‘De-nuclearization,’ as this term has been coined by politicians and pundits, of North Korea, and the Korean Peninsula in general, has been in the news regularly of late. What hasn’t been in the news, and what was classified as “top secret” for many years, was a series of letters between John F. Kennedy and Nikita Khrushchev back in the early 1960’s. They were discussing, of all things, ‘de-nuclearization’ of the U.S. and Soviet Union. Total de-neclearization. In the book The Kennedy-Khrushchev Letters, Khrusshchev, in one of his correspondences wrote that he wanted a treaty on general, and complete, nuclear disarmament “…under the strictest international control.” Note: People say that neither country is using their nuclear weapons now. But they are. Both countries are using them to, not only protect themselves, but to wield “big sticks” in getting other countries to do their bidding. What’s more, in using them (it costs $50 billion a year to maintain the U.S.’s nuclear arsenal), America, for instance, is taking food, clothing, shelter, medicine… out of the hands of, say, the Third World poor. You have to wonder how God looks at that, don’t you. Our military and foreign policies look squarely through this lens.
