Currently, the U.S. has three peace museums nationwide. However, there is no shortage of memorials and museums that highlight our weapons, technology, and bombs.
Thank you, Mr. Edwards, for sending Godzilla to correct the balance. His monster accurately conveys the view held by many security experts today: Whatever value nuclear weapon may have had during the Cold War, they are now a major liability, not a security asset.
And the Cold War itself -- this deep, unspoken commitment to mass suicide -- merely went on hold. And now it's back, with the two sides still in command of thousands and thousands of nuclear weapons.
Godzilla is coming to a screen near you on May 16, Hollywood's latest action-packed thrill ride. But will it keep faith with the original Godzilla -- one of the world's first anti-nuclear movies?
The U.S. should tone down the rhetoric and concentrate on the core issues for worldwide peace and accept the Crimean reality. The solution will evolve slowly, if we let it.
The gathering celebrates the legacy of synthesizer mastermind Robert Moog and the generations of musicians he influenced -- all in the burg where he stationed his musical instrument factory before his death in 2005.
On February 4, 2010, the Supreme Council of National Defense of Romania approved the installation of the missile shield at Deveselu, in Olt County. This shield is meant to defend all states that benefit from it and protect them against possible missile attacks.
While the shouting but, notably, not shooting continues in the Ukraine crisis, and the Middle East peace process collapses, President Barack Obama is in the middle of his four-nation Asia-Pacific tour. How's it going, amidst very predictable distractions from Russia and Israel? Fair to middling.
In a nuclear war involving as few as 100 weapons anywhere in the world, the global climate and agricultural production would be affected so severely that the lives of more than 2 billion people would be in jeopardy.
From our provincial position, 'evil' nations like North Korea should not have dangerous weapons. From their provincial position, our possession of nuclear weapons provides a practical and moral imperative that they have equally deadly capabilities.
Is there an emotional connection between the oceans and the pursuit of peace? For whatever reason, peace ships have been increasing in number over the past century.
There's no debating we would all be better off if there were less and better-guarded highly enriched uranium and plutonium. But the summit missed an essential point: "Nuclear security" is an absurd proposition in a world bristling with more than 17,000 nuclear weapons.
Some have suggested that if Ukraine had retained their nuclear weapons, Russia would not have invaded and captured Crimea. This is absurd.
The idea that the world we create at a personal level can influence if not determine the sort of world we create at the national and international level seems naïve, perhaps, unless one looks at the default alternative, consigned to us by the media: that our role is to be a spectator in the global wrestling arena.
Apocalyptic imagery has again lost its attraction through repetition over the past several decades. The use of a post-apocalyptic setting has now become fairly well-established in fiction.
I don't advocate armaments, but the Ukrainian and global community's impotence to release Russia's grip highlights the practical value of nuclear energy and weapon-based deterrence. This lesson is not lost to foreign policy and military strategists around the world.
