“The [neoCons’] real goal is to force Moscow to conform to Washington’s ‘diktats’ or face the prospect of first-strike annihilation. That’s why Putin has expressed growing concern over the administration’s dropping out of the ABM Treaty and the development of a new regime of low yield, bunker-busting nuclear weapons. The ‘hawks’ who surround Bush have abandoned the deterrence policy of the past, and now believe that a nuclear war can be ‘won’ by the United States. THIS IS MADNESS AND IT NEEDS TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY.”
anticant is the blogname of a lifelong free speech and civil rights campaigner. A lot of his life since WW2 has been taken up with battling against cruel and over-bossy laws, censorship, censoriousness, and Nanny Knows Best types. Now elderly and in poor health, anticant hopes his memories and thoughts will be of interest to those engaged in today's struggles for freedom, democracy, and a more hopeful tomorrow.
