The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists kept the Doomsday Clock at an ominous two minutes to doomsday a few days ago. This, it was noted, is as close to doomsday that we’ve been since the Cold War. I was recently reading part of the book Beyond The Cold War. The book notes that a nuclear crises can arise from either a sudden, acute imminent threat; or the gradual deterioration of international relations over time that could lead to the same threat. “The most effective, improvised action to be taken in anticipation of a possible thermonuclear war is evacuation of civilians to shelter in rural areas.” Uh… Conversely, our administration would propose an extremely proactive set of strategies to build peace worldwide through a U.S. Department of Peace. Note: What’s more, Mother Theresa once said, for instance, that abortion can lead to nuclear holocaust as well. [Abortion is legal in all but six countries in the world, with America coming in at a staggering 60 million abortions now, and counting.] So a multi-prong approach would be to mobilize the U.S. Department of Peace strategies, in tandem with ending abortion. And we have a plan for the latter as well.
