PostSubject: Obama McCain and the Bomb   Thu Sep 11, 2008 2:22 pm

I just came across this great little physicians web site - amongst other things it tells us what each US Presidential candidate has said about nuclear arms.

http://blogs.physicstoday.org/politics08/question_4/


Obama:
Quote :
America must not rush to produce a new generation of nuclear warheads. And we should take advantage of recent technological advances to build bipartisan consensus behind ratification of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty

McCain:
Quote :
No details on McCain’s nuclear weapons policy exist on his web site. However, his voting record shows McCain voted against ratifying the comprehensive test ban treaty in October 1999. According to the November/December 2007 issue of Foreign Affairs magazine “"The nuclear nonproliferation regime is broken for one clear reason: the mistaken assumption behind the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) that nuclear technology can spread without nuclear weapons eventually following."

The site looks at candidates views on a whole range of science matters, including evolution and science teaching.

This is the Obama problem in a nut shell, what exactly does that actually mean! He is trying his utmost not to take a position, or commit to a position. It is waffle without conclusion.

McCains position lacks any idealism but is probably depressingly correct.

I find both very depressing. IMO we will have a nuclear war at some time, I hope that it is a small war as we as a species will not survive a major war.

The issue is how do we stop future conflicts generally.

Ibis says elsewhere that people aren't aggressive as made out to be, and won''t use these weapons.

The geni is out of the bottle. We have to live with the threat of nuclear war, and I can't see any way of doing away with that threat.
