A Choice Between Peace and Peril by Chris Hedges

Bibi Netanyahu’s assumption of power in Israel sets the stage for a huge campaign by the Israeli government, and its well-oiled lobby groups in Washington, to push us into a war with Iran.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama, along with Netanyahu, all talk as if Iran is on the brink of dropping the big one on the Jewish state.

  1. Iran will undoubtedly be able to manufacture nuclear weapons, as it was recently announced that they are now testing their first nuclear power plant.

    Once this plant is up and running and as with all nuclear power plants, (although this information isn’t publicized), they will begin to produce plutonium.

    Note in the following definition that plutonium is produced by neutron bombardment of radium, which is also why the USA has so many nuclear weapons, as there are no other uses for this “byproduct” with one of its isotopes that have a half life of 73 million years!

    Indeed, are we dancers, or are we human? My how the puppets dance to the macabre ballet of madness that we call our civilization. How does one find the escape when there is none? It is a mad, mad world, full of the probability of disaster. My, my what an inheritance for the coming generations, and those that may or may not follow .

    plutonium.

    n. (Symbol Pu)

    A naturally radioactive, silvery, metallic transuranic element, occurring in uranium ores and produced artificially by neutron bombardment of uranium. Its
    longest-lived isotope is Pu 244 with a half-life of 76 million years. It is a radiological poison, specifically absorbed by bone marrow, and is used, especially the highly fissionable isotope Pu 239, as a reactor fuel and in nuclear weapons. Atomic number 94; melting point 640°C; boiling point 3,235°C; specific gravity 19.84; valence 3, 4, 5, 6.
