The Nuclear Weapons Treaty @ the United Nations / July 2017

 

 

In the US, both major political parties are jointly pushing a trillion-dollar plus nuclear “modernization” program with a next generation of strategic/tactical systems and more “usable” weapons that will expand not reduce the nuclear stockpile. The NPT has been set aside and a more dangerous game is underway. William Perry, former US Defense Secretary and an expert who is as aware as anyone of the risks and realities, is raising an alarm along with many others who are cognizant and warning of escalating danger.
