We want a "peace economy" that creates jobs, invests in our communities, restores and improves public services, saves the environment, and builds the infrastucture. We urge you to sign the petition at www.jobs-not-wars.org that calls for an end to the austerity and militarism that this Congress and Administration seem intent on.
Reasons you might not have thought of why we need to eliminate the possibility of nuclear exchanges. And this doesn't even mention the considerable cost of maintaining (and updating) our existing stockpile. This cost doesn't show up in the Pentagon budget because it is the responsibility of the Department of Energy.
