  • High-Level Briefing on the US Nuclear Posture Review, First Committee Monitor, No 2, 19 Oct 2015
    Pentagon studies showing that further dealerting measures beyond those taken at the end of the Cold War would decrease crisis stability by setting the stage for an unpredictable hard to read re alerting race in the event of a nuclear crisis The current risk of accidental or unauthorized launch is nil it was claimed Because of this and because the risk of a nuclear first strike is judged to be extremely low under the present conditions given the survivability and retaliatory capacity of US forces in their present alert posture de alerting measures would provide no benefit under present conditions Instead de alerting would increase nuclear risk just when it should not be increased i e in a crisis All this was explained in the most general terms the details being classified So there was no discussion or rebuttal of any specific de alerting proposal The nature of the de alerting proposals studied in depth at the beginning of the Obama administration was not revealed There is no possibility of any cyberattack leading to unauthorized or accidental nuclear launch either from within the government or from outside it was claimed Remarkably it was also claimed that no military personnel can

  • MIA ‘leaders’ fiddle as society falls apart, ABQ JRNL, 16 Aug 2015
    are no programs of sufficient scale and seriousness to improve these outcomes None are discussed There are a few tiny gestures of course which fit the definition of insanity often attributed to Einstein doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results to the extent they do anything at all New Mexico is an economically peripheral state in a declining empire Young people are leaving because our missing in action leadership provides little worthwhile for them here despite their eagerness to contribute and despite our abundant renewable energy resources and vast unmet social needs Our political leaders and the donors and party organizations who put them in office simply don t care enough to build on what could be a winning hand primarily because caring about people and the environment would mean spending money instead of just talking and that would mean raising taxes Our bought and paid for economic prognosticators to the extent we have any have been unable to grasp the nettle Invariably discussion tends toward rose colored visions of innovation of attracting the right kind of people with yawning gaps of faith where logic should be and never a discussion of how precisely these miracles would help the people of this state The problem is not just nonexistent lame or insufficient policies Behind these lies something more crippling a delusive belief in the wonders of free market capitalism which supports a level of personal narcissism in the consuming classes that denies any sort of social contract Margaret Thatcher famously said There is no such thing as society people must look to themselves first It s our duty to look after ourselves and then also to look after our neighbor A far wiser person taught something very different You shall love your neighbor as yourself The

    L Doctorow described our postwar devolution The bomb first was our weapon Then it became our diplomacy Next it became our economy Now it s become our culture We ve become the people of the bomb When Ivan quit we became even more of an empire There was nothing holding us back or so it seemed We became the Unipower the Indispensable Nation Just ask us In 1945 as today we sought and still seek to control as much of the world s resources as possible not just to feed our grotesque consumerism but also to satisfy our controlling oligarchs while denying those declining resources to others The 1992 Wolfowitz doctrine spells it out Our first objective is to prevent any hostile power from dominating a region whose resources would be sufficient to generate global power Since the Russian Federation is such a region all by itself this is a formula for destabilization and war both of which are ongoing projects They are not going well Despite or because of all our material and moral sacrifices the only victory in 70 years for America s vast self serving nuclear military complex has been the destruction of our own democracy As a result our children s prospects are nothing short of abysmal Obama has budgeted a trillion dollars to operate and upgrade each and every warhead bomb and delivery system we have a vast expense that is itself dwarfed by the rest of our gargantuan military But there is no plan to wean the U S from oil and gas no plan to address inequality and poverty no serious plan to forestall climate change And no disarmament Seventy years on from Hiroshima there are far more nuclear weapons in the world than when the peace movement started in earnest in the
