- Canada's unwitting role in latest nuclear race
Date: Fri, 29 May 1998
Subject: WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM OUR FRIENDS -- THE REST OF THE STORY!
A most useful source of facts from today's Toronto Star. Everyone talks about nuclear non-proliferation but everyone continues to make big bucks spreading the necessary technology around the world while saying don't you dare! Reactors from Canada and the USA, missile technology via China via campaign contributions via the USA, nuclear capable jets from Russia, and for Pakistan actual bomb designs from China.
And we can't understand why a lot of the third world think our sacred arms control agreements are worthless, and why they speak of disarmament instead of arms control?
This is also why sanctions against India and Pakistan are likely little more than a short-term joke. There is too much money to be made spreading this technology around.
If the public does not want global nuclear proliferation then the public has to be willing to step forward and demand total and universal nuclear disarmament, and we in the activist community must be willing to reach out to the public at large and undertake the slow and difficult process of education and organizing required to insure public involvement. If not, the money will keep on rolling in and the nuclear weapons technology will keep on rolling out.
