Since I do not want to block the user for "promoting another website," I take the liberty to note that the link below is a post about the attitude of Australia and its government to nuclear weapons throughout history after World War II

Hopefully to put a link to the Open Democracy website will not similarly be construable as "promoting another website", given that it devotes so much space to promoting DiEM25. This article on nuclear disarmament was published today: https://www.opendemocracy.net/torgeir-e ... -407368757 It is written in the Aesopian language that is habitual in the anti-nuclear-weapons movement, particularly its more circumspect sectors, but nobody in the anti-nuclear-weapons movement could surely dispute its conclusion that "Western countries are more secure without nuclear arms".

Does this mean that Macron is starting a significant crackdown on corruption?

French police raid nuclear developer’s office in Paris
Adam Sage, Paris

November 29 2017, 12:01am, The Times

The headquarters of the French state-owned company that designed Britain’s new nuclear reactors was raided by police yesterday.

About 50 officers searched the offices of Areva, the nuclear engineering group, as part of a preliminary inquiry into corruption allegations.

The inquiry was launched by the French national financial prosecution service into Areva’s purchase in 2011 of uranium from Niger worth $319.8 million. The uranium was sold later to Russian traders who made an $82 million profit and then to a Lebanese company that made $17.6 million, according to French media reports.

A spokesman for Areva said that the deals had been lawful and were part of negotiations with an unspecified customer to build a nuclear reactor. In the end the reactor was never built.

A spokesman for Niger’s government told Le Monde that it had made about $800,000 from the transactions and had used the money to buy cars for presidential bodyguards.

Areva, which designed the two reactors being built at Hinkley Point by EDF, the state-owned French energy provider, is already under investigation in connection with Niger. An inquiry was opened in 2014 into allegations that it overpaid Uramin, a Canadian mining group, whose main uranium mines were in Niger. Anne Lauvergeon, Areva’s former chief executive, denies wrongdoing. Areva confirmed that its offices outside Paris had been raided and said that it was co-operating with police and prosecutors.

Very illuminating interview with Daniel Ellsberg on the subject of nuclear weapons. Explains things such as how launch decisions are delegated down the chain of command, and near misses that have occurred in the past.

I hope we, DiEM 25 is in accordance with the nobel peace prize winner Ican to abolish nuclear weapons and urges all european member states to sign and ratify the UN-Nuclear Ban. This implies automatically the departure of all US nuclear weapons of our continent, the deduction of all nuclear weapons from any european country and an exit from NATO nuclear structures.

Thinking further it would actually be meaningful to replace NATO by a new system of collective security including russia which aims at peacekeeping by conflict prevention, balance of interests, and international kooperation. The OSCE could be develpoed in such a way.
Europa has to be and stay a peace project!
The regional block-building, resulting from power-politics confrontation between Russia and USA/EU renders the solution of the nationality conflicts even more difficult.
Not only for good and untainted relations of the EU with Russia or any non “western” country as well as global stability it is crucial to oppose any entwinement between EU and NATO, NATO extension and NATO altogether. The existence of the NATO hasn’t been justified for almost twenty years now. The Treaty of Warsaw was dissolved and the same should have happened to its Western counterpart. We have to oppose the policy of solving conflicts by using military force and call for a Europe without a NATO.
Only force-free solutions including all conflict parties and their legitimate, according to international law, justified interests can lead to a permanent and just peace.
We need a Europe , which rejects the arms race and instead aims at comprehensive disarmament and arms conversion and demilitirization on all sides and takes responsibility for that. We need a Europe in political independence from the USA, which contributes to overcome thinking in political and military blocks.
We reject a Europe as the junior Partner of the USA, or one imitating the USA in it´s politics of military and economic imperialistic behaviour. Only EU which promotes peace and stability has a great chance a mediator for peace and civil-political conflict solution. Also or new EU has to stand for and promote lasting development chances and just transition.
If there could ever be anything like a European Armed Forces or a European army ist could only come into existance if all national armys are dissolved and it would be parliament army committed to neutrality and defence only and in complete rejection to any military interventions.
