How many years have these people spent without medication? The amount of unrelated connections in this article is astounding.
“nuclear weapons, white supremacy and deeply embedded racism.”
How on earth are nuclear weapons related to white supremacy and racism? They were literally developed in the middle of WW2 to stop Nazi Germany! WTF are you talking about?
“by disarming the world’s deadliest nuclear weapon, the Trident submarine. We repent of the sin of white supremacy that oppresses and takes the lives of people of color here in the United States and throughout the world.”
How on earth are these two events related? One is a domestic police calamity and one is an operation by the US Navy. Please provide JUST ONE example of nuclear submarines committing racial prejudice in violence. WTF are you talking about?
“We resist militarism that has employed deadly violence to enforce global domination.” Why on earth are you attacking a US Ballistic Missile Naval Base? This class of submarines were first developed as a response to the USSR in the Cold War, whom as I recall actually dominated a much larger portion of the globe than strictly speaking the USA from 1947-1991.
- Furthermore the SOLE PURPOSE of these submarines are for NUCLEAR DETTERENCE, as opposed attack submarines or cruise missile submarines. This means the ONLY scenario in which these subs are used is if another nation with WMDs is present in an operation. Last time I checked the USA is not enforcing global domination on China, India, North Korea, Russia or Pakistan, as that would most likely result in immediate nuclear war.
“hey walked onto King’s Bay Naval Station just hours after Saheed Vassell was shot and killed in a barrage of bullets by New York City police officers, just hours after hundreds of demonstrators filled the streets of Sacramento for another day, shouting “Stephon Clark, Stephon Clark, Stephon Clark” and demanding accountability after the young father of two was killed by police officers on March 18.”
How on earth are is this related to nuclear deterrence, nuclear submarines or the US Navy?
“Each submarine, my mom and her friends assert, carries the capacity to cause devastation equivalent to 600 of the nuclear attacks on Hiroshima, Japan.”
Well I’m sorry little Johnny, but your mom has no idea what she is talking about. A trident II ICBM has a weapon yield of 475kT, and the “Little Boy” nuclear bomb dropped on Hiroshima has a weapon yield of 15 kT. Now the Trident II is far more destructive, but in terms of “capacity” its only 31.6 times as much.
“Nuclear weapons kill every day through our mining, production, testing, storage and dumping, primarily on indigenous native land.”
Testing every day? Even though it has been illegal in the USA to test nuclear weapons since 1996 through a multilateral international treaty among all major nuclear superpowers? If this was really happening, do you honestly think China and Russia would be so calm about the USA violating not only the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty, but also the Model Additional Protocol of 1997?
- Additionally it is illegal to dump nuclear waste on native land since the 1982 Nuclear Waste Policy Act.
- What recent events are you talking about? Yes there were damages caused from 1940s-1970s, but since that time there is an extraordinary amount of NPT regulation that if violated would give other superpowers the motivation to increase nuclear stockpiles. WTF are you talking about “every day”?
