Destructive Campaigns

by Susan Watkins | July 2007

One thing missing from "A Nuclear Surge" (by Frida Berrigan, April 2007) is the money source.

One thing missing from "A Nuclear Surge" (by Frida Berrigan, April 2007) is the money source. If we knew who the major investors in uranium mining and nuclear arms production were, we would know why the Bush administration is moving forward on a new generation of nuclear weapons.

Also, regarding "Road Maps to Peace—or Destruction?" (by Charles Kimball, April 2007), I applaud Jimmy Carter's stand on Israel's treatment of the Palestinians. For far too long the United States has turned a blind eye to the brutal expulsion of the Palestinians from their homes. The campaign to cover up this destruction of a people is shocking.
