There are numerous threads and posts on ATS that actually advocate
the use of nuclear weapons against Iran, Iraq, Syria, North Korea, well, the
list could be rather all-inclusive.
Many posters on ATS are young and many don't remember or, possibly, don't even know about the Chernobyl nuclear accident. Many don't know the
dangers of the peaceful use of nuclear energy much less the deliberate use of nuclear weapons.
We are commemorating the twentieth anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear accident -- April 25th - 26th, 1986 -- and this is an opportune time to help
make clear the danger of nuclear weapons. Consider that the result of Chernobyl was an accident and the result has been devastating. Ponder the
results of a deliberate use of a nuclear weapon.
Hopefully, the sobering content of this link will help educate people about the danger of nuclear energy and that it might make clear that the use of
nuclear weapons are unthinkable.
Twenty years after Chernobyl, we still find people dying, people developing cancer and thousands of children sick.
