The Impending Dangers of Nuclear War: America’s W88 Thermonuclear Warhead is 30 Times a Hiroshima Bomb | Global Research

Ray Acheson, in her closing statement on behalf of ICAN to the Second Conference included the words ‘The claim by some states that they continue to need these weapons to deter their adversaries has been exposed by the evidence presented at this conference and in Oslo as a reckless and unsanctionable gamble with our future’.

This ground-breaking and historic conference was attended by delegates from 127 countries and 70 nongovernmental organizations. How can we ever be sure that some deranged psychopath will not gain power in one of the nuclear states and deceive him/herself into believing that it is in their best interests to make a first strike? How can we ever be sure that some terrorist organisations will not hack into the electronic control systems and carry out the launching themselves? And we now know that even a small nuclear exchange could be a lethal threat to everyone on the planet. These weapons must be outlawed; ‘in the past, weapons have been eliminated after they have been outlawed. This is being done at a time when many citizens are suffering from inadequate defences against flooding and when the social services are being radically cut back. 

The powerful summary statement of the conference Chair pointed out that the broad participation of states and civil society reflected the burgeoning awareness that this issue is of the utmost importance to all the peoples of the world. Getting rid of them will take courageous leadership by states but such leadership will have the support of civil society. Each bomb on a major city would kill millions of people; women, children, babies, old people, everyone. It is not easy to face up to the implications of these arsenals especially if you bear the primary responsibility. As the great moral leader Desmond Tutu wrote “Nuclear weapons are an obscenity. The nuclear states have become a sorry sight.

It is ironic that the worst offenders are the five permanent members of the ‘Security’ Council of the United Nations. As awareness of the humanitarian impact grows hearts and minds are being changed worldwide. We believe this is the path to achieve a world without nuclear weapons’. Due to ‘…proliferation, the vulnerability of nuclear command and control networks to cyber-attacks and to human error and potential access to nuclear weapons by non-state actors, in particularly terrorist groups’ the risks are ‘growing globally’. The other four nuclear states(Pakistan, India, Israel, and North Korea) too are ‘improving’ their arsenals. It is the turn of the last and most destructive of them all.

The US government has 5 nuclear submarines on patrol at all times carrying 1000 times the destructive power of the Hiroshima bomb3. The suffering would be indescribable and for many would go on for months and years before death. They have had 69 years to get rid of their nuclear weapons while all that the citizens of the world hear from them are windy speeches around purported good intentions which never come to fruition. What sort of people would do such a thing? What kind of human would threaten such an atrocity?  

The Third Conference on the Humanitarian Impact of Nuclear Weapons will be held in Austria later this year. The non-nuclear majority which do not feel the need for a lethal ‘security’ crutch have decided to take the initiative. This is enough to wipe out the entire population of the planet many times over together with all other life forms. India and Pakistan sent observers.

The risks of ‘accidental, mistaken, unauthorised or intentional use is growing significantly due to more countries holding weapons on higher levels of combat readiness’.

The situation is being rendered even more dangerous by the US and Russia who keep 1,800 weapons on high alert atop long-range ballistic missiles that are ready to launch 5 to 15 minutes after receiving an order!

The Second Conference on the Humanitarian Impact of Nuclear Weapons was held in Nayarit, Mexico, on 13 and 14 February 2014. The nuclear states were invited but declined to attend. And rather than focus on the numbers and ‘yields’ of the weapons it was wisely decided to concentrate on the effects on humanity of the use of nuclear weapons. The movement for an international ban is unstoppable.. She insisted that we must act to get rid of them or they will be used by accident, misunderstanding or malicious intent. It included delegations representing 146 States, the United Nations, the International Committee of the Red Cross, the Red Cross and Red Crescent movement and civil society organizations.

Mexico offered to host a follow-up meeting to this conference and such is the vital importance of this approach that other states declared their intention to organise additional events on this subject.

The only remedy is an enforced world ban on the existence of nuclear weapons. It is time we ban nuclear weapons.

Is this sane? Has the human race lost its senses? A single United States thermonuclear warhead, designated W88, has an estimated ‘yield’ of 475 kilotons2.  The ‘yield’ is the destructive power expressed in tons of TNT equivalent. But these 9 are outnumbered by 20 to one. The security of the non-nuclear states is threatened by the irresponsible and self-focused behaviour of the 9 others. It is time to take action 7.’

A single W88 could completely destroy London, Moscow or New York. She concluded ‘It is time to change the status quo. Is it possible to imagine the degree of paranoia represented by such a standing threat? The UK government has started to spend one hundred billion pounds on rebuilding its Trident fleet of nuclear submarines, each one with the capacity to incinerate over 40 million people. In a limited nuclear war between India and Pakistan 20 million people would die from the nuclear blasts, fires, and radioactive fallout. The next logical development, as the nuclear states continue to deny their obligations to shed their arsenals, is for the non-nuclear states to proceed independently to enact a treaty outlawing these weapons internationally. And the fallout would have global consequences that would kill millions of people, disrupt climate patterns, and threaten global agricultural collapse4.

The International Campaign Against Nuclear Weapons (ICAN)8 is a coalition of over 350 organisations in 90 countries. Our belief is that this process should comprise a specific timeframe, the definition of the most appropriate fora, and a clear and substantive framework, making the humanitarian impact of nuclear weapons the essence of disarmament efforts. They are the very antithesis of humanity5…’

After hearing presentations from a wide range of experts on the various effects of nuclear weapon detonations the conference concluded that “it is unlikely that any state or international body could address the immediate humanitarian emergency caused by a nuclear weapon detonation in an adequate manner and provide sufficient assistance to those affected.” Conference members also agreed that the effects of a nuclear weapon detonation will not be constrained by national borders but will produce significant negative regional and global effects6.

She went on to explain that the use against cities of less than one percent of existing weapons would put billions of lives in jeopardy and have a long lasting detrimental  effect on both the planet’s climate and agriculture. No emergency services could begin to cope There would be no relief.

Notes

Citizens of the world have simultaneously become aware that the nuclear states do not intend to get rid of their nuclear weapons and that their existence imposes a permanent and intolerable threat to us all.

And finally there is hope. Humanity owes a great debt to Norway for this initiative.

Their brief and nightmarish ascendancy is over. As we discuss the statistics and strategies of ‘nuclear arsenals’ and ‘nuclear deterrence’ it can be hard to keep in mind the reality underlying the abstract discussions.

 Furthermore decent people round the globe know that the existence of nuclear weapons is a brooding evil which undermines the moral integrity of humankind. The existence of nuclear weapons means they could be used by accident, by misunderstanding or by malicious intent. The other weapons of mass destruction have already been banned.

The nine nuclear states have over 10,000 nuclear weapons in their stockpiles1.

There are 9 nuclear states and there are 183 non-nuclear states. By focusing attention on the humanitarian consequences of their use they are well on their way to doing so.

The first International Conference on the Humanitarian Impact of Nuclear Weapons was held in 2013. Frozen in a realm of outdated thinking which was always inhuman; their leaders frightened and paranoid and prepared to put the survival of humanity in jeopardy simply in order to feel important and powerful as they strut, uncomprehending, on the world stage.

The W88 is over 30 times more destructive than the bomb which wiped out Hiroshima. The huge burgeoning of awareness in the citizens of the world is bearing fruit.

The US, the UK, Russia, China and France are rebuilding or upgrading their arsenals of nuclear weapons. The world has moved on.

 So with these and other major forces at work there is an unstoppable movement towards banning these Armageddon machines. He called for a ‘legally binding instrument’ and declared that the, ‘time has come to initiate a diplomatic process conducive to this goal

CNN – Report: Stolen data gives China advanced nuclear know-how

Those weapons “may be tested in 1999 and could be deployed as soon as 2002,” the report states.

“There are a number of reasons that intelligence services direct information this way,” Cox said. you can learn a great deal about military matters in the United States,” Cox said.

The report also reveals allegations that China stole design information about U.S. insatiable’

But following the failures of some of those launches, U.S.

“What the PRC (People’s Republic of China) has stolen has enabled them to jump over decades of incremental development that were necessary, for example, for the United States,” said Cox.

Details of the Cox report have been trickling out for weeks amid a growing criticism of the Clinton administration’s response to fix the security lapse after it was exposed in 1995.

The report credits Energy Secretary Bill Richardson for making long-needed security improvements to the nation’s vulnerable nuclear labs, run by the Department of Energy.

“Some of the most significant thefts have occurred during the last four years,” Cox said.

Chinese knowledge increased by decades

According to the Cox report, China penetrated U.S. “Ballistic and space launch programs have long been intertwined.”

The sharpest criticism for the theft of U.S. Christopher Cox (R-California), chairman of the House select committee that conducted the year-long investigation.

The CIA later determined that the person who turned over the document worked for Chinese intelligence.

‘China’s appetite … intelligence has determined the technology espionage by the Chinese, dating back to the late 1970s and continuing through the 1980s and ’90s, “has leaped, in a handful of years, from 1950s-era strategic nuclear capabilities to the more modern thermonuclear weapon design.”

The report concludes: Chinese “penetration of our national weapons laboratories spans at least the past several decades and almost certainly continues today.”

All of the weapons could target the United States.

US keeping nuclear warheads in case of killer asteroids

More From Newser

But that runs the risk of having radioactive debris hit Earth, and a Purdue University professor tells the Journal that there are probably better ways to ward off asteroids, including a “gravity tractor” that could change their course.

Authorities say the warheads are being kept “pending a senior-level government evaluation of their use in planetary defense against earthbound asteroids,” reports the Wall Street Journal, which found the information “tucked away” on the 67th page of a Government Accountability Office report on the National Nuclear Security Administration.

Somebody’s been watching Armageddon: American nuclear authorities say they have delayed getting rid of old warhead components because they could help protect the world from killer asteroids.

Saying nukes are needed to defend the planet “may be an excuse for keeping the nuclear arsenal together,” he says. (The asteroid that hit the planet 66 million years ago wiped out the dinosaurs because of very bad timing, researchers say.)

This article originally appeared on Newser: US Keeping Nukes in Case of … Asteroids?

Scientists believe it will be at least a century before any asteroids big enough to wreck the planet are close enough to worry about, but some researchers are worried about smaller asteroids and believe nuclear weapons could be an effective solution, the Atlantic reports.

Labs behaving badly. – Free Online Library

If elected officials ever get around to consolidating our weapons complex, they’ll have to decide whether to also consolidate the design labs. But some members of the task force privately support such a step–which would almost certainly mean shuttering Livermore, the smaller of the two. From the start, scientists at Los Alamos felt undermined by and resentful of Teller and his new facility, which they saw as radical and potentially dangerous. At the end of the Cold War, Livermore scientists reviewed the Los Alamos design for the W88 warhead. Doing so would not only provide the cost and security improvements associated with consolidation of special nuclear material, k would also, in all likelihood, make it easier to reduce the number of weapons scientists employed by the complex–and therefore the amount of federal money for “make-work” designed solely to keep those scientists busy. This infuriated scientists at Los Alamos, who had in fact run the thermonuclear tests that had helped pave the way for the bomb.

The antagonism has its roots in the relationship between the two fathers of the atomic program, Edward Teller and Robert Oppenheimer.

The ultimate truth, say historians, is that the rancor was probably worth it: Thanks to competition between the two labs, America more quickly produced the H-bomb, and therefore had a more effective deterrent against the Soviet Union sooner. The question will be whether these advantages will outweigh the benefits of competition. ‘And if I want to hear what’s wrong with the DAHRT at Los Alamos, I’ll go to people at Livermore.”

In the long and storied history of bureaucratic infighting, few contests have been more vitriolic than the one between our two major nuclear weapons design labs, Los Alamos and Lawrence Livermore. (The production facilities largely work on separate aspects of the process, so there’s no real competition taking place.) The Overskei report neither recommended nor discouraged consolidating the two labs into one. When the H-bomb was eventually produced, Livermore was given most of the credit. Oppenheimer remained more cautious, and Teller soon became convinced that Los Alamos, whose director, Norris Bradbury, was an Oppenheimer ally, was insufficiently dedicated to the H-bomb project. They concluded, wrongly as it turned out, that the design was unsafe, and advised against building it, a judgment that was received at Los Alamos as a slap in the face. All rights reserved.

The bureaucratic competition is not always productive, however. . Livermore scientists, for their part, saw their counterparts at Los Alamos as stodgy and risk-averse. In the late 1940s, Teller began advocating the immediate development of a hydrogen bomb, in response to the news that Russia had built an atomic weapon. But having separate design labs, and a relationship of competition–even antagonism–between them, does make it easier for outsiders to gain access to information about their shortcomings.” If I want to hear what’s wrong with the NIF at Livermore, my best option is to go to people at Los Alamos,” says Hugh Gusterson, an MIT anthropologist who studies the culture of the weapons labs. With the help of Ernest Lawrence, a Nobel Prize-winning physicist and California scientific entrepreneur, Teller persuaded Congress to create a second design lab in Livermore, Calif., which would go full-speed ahead on the H-bomb project

Billboard Artist 100: Rihanna Flops While Taylor Swift Is On Top

In terms of music, 2015 has been a disastrous year for Rihanna. Her two latest singles “B*tch Better Have My Money” and “American Oxygen” have failed to attract the listeners she is used to while many question why her record company keeps delaying her new album. Denzil Blackwood of Miami, FL is one of the fans who have signed the petition at Change.org in hopes of helping Rihanna’s flop.

“I am signing because it is true, they are racist radio station out there… Billboard describes Swift’s achievement.

Rihanna has teased a new song called “Only If for a Night” for her Christian Dior ads, which the Telegraph describes as edgy. The newspaper notes that Rihanna has taken over for French actress Marion Cotillard and joins Charlize Theron, Natalie Portman and Jennifer Lawrence in becoming a brand spokesperson. Rihanna is actually the first woman of color to pose for Christian Dior.. Let’s hope the second half of 2015 is a better year for Rihanna than the first half.

Despite high profile performances, Rihanna is only at No. 19 this week on Billboard’s Artist 100 chart. The petition her fans built up to help Rihanna only seems to hurt her brand rather than help it. Rihanna hasn’t commented on her poor record sales or her fans’ petition, but she may be forced to soon. 53 following the premiere of its celebrity-studded video at the start of the Billboard Music Awards Sunday (May 17), she gains by 8 percent in overall activity on the Artist 100.”

Billboard Artist 100: Rihanna Flops While Taylor Swift Is On Top

Meanwhile, a controversial petition asking Barack Obama to force “racist” radio stations to play Rihanna’s single “American Oxygen” has garnered only 32 signatures after a full week and has been mocked by other websites. 1 for the 25th week. As her new Kendrick Lamar-assisted single ‘Bad Blood’ re-enters the Hot 100 at No. Rihanna lags way behind Ariana Grande (16), Nick Minaj (13), Meghan Trainor (7), and the Queen of Pop herself, Taylor Swift, who is No. Besides not scoring hits at Billboard, Rihanna has also suffered a huge backlash for her outfits and the one she wore at the 2015 Met Gala produced some really harsh venom from commenters.

“Swift scores her record-extending 25th week atop the Artist 100. who only play black people music if it is talking about money bi*ches and violence, song like rihanna’s that address race in this country barely get to be heard over the radio; and that need to be change.”

Let’s hope that Christian Dior doesn’t drop Rihanna as she has become far less profitable than she has in the past

SwiftKey Keyboard for iOS updated with theme store and improvements

Users who have the strange ability to abstain from in-app purchasing can still choose from three free keyboard themes.

SwiftKey also could be monetizing the anonymous keystroke data it collects from users. SwiftKey’s Android app dropped its $3.99 price tag last year in favor of a in-app purchases; now, the iOS version is following its lead. In the app’s privacy policy, it gives fair warning that keystroke data can be aggregated and shared with third-party companies. Its animation and neat parallax scrolling effects warrant the higher price tag.

SwiftKey added 12 new keyboard themes, varying in color and design, to its iOS app. SwiftKey only debuted on iOS last year, after gaining popularity on Android systems. The app also allows for bilingual typing between languages like English, German, Spanish, and French; so, you can say, “sweet dreams, mon petit chou” without autocorrect interference.

SwiftKey’s innovative keyboard app has expanded its selection of keyboard themes on iOS, with a small price tag. The gimmick must be working because it’s currently SwiftKey’s second most downloaded theme, just behind Minimal Coal. The app’s late entry into the iOS market was due to Apple blocking system-wide, third-party keyboards from its App Store. Considering the info is anonymized, put any fears of spying aside.

Along with themes, SwiftKey improved performance by increasing the app’s stability. . The Shooting Stars theme is double the price, at $1.99. You can download SwiftKey from for iOS from the App Store, here. The free app just added a new selection of “freemium” themes to download. The data would likely be used to make smarter keyboards and predictive typing in the future. Most of the themes are only $0.99 each. If SwiftKey isn’t selling the data yet, it retains the possibility to do so in the future

Soccer-Vietnam police detain players over match-fixing claims | Reuters

Police declined to comment.

In April, local side Vissai Ninh Binh withdrew from the V.League over a match-fixing scandal in the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Cup. Soccer is the most popular sport and gambling is rampant, despite being strictly illegal.

HANOI, July 21 Police have detained six Vietnamese soccer players on suspicion of throwing a domestic league game at the weekend, state-run media reported on Monday, the latest arrests in a country notorious for match-rigging and illicit sports gambling.

Local soccer bosses have pushed to legalise sports betting in conservative Vietnam to stifle match-fixing and boost tax revenues, capping bets at 1 million dong (nearly $50), but after 14 years, efforts have proved fruitless.

The six Dong Nai players were questioned by police investigators immediately after their 5-3 defeat by Quang Ninh in a top flight V.League match, Vietnam Television said in an online report (vtv.vn).

Police made dozens of arrests during the World Cup and carried out raids on underground gangs that were handling at least 6.5 trillion dong ($307 million).

Match-fixing has long plagued Vietnamese soccer, with arrests of coaches, bookmakers and players commonplace

San Diego, California News Station – KFMB Channel 8 – cbs8.com

O’Connor gambled in Las Vegas, Atlantic City, N.J., and San Diego.

. “It’s a case in which we’ve agreed that charges will be filed, but they will be dismissed without a conviction, assuming that Maureen has appropriate treatment and conforms to the law for a period of two years.”

O’Connor made the acknowledgement in an agreement with the government to defer prosecution for two years while she attempts to repay the debt.

(Watch a report from KFMB-TV below)

Before entering federal court Thursday, O’Connor defense attorney Gene Iredale said O’Connor suffered a brain tumor, during which time she gambled away nearly a billion dollars of her inheritance, CBS San Diego affiliate KFMB-TV reports.

Iredale said O’Connor’s poor health contributed to the gambling problem and that she took the money to repay her debts, KFMB-TV reports.

SAN DIEGO Former San Diego Mayor Maureen O’Connor acknowledged Thursday in federal court that she misappropriated $2 million from her late husband’s charitable foundation due to a gambling addiction in which she won more than $1 billion but lost even more over nearly a decade.

Her defense attorney estimated the debt at $13 million.

O’Connor was the Democratic leader of California’s second-largest city from 1986 to 1992. The two-term mayor was elected San Diego’s first female leader after eight years on the City Council. The Associated Press contributed to this report.

“She’s not pleading guilty. She’s not going to be convicted of a crime,” Iredale told reporters.

Prosecutors said her gambling winnings amounted to more than $1 billion from 2000 to 2009 but she lost more than that.
