Obama Promised A ‘World Without Nuclear Weapons,’ But May Now Spend $3 TRILLION On Weapons Upgrades (Video)


24.10.2014

http://democracynow.org – We are on the road in the historic city of Vienna, Austria, not far from the Czech Republic where President Obama gave a major address in 2009 that called for a nuclear-free world. His disarmament efforts were cited when he won the Nobel Peace Prize, but since then advocates say little progress has been made. A recent New York Times investigation found the United States is on pace to spend as much as $1 trillion over the next three decades to modernize its nuclear arsenal and facilities. This week, more than 150 countries at the United Nations signed a joint statement calling on nuclear powers to attend the third major conference on the humanitarian impact of nuclear weapons scheduled this December in Vienna. The United States has yet to attend one of the meetings. We are joined by Elena Sokova, executive director of the Vienna Center for Disarmament and Non-Proliferation.

  1. This man has lost all credibility around the world, and at home to all of us who think. The fools who drink at the well of US Propaganda still like him, they are told nothing of his lies.

    But, he was planned and planted years ago, the first Manchurian Candidate of the USA. When I learned he was made editor of the Harvard Review without ever submitting a single paper for publication, that is when it all fell together for me. His life was set up, planned and designed from that time on. Making this virtual nobody president was easy because the other candidates were so awful.

    Every promise made has been broken because he says whatever he is told, he is like a human robot, nothing more.

  2. WW3 has already been fought and won without the firing of a single shot.

    It is called BRICS, and it has undermined and destroyed the US standing as world reserve currency. BRICS is the economy of the 21st century, and many western nations will suffer as a result. The basket of currencies makes far more sense than allowing a rogue nation to continue as the world economic leader……and it is no longer. Like the founders of the EU, too many are not realizing the possible problems with such a system.

    I suggest people look at Japan. Japan is dead, we all know that, They lived by exporting. Thanks to corporate greed and interests, Fukushima is destroying them forever. Perhaps the volcano will bury Fukushima, but even if it does, the radioactivity will remain, and other countries will continue to refuse their products.
    Japan has been dealing with deflation for the past 25+ years. Since joining BRICS, their currency is traded with other countries at face value at time of transaction. As a result, after 2+ years, Japan now suffers hyper inflation, there is no world reserve currency to use, their currency is vulnerable to the world markets. It is a very brutal system, and the weak ones will suffer.

    I have left some other posts describing what I mean today, it is self evident, the US is finished. Spending another 3 trillion to upgrade weapons is absurd and grandiose, not to mention nearly psychotic.

    The wars of the 21st century have also changed, the wars are now economic, not guns…….we have moved too far for that. It is only the US with their endless threats that continue to try to scare everyone and really only annoy and disgust.

    The reason I say this is because WW3 was fought between 2010 and 2014, and the west has lost. In that period of time the US dollar went from inclusion in 100% of all international transactions to 33%. The US was respected as a world leader, made all the wrong moves, and today is considered a rogue nation.
    Nations no longer accepting the dollar include but are not limited to the following (I am drawing from memory): Brazil, India, China, Russia, South Africa, many emerging African nations, many emerging Central and South American nations, Australia, New Zealand, Switzerland, Japan, many eastern nations I cannot readily name along with others I cannot recall. These people make up the majority of the world economy.

    Financials are the ammo of the future, not bullets.

    When the first few states break with the EU and join BRICS for their own seeming benefits, the dollar will collapse.

    It will be interesting to see how much the dollar is worth as itself………..it won’t be fun for the American people. Our nation and treasury has been gutted, our future has been leveraged, just like our money.

    The wars of the 21st century are financial. No bullets required.
