The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure. We must all do more to help stop this western corporate arrogance that puts the future generations lives in despair. @BruceKGagnon

Remembering June 12, 1982



Today is the 40th anniversary of 1 million marching in NYC demanding an end to nuclear weapons and nuclear war. Did you know there's an organization that works to keep weapons from spreading to space?

June 12, 1982 was the day I began paying attention to the war in space issue.

After watching C-SPAN coverage on TV of the huge protest in New York, that event was followed by a speech by President Ronald Reagan's Star Wars chief - Lt. Gen. Daniel Graham.

At the end of his speech, during the Q & A, someone asked Gen. Graham about the big protest in NYC. Was he worried about it?

Gen. Graham replied, 'No I think it's great. They are out there protesting against nuclear weapons and we are moving into space. They don't have a clue. Let them keep doing what they are doing'.

That was the moment that changed my life and turned me into a peace in spacenik.
