核武器競争が到来した!トランプはINF禁止のミサイルテストをした‼

The nuclear arms race is here

Dear Everyone,

Earlier today, it was reported that the Trump administration tested a missile with a range that until earlier this month had been banned by the INF Treaty with Russia. According to the Pentagon, “data from the test will be used to inform future weapon development.”

The nuclear arms race we’ve been warning you about is on our doorstep. 
Please chip in today with an emergency contribution to Global Zero and help strengthen the safeguards against a full-blown nuclear arms race.

Negotiated by Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev, the INF Treaty sent thousands of nuclear weapons to the scrap heap, helped end the Cold War, and kept Europe out of nuclear crosshairs for a generation. It held for almost 30 years before Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin allowed it to collapse over mutual allegations of cheating, without making any serious diplomatic effort to resolve the dispute.

The INF Treaty has been dead for less than 3 weeks and the United States and Russia are already racing to disaster. 
Today’s U.S. missile test comes on the heels of a deadly accident earlier this month in Russia involving an experimental nuclear-powered cruise missile that exposed tens of thousands of people to radiation levels 20x higher than the norm.

If this nuclear arms race heats up we can expect to see more of this: more tests, more accidents, more dangerous provocations. Each one carries a risk of misunderstanding or miscalculation that could rapidly spiral out of control — leading one side or the other to reach for the launch codes.

We’re working with former American and Russian officials and top experts to do everything we can to keep that from happening. Can we count on you for a donation to support our efforts?

Rosan, I know there’s a lot going on in the world right now — a lot of fires that need to be put out. It can be hard to prioritize the nuclear threat when everything else feels so urgent.

But listen to me when I tell you that the most important guardrails on the planet are falling off. 
The international system put in place to protect us from the buildup of nuclear weapons — weapons designed to kill millions of people in seconds, and poison whole nations for generations — is being pulled apart.

If we don’t get this right, we won’t get a chance to fix anything else.

With conviction and resolve,
Derek
