Remembering Nuclear Victims: Commemorating 70th Anniversary of the US Largest Nuclear Blast

Castle Bravo test

March 1st marks seventy years since the US used its biggest ever nuclear weapon – on Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands. The bomb was 15 megatons, a thousand times more powerful than the bomb dropped on Hiroshima.  On this day we acutely remember the victims of the Castle Bravo nuclear blast and all other victims of the nuclear era, which has brought untold pain, death and damage, affecting both people and the planet in profoundly destructive and damaging ways.

Between 1946 and 1958 the US detonated 67 nuclear weapons in the Marshall Islands. The blasts vaporized whole islands, carved craters into the shallow lagoons and exiled hundreds of people from their homes. The Castle Bravo blast was the largest of all, sending  Particulate and gaseous fallout around the entire planet.

Biden Needs Muzzle To Stop Reckless, Inflammatory Personal Attacks

Job 1 for any president is not to spew personal insults at world leaders to inflame delicate issues of war and peace.

At a campaign stop Wednesday, Biden called Russian President Vladimir Putin a “crazy SOB” (Son of a Bitch). Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov was much more circumspect in pushing back, saying, “Such boorish statements from the mouth of a US leader are hardly capable of hurting the head of another country in any way, much less President Putin. But it is a great shame for the country (US) itself,”

Biden knows better. He made that scurrilous remark to ramp up support for his reelection with voters who have largely abandoned him on his lost proxy war against Russia destroying Ukraine, and his enabling Israel’s genocidal ethnic cleansing of Gaza.

Are All the Foreign Policy ‘Experts’ Secretly Putin Puppets?

On today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report:

What do the foreign policy “experts” do when their policies aren’t working? They demand more of the same, of course. So it is that two failed years of Western sanctions are met with demands to do more of what is not working. Also today, Rep. Massie warns us about the upcoming stopgap budget deal. Finally… let’s check in on how that war on the Houthis is going…
