Sweden’s NATO Champions ‘Forget to Warn People of Nuclear Apocalypse’

Sputnik – 09.08.2015

A chorus of powerful voices in Sweden has recently urged the country to join NATO but they failed to mention that the bloc embraces a preemptive nuclear strike doctrine which could possibly lead to a nuclear apocalypse, warned a Swedish affiliate of International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War.

“NATO is a military alliance with nuclear weapons as a cornerstone,” Swedish Physicians against Nuclear Arms wrote in the Dagens Nyheter newspaper.

The alliance itself described these armaments as a core component of its deterrence and defense capabilities.

“As long as nuclear weapons exist, NATO will remain a nuclear alliance,” the bloc reiterated in 2012. Moreover, the organization’s hands are not tied by the no first use (NFU) policy, which it has repeatedly refused to adopt.

Five European nations, according to the Swedish medical group, host US nuclear forces. Should Sweden join the bloc, it could become the next country to welcome them and it will also have to accept NATO’s preemptive nuclear strike doctrine.

Research has shown that even a limited nuclear war could threaten survival of millions.

A team at the Department of Meteorology of the Stockholm University studied climate implications of a fictional nuclear war between India and Pakistan, who possess less than 1 percent of world’s nukes. The colder temperatures caused by a nuclear explosion in their simulations would lead to crop failures and food shortages across the northern hemisphere.

Swedish Physicians against Nuclear Arms urged the government to commit to an initiative aimed at eliminating nuclear weapons worldwide. The organization believes that this goal is attainable and several major steps in this direction have already been taken.

The figures seem to support this view. For instance, the number of missiles with nuclear warheads has been reduced by 75 percent since 1986, the group said.

  1. The US shouldn’t support global warming propaganda then, knowing that nuclear weapons are going to be used soon.

    • Global warming propaganda, and the nuclear arms escalation and provocation policy of NATO, Barack Obama, and neo-conservatives in the U.S. Congress all have the same source, the British Empire, and the same motive: desperation to stay in power and avoid just punishment for their genocidal financial and other fraud, terrorism, assassinations, coups and destabilizations. The British Empire seeks to destroy the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) because the BRICS has escaped the Empire’s control and is progressing, whereas the United States has become that Empire’s attack dog. The global warming propaganda is a complement, in the department of natural sciences, of the Evil Empire’s financial snake oil: universal banking (no Glass-Steagall bank separation), too-big-to-fail, the Eurozone, bailouts and bail-ins, austerity and usury. Believing the IPCC makes about as much sense as believing that the Eurozone is solvent and has a bright future, if only the Greeks would cooperate, tighten their belts and pay their debts!
