Update: The U.K. House of Commons on Monday voted to renew the Trident nuclear weapons system, 472-117. As the BBC explains, "the MPs' vote approves the manufacture of four replacement submarines at a current estimated cost of £31bn"—though campaigners have put the cost much higher.

"Which part of the non-proliferation treaty do they not understand?" wondered Vicki Hird, campaigns and policy director at War on Want, in a statement after the vote.

"Trident renewal is a reckless and criminal act and any MP voting for it should to be ashamed." "Rather than seeking to waste billions on nuclear weapons, whose use would be illegal under almost every conceivable circumstance and would certainly lead to a huge number of civilian casualties, the U.K. government should make a clear statement for global nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation, by not renewing the system," she said.

Earlier: Newly installed U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May is prepared to authorize a nuclear strike that could kill hundreds of thousands of innocent people.

So she said before Parliament on Monday, as the body debated whether to renew Trident, Britain's aging nuclear weapons system.

According to the Independent, May was challenged on her support for the program by the SNP's George Kerevan, who asked: "Are you prepared to authorize a nuclear strike that could kill hundreds of thousands of men, women and children?" May replied with one word: "Yes."



Later, when it was his turn to speak, Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn countered that he "would not take a decision that kills millions of innocent people," saying: "I do not believe the threat of mass murder is a legitimate way to go about international relations."


adding:

Meanwhile, wrote Andrew Smith of the Campaign Against Arms Trade on Monday, "even if we put the financial implications to one side, the potential impact of the weapons is far too deadly to contemplate.

One Trident submarine has the power to kill 5.4 million people, and it would do so indiscriminately. The impact could be on an even greater scale than Hiroshima."

Opposition to Trident is widespread in Scotland, where the issue was among several fueling2014's independence campaign. Anti-Trident protests were held in more than 30 Scottish cities, towns, and villages on Saturday, according to The Herald.

This was revealed today.

I dont know much about this woman but is she a loose cannon, or just blowing steam?

What do the people of Great Britain on the Forum think of her and what she's saying in regards to this?

Are you assuming that just because she says she's prepared to strike that means she's talking first strike?

Oh boy, the beginnings of a new cold war.

Because revenge mass murder is so much more palatable?


Cmon Kets you're smart enough to know that nuking innocent people isn't a good or valid option.
Only to those who disregard life.

Like the sicko Theresa May.

I have no idea, that's why i posted in hopes someone knew more about this Woman. Is she a nutcase? Is she like Reagan threatening to push the big red button?

There's a lot of stuff going on right now in the news, tensions are high, I'm just asking what people think nothing more.

Well, she must be doing something right. She's got all of you convinced she's going to nuke the world as soon as she can!

That's more or less the point of MAD. If everyone believes she will, then no one will test her. Did none of you learn this? And have none of you been studying our frenemies who have been steadily ramping up their own militaries and armaments, treaties be damaned.

Kind of laughable. One of those subs could virtually end humanity. And, it's not like it's only the UK that's got them.

Theresa May ... she's gonna take a while to grow on me.

Never underestimate a Mad Man or Woman in a Powerful position, particularily one with the key to the nuke room.

First off you have to separate rhetoric from this.
She is in her first days of office so obviously she is taking a hard line sending a message to other countries.
Approving the Trident is just common sense.

I'm not seeing a trigger happy PM here, but I know others will.

Probably wise of the Brits to update their "defensive" systems, considering all the neighbors they just pissed off.

And rightly so.

Who cares?

They are calling her the Ice Maiden, is that posturing for the perceived enemy? Or narcissistic psychopathic tendency?

Oh what, are you really surprised? Is anyone really surprised that the most intolerably tyrannical cow currently to be abroad in high level politics in the UK, responsible for presiding over erosions of our freedoms and liberty by way of mass surveillance, presiding over the creation of the NCA (an organisation that does not need to exist, but will result in less beat officers on my block because there is only a limited number of pounds in the budget) and generally being the worst advert for womanhood since Margaret bloody Thatcher, is doing and saying utterly intolerable things?

I would have been less surprised to wind up dead after strapping myself to a train track at bloody rush hour.

Not to mention ... who wants aging and possibly leaky or defective nuclear ordinance sitting around?

They called Thatcher the Iron Lady.

IMO the Brits are going to need someone tough as nails to take on the demands of the continent if the Brexit goes through.

Sadly no, i'm not really surprised... as Intrptr mentioned, you call her 'The Ice Maiden.' If she's as evil as The Iron Rose was, everyone is in trouble.

Honestly though TrueBrit, it does concern me somewhat. There are too many crazy people in power with Nuclear weapons.

And yes, one day the world will go boom. I can only hope when that day comes, there's nothing left of me. Or anyone else for that matter.

So basically you're saying that in Britain, the PM can just order an attack like that completely unilaterally except in the event of an extreme emergency ... like someone else has already launched on you?

They called Thatcher the Iron Lady.

She actually carried war to Argentina over the Falklands. Hillary is a warmonger, too.

Whats up with that? When I was young I remember hearing women complain men were so militaristic, they wanted a women in power so they could check the arms race, tone down the male pride, bring a more peaceful perspective to the planet.

I know, different era and all. Sigh...

hm nope that's not what i'm attempting to convey, she wouldn't have a skeleton key all to herself of course, there's more to it than that.

Anyone in control of nuclear arms must be prepared to use them. It means just that, prepared. I don't see the issue as I am sure anyone given launch keys or codes is made sure they know how and are prepared in case it is needed.

Did you think she got where she is by singing "kumbyah and serving high tea"?
Every single high level politician got there by stepping over the bodies of others, yours-mine and gleefully their opponents.

While the Brits were chiding us on Hillary & Trump y'all just got "back-doored".
It's time to face it. No one who genuinely wants to serve the people is EVER going to get near any position higher than clerical. Just.Not.Gonna.Happen.

At this point HRM is looking better & better.
At least she works for a living.
