US President Donald Trump’s neoconservative advisors are pushing the United States towards nuclear war through military adventurism and fueling tensions with Russia, co-winner of the Nobel Peace Prize and activist Helen Caldicott told Sputnik.
On Thursday, the United States dropped the largest non-nuclear bomb in the US military arsenal targeting terrorist underground tunnels in Afghanistan, which Trump said was meant to also send a signal to North Korea. Last week, Trump ordered the bombing of a Syrian military airfield, which has escalated US-Russia tensions.
“In fostering a belligerent attitude towards Russia in this uncontrolled nuclear age we are sleepwalking to Armageddon,” Caldicott, founder of Physicians for Social Responsibility, said on Friday.

Global peace campaigner Helen Caldicott said that in the light of recent attack on Syria, it is “absolutely terrifying” that US President Trump has a control of huge conventional and nuclear arsenal.
President Donald Trump’s decision to attack Syria with cruise missiles last week made the prospect of his control of the US conventional and strategic armed forces extremely alarming, Caldicott told Sputnik.
“It is absolutely terrifying that Trump has this huge conventional and nuclear arsenal at his fingertips with virtually no oversight as president,” Caldicott, founder of Physicians for Social Responsibility that was co-winner of the 1985 Nobel Peace Prize, said.
Caldicott warned that the missile strike on a Syrian airbase in the Idlib province last Thursday raised the likelihood that Trump could at any time order other far-reaching strikes with US armed forces against other targets around the... read more
“Do not go to Japan. Do not under any circumstances take your children to Japan, because you don’t know what you’re eating and where the food is sourced…
And the Japanese are trying now to export their radioactive food to London and elsewhere. Taiwan has refused to receive it. But, it’s dangerous and it’s going to continue to be dangerous for the rest of time. It’s sad.”
In this interview, conducted and recorded on International Women’s Day, Dr. Caldicott talks about the high radiation reading recently recorded at Unit 2, efforts to contain the radioactive water spilling out of the facility, projected health risks from the cesium, tritium, strontium and other isotopes spewing from the site and much, much more. Caldicott also extends the discussion... read more
The White House announced its plans to increase the US defense budget by $54 billion dollars with part of it going to restoring the US’s nuclear capabilities. Nobel Peace Prize nominee and author of the book “Sleepwalking to Armageddon: The Threat of Nuclear Annihilation,” Dr. Helen Caldicott joins RT America’s Simone Del Rosario to discuss.
Dr Helen Caldicott, explains recent robot photos taken of Fukushima’s Daiichi nuclear reactors: radiation levels have not peaked, but have continued to spill toxic waste into the Pacific Ocean — but it’s only now the damage has been photographed.
RECENT reporting of a huge radiation measurement at Unit 2 in the Fukushima Daichi reactor complex does not signify that there is a peak in radiation in the reactor building.
All that it indicates is that, for the first time, the Japanese have been able to measure the intense radiation given off by the molten fuel, as each previous attempt has led to failure because the radiation is so intense the robotic parts were functionally destroyed.
The radiation measurement was 530 sieverts, or 53,000 rems (Roentgen Equivalent... read more
Filmmaker Regis Tremblay states what few others dare to say. Humanity is on the brink of extinction! Nuclear power is not safe. 48 of America’s nuclear power plants are leaking and there is no way to get rid of nuclear waste.
America’s reckless provocations of both Russia and China, two nuclear-armed countries, risk a nuclear holocaust from which no one survives. Climate change and global warming, if not mitigated immediately, will end the human experiment on earth sooner rather than later.
