Ray McGovern on How We Got Here and How To End the Madness

On Sunday (January 29) Ray McGovern briefed the stalwarts at Ground Zero Center for Nonviolent Action in the Northwest of Washington state, who witness to life in the dark shadow of nuclear armed Trident submarines, eight of which are based at a naval base adjacent to Ground Zero. (The other six Tridents are deployed on the East Coast at Kings Bay, Georgia, where the “Kings Bay Plowshares 7” did a nonviolent action on April 4, 2018 — which resulted in their having to spend considerable time in prison.)

The adjacent Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor is homeport to the largest concentration of deployed nuclear warheads in the U.S. The nuclear warheads are not only deployed on Trident submarines, but are also stored in an underground nuclear weapons storage facility on the base.

One Trident submarine carries the destructive force of over 1,200 Hiroshima bombs (the Hiroshima bomb was 15 kilotons).

Since the crisis in Ukraine has brought the possible use of nuclear weapons into rather Blasé conversation, it seemed good to provide a brief review of how we got where we now are in Ukraine and what we might try to do to end the madness. Since Ray focused on ‘Russia-gate: Can You Handle the Truth’ the last time he was in Seattle and environs he devoted some time to updating on that and relating matters.

  1. WWII was called “The war to end all wars”. There were countless wars long after it ended. WWIII will be “The War to end all wars” if it happens, it will end all life on Earth as we know it.
