The Rising Threat

Of Nuclear War

A Very Important article was published on April 23, 2021 by writer Caitlin Johnstone entitled

              “The Rising Threat of Nuclear War – The Most Urgent Matter in the World.”      


     You can read the full article here: https://popularresistance.org/the-rising-threat-of-nuclear-war/ I have also posted it on our website http://www.malu-aina.org/ As Johnstone notes “our world’s increasing risk of nuclear war barely features in mainstream discourse.” But that’s not the case for the US Strategic Command, more commonly called STRATCOM. It is increasingly prepared to fight and “WIN” a nuclear war even if it means the total destruction of the earth and civilization as we know it. For current generations, the possibility of nuclear war has been on the back burner, mostly out of sight and out of mind. Now, increasing tensions with nuclear armed Russia over Ukraine, and potential flashpoints with nuclear-armed China in the China Sea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, India, and any number of other possible fronts, the potential for global nuclear war has been pushed to the front burner at increasingly high heat. But do we see it?  And what are we going to do about it?

      Hawaii is at the center of this Nuclear high heat. Camp H.M. Smith in Aiea Heights above Aloha Stadium is the headquarters of the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command. This command center covers more than half the earth for all branches of the US military. There are more than 100 military installations in Hawaii, including major force centers for the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines, including nuclear forces. Nuclear submarines are based in Pearl Harbor. B-2 Strategic nuclear bombers are deployed from joint base Hickam-Pearl Harbor. Reaper Killer drones (unmanned aerial vehicles – UAVs) are based at Kaneohe Marine Corps Air Station. All these troops, and their weapon systems (including nuclear weapon systems) train at the 133,000-acre Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA) in the center of Hawaii Island.

STRATCOM, and all of us, need to learn an important lesson before

it is too late.

There are NO WINNERS in a nuclear war! There is No Place to Hide!

The Only Shelter is Peace Built on a Foundation of Justice for All!

1. Mourn all victims of violence. 2. Reject violence & war as solutions. 3. Defend civil liberties.
4. Oppose all discrimination, anti-Islamic, anti-Semitic,
anti-Hawaiian, anti-Black, anti-Asian, etc.
5. Seek peace through peaceful means and work for justice in Hawai`i and around the world.
