Trump, Our Cartoon Nobel Peace Prize Nominee

The allied attack on Syria dramatically illustrates Trump’s schizophrenic approach to the Syrian conflict.

(SAN FRANCISCO)  On May 1st, 18 Republican members of Congress sent a letter  to the Norwegian Nobel Committee, nominating Trump to receive the award for his work to “end the Korean War, denuclearize the Korean peninsula, and bring peace to the region.” No this isn’t a joke or a piece from The Onion.

U.S. wants more “usable” nuclear weapons in Europe

europenukesThe policy of placing U.S. nuclear weapons in Europe violates local laws.

David Swanson for Global News Centre

(SAN FRRANCISCO)  The United States keeps nuclear weapons in Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Italy and Turkey, in violation of the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), which bans the transfer of nuclear weapons from a nuclear weapon state to a non-nuclear weapon state. Now, the U.S. wants to upgrade its nukes in Europe, to make them “precision” and “guided,” and therefore more likely to be used, even as tensions build between the United States and Russia.

Iran political fulmination versus diplomatic deal

(CHICAGO)  Blessings upon New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof for pointing out that “fulmination” is the right word to describe opposition to the diplomatic deal President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have just reached with Iran and the P5+1 major world powers. 

The Nuclear Agreement with Iran is good for the US

irannucleardealThe main opposition to the agreement with Iran comes from Israel. The Israelis fear Iran dominance in the region and want an Iran hobbled by sanctions.

(SAN FRANCISCO)  On July 14th, the U.S., China, France, Germany, Great Britain, and Russia reached an agreement with Iran to “to limit Tehran’s nuclear ability in return for lifting international oil and financial sanctions.”  In reality, the negotiations were less about curbing nuclear proliferation and more about international trade and U.S. prestige.  On balance, this Iran nuclear agreement is realistic, pragmatic and, on balance, good for the U.S.

Opponents of the agreement wanted an Iran unconditional surrender.  However, these were negotiations — a dialogue between Iran and six nations with a goal of reaching a mutually beneficial outcome.

“Sowing the Wind” at Los Alamos and “Reaping the Whirlwind” at Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Chernobyl, Three Mile Island and Fukushima”

(DULUTH) 70 years ago this week (July 16, 1945), an assortment of foreign scientists, the original group of which were mostly refugees fleeing European fascism, succeeded in exploding the first experimental atomic bomb.

The site of detonation of the plutonium bomb (which was essentially identical to the one that ambushed and destroyed Nagasaki a few weeks later on August 9) was in the desert outside Alamogordo, New Mexico. The site of the blast was to become blasphemously known as the Trinity Site. Trinity was the code name for the experiment and the Manhattan Project was the code name for the US Army’s secret project to develop atomic bombs, with the stated intent to use them against military targets in Nazi Germany. That is, until Germany surrendered before any of the bombs were ready to launch.

Dr. James Wall Global News Centre

(CHICAGO)   Iran and six world powers (including the U.S.) have reached an unexpected political agreement for a final Iran nuclear deal.

Iran Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif broke the news on April 2, with a twitter message that the negotiators have “found solutions; ready to start drafting immediately”.

We have “succeeded in making history,” Zarif said at a follow-up press conference at Lausanne, Switzerland. He added: “If we succeed, it is one of the few cases where an issue of significance is solved through diplomatic means.”

Hopefully this essay will promote discussions in this so-called “Christian” nation about the ethics of making murder for the state (and its corporations) while simultaneously – and illogically – professing allegiance to the teachings of the nonviolent Jesus.

Gary G. Kohls, MD  Global News Centre Guest Columnist

(WASHINGTON DC)  69 years ago an all-Christian bomber crew dropped “Fat Man”, a plutonium bomb, on Nagasaki, Japan, instantly annihilating tens of thousands of innocent civilians, a disproportionate number of them Japanese Christians, and permanently or mortally wounding uncountable numbers of others.

In 1945, the US was the most Christian nation in the world (that is, if you can label as Christian a nation whose churches overwhelmingly fail to sincerely teach or adhere to the ethics of Jesus as taught in the Sermon on the Mount).

The Hiroshima Myth and the Glorification of American Militarism

The historically-illiterate Americans are prevented, again and again, from learning “unpatriotic” historical truths that might shake our confidence in the ruling elite, the Pentagon and the conscienceless multinational corporations that control our politicians and the stock market.

Gary G. Kohls, MD  Global News Centre Guest Columnist

(WASHINGTON DC) This coming Wednesday, August 6, 2014, is the 69th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima, the whole truth of which has been heavily censored and mythologized ever since war-weary Americans celebrated V-J Day on August 15.

The concentration of sperm samples declined in the study’s timeframe by 36 percent from an average of 106 million sperm per milliliter of ejaculate to 68 million in 2009. (Article first published in 2012).

(TEL AVIV Haaretz) The growing mass of research pointing at the decline in the quality of Israeli male semen is joined recently by a study conducted at the Hadassah University Hospital-Mt. Scopus, which found a 15-year decline in the quality of semen donated by Israeli sperm donors.
