Introduction: Avoiding Nuclear Attack Against the United States
Welcome to my new website, bringing you information, news and analysis devoted to avoiding nuclear war. More specifically, it is focused on avoiding nuclear attack against the United States. I believe the world is being driven ever-closer to the brink of strategic nuclear war by U.S. aggressive first-strike threats and encirclement of Russia, China and North Korea, with U.S. weapons poised to make a crippling first-strike against these nuclear-prepared nations.
I’m a 75-year-old Northern California resident who has intimately watched the increase and decrease of threat of nuclear attack against the U.S. for so long I can feel a major move toward actual nuclear war in my blood and bones. The advent of President Donald Trump, soon followed by relentless threats from Mr. Trump to destroy North Korea unless it gives up its nuclear weapons program, really has put the United States in great peril of nuclear attack.
Although I believe that neither North Korea nor its long-time ally, China, want to make a crippling nuclear strike on the U.S., the more Mr. Trump threatens first-strike against North Korea, the more U.S. military deployments threaten possible first-strike against China, the more likely it is that, by accident or out of fear of imminent U.S. attack, China, North Korea, or even Russia may launch a crippling nuclear strike against the U.S.
Because the current drive toward war involving nuclear attack against the United States is, I believe, controlled by U.S. nuclear policy, the U.S. could unilaterally save the world from nuclear war by changing its strategy of escalating-first-strike threat to a posture of deterrence only, and withdrawing threatening weapons and maneuvers from the borders of Russia, China, and North Korea.
The whole world is urgently moving to avoid nuclear war. This year 122 nations signed the Treaty Banning Nuclear Weapons in the United Nations, fulfilling the promise of the U.N. to eliminate nuclear weapons in its first resolution in 1946. Now nuclear weapons are clearly branded as outlaw weapons, making it a war crime to threaten their use. I believe the U.S. should immediately renounce the first-use of nuclear weapons, and sign the Treaty Banning Nuclear Weapons, beginning a process of completely eliminating the U.S. nuclear arsenal.
As I develop this website, I’ll be linking you to effective groups working to avoid nuclear war. I’ll share my writings of decades, especially about my realization that the true threat of strategic nuclear attack against the United States is a high-altitude nuclear electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack that would hurt no one directly, but could instantly destroy the nervous system of our modern electronic civilization.
I hope that the insane nuclear confrontation between the U.S. and North Korea will de-escalate immediately, and lead to fundamental reforms to avoid nuclear attack against the United States. Meanwhile, congradulations to you, my fellow human being for avoiding the detonation of a nuclear weapon in war since August 9, 1945, the day the U.S. bombed Nagasaki, Japan.
