NH #329: Bob Alvarez Decodes N. Korea & Nukes + ICAN Wins Nobel Peace Prize! YAY!

This Week’s Featured Interview:

  • Straight talk on North Korea from Bob Alvarez, a senior scholar at the Institute for Policy Studies, who served as a senior policy advisor to the Secretary and Deputy Assistant Secretary for National Security and the Environment during the Clinton administration, 1993-1999.  One of the few Americans who actually visited a North Korean nuclear facility, he understands the politics, pressures and which way lies madness. 

Numnutz of the Week (for Outstanding Nuclear Boneheadedness):

That danged human error launched a torpedo into a UK nuclear dockyard!  All the nuclear “safeguards” in the world won’t add up to much against the actions of a Darwin-adjacent nominee.  

The Missing Link:

  • Boeing’s Santa Susana Field Laboratory “clean-up” – comments needed to California Department of Toxic Substances ControlSSFL.DTSC.commentinput.com
  • Coalition Against Nukes calling for ACTION on the proposed House and Senate bills:  Restrict First Use of Nuclear Weapons Act of 2017.  Calls needed to your Senators and Congressional Representatives needed to support taking first-strike capability out of the hands of the President without a Congressional declaration of war.
