[ Editors Note: We see more and more signs that the West has lead the way on endangering all the rest of the world through its own nuclear proliferation, while pretending to be against it. What that meant of course is that “We don’t want anyone else doing what we are doing as that would be a threat.
This is usually referred to as circular reasoning. But something is coming full circle now, the public rising up and not wanting to play their assigned roles as the easily spooked victims of external threats when the really dangerous ones are right here at home.
Allen has coined a term peace cry… “Peace is Right…not Might Makes Right”. I think it could catch on… Jim W. Dean ]

“The classic example of that is Israel who is isolating itself from the world community even with its stockpiles of atomic bombs or nuclear bombs,” he added. “It’s isolating itself. It no longer carries a big stick. The big stick right now is peace.”
Roland noted that the world’s mindset regarding matters of national security and defense has changed dramatically and that “having a nuclear weapon is no longer a trump card.”
“The people need to say enough is enough, we don’t want war,” he said. “We want equality.”
The columnist made the remarks after a report by International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War has warned about the existence of nuclear weapons in the world.
There are currently more than 17,000 nuclear warheads which have been ignored since the Cold War ended in 1991, according to the report.
Nine countries are believed to possess nuclear weapons, with Russia and the United States holding the vast majority of them. Israel is the Middle East’s sole possessor of nuclear weapons.
The study also said that a possible nuclear war between the United States and Russia could lead to the extinction of the human race.
“The whole thought of what would happen if the United States or the Soviet Union traded nuclear bombs is ridiculous, it’s never going to happen,” Roland said.
