The RainBow Warrior: 20 Years Later

For those of you that do not know, 20 years ago French president Francois Mitterrand ordered the bombing of the Rainbow Warrior, a protest ship that, at the time, had been dispatched to protest France's testing of nuclear weapons.

20 years later, the threat of a nuclear war has never been higher. The U.S., Korea, China, Pakistan, India, Iran... Not a month goes by without one of these countries seriously threatening to use it's nuclear weapons.

...and it saddens me, it really saddens me that not once last week did I hear a news report on the Rainbow Warrior.

In fact the only (english) internet site that I could find that covered the anniversary was Democracy Now!

Thank God for Amy Goodman.
