As Trump Threats Stir Global Arms Race, New Report Details the Nuclear War Profiteers

Andrea Germanos, staff writer

A new report offers a comprehensive look at who's profiting from the new nuclear arms race.

"If you have been wondering who benefits from Donald Trump's threats of nuclear war, this report has that answer," said Beatrice Fihn, executive director of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), winner of the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize.

Divest Now, In Any Institution That Is Banking On The Bomb.

Support Life, Not Death!

This is wrong! All wrong! Clinton was the one who wanted nuclear confrontation. The Deep State is out to get Trump!

Nuclear weapons development is largely promoted through the efforts of public and private scientific/engineering research institutions. Take Sandia National Labs, for example:

There are campaigns to get scientists and engineers to refuse to promote ‘usable’ nuclear weapons, nuclear proliferation, etc. It is disturbing that most US scientists and engineers have not joined these campaigns. Even, self-proclaimed ‘Science Advocates’ such as the organizers of the March 4 Science, continue to refuse to take a stand against nuclear proliferation.

Divesting and boycotting,That is People Power!

If the people are going to be nuked again, I don’t see anything building to stop it from happening. If they have them they will be used. Have any rights been restored since Trump gained office? You know who pulls the puppet strings…he just gave a purely evil warmongering speech in the US against Iran. Trump cares nothing about the American common people, just more boldly rubbed in your face lies from a straight faced clown puppet following orders. For peoples rights, a dyed in the wool disgrace against humanity.

All war should be required to be non profit. No plundering of another countries natural resources either! This way if war is necessary, then so be it, but no one will be allowed to profit off of war. Perhaps that will slow down the dogs of war a bit!

Trying to start an argument, again, I see? is that all you got?

It would be nice to somehow find a way to put the genie back in the bottle. What if we were able to dismantle all nuclear weapons and wipe all the knowledge of how to build them from the minds of all the people on Earth who know anything about that. I suppose we’d have to work on a similar strategy to eliminate gunpowder after that. It would be a way to get down to how Albert Einstein predicted world war four would be fought, “With sticks and stones,” without actually going through world war three.

“If you have been wondering who benefits from Donald Trump’s threats of nuclear war, this report has that answer,” said Beatrice Fihn, executive director of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), winner of the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize.

ICAN, along with Netherlands-based peace group Pax, released the report, entitled “Don’t Bank on the Bomb,” on Wednesday. It shows that 329 financial institutions in 24 countries invested $525 billion into the top 20 companies involved in the production, maintenance, and modernization of nuclear weapons from January 2014 through October 2017.

Imagine if this money had been invested in truly taking care of nature – animal-life – and humans …

We all support this warmongering without end. Otherwise opposition would be building in the only space that really matters, public space. Those responsible fear a public uprising. It would have to be a massive initial display of peaceful people to start off the public revolution to gain further support from the nation who witness the beat down of the original protesters. Alas people have given up, too busy to note their demise and react.

Clinton undid the Cold War agreement by bringing NATO to the bordering countries of Russia and George W. Bush cancelled the Ballistic Arms Treaty. Hillary wanted to put in a no fly zone in Syria in confrontation with Russia. Agree that blaming everything on Trump is garbage as well as Russiagate is garbage.
