Do not wait: Speak Up for Diplomacy Not War!

Hawaii Under Nuclear Attack!

      The enormous U.S. military presence in Hawaii makes Hawaii and its people (residents and visitors alike) vulnerable to attack and has major ongoing environmental consequences. There is no question that Major military command and force installations on Oahu would be prime targets in the event of any nuclear war. Places such as the Pacific Command at Camp H.M. Smith located above Aloha stadium, Pearl Harbor, Hickam Air Force base, Schofield Barracks, Kaneohe Marine Corps Air Station, the NSA base near Wahiawa, major munition bases at West Loch of Pearl Harbor, Lualualei on the Waianae coast, etc. For decades, there has been a military command plane named the “Blue Eagle” on 24 hour alert at Hickam A.F. Base to take military commanders airborne in the event of any nuclear attack while the rest of us remain sitting ducks. It has been reported that the pilot and copilot on “Blue Eagle” wear eye patches to prevent total blindness from nuclear blast flashes.

      Recently, the Hawaii State Emergency Management Agency has issued a warning that a North Korean missile attack would only involve 20 minutes from launch to detonation. Their only advice is get indoors, stay indoors and stay tuned. Nuclear fallout could cover all the islands depending on which way the wind blows. For more info (it is not good) See

      Hawaii has already suffered effects from nuclear war preparations. Pearl Harbor is a superfund toxic waste site. Liquid nuclear waste has been discharged into Pearl Harbor and more than 2000 drums of solid nuclear waste have been dumped off Oahu’s southern shores. Nuclear accidents –release of radioactive materials (classified top secret) have reportedly taken place on Oahu. Military fuel tanks are leaking and threatening ground water contamination in the Red Hill area near Tripler Army hospital. Depleted Uranium radiation weapons have been used at Schofield Barracks, the Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA) on Hawaii Island and possibly other sites in Hawaii such as Makua Valley and Kaho’olawe. The PTA contaminated sites continue to be bombed with high explosives.

      During atmospheric nuclear weapon testing in the late 1950s and early 60s, 12 U.S. atomic and hydrogen bombs were set off at Johnston Island located 500-700 miles south west of Hawaii. 67 U.S. nuclear tests were done in the Marshall islands in Micronesia. The nuclear flash on Johnston Island could be seen from Oahu. Street lights went out. Later soil testing determined that Hawaii had plutonium contamination. Upper jet stream winds travel west to east and rain brought the fallout down. Plutonium has a half-life of 24,400 years. Depleted Uranium’s half life is 4.5 billion years.

      The late retired Commander-in-Chief, Pacific Command (CINCPAC) Admiral Noel Gayler called for the abolition of nuclear weapons and put forward a proposal in 2000 to achieve this goal. His assessment was influenced by viewing Hiroshima from the air only six days after its devastation on August 6, 1945 by a US nuclear weapon.  He also witnessed the atmospheric testing of thermonuclear weapons in the Marshall Islands in the 1960s.  In his proposal, Adm. Gayler dispels some common illusions concerning the military value of nuclear weapons. See more here
