Nuclear propelled missile explodes? What next? Join Voices
We need to talk hard and fast about global nuclear disarmament. Every day in 2019, there is something happening in the world that pushes the doomsday clock in the wrong direction.
Russia has been testing a Poseidon underwater drone which would have an enormous yield, nuclear payload. It is being called and described as an Intercontinental Nuclear-Powered Nuclear-Armed Autonomous Torpedo.
Early in August, something blew up north of Moscow about 500 km. What was it? The Russian government is keeping that secret even from the Russian people.
Poseidon is meant to destroy whole cities and kill millions.
America too has raised its annual defence spending, now reaching toward a trillion dollars annually at to over 800 billion dollars. Washington is upgrading and expanding its nuclear arsenal.
Join Voices for nuclear disarmament and push hard to get this issue into the elections that are being held around the world over the next 36 months.
