Canada joins with North Korea, U.S., Russia to vote against nuclear disarmament resolution
"Canada’s vote against this resolution puts this country, quite simply, on the wrong side of history. "

On Thursday at the United Nations there was a vote on establishing negotiations for a treaty banning nuclear weapons. 123 nations voted in favour of the resolution. But those nations with nuclear weapons, including the U.S., Russia, China, North Korea, France and others voted against it. Canada also voted against the resolution (38 nations, including many NATO nations, opposed the effort to ban nuclear weapons….16 others abstained).

Co-sponsored by 57 nations, the resolution calls for a conference next year “to negotiate a legally binding instrument to prohibit nuclear weapons, leading towards their total elimination.”

“Opposing its call for a nuclear-free world is awkward for world leaders, and none more so than U.S. President Barack Obama,” Bloomberg news service noted in its article. “He’s preparing to leave office seven years after he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in large part for what the award panel called his ‘vision of, and work for, a world without nuclear weapons.’ ”

Peggy Mason, Former Canadian Ambassador for Disarmament to the UN, now President of the Rideau Institute released the following statement after Canada’s UN vote today against Resolution L.41:

“The First Committee on Disarmament and International Security of the UN General Assembly today passed an historic resolution, mandating the launch in 2017 of negotiations for a legally binding instrument prohibiting nuclear weapons. Such a ban would reinforce customary international law against the threat or use of nuclear weapons and pave the way for further negotiations on their verifiable destruction and ultimate elimination.  

Tensions between Russia and the USA are dangerously high. Massive nuclear weapons modernization programmes are underway. The negotiation to be launched by this resolution is the best hope the international community has to move away from the nuclear brink.

Canada’s vote against this resolution puts this country, quite simply, on the wrong side of history. Canada was one of only a handful of countries to vote NO. In so doing we joined with most other NATO member states, in blatant contradiction of our legal obligation under the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty (NPT) Article VI to enter into good faith negotiations for nuclear disarmament. This is the exact opposite of what Canada should be doing. We should be working as hard as we can to reduce NATO’s unconscionable and unnecessary reliance on nuclear weapons, not using that reliance as a reason for opposing nuclear disarmament negotiations at the UN. In that regard, we note that fellow NATO member, Netherlands, withstood American pressure and abstained rather than voting no.

Canada has another opportunity to put this right when the General Assembly votes on this resolution in early December. We call on Canada to change its vote ideally to a YES but, at a minimum, to an abstention and at the same time to signal its intent to contribute constructively to the negotiation, once launched. These actions would be worthy of a country seeking to be elected to the UN Security Council in 2021.”

Gladiator Heads? Mystery of Trove of British Skulls Solved

A trove of skulls and other body parts unearthed in the heart of London may have once belonged to Roman gladiators, war captives or criminals, a new study suggests.

The remains, described in the January issue of the Journal of Archaeological Science, belonged to about 40 men, mostly ages 25 to 35, and were marred by violence: cheek fractures, blunt-force trauma to the head, decapitation and injuries from sharp weapons, said study co-author Rebecca Redfern, a curator and bioarchaeologist at the Museum of London.

After the healing formula was discovered, the Administrator tried hard to get its receipt, but because there were several cases of leaked blueprints, plans, and other secret information already, Medic was adamant to keep the formula for himself to prevent the risk BLU will get their hands on it, rather willing to face the Administrator’s wrath instead. A couple of shouting and staring contests later, she backed off, but now Medic is on the Mann Co. weapon department’s blacklist and is forbidden to carry conventional guns on the battlefield, which forced him to build his own combat equipment.

BatWar on Women released their eponymous album on Bridge Nine Records on Tuesday, February 9, following up on their 2012 EP release Improvised Weapons. The co-ed group of five musicians—comprised of Potter on vocals, guitarists Brooks Harlan and Nancy Hornburg, bassist Suzanne Werner, and drummer Evan Tanner—play heavy metal riffs that hook listeners with their striking attention to details and melodies.

The band name struck Potter as “really fucking punk.“ “I’m not going to dance around the fact that there is a war on women. I’m not implying it. I’m telling you,” she pronounces.

Throughout the 11-song album War on Women, Potter verbalizes her opinions as bluntly as punk did in its heyday. But Potter is quick to differentiate herself and her band’s musical leanings from either old-school punk or riot grrrl. War on Women recently toured with the heavy, anarchistic group Propagandhi. She cites her own musical influences of thrash and her love of early Metallica.

“I mean, me and Nancy listen to Rihanna,” she also says with a little laugh. “But I don’t know if that comes across in a guitar line!”

David Cameron has said that he would use nuclear weapons
David Cameron has said there are circumstances in which he would launch a nuclear attack on another country. The PM described nuclear bombs as “the ultimate insurance policy” and said the attack could be “justified”. Mr Cameron’s statement comes after Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said he would not use nuclear bombs on another country’s population.

ah yes, an insurance policy

you know, when you put a little aside each month so that if there’s an emergency you can simply vapourise all life on earth in a thermonuclear inferno

Modern art was CIA 'weapon'
For decades in art circles it was either a rumour or a joke, but now it is confirmed as a fact. The Central Intelligence Agency used American modern art - including the works of such artists as Jackson Pollock, Robert Motherwell, Willem de Kooning and Mark Rothko - as a weapon in the Cold War. In the manner of a Renaissance prince - except that it acted secretly - the CIA fostered and promoted American Abstract Expressionist painting around the world for more than 20 years.

A modern muveszet mint propaganda

tbh danse probably loves u entering and exiting power armor + modding your weapons and armor cos he values intelligence and resourcefulness

with the time jumps in fast traveling between entering/exiting the armor it’s been hrs so he’s probably still excited over the fact you favor that bulky armor like he does where as with modding weapons and such, the brotherhood mostly favors prewar tech like laser and plasma weapons but they’re pragmatic at heart and he sees the SS modding away at their base armor and weapons to make them stronger or faster or w/e the situation calls for as fucking incredible and is genuinely impressed and proud of how smart you are

Gladiator Heads? Mystery of Trove of British Skulls Solved

Old find

Great Britain’s ancient cities are littered with archaeological treasures, many of which are often dug up accidentally prior to construction. For instance, in 2013, the burial site of King Richard III was found under a parking lot in Leicester, England, and in April 2013, a medieval knight’s tomb was uncovered under a Scottish parking lot. The new site was excavated in 1988 prior to construction, and the skulls and remains of 40 people, along with scrap leather, were found at a marshy site in a pit. During the Roman period, the area, near the London Wall, was filled with small timber workshops where shoemakers toiled. The site was also close to an amphitheater, and because of its proximity to a stream, it had religious and ritual purposes as well, Redfern said. Due to a lack of funding, the skulls were never thoroughly analyzed but were instead taken to the Museum of London, where they languished for decades.
