Social scientists and casual analysts have for long understood the importance of nuclear weapons as a direct correlate to their destructive power. Given that we live in a world where some of the lowest technology weapons take the most number of lives and are the most effective in waging war, and where “low intensity war” is the new buzz word, the exaggerated importance of nuclear weapons and the consequent paranoia of nuclear armed countries rife in literature seems utterly baseless.

I posit that possession of nuclear weapons imbues no special properties to a nation and no special protection against attack and doesn’t protect it from retribution if it is found to have erred. Superiority in conventional and not-so-conventional weapons, including Phosphorus and Depleted Uranium bombs, remains the primary criterion in military supremacy and ability to initiate action and respond to aggravation.

The enormous destructive power of nuclear weapons and the stigma associated with their usage has proven to be their undoing in the “real world” as opposed to the “realist world”. A slew of “realists” have argued that nuclear weapons guarantee peace between states. Aside from the “hot” cold-war era that led to the deaths of millions, the 1999 Kargil War between two nuclear tipped nations, India and Pakistan, provides an easy rebuttal to the argument.

Others have posited that possession of Nuclear weapons by a regime limits the options of other countries in dealing it. “Chaste” in his article presents the 1999 Kargil invasion by Pakistan as an example where Pakistan’s nuclear capability limited India’s options in the field. The scenario that he mentions is not particularly true for India did respond back with a fairly robust counter-attack, successfully repulsing Pakistan’s attack and only held back at the personal assurances of Clinton. Even if we discount this particular example, concerns remain as to whether states will genuinely have fewer options in dealing with a nuclear tipped rogue state. I believe that the answer is no and will try to corroborate my point my examining two possible scenarios– a rogue state conducts a terrorist attack against a much more powerful nation, and an event where it conducts a terrorist attack against say an equally or less powerful nation.

If a rogue state were to sponsor a terrorist attack against say the US, the US will respond militarily much in the same way as it has done in the past. If the rogue state were to choose a nuclear tipped response at that juncture, it would be annihilated fairly quickly given the overwhelming nuclear superiority of the US. One may reasonably argue from the above that unless a regime is self-destructive, and then there would be repercussions even in a non-nuclear scenario, it would not use any nuclear weapons. And if the regime doesn’t choose to use nuclear weapons then we can take nuclear weapons out of the equation and see the conflagration as a “conventional” war.

Let’s consider now if a “rogue state” were to conduct a terrorist attack against an equally or less powerful nation. This is akin to the example of Pakistan sponsoring terrorist attacks against India. The choices that India has are already limited because, though India has conventional superiority against Pakistan, a conflagration with Pakistan will inevitably cost a lot, cause fair amount of lives to be lost and create the threat of communal discord. If Pakistan were to use a nuclear weapon against India, as a response to a conventional attack by India, it would be stigmatized at the world stage and would swiftly result in a host of powers joining hands with India to at least affect a regime change. Here again, given the stigma of using nuclear weapons and given the repercussions of using one, the chances that Pakistani regime will ever use nuclear weapons against India are very limited. Even if India were to pro-actively launch strikes against “terrorist hideouts” in “Azad Kashmir”, there would be little that Pakistan could do to respond to it except reply back with conventional firepower or via sponsorship of more terrorism. The probability that nuclear weapons will enter the equation is miniscule.

Hence, one can safely assume that for most purposes, the possession of nuclear weapons by ‘rogue nations’ is immaterial to their safety or to ours. This framework is based on the fact that there is universal stigma against using nuclear weapons and hence will hold only until the stigma continues to be powerful and the will of the international community to be punish the errant strong.

    MY RECENT LETTER TO TORTURE VICTIMS
    August 16, 2006
    For several years I have had the honor and the accompanying pain to report fbi and cia crimes and misdemeanors against my person. The significance of my reports are not simply to assist myself in staying alive, but to provide an historical document which in time may serve others similarly imprisoned (though not always behind bars) by the high tech gadgetry (and low minded thugs) of these two hideous agencies.

    Therefore, the first purpose for this article is to express my gratitude for all who have seen and verified my reports and for all who see the global importance to humanity of the lessons I and others attempt to present. Thank you eternally.

    The other purpose herein is to offer whatever services I may to any other *person who is being tortured, imprisoned, or otherwise hounded by the world’s most misguided and pathological miscreants: the agents, operatives, thugs, assassins, executioners, handlers of the fbi and the cia and their sympathizers and allies globally.

    Tell me who you are, please; give me the dates, times and methods associated with your suffering at the hands of the fbi/cia and their global affiliates (including the mindless police in every jurisdiction), so that I can better understand how to attack (in an intellectual sense) these bestial humans in a way that will help educate the world regarding their purposes and their tactics. Provide the details and the names of your torturers.

    If you cannot communicate, then please relay the data to someone else for this study. While I may not be of direct aid to my fellow prisoners, I can add the material into the fold of my own updates and thereby give others the benefit of your travails; history needs you to vocalize your agony as I have for the benefit of future generations.
    Someday the thugs I describe will be out of power; they will be replaced with a diametrically opposite mentality and morality as represented by you and I.

    The people who will replace the hate mongers and torturers are those of us who seek humane treatment, with no exceptions, now and always, for the most glorious and noble of this earth’s occupants, the individual human being. The misanthropes whose defective and collective vision is jaded by their trade mark images of blood, chains, torture cells, and mass graves, etc., will run for cover and the new civilization will be born from your ideas and your reports, and from mine.

    The program to remove the warlords and the vicious exploiters of mankind from power is underway now; we are at the front edge of the largely invisible effort to make this new awakening, or phenomenon, a reality for all of our Brothers and Sisters in every corner of the world.
    Best Wishes.Love.
    See my message.

    The above statements do not represent a solicitation of any kind; further, the above appeal represents neither an offer nor an acceptance of the data and material referenced herein; all efforts [Personal contact info deleted] are intended as an educational pursuit for students of the Humanities.
    _____________________________________________________________________
    MY COMMENTS TO THE WORLD:
    Permit me to introduce you to the Enemy of Mankind ( as though you don’t know): the uNITED STATES of AMERICA. Those who aid the uSA in the torture, imprisonment and killing of my Brothers and Sisters must answer someday to all of Humanity, and to GOD.
    ______________________________
    Cult of torture,mayhem, Death
    Where is the USA taking the world?
    Down a path contrary to the laws of nature and Humanity, and at the same time contradistinctive to the dignity of man.

    Rest of the text: See the site for information on how the fbi/cia silence critics of USA wars on the world;see how the fbi/cia attempt to force into suicide the most viable and credible reporters of USA sponsored high crimes and misdemeanors globally; read the documents which expose the fbi and the cia as satanic and ritual torturers; discover or confirm the emergence of USA sponsored international goon squads who watch in real time and record (for the Senate Intelligence Subcommittee of Congress)as the Targets (of their inhumane assaults) take their own lives.

    Don’t take my word for it; investigate the phenomena yourselves; neither accept the denials and counter claims of the world’s most heinous thugs and miscreants (i.e., the fbi,cia), but delve into the matter with the dedication of a Renaissance explorer and the resolve of a bear on salmon trove.

    Excerpts from : http://www.sosbeevfbi.com:

    The tactics employed globally by the fbi/cia reflect the homicidal profile of the enforcers and perpetrators of the new, stagnant and completely controlled world. These tactics include, but are not limited to the following :
    mass murder (sometimes one at a time)
    torture (physical and psychological)
    terrorism
    blackmail (of a mortifying type)
    stalking and kidnapping and fraudulent stings by law enforcement
    burglary, robbery, theft, fraud, extortion
    false imprisonment, abuse of civil process and disabling calumny
    financial isolation and ruination
    human experimentation (of a monstrous type)
    programming for suicide (inter alia) of the Targeted individuals
    psychological operations and mind control
    psychoelectronic bombardment
    chemical, biological, and viral assaults on human beings
    nukings
    intrusive, continuous and disturbing surveillance (physical and electronic) twenty four hours a day, seven days a week
    -aided by tracking devices implanted in the person and properties of the Target
    -with invasions into home, office and car ; and with strategic tamperings therein designed to drive the Target insane
    The fbi/cia agents, operatives, thugs, assigns, handlers and supporters are your neighbors, friends, relatives, spouses, representatives, doctors, etc. Geral Sosbee

    MY OPINION:
    Until the United States’ terrorists and assassins are stopped in their
    tracks, the world cannot rest. Human beings are presently tortured,
    imprisoned and murdered by the fbi and the cia worldwide for no cause;
    this will not stop until the global population demands the surrender of the homicidal sociopaths who dominate U.S. political and economic
    policies.

    The concept that if the U.S. is let alone (or with its
    puppet allies) to be armed with nuclear weaponry in order to allow the
    rest of the world to live in peace is total lunacy. The United States
    used the nuclear bomb, threatens to use it again, and will in fact use
    it again to attack any nation which remotely threatens the U.S.
    stranglehold on the world. Indeed according to Karl W B Schwarz (and others),”evidence is still piling up that they have done wrong for the past three presidential administrations in using depleted uranium weapons on Iraq twice, Bosnia and Afghanistan.”

    Under the best of scenarios (as viewed from the perspective of non
    conforming-belligerent nations), however, the world cannot defeat the
    U.S. war machine. Any attempt to prepare to do so will be met with
    total destruction of the aggressor. Even today the U.S. has another
    weapon (other than conventional) which can theoretically wipe out,
    instantaneously, any cache or bank of unfriendly technologies which may pose a threat to the U.S. or its allies: the laser beam fixed in
    positon in outer space can accomplish this little task just fine.

    The real issue , I think, is how to stop all weaponry on earth from being used and at the same time to afford all human beings alive some hope for peace and stability everywhere and for all time. The formation of a one world , one people Humane global government must be studied and proposed. The tyrants of any given country cannot be entrusted with Human Rights and Individual Freedom issues ever again.

    This means that the people of the world, not their respective governments, must embark on mankind’s most ambitious odyssey: the journey toward permanent peace and harmony on earth and
    the uncompromising realization of Human Rights for all. This can be
    done; such a goal is not simply a dream. What appears as an
    unattainable dream is that the United States or any other government
    on earth will someday stop killing and torturing people and allow them
    to live in peace , mutual respect and love.

    SOSBEE’S PROCLAMATION ( someone must proclaim against uSA madness):
    Whereas the present government of the United States (feigning
    leadership) openly and without the slightest pretense of respect for
    human life and in complete disregard for universally accepted standards for basic human rights, engages under color of its national flag in murder, torture, imprisonment and terrorist practices against the peoples of the world, NOW THEREFORE SHOULD BE DECLARED AND HEREBY IS DECLARED A CRIMINAL AND ILLEGITIMATE REPRESENTATIVE OF THE PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY (THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA) and as such deserves not a respectable place among the family of nations and more significantly merits nil when the final account of Humanitarian efforts be tabulated by all that is holy and graceful in the universe.

    ____________________________________________________________________

    We the people of the world hereby prevent the fbi, the cia, the
    militia, or any other government agency (or person) of the United
    States (or any other country) from dictating the terms of our surrender unto their authority, custom, culture, power now and for all times; in furtherance of this recognition, the world’s population forthwith seeks to expose such dictatorial intent (and the techniques employed in support of same) by public investigation which serves on a continuing basis to protect and to defend the people of the world (now and in the future) from any form of inhumane governance. EVERY MAN/WOMAN.
    _____________________________________________________________________

    As people discover the immoral, cowardly and macabre character of the
    agents, operatives, handlers and associates of the fbi/cia (as manifest globally in the killing/torture techniques used by these sociopathic assassins to insure compliance to new world order dictates) we may not reasonably expect a merciful redress from foreign and domestic freedom fighters forced from desperation to employ against US equally aggressive and abhorrent stratagems.

    The FBI and CIA are truly horrible organizations as is the NSA.

    They do not operate within the US Constitution and never had, instead having been created by to violate the natural and inalienable rights of the American citizens.

    The latter two agencies are defacto Nazi organizations which have taken part in the destruction of the American landscape through the use of covert means in which to deceive the American people.

    Such a shame. A well-written, thought-provoking article, on a topic worth discussing, and only two comments in 11 months by a pair of barking mooncalves.

    What a suprise that a federal provocateur would show up to discredit two accurate posts. This miscreant is typical of the FBI and its mind raping protocols. This agency is an abject cancer on the American people and the human race.

    Now the FEDS have taken to lying about what they did to Michael Boren Williams as a result of his attempt to expose George HW Bush’s rampant criminal activity. They are circulating myriad LIES in regard to Michael just to cover up the HIDEOUS crimes that the FBI perpetrated against him and his wife and young child, including strip an cavity searching his 6 month pregnant wife and two year old daughter in a room full of FBI thugs, who broke down the door even though they did not have a search warrant. They even shot his two year old puppy in the head. The FBI is NOTHING but a modern day GESTAPO.. A PATHETIC excuse for law enforcement as well as humanity.

    And this act of cruelty on a young woman and her child bespeaks the FBI’s FILTH OF MIND.

    Read more about what they did to Michael here. As for the FBI’s label of others as being con men, take a look at the FBI’s criminal history including that of COINTELPRO and you will see that it has been the FBI who’s been RUNNING THE LONGEST CON IN US HISTORY!

    James Marino-good work, as usual.

    Politics is all about fbi/cia world inhumane domination.Hitler teaches the fbi/cia that the party must not be controlled by the masses , but should be their master.
