Nuclear Heartland and an End to Land-Based Missiles

Speaker: John La Forge
Date: Friday,  March 11, 2016 @ 7:30 p.m.

Place: Dorothy Day Catholic Worker, 503 Rock Creek Church Rd. NW, Washington, D.C. 20010

 
John LaForge is Co-editor with Arianne Peterson of Nuclear Heartland, Revised: Guide to the 450 Land-Based Missiles in the United States, will discuss the new book, its detailed maps of the three nuclear missile fields, recent high-level recommendations for their elimination, anti-nuclear protests that were inspired in part by the original “Nuclear Heartland” and the series of frightening blunders committed by the bored, distracted, and accident-prone “missileers” who still stand ready to launch the uncontrollable weapons on a moment’s notice. As Lt. Gen. James Kowalski said in 2014, it isn’t Russia or China but, “The greatest threat to my force is an accident. The greatest risk to my force is doing something stupid.”
Come hear about what Dr. Helen Caldicott calls “one of the most frightening books I have ever read.”
