Please don't ruin this great opportunity for those of us in the Merchant of Death community! If diplomacy is allowed to work, our government might want to try it somewhere else and another war won't be allowed to occur. Please don't let diplomacy squelch our dreams of another great big long-lasting war in the Middle East!
Just a few weeks after the 70th anniversary of the nuclear bombs over Hiroshima and Nagasaki, August 29th marks the International Day against Nuclear Testing.
"What is the point of canceling an agreement that distances Iran from the bomb?" That is the exact question that many American's are asking as Senator Ron Wyden (D-Oregon) holds out on supporting the Iran deal until he talks to some of his friends. That's right. Some of his friends.
Speaking on behalf of indigenous people in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, earlier this summer, Pope Francis apologized for the role the Catholic Church played in oppressing Latin America's indigenous people.
As the nation is buzzing with what will happen in Congress about the Iran deal, WAND would especially like to thank Wendy Sherman for her outstanding efforts on behalf of the peace and security of the United States and the world.
Before the current protests in Ukraine over relations with Russia, Ukraine had to fight to free itself from the Soviet Union. Official independence was declared August 24, 1991 and with it came its own host of problems.

U.S. Republicans, Conservatives and the Israeli Government are playing politics with nuclear weapons. This must stop. People forget that diplomacy, not the military, won the Cold War.
Since the P5+1 deal with Iran -- the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) -- was announced on July 14, there has been much discussion and debate about it, with lots more undoubtedly to come.
If you follow his argument, however, it's actually breathtakingly naive. And if you look at his sources, the column is downright embarrassing.

22 Democratic and 36 Republican members of Congress spent a full week of the August recess in Israel rather than among the constituents they were elected to serve.
The Iran deal is perhaps the most consequential foreign policy issue in a generation. Yet the debate over it has too often fallen short of what's needed.
If Congress blocks the Vienna Agreement, it will be a gross betrayal of our closest allies, it will do lasting damage to America's global leadership, and it will clear the path for Iran to advance towards a weapon.
Here's the thing. This audacious lawsuit is a disarmament wedge. Since I wrote last week's column, I've been in touch with Laurie Ashton, the lead attorney for the case in U.S. federal court, and have read the brief appealing the suit's dismissal, which was filed last month. To get this close to the case -- to its language, to its soul -- is to feel possibility begin pulsing in a unique way.
