thinking, and thus we drift toward unparalleled catastrophe. We shall require

/The world has about 17,000 nuclear weapons. The U.S. has about 8,000, but  
intends to spend more than $200 billion, to develop "enhanced" nuclear  
warheads, new missiles, new bombers, new submarines, and new warhead  
manufacturing facilities. We disagree-- do you?  Sign the petition! [1]///
