Music by Dean Stevens and the Peace Singers

73 years ago today, the US dropped atomic bombs on Nagasaki, It is 48 years since the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty took effect, and almost one year since the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) opened for signing.  Yet the five original nuclear weapons states, led by the United States, have not signed the TPNW, nor followed through on their commitments to abolish nuclear weapons,.

After threatening North Korea with “fire and fury”, President Trump held a summit meeting with Chairman Kim Jong-un, but much work remains to resolve the nuclear crisis with North Korea and bring peace to the Korean peninsula

It is the United States’ 6,500 nuclear warheads, and the other nuclear powers, that pose an imminent threat to humanity.  The President can launch a civilization-destroying nuclear war on his sole authority.
