Nuclear Winter And Peace

Nuclear Winter And Peace

The theory postulates that the only way to prevent the use of nuclear weapons is by eliminating them. Living in a privileged place on the planet, which allows them to enjoy the highest standards of living and the world’s riches despite the their incredible waste of non-renewable resources, the American people should be the ones most interested in the information provided by the scientists. But how much time does the mass media devote to this task?

The Infinite Hypocrisy Of The West

The Infinite Hypocrisy Of The West

Suddenly, while I wrote this Reflection, I remembered that France is the third nuclear power in the planet, and that Sarkozy also had a briefcase with the keys required to launch one of the more than 300 bombs he had. Is there any moral or ethical rational in launching an attack against Iran, a country condemned for its alleged intention of manufacturing this kind of weapon? Where are the good sense and the logic of that policy?

238 Reasons To Be Worried (part Two)

238 Reasons To Be Worried (part Two)

From September 7th, the UN Security Council will analyze whether Iran has stopped its nuclear program. If according to the latest resolution, the US or Israel try to inspect any Iranian merchant ship in international waters, they will have to use force. This is where we find ourselves at this time, without a doubt, uncertain.

238 Reasons To Be Worried (part One)

We are living in an exceptional moment of human history. Starting from a period in which it was divided into Ancient, Medieval, Modern and Contemporary History. Not the history we were studying in school 75 years ago but the history brilliantly described by Karl Marx as Pre-history. That would be the result of the incredible growth of productive forces, with contributions by science and technology, and its impact on the conscience and material life of our species.

The Opinion Of An Expert

The Opinion Of An Expert

If I were to be asked who best knows about Israeli thinking, I would answer that without question it is Jeffrey Goldberg. He is an indefatigable journalist, capable of having dozens of meetings to ascertain how some Israeli leader or intellectual may think. He is not neutral, of course; he is pro-Israeli, no ands ifs or buts. When one of them does not agree with the policy of that country, that too is not done halfway. For my aim, it is important to know the thinking that guides the main political and military leaders of that State.

The Principal Chapter Of The Latest Book

The Principal Chapter Of The Latest Book

After publishing the two Reflections about Daniel Estulin’s book entitled “The True Story of the Bilderberg Club”, the author sent a message requesting an interview with me. Before our meeting, I wanted to read an important chapter from his new book that is about to be published and must be translated from English. Yesterday I got the book already translated in Cuba. Its contents are spectacular and it deserves to be analyzed in its essential aspects. By choosing some paragraphs from that material, I am offering an idea about the contents of the chapter which provides important facts that signify a challenge for the technicians.

Nuclear Winter

Nuclear Winter

I am embarrassed to not know about a subject, one that I have not even heard mentioned. Otherwise I should have understood much earlier that the risks of a nuclear war were much more serious than I imagined. I was assuming that the planet was able to withstand the explosion of hundreds of nuclear bombs upon realizing that both in the United States as well as in the USSR countless tests had been done over the years. I had not taken into account one quite simple reality: it is not the same to explode 500 nuclear bombs in 1,000 days as it is to have them explode in one single day.

I Am Ready To Continue The Discussion

I Am Ready To Continue The Discussion

I have presented the idea; not the idea that Obama is powerful or super-powerful. He prefers to play basketball or to make speeches. Besides, he has been awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace. Michael Moore urged him now to actually deserve it. Perhaps nobody would ever have imagined, and he the least of all, the idea that in this final phase of 2010, if he observes the instructions of the United Nations Security Council, which perhaps are firmly being urged by a South Korean named Ban Ki-moon, he will become responsible for the disappearance of the human race.

I Am Optimistic On Rational Grounds

I Am Optimistic On Rational Grounds

The future worries me, but I believe evermore that the solution is within our grasp, if we are successful in having the truth reach a sufficient number of people among the billions inhabiting the planet.

Am I Overdoing It?

Am I Overdoing It?

I was stunned to realize to what extent education could be distorted and prostituted in a country with more than 8 000 nuclear weapons and the most powerful means of war in the whole world.
