We now have 44 countries that have ratified the UN Treaty to abolish nuclear weapons and make them illegal, Ireland being one of the latest.
For those interested, it is worth reading the comments from the Irish Foreign Affairs Minister, Simon Coveney.
It is also worth considering where our so-called defence budget is spent; like Pine Gap, the satellite base in Alice Springs, which enables drones to target innocent victims in faraway lands that many Australians wouldn’t know existed.
It seems that the federal government has a practice of using people as collateral damage, as in the victims of COVID-19 in nursing homes at the present.
