Why does the whole narrative always exclude the Rest of the World?

What makes the USA think it can call on a Nuclear war whenever it chooses?

What makes observers think it all depends on the USA?

The world is far more insane than even I had thought if that were true.

If that is true it means China will just sit idly waiting, perhaps chewing its fingernails, wondering if it is going to survive a nuclear winter after America's nuclear war.

It means India feels the same way.

The whole of Asia.

The Koreas - comprising somewhat significantly in this context: North Korea.

Etc.

You mean to tell me the whole 'Rest of the World' is playing mah jong while that insane stupid bully the United Shambles of America decides whether or not to destroy the whole world?

That is the postulate behind all the news we get today.

All the surmises.

All the analysis.

I don't believe it.

I think the Rest of the World will be telling the USA, finally, after all these egotistical heady years of abandon, just what the story is and where it fits in it. Sit down and shut up.

I think that has to be. Like I said, all is most incredibly insane if not so. Irreparably insane.

I'd like to see some 'investigative reporting' about that. It's somewhat central to the future of the human race maybe.

Never have I been so disgusted with my (UK)Government. Thus far we have blown up a bridge, tried to take out 2 vital energy pipelines, sent Boris Johnson to sue for war and squash peace. Over-estimated US war capability, and all in all put ourselves on the wrong side of history. If you want a bargain, I can sell you a bushel of hubris-filled liars, tax cheats and STUPID, STUPID elitist idiots. Otherwise we British people will have to pay to have them towed away, regards and good luck with all enterprises Dr Jo East Anglia

Based on one of your last interviews you will try to create an anti-nuclear weapons movement. Are you aware of -- and would you support by mentioning it -- the Veterans for Peace campaign;

VFP Golden Rule Project is a National Project of Veterans For Peace

http://www.vfpgoldenruleproject.org/about-the-project/

We aim to advance Veterans For Peace opposition to nuclear weapons and war, and to do so in a dramatic fashion. We have recovered and restored the original peace boat, the Golden Rule, that set sail in 1958 to stop nuclear testing in the atmosphere, and which inspired many peace makers and peace ships that followed. The restored Golden Rule is voyaging once more, to show that a nuclear peace is possible, and that bravery and tenacity can overcome militarism.

Thank you for your courage and endurance Scott Ritter. If only we could have more people with the same caliber to raise their voices...

The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists is proof that being educated does not necessarily mean being well-informed or possessing critical-thinking.

Expand full comment

You make a good observation of how the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists are complicit in the reign of nuclear terror.

They do nothing to explain how we arrived here and have no more talent than winding the spring on the clock as instructed by their propaganda masters holding the finger on the red button of Armageddon and ready in their bluff.

Gives science a horrible reputation these Nobel Prize winners.

You are preaching to the choir. I recently read some things about America's curent President who mocked you in a psychotic rant about "ol'S cottie Boy" not deserving a limo in the Iraq Senate hearings: "Ben Rhodes, Obama's former deputy national security adviser, who was known for his mind-meld with the president, wrote in his memoir that 'in the Situation Room, Biden could be something of an unguided missile.' ... Biden's own academic career was unimpressive—he repeated the third grade, earned all C ' s and D ' s in his first three semesters at the University of Delaware except for As in P.E., a B in "Great English Writers" and an F in ROTC, and graduated 76th in his Syracuse Law School class of 85 students.... One Democrat who spoke to Obama recalled the former president warning, 'Don't underestimate Joe's ability to fuck things up.'" (Politico, "'The President Was Not Encouraging': What Obama Really Thought About Biden", ALEX THOMPSON, 08/14/2020) America replaced a stupid traitor with a stupid flag-waver in The White House. Captain Ahab Biden chasing Moby Dick Putin with his Zelensky harpoon. When Ahab met Moby, Moby sank his ship: The USS Naarrenschiff (Ship of Fools). I try to tell myself not to find it sickening because that just makes me ill. Go ol' Scittie Boy! (And may God protect ALL troops!)

In my personal case, nothing makes me sadder than lying scientists. And dangerous. The imbecile of Atomic Energy was no longer enough. As journalists, when they stop scrutinizing to the powers that be and guarantee Democracy so that they can transmit to the world what the powers that be want like today! There is no democracy without free journalism! And how do I know they've been corrupted? Because it was also with this strategy that the massive Russophobic disinformation campaign in Europe began to impute to Russia the will to change the World Order that emerged from WWII when it invaded Ukraine? As if we were still living in the WO that emerged from WWII and without explaining that Russia was forced to enter Ukraine to defend itself above all from the threat of NATO as the US would do with an enemy force on its border ?!

As if there had never been dissolution of the USSR, WO unipolar and neocons in Washington that do not admit any nation as an equal! Or the Wolfwitz ​​doctrine with the siege of missiles in the Black Sea aimed at Moscow! According to journalism on the payroll of western warmongers nothing really happened in the last 30 years that radically changed the geostrategic balance of the world and the World Order! As I have already said with the neocons expressly saying that they do not allow any nation in the world to challenge the unipolar power of the US. Which is what we are already seeing!

And scientists, like journalists, were for many decades two of the greatest guarantors of a world that ceased to exist" Unfortunately, about 40 years ago! It is enough to remember how, despite the judgment of the Rosenberg couple, it was the scientists who built the atomic bomb in the United States who passed the formula on to Moscow. Because they soon realized that there was no other solution for a balanced and secure world. because security never came from imbalance. As in Europe, doctors were also the greatest defenders of the National Public Health System for decades. Almost always against politicians unscrupulous or with pilgrim ideas. Until the advent of neoliberalism in the 80s with which many politicians were also corrupted to loosen the regulation to start opening private health clinics! business like any other. Regardless of health being one of the biggest businesses in the world in countries that live well with the mercantile sm of health. Contrary to the Charter of the United Nations.

The WO Constitution that was born in the post war! the problem is that populations don't double just by starting to open private health clinics in countries with good free public health systems. And the only solution for the business is to destroy these Public Services for the private ones to gain clients as they call even the terminally ill. And how suddenly the wild consumption society of the 90s was no longer the same that saw the birth of Public Systems and the new doctors are also men susceptible to a society that exchanged all moral values ​​for the material values ​​of the wild consumer society where anyone money makes the law... I think there is no need to say more. For some reason 10% of the global population already own the same wealth as the remaining 99%.

And the richest 1% hold 50% of the world's money. Moving towards feudalism. because inequality in addition to injustice never created prosperous civilizations. Some of the biggest fortunes are African. We live today in a society that favors individualism and, above all, selfishness, which could not be more different from post-war societies, which are very aware of all the sacrifices asked of the population during the war. What in Europe gave rise to the Welfare State, a value that neoliberalism has been trying to destroy for 40 years by turning all the basic areas of our life into business. From education to health and pension funds in the Casino of financial markets. Which only removes security from the population and limits competitiveness to the economy because it demands higher wages. Not by chance frozen for 40 years in the US.

In the case of nuclear at least we are sure as Scott says that Russia will never make the 1st strike. Never did! Unlike the US, which attacked Japan without nuclear power and without any need. Only for Moscow to see! And Russia has already lived through very complicated times believing that it was being attacked with nuclear weapons and very calmly did not respond to the attack. Fortunately it confirmed that it was just a US exercise. Now imagine with missiles in Ukraine 5 minutes from Moscow? Fortunately it was confirmed and the worst was avoided. It was just a US exercise. And today there are very advanced ways to understand if any of the parties is thinking about using nuclear weapons. Unfortunately, as you can see, we can no longer count on scientists on the side of humanity!

In your corrected Ukraine history, you may want to mention that Ukraine's history as a "sovereign nation" does not go back to WW2. Ukraine means something along the lines of "hinterlands" & historically, not only was most of it part of Russia, the Rus people actually started along the Dneiper & early on, Kiev was its capitol.

Ukraine the "sovereign country" didn't exist until the 1990s, after the breakup of the USSR. It is a creation of UK/US, along the same lines of the ME countries, in which they split up various tribes & forced together 2-3 historic enemies in order to control them by keeping them fighting each other, while stealing their resources.

Eg, Shia Muslims & Sunni Muslims + Kurds in Iraq.

Or Novorissiya Russians + Galician Azov Nazis + whatever other groups are in Ukraine.

I would also advise the Doomsday people that Russia doesn't need to wait until the US launches a nuke to defend itself. If it got wind an attack was imminent, it could take out our satellites. No gps or internet & we'd be blind & deaf.

Do you think Mr. Scott that US leadership will get off their dream to conquer Russia?

Aleksandr Nevsky crushed joined german/swedish army in 1242 on Chudskoe lake.

Napoleon tried to beat Russia in 18th century(1812 to be exact) with 600000 troops. Lost big time and as the result got 1 million Russian troops in Paris.

Gitler made another attempt with 4 millions and 330 thousands. As finale Russians in Berlin and Nurnberg.

Who wants to be next out 50 countries ?

Baltic lap dogs?

Poland the jackal?

Or so called "great" Britain that has nothing left of its greatness?

Russia does not even need the nuclear weapons to destroy them to dust.

When collective west will start learning history?

The Bulletin writers show in its posts that the NATO side is theirs. They have swerved away from the old focus of nuclear war to "climate change" and "disruptive technologies." Among the lights of the Bulletin leadership is Edmund G. Brown, Jr. , its Executive Chair and former governor of the State of California. Brown moved quickly from governor post to the Bulletin. While still governor in 2018 he was featured at the WEF. https://www.ca.gov/archive/gov39/2018/09/25/wef-summit/index.html
