The documentary “Countdown to Zero” is a must see for anyone concerned about world peace. Below is just a trailer, but the full movie is on netflix and on youtube.
Many people have argued that religion is harmless, it gives people solace and comfort. I think that any belief which does not have its basis in the absolute truth and personal experience is dangerous. Whilst the documentary deals with the issue of a nuclear catastrophe as a result of an accident or miscalculation, it also deals with it being caused as an act of madness. The documentary echoes what I have thought all along, that if a terrorist got their hands on a nuclear weapon, they would have no hesitation in using it.
This is evident in the recent Paris attacks and 9/11. To repeat a quote from Voltaire I mentioned in my last post “Those that can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.” You can go back in history and there was the crusades and the spanish inquisition.
What is alarming in the documentary is the relative ease with which one can build a nuclear bomb, and although buying the nuclear material like enriched uranium would take a lot of funds, the material is nowhere near as tightly as controlled as it should be, and could be imported into a country with relative ease.
The documentary is made by the same producer from “An Inconvenient Truth” one of my favourite documentaries. They asked a number of people what they thought was an acceptable number of nuclear weapons for the world to have and their answers were all none, zero, etc. Hence the title of the movie, a Countdown to Zero nuclear weapons.
