‘Report by Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) says there’s an estimated 13,865 nuclear weapons in the hands of nine states’, Anna Ahronheim, June 17, 2019, jpost.com
I’m going to paste most of the author’s coverage of the report given that the technical information about the different kinds of fissile material used, the delivery systems, the numbers of nukes, etc. can be good to know. What doesn’t seem to be covered, and may not be knowable, is the yield of any of these nukes: blast radius, ‘equaling X tons of TNT’, and so on. My ignorance on the subject is almost total.
I have noticed something disturbing to say the least. I'm sure many of you have heard about the bug apocalypse by now. When I googled it just now, there seems to be some debate on whether it is actually happening or not. All I know is what I can see with my own eyes.
While the attacks on the oil tankers is almost certainly total bullsh*t, there have been attacks within Iraq that the American media has curiously ignored. These attacks are most likely real.
A couple days ago it was at a coalition military base.
A leftist Latin American government, flawed, but democratically-elected, is being undermined by shameless, right-wing crooks and murderers, who are fully funded by the U.S. taxpayer.
When has that ever happened, amirite?
For those who believe that it’s Bolton who’s still in charge of Trump’s Iranian policy, he seems to have handed it to his Secretary of Gunboat Diplomacy, Mike Pompeo, John Kiriakou’s Bolton’s Long Goodbye notwithstanding. Pompeo’s apparently been all over the Sunday teevee talking heads programs urging global solidarity in his/their mission to take on punishing Iran. Trump’s threats a month ago that if it came to war with Iran it would mean ‘the official end of Iran’…, arguably at the behest of his friends Nuclear Netenyahu and Crown Prince bin Salman of the Glowing Orb…may have even gotten tiresome for him.
‘U.N. officials: U.S. planning a ‘tactical assault’ in Iran; the military action under consideration would be an aerial bombardment of an Iranian facility linked to its nuclear program, the officials further claimed’, SHLOMO SHAMIR/MAARIV ONLINE, June 17, 2019, jpost.com
On June 2, Pope Francis completed his visit to a third Balkan country this year and the sixth in that region during his pontificate, but not Croatia. Since his election, the pope has also traveled to ten Latin American nations but not Argentina, and three in Africa but not Rwanda.
Nevertheless, the millions who were tortured and killed must not be forgotten.
(The Victory comes with caveats, of course.)
It’s been a long battle, beginning as early as May 11, 2017. From honortheearth.org on that date:

The right-wing media in Britain is in full freak-out mode over the implosion of the Conservative Party (with it's mishandling of Brexit) and it's implications.
