Global famine if India, Pakistan unleash nukes: study


More than a billion people around the world would face starvation if India and Pakistan unleash nuclear weapons, even if that war is regionally limited, a study released on Tuesday warned.

That’s because the deadly and polluting weapons would cause major worldwide climate disruption that would dramatically drive down food production in China, the United States and other countries.

“The grim prospect of nuclear famine requires a fundamental change in our thinking about nuclear weapons,” said study author Dr Ira Helfand of the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War.

“The new evidence that even the relatively small nuclear arsenals of countries such as India and Pakistan could cause long lasting, global damage to the Earth’s ecosystems and threaten hundreds of millions of already malnourished people demands that action be taken,” Dr Helfand said in a statement.

“The needless and preventable deaths of one billion people over a decade would be a disaster unprecedented in human history.”—AFP

    How interesting! and not to mention illuminating! The world faces a direct threat from two countries: Pakistan and India, due to their conflict. Shall we not mention the continuing relentless population annihilation in Iraq, Palestine, Afghanistan and on and on, where the depleted uranium stock piles purposefully rain down from the unrelenting showers of gifts, lovingly signed by the children and soldiers of the “civilized” nations. Let’s not forget that they do wonders to the ecosystems and to the local cultivations and the DNA changing effects on human beings. Noooooo! they are civilized, and doing service to the “humanity”!!! … Please! let us stop the hypocrisy by these pseudo do-gooders who spread nothing but mass hysteria about the everchanging boogey man. Now, back to the agenda: Let us come down harsh on this rogue nation known as Pakistan – the useless trouble makers. Ah! but not India, the land of Gandhi, the nation that has no interest in building the ICBM’s and their carry load of gifts to the world, ah and wait don’t forget the good-will message that they are designed to carry ‘all the way up to Beijing’.

    For God’s sake, oh people wake up! before we drown ourselves in this filth of double-speak that we spew all around us to serve the agenda of the Master of Deception – Only To destroy the children of Adam!

    p.s. Any chance we can squeeze Pakistani nation into further subjugation or better yet plan the end of their useless existence? This will serve UN Agenda so well! Population Control? hmm!, … let us use our boogey man Al-SQaeda – the headless snake! or any of its siblings, TTP, LJ, BLA etc. etc. etc.- the rogue robots that we can now guide into creating a small fireworks of say a mini nuker, preferably somewhere close to New Delhi?

    For those who still don’t see it, study the following:


    The REAL HUMANITY is doomed until it lifts the veil pulled over its mind.
