Peace on Earth!

No Nukes in Space or Any Place – land, sea, and air.

No nukes period!

space

Last week a SpaceX rocket exploded in a fireball at the SpaceX site in Texas. “Fortunately,” reported Lester Holt on NBC TV’s Nightly News, “no one was aboard.”

But what if nuclear materials had been aboard?

Elon Musk, founder and CEO of Space X, should get the loony of the century award. Musk wants to explode 10,000 nuclear bombs over Mars to warm up the planet for habitation. His SpaceX company is selling T-shirts emblazoned with the words         “Nuke Mars.”

Karl Grossman: It’s not just a bad idea, it’s a deadly one.

Before we look into space, we need to Malama (take care of) this place!

A Brief History Of US Military Poisoning Of Hawai’i

Wednesday, December 9th, 2020

A Brief History Of US Military Poisoning Of Hawai’i
By Ann Wright, Kyle Kajihiro and Jim Albertini, Popular Resistance.

Poisoning the Pacific:

The US Military’s Secret Dumping of Plutonium, Chemical Weapons, and Agent Orange, a new book by Japan-based journalist Jon Mitchell, is a detailed investigation and documentation of U.S. and Japanese military chemical and biological poisoning and pollution across the Pacific, Asia and South East Asia. Mitchell’s work doesn’t cover the U.S. military poisoning of Hawai’i as that would require a separate volume due to the concentration of the U.S. military bases and their pollution in the state. -more-

Dec. 11, 2020 Hilo Peace Vigil leaflet on Supremacy of the Military Budget

Tuesday, December 8th, 2020

The Supremacy of the US Military Budget!

If there if one thing Democrats and Republicans agree on it is the supremacy of the U.S. military budget. It’s a battle in Congress to get Covid relief funds, but no problem funding the US War machine. Waging war for corporate interests of the US Empire is a bipartisan issue even in a season of “Peace on Earth – Good Will to All” amidst a global pandemic.

Playing God is Dangerous!

The U.S. and Israel are pushing Iran to the brink of War. Earlier this year Trump ordered the killing of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani. Recently, all the evidence points to an Israeli assassination of Iran’s top scientist, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, with U.S. and Saudi consent. Now even President elect Joe Biden is saying Iran is moving closer to nuclear weapons. Hypocrisy seems to be the American way. Have we forgotten that the US has one of the world largest stockpiles of nuclear weapons, and is developing a wide range of new “usable” nuclear weapons? Have we forgotten how the US CIA overthrew the democratically elected Prime Minister of Iran in 1953 and installed a dictator –The Shah of Iran who remained in power with US backing for 26 years until the Iranian revolution of 1979? Ever wonder why Iranians hate the US?  See The Long Shadow of the 1953 CIA Coup in Iran here https://malu-aina.org/?p=7092

The U.S. is not just pushing Iran to the brink of war. The U.S. is pushing the entire world to the brink of war. The US keeps lashing out at Iran and other nations. The US Director of National Intelligence, John Ratcliffe, now says “China poses the greatest threat to America today, and the greatest threat to democracy and freedom worldwide …” Let’s not forget about the US waging war in at least 7 countries over the last 2 decades, orchestrating coups, and bashing Russia, Venezuela, Cuba, Iran and a host of other nations who will not submit to American domination.

The late legendary TV news anchor, Walter Cronkite once said: “War itself is, of course, a form of madness. It’s hardly a civilized pursuit. It’s amazing how we spend so much time inventing devices to kill each other and so little time working on how to achieve peace.” Cronkite was right!

It’s Time for Peace NOT More War!

4. Oppose all discrimination, anti-Islamic, anti-Semitic, anti-Hawaiian, etc.
5. Seek peace through peaceful means and work for justice in Hawai`i and around the world.
