Nuclear weapons made it on to the scene in 1945. Their debut was at Hiroshima on 6 August 1945 with a follow up at Nagasaki three days later. See Atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Having proved their effectiveness they became a very big political issue. The Russians wanted them and got the technology the old fashioned way. They stole it. There were all too many traitors on the Manhattan Project, including the head man, Robert Oppenheimer the research project that led to the Trinity test at White Sands Missile Range. The initial effects have obvious military uses but the after effects are a much bigger issue. The fall out can spread worldwide. It is fair to say that there was not much of a problem with the Japanese attacks or it was covered up.
Attempts have been made to limit their availability. One such is America’s very own Symington Amendment which 'banned U.S. economic, military assistance, and export credits to countries that deliver or receive, acquire or transfer nuclear enrichment technology when they do not comply with IAEA regulations and inspections. This provision, as amended, is now contained in Section 101 of the Arms Export Control Act (AECA). However the Symington Amendment's overview of the whole subject from the Wiki at Legal Issues tells us that presidents just ignore it and the Jews get away with it again. It will be why they do not admit to having them.
A law suit is going forward regarding this one; see Suit against US-Israel Aid Advances - http://newobserveronline.com/suit-usisrael-aid-advances/
Nuclear proliferation worries some people but Aum Shinrikyo tried it - Aum Shinrikyo was competent, well funded but just not good enough. The implication? It takes government sized outfits; home brew operations haven't got what it takes.

They saved lives, lots of them. Two men I knew had one way tickets to Japan. They are not complaining.

Nuclear Submarines And Trident
Does England need another generation of nukes? Yes! Why? Lewis Page explains all.
England Needs Trident Says American Defence Secretary
The Guardian tells it like it - sometimes. This is not one.
Ash Carter says it is important the UK has military might that backs up ‘its moral standing and its historical standing’ in world
Britain must keep its Trident nuclear deterrent to maintain its “outsized” role in the world, the US defence secretary, Ash Carter, has said. Carter said the nuclear-armed submarines were an “important part of the deterrent structure of NATO”.
MPs are expected to vote on government plans to renew the weapons system, an issue on which Labour is split.
Nukes are nasty, dangerous things which War Mongering rogues like Blair, Brown, Bush, Cameron, Obama et al have bottled out of using. They murder people in little countries instead.
Trident Explained By The Grauniad
The Guardian doesn't like nukes. It keen on telling us that we shouldn't have them. El Graun does not mention that misbegotten War Mongers like Blair, Brown, Bush, Cameron, Merkel, Obama, Netanyahu, Strauss-Kahn would have long since started World War III if other countries hadn't had them. Of course invading little countries without the nuclear option is different; it's fun, a chance to abuse power, murder foreigners that Jews don't like etc.
America And Nuclear Bombs
Daniel Ellsberg went public with the Pentagon Papers. He still regards nukes as nasty, dangerous things which is fair enough. Putting the genie back in the bottle is not easy. Here he explains why.
The aftermath was never going to be pretty. For some the end was mercifully quick.
Vicious thugs with bombs are about as bad as it gets. Paranoid Zionist thugs with nukes are out there.
Ugly, isn't it?

Far less secure than it should be.
Jews Smuggled 800 Nuclear Triggers Into Israel
California-based MILCO International Inc. shipped 15 orders totalling 800 krytons [ sic - try Krytron, they are high speed, high power switches ] to the Israeli Ministry of Defence between 1979 and 1983. Israeli movie producer Arnon Milchan's Heli Trading Company brokered the transactions. A kryton is a gas-filled tube used as a high speed switch. Export from the US requires a US State Department munitions license because krytons can be used as triggers for nuclear weapons. The US rejected several requests for Kryton export licenses to Israel. MILCO obtained the krytons from E.G.&G Inc.
A US Attorney tried to get MILCO President Richard Kelly Smyth to implicate Milchan in the illegal kryton export during plea bargaining. The negotiation failed, and in May, 1984, Smyth was indicted on 30 counts of smuggling and making false statements......... In November, Smyth was sentenced to 40 years in prison and a $20,000 fine, though he was free within four years.....
A 2011 biography called "Confidential: The Life of Secret Agent Turned Hollywood Tycoon Arnon Milchan" claims Milchan was recruited into Israel's LAKAM economic espionage unit in his 20's and became a key operative for Benjamin Blumberg (head of LAKAM), and Rafi Eitan [ Israeli Chief of Staff and cabinet minister, involved in the Sabra and Shatila Massacres ] (who ran Jonathan Pollard and infiltrated NUMEC)..........
MILCO did 80 percent of its business with Milchan, including transfers of other US technologies useful to Israel's clandestine nuclear weapons programs. (Gyroscopes, neutron generators, high-speed oscilloscopes, computerized flight control systems.)
Jews pretend they do not have Nukes. They are lying of course. They claim that Iran is making their own bombs; another lie of course. They are using it as an excuse to start World War III.

Nuclear Proliferation, Libya And Iran
There are two ways to describe the case against German engineer and businessman Gotthard Lerch coming before the Mannheim District Court. One involves the complex language of Germany's War Weapons Control Act and Foreign Trade Act -- the language of the indictment against Lerch. The other description is much easier to understand. Lerch stands accused of aiding and abetting the end of the world through nuclear Armageddon.
Lerch, it is alleged, lent his support to the efforts of a number of dictators around the world to construct a nuclear weapon. He is charged with supplying plans, manuals and even entire systems. The case going before the Mannheim court on Friday deals with Lerch's alleged involvement with Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi. According to a confidential expert report, Gadhafi would have been able to produce up to 30 kilograms of weapons-grade uranium a month with the equipment he ordered from his German contact. It is the first trial worldwide against a suspected member of the nuclear mafia and it is shining an unwelcome spotlight on Germany -- the country is once again at the centre of a case focusing on the international arms trade.
This was back in 2006. Did he get convicted? Did he move the technology to potential users? Pass but then the whole thing went quiet - for me at all events.

The Untold Story of Israel's Bomb [ 30 April 2006 ]
The Americans knew pretty much from the start that the Zionists were making nukes at Dimona but they pretended that they didn't for political reasons. This is from a Jew and a man writing in the Washington Post, a Zionist propaganda operation.

American Air Force Accidentally Dropped Two Nukes On Home Soil [ 27 April 2012 ]
Their awesome power had been harnessed by the Americans ten years earlier to help bring about an end to the Second World War. But a US Air Force crew nearly wrought similar destruction on its own people after accidentally dropping a nuclear bomb on south Carolina at the height of the Cold War.
But thanks to remarkable good fortune no one was killed in the incident on March 11, 1958. That afternoon sisters Helen and Frances Gregg, aged six and nine, and their nine-year-old cousin Ella Davies were in the playhouse their father had built for them in the woods behind their house in Mars Bluff, South Carolina. At around four o’clock they decided to move from the playhouse to the side yard 200 yards away. It was a decision that kept them from becoming the first Americans killed by a nuclear weapon released on U.S. territory. Minutes later the woods behind the playhouse were destroyed by a nuclear bomb.
The high-explosive trigger in the bomb blew up on contact with the ground, leaving a crater 50 feet across and 35 feet deep. The girls were all injured but it could have been much worse - all that remained of the playhouse were a few twisted shards of the corrugated metal roof. American Heritage: 'Aircraft 53-1876A Has Lost A Device' How the U.S. Air Force came to drop an A-bomb on South Carolina
This will confirm a lot of men's suspicions about trigger happy Yanks. It is not really new news but it is relevant.
Marshall Islands Sue All Nine Nuclear Powers [ 21 May 2014 ]
Some five decades ago, world leaders came together on an urgent mission to avert "the devastation that would be visited upon all mankind" in the event of a nuclear war. The five then-existing nuclear weapon states - the United States, Soviet Union (now Russia), United Kingdom, France and China - signed the international nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT)........
Five decades later, the nuclear threat has only increased. Four more states - Israel, India, Pakistan and North Korea - now have nuclear weapons. The world is more dangerous because the signatories of the NPT have failed to keep their promises and have undermined the Rule Of Law.
Until now, no one has held them accountable. Last month, the Republic of the Marshall Islands courageously took the nine nuclear weapons-wielding Goliaths to the International Court of Justice to enforce compliance with the NPT and customary international law.
Desmond Tutu writes. Little Des is an honest man who objects to Apartheid in Israel as well as South Africa, which is why he is very persona non grata among Jews. Suing governments will not work though.
Hiroshima Film Cover-up Exposed

Thank God For The Atom Bomb [ 26 May 2016 ]
TODAY’S Hiroshima doesn’t give the TV journalists a lot to work with. It’s a raucous, bustling, mid-sized Japanese city with only few reminders of its destruction by atomic bomb in 1945. There’s the skeletal dome of the Hiroshima Prefectural Industrial Promotion Hall (which was right under the blast), and discreet plaques on various other buildings saying that such-and-such a middle school, with 600 students, used to be on this site, and that’s all.
So it’s no wonder, with President Barack Obama’s scheduled visit to Hiroshima this week (but no apology), that practically every journalist writing about the visit resorts to quoting from Paul Fussell’s famous article in the New Republic in August, 1981: “Thank God for the Atomic Bomb”.
In 1945 Fussell had been a 20-year-old infantry second lieutenant getting ready to invade Japan. He had already been through almost a year of combat in France and Germany, and he was one of the few original soldiers left in the 45th Infantry Division. The rest had been killed or wounded.
Fussell had reached the point – all soldiers who see real combat reach in the end – where he KNEW that he too would be killed if his division was committed to combat again. But having survived the war in Europe, he was going to be sent to Pacific, and the 45th Division would be in the first wave of landings on the main Japanese island of Honshu in March 1946.
Like his few surviving comrades from the European war, he absolutely knew that he would die in Japan. So when they heard about the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and the Japanese surrender, they were crying with relief even as they cheered.
When I interviewed Paul Fussell in the mid-1980s for a documentary, even in recollection the emotions he had felt when he learned that he had been reprieved, that he would live to grow up, were so strong that he was crying again. The atomic bomb did save his life, and perhaps the lives of a million others who would have died if there had been a full-scale invasion of the Japanese homeland. For him, that was enough.
It will have to be enough for us, too. In any case, we do not need to engage in the tricky accountancy of balancing the quarter-million horribly real deaths at Hiroshima and Nagasakai against the hypothetical (but quite realistic) estimates of a million military and civilian deaths if the Allies had really had to invade Japan.
There’s a different way of looking at the Hiroshima bomb. It’s often mentioned by the hibakusha (bomb survivors) who struggle to give meaning to the horrors they experienced. If not for those bombs on living cities, they argue, the world would not have been afraid enough of these new weapons to avoid a nuclear war all down the long years of the Cold War.
I suspect Barack Obama sees the logic of that, and that he is going to Hiroshima not because it is a symbol of the past, but rather to use it as a warning for the future. At the beginning of his presidency, in April 2009, he said in a speech in Prague: “As the only nuclear power to have used a nuclear weapon, the United States has a responsibility to act.”
It has not acted decisively yet, and it is unlikely to do so before Obama’s presidency ends next January. All he can claim is a deal that probably prevents Iran from becoming the next nuclear power, and a controversial trillion-dollar programme to modernise US nuclear weapons while reducing the actual numbers. But if the remaining weapons have more accuracy and higher yields, have you actually achieved anything?
Obama’s heart is certainly in the right place. He has held four nuclear security summits during his presidency, mainly aimed at improving the custody measures meant to keep the weapons out of the wrong hands, and getting the nuclear powers to move away from launch-on-warning postures that keep everybody at hair-trigger alert.
In Hiroshima, he will probably ask the US Senate once more to ratify the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (ten years and counting). He will talk up a proposed new treaty banning the production of fissile material. He may even call for a world without nuclear weapons, although that is a concept that does not have much support in Washington.
But it’s hard to get the world’s attention when the threat of nuclear war seems low, and almost impossible to get real concessions out of the great powers when it seems high. In the end, Obama is just using Hiroshima to remind everybody that we have a lot of unfinished business to conclude in the nuclear domain.
Gwynne Dyer, ex Royal Navy lectured at Sandhurst so he understands the issues. He is right. The comments range from silly to hostile. Having had two friends with one tickets to Japan and death among a million others I take their point and Gwynne's.
House Of Commons Backs Trident Renewal 472 To 117 [ 19 July 2016 ]
That is a pretty convincing majority, one that should shut Rent A Mob cum CND up for a decent interval. Even murderous hooligans like Blair haven't been fool enough to use them.
Nuclear Power Is Grossly Overpriced [ 7 September 2016 ]
French President Francois Hollande’s government is concerned that discussions on the sidelines of the Group of 20 talks in China will sound the death knell for the Hinkley Point nuclear power project in the U.K., according to people involved in the talks.
The prospects of Hinkley Point going ahead have diminished significantly since May replaced David Cameron as prime minister in July. Hours after EDF gave the project a green light, May’s government said it needed time to reconsider. Hollande and his advisers have repeatedly sought reassurances that the project would proceed and failed to get firm commitments, French officials and executives said. They asked not to be named because the discussions are private and have yet to be concluded...........
Cameron’s government agreed in 2013 to pay EDF 92.50 pounds ($121) a megawatt-hour for electricity from Hinkley, more than double the prevailing market price [ circa Ł50 = 5p per kilowatt-hour ]. The National Audit Office estimated in July that consumer-funded top-ups over the project’s 35-year lifetime would total almost 30 billion pounds, five times original estimates. Offshore wind developers such as Dong Energy A/S and biomass producer Drax Group Plc say the government should look again at alternatives to nuclear, which are falling rapidly in price.
Nuclear power uses less coal; it burns cleaner but should we pay over the odds? NO! Ł18 billion + maybe 30% cost overruns is serious money. Waste disposal shouldn't be a problem but it is the excuse the Greenies use; they are loudmouthed ignoramuses using an excuse, any excuse to make problems. They are just Rent A Mob. The French are looking to screw the English taxpayer & stave off bankruptcy. See Private Eye on the point.
