Day of mobilization against the threat of nuclear war

35



Today, January 29, all over the world and in our country in particular, the Day of mobilization against the threat of nuclear war is celebrated. It should be noted that in modern realities, these events are of particular relevance.

If we talk about the date itself, then it was not chosen by chance. It was on this day in 1985 that the so-called Delhi Declaration was signed, aimed at eliminating the threat of nuclear war by ending the arms race by nuclear powers and gradually reducing nuclear arsenals, up to complete disarmament.

Despite the fact that almost 40 years have passed since the signing of the document, no progress has been made towards universal nuclear disarmament. Moreover, atomic weapon continues to upgrade, becoming even more powerful and deadly.

Returning to the event itself, it is worth emphasizing that in this case we are not talking about the annual mobilization of the armed forces to counter the nuclear threat. The word "mobilization" here is more symbolic and implies diplomatic steps.

On this day, many politicians will make a speech designed to preserve the fragile world in which we live today. Prayers, services and chants will be held in churches, mosques, synagogues. Charitable and public organizations will arrange events designed to remind people of the terrible threat posed by nuclear weapons, and relevant seminars and conferences will be held in scientific circles.

It is worth recalling that in 1989 South Africa became the first country in the world to completely and voluntarily renounce nuclear weapons. At the same time, the so-called "nuclear club" today officially includes 8 countries, not counting Israel, which probably also has nuclear warheads in service.

Importantly, many states today would like to join the aforementioned club. And this is against the background of cynical statements by their heads about the need for nuclear disarmament, as well as maintaining peace throughout the world.

The largest nuclear arsenals are currently owned by Russia and the United States. At the same time, both countries emphasize that the possession of weapons capable of literally destroying humanity is necessary not for war, but, on the contrary, for its containment.

Regarding the possibility of a full-scale nuclear confrontation, which today, in the context of the aggravation of the conflict between Russia and the West, only the lazy one does not talk about, such a scenario is extremely unlikely. After all, the use of modern strategic nuclear weapons will put an end to the existence of the entire human civilization. It is unlikely that the members of the "nuclear club" are unaware of this.

However, since the advent of atomic weapons, the world has already stood one step away from nuclear war several times. At the same time, the worst thing is that not a cold strategic calculation could lead to it, but outright stupidity, a failure in the operation of electronics and a human factor.

We can only sincerely hope that such incidents will never happen again. We must value the world in which we live. After all, we have no other and most likely will not.

      I'll throw in the topic of nuclear war. The second player is included. The Chinese ambassador, in an interview with CNN, did not exclude a military conflict with the United States from their policy on Taiwan! Good news for Biden when he wakes up.

    Bayonet to the ground, you say? Oh well. Enough, retreated further nowhere. I do not urge to "gasp", but you should know the measure and still know the history. Including the modern one. Tomorrow is generally "International Day Without the Internet", so many are ready to spend it as it is not clear who calls?

          This is their kind of revenge and their type of revenge is terrible. This is because we are also convening a security council on the illegal stay of the Americans in Syria. We will be measured by pisyunami.

            ... an anecdote on the topic ... the editors sent a correspondent to a distant village to write an article about how men in the outback celebrate February 23
            he arrives .. and there are no men in the village .. only children and ladies ... he approaches the tomboy and asks ...
            -Malets, where are all the men of the village?
            -that went to the forest to measure pisyunami
            - maybe I should go measure with them - scratching my knees
            -yes, it’s not worth it, said the kid, scratching his heel
            so here .... there will be a spanking and that's all ... it's time to tie up with these yoyons and other scum ... I don’t understand ... why the tea is not scolded for their antics ... because they didn’t give a damn about all sorts of yoyoung and mfb and shopping striped banks

    Unfortunately, today, the presence of nuclear weapons is a guarantee of the existence of the state, that they will not come to it and will not inoculate it with "democracy".

          Not three times, but more, because the USSR before Khrushchev was not at all the same as under him and after. Before Khrushch, small private business existed quite normally in the USSR.

          I agree, the fact is that the country was destroyed despite the existence of nuclear weapons. And, even the nuclear weapons themselves were soundly halved. If there were all sorts of alcoholics in power, they would have been left without it altogether, or it would have been totally controlled by the State Department.

            Are you aware of the affairs of the State Department? And where is the guarantee that some drunk or traitor will not get power from us again? What specifically has changed?

            I would prefer to dwell on the question of why, in our country, an alcoholic or a traitor, in principle, can really lead the country like a real autocratic Tsar (heh ... heh .... despite democratic legislation !!!), and they have - No ?

            I believe that this is precisely the main danger of nuclear war. The author is absolutely right that, first of all, it is we who need to mobilize our brains so that such a horror does not happen again.

              I didn't quite understand your question.
              Under the drunk and his friend Kozyrev, the American State Department stuck its snouts into every mine, into every nook and cranny. He held a candle over every strategic missile carrier that was being stripped to pieces. With all these traitors, warships and aircraft were dismantled for scrap, which could now adequately serve and reinforce the new that is being built with such difficulty.
              The alcoholic just did not seek to fight. He sold and betrayed everything, according to the old Gorbachev tradition.
              What exactly has changed?
              The rhetoric of foreign policy. Although, in the current conditions, dictating your own conditions to the whole world is such a thing.

              ... first of all, it is we who need to mobilize our brains so that such a horror does not happen again.

              Yes, the author is definitely right. Although common phrases, but the essence of this does not change.
              That's just what kind of "mental strain" is required, SPECIFICALLY from you and me?
              Do we influence the decision to use nuclear weapons?
              Do you have a suitcase?
              I do not have. Yes, and I no longer have anything to do with the Ministry of Defense)) Sorry, I can’t influence)

    Author, we simply need this weapon. Otherwise, they would have been eaten with giblets. Like Libya, Iraq, Yugoslavia. They don’t dare to touch the little North Korea (and it sits in the liver of the freelancers) only thanks to nuclear weapons. First of all, we need to value the world in which we live, our country. Not abstract humanity. Some of its representatives really do not deserve to exist on our planet.
