Pope condemns possession of nuclear weapons

Well, I’m glad that at least our sun continues to use nuclear fusion, since it provides the power for all life on earth. And that nuclear fusion was not invented by anyone on earth.

Don’t preserve it - help to make it great and good.

I like that idea.

That’s grand. I agree. But you can’t honestly say that the foreign interference of the USA is part of that. The US needs to stop interfering in the Middle East and around the world, except maybe when it comes to the likes of Kim Yong Un and the like. The US interference in the Middle East has brought about an even worse situation there. Most of it is not even about the good of the people but about oil.

Did the Mid East have a role to play in anything that has taken place? Has this “interference” brought any good with it? The life style in the MidEast hasn’t been doing very well for most people for an awfully long time - can there be some reason that would explain more that the US made it worse? The MidEast found they had a lot of oil, worth a lot of money, when President F.D. Roosevelt offered to buy some - maybe that caused everything. Maybe the MidEast should just get out of the oil business and go back to doing whatever they were doing?

Better question, is the US acting in a Christian manner toward the Middle East?

Hate them or like them, the notion of disarming is silly. Even if there were an accident, they would not go away completely. The ONLY way to get rid of them is to render them obsolete by perfecting a defense against them.

I thought we were on the way of doing that until the hypersonic missiles came out. It is hard to imagine creating an effective defense against something like that anytime soon.

The US has finished testing its own hypersonic missiles – two programs actually. They are using very old technology. The X-15 manned rocket plane exceeded Mach 6 in the 1960s.

Leaked information to scare Congress into funding the new missile gap.
