Letter about nuclear weapons

To the Editor,

A couple of decades ago, the Reagan administration spurned nuclear arms control and disarmament treaties and championed an array of new nuclear weapons and missiles. His VP, Bush, talked glibly of fighting and winning nuclear war!

Alarmed, physicians in both the US and the former Soviet Union took it upon themselves to lead their people and governments away from the nuclear arms race. Dr. Bernard Lown of the US and Dr. Evgueni Chazov of the USSR founded the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW) in 1979, which now has affiliates in 58 countries.

For their significant contribution toward stopping the nuclear arms race and achieving arms reduction treaties, IPPNW received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1985. Tireless education of people by Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR), the US affiliate, contributed to nearly a million people joining in a rally in New York City in June, 1982, against the nuclear arms race.

The Bush administration's Nuclear Policy Review of early 2002 declares Bush's plans to be ready to use nuclear weapons against 7 countries, in several specific situations and 3 general scenarios, one of which is so vague it amounts to whenever Bush chooses.

This is why Executive Director of IPPNW, Michael Christ , declared on Nov. 20 that we again have "to turn things around" and "are committing ourselves to generating the largest mass movement of physician activism since the height of the Cold War." At the 2005 Nuclear Proliferation Treaty Review, "we will demand that all governments commit to launching negotiations on a time-bound step-by-step framework for eliminating nuclear weapons by 2020."
