Will The U.S. Nuke Iran?

Professor of Physics Highlights The Dangers

In an August 2005 issue of The American Conservative, former CIA officer Philip 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.


One month 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 2001 and  Doctrine for Joint Nuclear Operations dated March 15, 2005.


In the new  video 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.


With 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.


We urge 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.
