rt.com: Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev and US President Ronald Reagan sign the INF treaty, December 8, 1987

‘Disastrous decision’: Berlin warns Trump against dismantling INF deal with Russia — RT World News

‘We now urge the U.S. to consider the possible consequences,’ [German Foreign Minister Heiko] Maas said in a statement, hailing the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) as ‘an important pillar of our European security architecture.’

The deal, banning short- and mid-range nuclear missiles and the means of their delivery, was struck in 1987 between then-President Ronald Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev. The agreement has been since regarded as one of the pivotal moments which effectively ended the Cold War and rid Europe of the fear of a full-blown nuclear holocaust.

On Saturday, Trump announced his intention to terminate the treaty. He accused Russia of violating the agreement – something Moscow has repeatedly denied doing. Germany urged Russia to address the US’ concerns, but at the same time cautioned the White House against axing the decades-long deal.

Niels Annen, minister of state at the Federal Foreign Office, called Trump’s idea ‘devastating,’ stressing that his own nation will remain committed to nuclear disarmament. The minister also called on other EU states to prevent mid-range missiles from reappearing on the continent.”

Itch for ‘better INF deal’? Trump’s treaty ‘withdrawal symptom’ destabilizes global order — RT World News

‘The United States would rather pull out because of China. Right now it cannot develop new intermediate-range missiles to confront China, even though China is not a signatory to that agreement,’ former Pentagon official Michael Maloof said, after Donald Trump announced the US intention to scrap the INF treaty.

‘The US is engaged in an arms race with China in the Pacific Ocean, and China has a whole bunch of those missiles that are not covered,’ Iranian political scientist Kaveh Afrasiabi added, calling Trump's announcement a ‘giant leap backward to the Cold War era.’

Maloof blamed Washington for its empty rhetoric and failure to explain what exactly it accuses Moscow of, while Afrasiabi pointed at the US encirclement of Russia by AEGIS ashore systems capable of launching INF-banned missiles in Europe.

‘Nobody knows what those violations are. Is it the idea of developing a new cruise missile?’ Maloof wondered. ‘The treaty does not prohibit that. And the United States is developing new intermediate missiles and cruise missiles. But again they can develop them, they can research but they just can’t deploy.’

‘If president Trump acts on his threat and they go ahead and develop the new intermediate missiles the only place to put them, of course, is in the NATO countries in proximity to Russia which will be a very destabilizing factor,’ Afrasiabi explained.”

“In Hiroshima, there are permanent shadows caused by the intensity of the blast from the bomb that was dropped. Nuclear bombs emit EM(electromagnetic) radiation which was absorbed by the people or objects that were in front of the radiation. So if they were far enough away from the blast, they wouldn’t have been incinerated, but still would have cast a shadow.

Since thermal radiation is light, and since light travels from a central point, everything in its path is burned except when there is something blocking it, so it creates this shadow effect. The surfaces behind the matter (the objects you see the shadows of) received much less radiation bleaching so there is a visible difference.”

i12bent: On August 2, 1939 Albert Einstein wrote a letter to Franklin D. Roosevelt, urging him to begin the Manhattan project to develop a nuclear weapon… The letter was actually mostly written by physicist Leó Szilárd (and two other exiled Hungarian scientists), who together with Fermi had conducted experiments with nuclear fission. Szilárd pursuaded Einstein who was much more famous and well-connected to sign the letter…

国連総会での核兵器に関するイランの見解の表明 - Pars Today

“〔イラン外務省の〕アラーグチー〔国際法担当〕次官は、26日火曜、核兵器の全面的廃絶のための国際デーに合わせて開催された国連総会「核軍縮ハイレベル会合」で、「“アメリカは他国より強い核能力の保持が必要だ”とするアメリカの最近のアプローチは、新たな核兵器競争へと導くものだ」と強調しました。

ストックホルム国際平和研究所の年次報告によれば、アメリカは、5種類の新たな核兵器を獲得しようとしています。アメリカは2016年の初めの時点で、7000発の核弾頭を有していました。

このような中で、アメリカが核兵器の改良に今後30年でおよそ1兆ドルの費用を検討していることから、アメリカのライバル国も、新型の兵器の製造を追求しています。この流れの継続は、世界の消滅に向けた競争を意味します。ストックホルム国際平和研究所の年次報告では、シオニスト政権イスラエルも、およそ300発の核弾頭を有するとされています。イギリスの新聞、ガーディアンはこれについて次のように報じています。

「イスラエルは、プルトニウム500キロと、兵器の製造に十分な量の濃縮ウランを保有していると診られている」

イスラエルのディモナには核施設が存在し、この施設の職員はそれを、「小さな広島」と呼んでいます。

核兵器の使用禁止に対するイランの立場は、イスラム革命最高指導者のハーメネイー師の教令ではっきりと示されています。ハーメネイー師は、2012年8月30日、テヘランで開催された非同盟諸国の会合で、次のように語りました。

「イランは、論理、宗教、考え方の点から、核兵器の保有を大きな罪と見なしており、この種の兵器の拡散は無意味で破壊的、かつ危険なことだと考えている」

ハーメネイー師はまた、次のように語りました。

「イランは核兵器のない中東を提案しており、その実現に取り組んでいく」

現在もイランは、核兵器保有国がNPTを実行し、核兵器の完全な廃絶に関する取り決めを遵守することが不可欠だと訴えています”

“On Saturday, Lavrov urged Washington and Pyongyang to reduce tensions and described the trading of insults between their leaders as a ‘kindergarten fight between children.’

In addition to threats posed by Washington on the peninsular Asian country, stringent sanctions drafted by the US, including bans on textile imports and capping crude and petrol supply, were also passed at the UN Security Council without opposition earlier this month to further pressure the North to abandon its nuclear and missile programs.

However, it seems that the sanctions have had little effect, if any, on Pyongyang’s will to complete its nuclear plans. Kim has already said that his country seeks to reach ‘equilibrium’ of military force with the US.

On September 17, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley acknowledged that the Security Council had run out of options on containing Pyongyang’s nuclear program, warning that the White House may have to turn the matter over to the Pentagon.

Russia and China have already warned that no military solution is available for resolving the escalating crisis in the Korean Peninsula, saying the current standoff will only be resolved through dialogue.

North Korea is under mounting international pressure over its missile and military nuclear programs and has been subjected to an array of sanctions by the United Nations. However, Pyongyang says it needs to continue and develop the programs as a deterrent against hostility by the US and its regional allies, including South Korea and Japan.”
