The following quote by Martin Amis seems to summarise completely the madness of the ‘logic’ of nuclear weapons
“What is the only provocation that could bring about the use of nuclear weapons? Nuclear weapons.
What is the priority target for nuclear weapons? Nuclear weapons.
What is the only established defense against nuclear weapons? Nuclear weapons.
How do we prevent the use of nuclear weapons? By threatening to use nuclear weapons.
And we can’t get rid of nuclear weapons, because of nuclear weapons. The intransigence, it seems, is a function of the weapons themselves.”
We cannot, perhaps, prevent Westminster from purchasing nuclear weapons but we can ensure that they are not sited on Scottish soil or in our waters. We can take the target from our childrens’ backs and remove the financial burden from their pockets. It can be done as easily as marking a cross in a box marked Yes!!
