"Trump is igniting a perilous new nuclear arms race"
-- Washington Post
Now Trump wants our Vermont National Guard to host USA’s newest nuclear bomber.
WE DON'T WANT ANY PART OF IT
“The United States is… incorporating nuclear capability on the F-35.”
--Dept of Defense, Nuclear Posture Review, Feb 2018
That's the weapon the Air Force intends to station with our Vermont National Guard.
It’s part of the Pentagon’s plan to build a whole new generation of Nuclear Weapons.
The Hiroshima bomb killed 150,000 people. Our current nuclear arsenal can destroy the world several times over. And now they want to build more nuclear weapons.
We refuse to participate in this insanity.
We refuse to house any part of a nuclear weapons system in Vermont.
We refuse to kill civilians and destroy whole cities with these weapons of mass destruction.
And, we don’t want to be destroyed ourselves.
As the first operational F-35 Air National Guard base, Burlington Vermont would automatically become a target in the event of war. That’s because nuclear weapons strategy is to target delivery vehicles (bombers, not the bombs).
This is our opportunity to oppose Trump’s new nuclear arms race.
There is a resolution in the State House to reject the basing of any part of a new nuclear weapons system in Vermont.
The beginning of the end of nuclear weapons starts in Vermont.
