Will The U.S. Nuke Iran?
Professor of Physics Highlights The Dangers
an August 2005 issue of The American Conservative,
former CIA officer
Girarldi raised the alarm
over in-process Pentagon contingency plans drafted in
preparation for another terrorist attack in the United
States. The response includes a plan for a massive air
assault on Iran with the use of both conventional and
tactical nuclear weapons regardless of whether Iran is any
way involved in such an attack against the U.S.
after the publication of Giraldli's warnings, physicists
from around the world, including numerous Nobel laureates
and prominent figures, signed a
petition expressing their
dismay at seeing the architects of Bush administration
policy embrace the use of nuclear weapons as a tool in
warfare like any other. The new US policy to use
nuclear weapons against non-nuclear countries has been
officially formulated in two US government documents
Nuclear Posture Review delivered to Congress in December
Doctrine for Joint Nuclear Operations dated March 15,
In the new
produced with the support of volunteers of the Campaign
Against Sanctions and Military Intervention in Iran (CASMII),
the UC San Diego Physicist and signatory to the petition Dr
Jeorge Hirsch outlines the devastating consequences that are
certain to follow if the U.S. pursues a policy of deploying
nuclear weapons. He urges the US public to ask the
Congress to confront this possibility.
Iran's civilian nuclear program having been singled out for
referral to the United Nations Security Council, destructive
sanctions and/or military action against Iran seem imminent.
In this context, any U.S. policy that paves the way for the
use of nuclear weapons is particular cause for alarm.
Iranian, U.S. and international media to take note of this
alarming development in official U.S. policy and to meet
their responsibilities in revealing its dire implications.
