strike first against the Soviets during the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962 Flocks of geese a weather satellite and misinterpreted training tapes have given the Americans and Russians false positive attacks over the years A Russian colonel named Petrov watched in 1983 as Kremlin radar showed a massive American nuclear strike arriving over the North Pole He hesitated to wake the Soviet premier to authorize a counterstrike sparing the world for long enough for someone to realize it was a technical glitch Such momentary delays may continue to preserve life on this planet At the point of launch men have been known to quail even in drills That s why Rosenbaum reports Cold War subs carried tommy guns at the entrance to the engine room to ensure compliance Faced with the prospect of simply pretending to exterminate tens of millions of people even trained soldiers and sailors revert to their humanity But whereas those near misses were played on a chessboard with only two nuclear actors today s game is populated by at least nine players in various states of desperation The world now has fewer nukes but in more hands Rosenbaum counts three likely points of origin for nuclear war The first is the standby that we blithely forgot since the fall of the Soviet Union Despite watered down arms reduction treaties such as the 2010 New START the United States and Russia remain poised to order and deliver death for several hundred million humans in the time it takes to watch a sitcom Those two nations with military establishments still vested in maintaining their arsenals hold 90 percent of the world s 23 000 odd nukes in underground silos in aging but active bombers and in submarines still lurking in the deep The second flashpoint is the Middle East which has greater will but less capability for Armageddon There are a few people on the planet who sincerely don t believe Iran is seeking the ability to produce nuclear weapons Rosenbaum writes The stone age tribesmen of Papua New Guinea for instance are perhaps blessedly unaware of the possibility The third is Pakistan with its blend of martyr ready fundamentalism and perpetual nuclear yard sale The old bipolar equations that by dint of continued luck and blips of conscience kept the Cold War cold are now a cat s cradle of strategic concerns Consider as Rosenbaum does at length a nighttime aerial strike in the summer of 2007 that saw Israeli jets destroy a Syrian site that was by the determination
