Nuclear, Chemical and Biological Weapons but not only Threaten World Peace


DEAR FELLOWS CHAIRESTHAI,
OUR STANCE FOR ASSAD'S REGIME IS  KNOWN AND POSTED SOME YEARS AGO.
ASSAD FAMILY SHOULD ORGANIZE A DEPART FROM ITS DICTATORSHIP,BY PERMITTING,FACILITATING THE  ESTABLISHMENT OF A DEMOCRATIC STATE AND STOP RULING THE COUNTRY,ANY MORE.
EVEN THOUGH A MASSACRE IS HAPPENING IN SYRIA,ALL INVOLVED PARTIES HAVE TO BE BLAMED FOR THIS ,BECAUSE A CIVIL WAR FINDS NO JUSTICE AT ANY SIDE.

KILLING YOUR BROTHERS WAS AND STILL IS THE GREATEST  CRIME , AGAINST  OUR HUMAN NATURE AND  HOLY FREEDOM. 

WE AS EUROPEANS FOR THE SAFETY, NOT ONLY OF THE INHABITANTS,TO THE LANDS WHERE NUCLEAR,CHEMICAL AND BIOLOGICAL WEAPONS ARE KEPT, BUT ALSO TO OUR CITIZENS SECURITY,HAVE TO WORK ON ELIMINATING ANY KIND OF SUCH INSTRUMENTS OF DESTRUCTION  WHEREVER THEY ARE  AND ESPECIALLY AT OUR NEIGHBOURHOOD IN  MEDITERRANEAN AND MIDDLE EAST TERRITORIES.

VARIOUS INDUSTRIAL DISASTERS

IT MUST BE ADMITTED THAT THIS IS NOT ENOUGH,BUT IT IS THE HIGHEST PRIORITY FOR PEACE AND PROSPERITY,BECAUSE SEVERE RESTRICTIONS UP TO ELIMINATION, MUST BE TARGETED AND IMPLEMENTED  TO THESE INDUSTRIES WHICH USE THE SAME MATERIALS,MENTIONED AT THE TITLE, FOR PEACEFUL REASONS TOO

The Sixth Review Conference agreed to establish a second Inter-Sessional Process. The topics agreed upon were:
i. Ways and means to enhance national implementation, including enforcement of national legislation, strengthening of national institutions and coordination among national law enforcement institutions.
ii. Regional and sub regional cooperation on BWC implementation.
iii. National, regional and international measures to improve biosafety and biosecurity, including laboratory safety and security of pathogens and toxins.
iv. Oversight, education, awareness raising, and adoption and/or development of codes of conduct with the aim to prevent misuse in the context of advances in bio science and bio technology research with the potential of use for purposes prohibited by the Convention.
v. With a view to enhancing international cooperation, assistance and exchange in biological sciences and technology for peaceful purposes, promoting capacity building in the fields of disease surveillance, detection, diagnosis, and containment of infectious diseases: (1) for States Parties in need of assistance, identifying requirements and requests for capacity enhancement, and (2) from States Parties in a position to do so, and international organizations, opportunities for providing assistance related to these fields.
vi. Provision of assistance and coordination with relevant organizations upon request by any State Party in the case of alleged use of biological or toxin weapons, including improving national capabilities for disease surveillance, detection and diagnosis and public health systems.
Topics i and ii were dealt with in 2007, iii and iv in 2008, v in 2009, and vi in 2010. For the second Inter-Sessional Process, the Meetings of Experts for each year was reduced to one week

Israel’s  Weapons Threaten World Peace

Syria threatens no one. It hasn’t used chemical weapons against insurgents or its own civilians. Claims otherwise are fabricated.
In contrast, Israel is nuclear armed and dangerous. It maintains large chemical and biological weapons arsenals. More on that below.
In 1986, Dimona nuclear technician/heroic whistleblower Mordechai Vananu revealed important documents, photos, and other scientific evidence.
They proved Israel began producing atomic weapons since at least the 1960s. Years later, thermonuclear warheads were manufactured.
It’s believed Israel’s arsenal includes hundreds it won’t admit to publicly. It’s missile capability can deliver them long range. So can its nuclear submarines.
Vananu revealed Israel’s nuclear program. He provided credible evidence. Doing so cost him dearly.
In 1986, Mossad agents lured him to Rome. They beat, drugged and kidnapped him. He was secretly tried. He was convicted on espionage and treason charges.
He got 18 years in prison. He spent much of it in brutalizing solitary confinement. He suffered cruel and barbaric treatment.
After release, he was imprisoned again. It was for speaking to foreign journalists. Daniel Ellsberg calls him “the preeminent hero of the nuclear era.”
Vananu said “I am neither a traitor nor a spy. I only wanted the world to know what was happening.” People everywhere have a right to know.
No matter how secure he is in Russia or elsewhere, he’s threatened for the rest of his life. “There’s no saving me,” he says. It’s for good reason.Instead they’re ruthlessly vilified, hounded and punished when apprehended. Snowden’s free in Russia. He’s unable to go home. He fears for his safety.
Perhaps Mossad will try to abduct him. It wouldn’t surprise if it attempts replicating how it entrapped Vanunu. Rogue agencies operate this way.
CIA, NSA, Mossad and Israel’s secretive Unit 8200 perhaps are the worst. They operate extrajudicially. They make their own rules. They’ve done it throughout their history. Returning Snowden to America very much is US policy.
Israel won’t discuss its weapons of mass destruction. It never signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
In 1993, it signed the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC). It refused to ratify it. It did so for spurious reasons. It wrongfully claims it’s surrounded by hostile neighbors. Israel’s only enemies are ones it invents.
It never signed the 1972 Biological Weapons Convention (BWC). Its policy is CBW ambiguity.
In 1993, the US Congress Office of Technology Assessment WMD proliferation assessment said Israel has undeclared offensive chemical warfare capabilities.
It uses banned weapons in all its conflicts. They include chemical, biological, and radiological ones. Hideous new weapons are tested. Injuries never seen before are reported.
Bodies with dead tissue showed no apparent wounds. Corpses were found shrunken. Civilians had heavy lower limb damage. Amputations were required.
Internal wounds had no trace of shrapnel. Corpses were blackened. They weren’t burned. Some badly wounded victims didn’t bleed. Explosives containing toxins and radiological materials are used.
They burn and destroy bodies. They do so internally. They leave permanent deformations. Unknown toxins believed to be nerve gas is used. So is white phosphorous. It burns flesh to the bone.
Depleted and enriched uranium weapons spread radioactive contamination. Close-range explosives cause severe injuries. Victims lose legs. Abdomens are sliced open. Some people are too far gone to be saved.
The Israeli Institute for Biological Research (IIBR) is top secret. Hundreds of scientists and technicians develop chemical and biological weapons. They’re used in combat.


Humankind’s Most Dangerous Moment: Fukushima Fuel Pool at Unit 4. “This is an Issue of Human Survival.”

The world community must now take charge at Fukushima

We are now within two months of what may be humankind’s most dangerous moment since the Cuban Missile Crisis.
There is no excuse for not acting. All the resources our species can muster must be focussed on the fuel pool at Fukushima Unit 4.
Fukushima’s owner, Tokyo Electric (Tepco), says that within as few as 60 days it may begin trying to remove more than 1300 spent fuel rods from a badly damaged pool perched 100 feet in the air. The pool rests on a badly damaged building that is tilting, sinking and could easily come down in the next earthquake, if not on its own.
Some 400 tons of fuel in that pool could spew out more than 15,000 times as much radiation as was released at Hiroshima.
The one thing certain about this crisis is that Tepco does not have the scientific, engineering or financial resources to handle it. Nor does the Japanese government. The situation demands a coordinated worldwide effort of the best scientists and engineers our species can muster.
Why is this so serious?
We already know that thousands of tons of heavily contaminated water are pouring through the Fukushima site, carrying a devil’s brew of long-lived poisonous isotopes into the Pacific. Tuna irradiated with fallout traceable to Fukushima have already been caught off the coast of California. We can expect far worse.
Tepco continues to pour more water onto the proximate site of three melted reactor cores it must somehow keep cool.Steam plumes indicate fission may still be going on somewhere underground. But nobody knows exactly where those cores actually are.
Much of that irradiated water now sits in roughly a thousand huge but fragile tanks that have been quickly assembled and strewn around the site. Many are already leaking. All could shatter in the next earthquake, releasing thousands of tons of permanent poisons into the Pacific.
The water flowing through the site is also undermining the remnant structures at Fukushima, including the one supporting the fuel pool at Unit Four.
More than 6,000 fuel assemblies now sit in a common pool just 50 meters from Unit Four. Some contain plutonium. The pool has no containment over it. It’s vulnerable to loss of coolant, the collapse of a nearby building, another earthquake, another tsunami and more.
Overall, more than 11,000 fuel assemblies are scattered around the Fukushima site. According to long-time expert and former Department of Energy official Robert Alvarez, there is more than 85 times as much lethal cesium on site as was released at Chernobyl.
Radioactive hot spots continue to be found around Japan. There are indications of heightened rates of thyroid damage among local children.
The immediate bottom line is that those fuel rods must somehow come safely out of the Unit Four fuel pool as soon as possible.
Just prior to the 3/11/11 earthquake and tsunami that shattered the Fukushima site, the core of Unit Four was removed for routine maintenance and refueling. Like some two dozen reactors in the US and too many more around the world, the General Electric-designed pool into which that core now sits is 100 feet in the air.
Spent fuel must somehow be kept under water. It’s clad in zirconium alloy which will spontaneously ignite when exposed to air. Long used in flash bulbs for cameras, zirconium burns with an extremely bright hot flame.
 Each uncovered rod emits enough radiation to kill someone standing nearby in a matter of minutes. A conflagration could force all personnel to flee the site and render electronic machinery unworkable.
According to Arnie Gundersen, a nuclear engineer with forty years in an industry for which he once manufactured fuel rods, the ones in the Unit 4 core are bent, damaged and embrittled to the point of crumbling. Cameras have shown troubling quantities of debris in the fuel pool, which itself is damaged.
The engineering and scientific barriers to emptying the Unit Four fuel pool are unique and daunting, says Gundersen. But it must be done to 100% perfection.
Should the attempt fail, the rods could be exposed to air and catch fire, releasing horrific quantities of radiation into the atmosphere. The pool could come crashing to the ground, dumping the rods together into a pile that could fission and possibly explode. The resulting radioactive cloud would threaten the health and safety of all us.
Chernobyl’s first 1986 fallout reached California within ten days. Fukushima’s in 2011 arrived in less than a week. A new fuel fire at Unit 4 would pour out a continuous stream of lethal radioactive poisons for centuries.
 Former Ambassador Mitsuhei Murata says full-scale releases from Fukushima “would destroy the world environment and our civilization. This is not rocket science, nor does it connect to the pugilistic debate over nuclear power plants. This is an issue of human survival.”
Neither Tokyo Electric nor the government of Japan can go this alone. There is no excuse for deploying anything less than a coordinated team of the planet’s best scientists and engineers.
For now, we are petitioning the United Nations and President Obama to mobilize the global scientific and engineering community to take charge at Fukushima and the job of moving these fuel rods to safety.
If you have a better idea, please follow it. But do something and do it now.
The clock is ticking. The hand of global nuclear disaster is painfully close to midnight.
