U.S. Disarmament

Defense Industry Conversion



The official storyline is that conversion of defense industries to peaceful, civilian use occurred as a result of the end of the Cold War and declining defense budgets.    But that is only half the story.   If one digs back through history, one finds that U.S. defense policy has been on a single track since the founding of the United Nations.  That single track seems to be to disarm the United States, bankrupt it, and turn power over unelected, international cominterns.  The ostensible purpose seems to be world peace and global harmony.   This is quite a joke when one considers that the world is a far more dangerous place now than in any time in world history - and it is because of the democratization of the weapons of war and the consolidation of wealth into the hands of a few.  Even a fiction writer would not dare to write something as absurd as the doings at Davos1, where the world's richest and most beautiful people come together to drink champagne, eat caviar and cluck their tongues about the poor starving and diseased people of Africa.  While the world's mightiest military (we are told) searches for weapons of mass destruction in caves in some of the most primitive regions of the world.  And, as if that were not enough, we now have a small group of has-been world leaders who have declared themselves, "The Elders"2 - tribal chiefs for the global village. 



On September 25, 1961, John F. Kennedy gave a speech at the United Nation calling for the complete disarmament of the United States and Soviet Union.  The next day, September 26, 1961, Kennedy signed Public Law 87-297, "Arms Control and Disarmament Act".   In the over fifty years since, our government and military leaders have been disarming our country - and looting it at the same time.  We were funding a military that was being dismantled in the United States - and building a military offshore.  So it would seem, the only real 'superpower' this government has is the ability to create a false reality for the masses  using Mainstream Media and American Pravda wire service as the funnels for propaganda and social conditioning for the demise of the nation. 



September 25, 1961, John F. Kennedy UN Speech3

"...So let us here resolve that Dag Hammarskjold did not live, or die in vain.  Let us call a truce to terror.  Let us invoke the blessings of peace. And as we build an international capacity to keep peace, let us join in dismantling the national capacity to wage war.
"Today, every inhabitant of this planet must contemplate the day when this planet may no longer be habitable.  Every man, woman, and child lives under a nuclear sword of Damocles, hanging by the slenderest of threads, capable of being cut at any moment by accident, or miscalculation, or by madness.  The weapons of war must be abolished before they abolish us.

It is in this spirit that the recent Belgrade Conference--recognizing that this is no longer a Soviet problem, or an American problem, but a human problem--endorsed a program of "general, complete and strictly and internationally controlled disarmament".... And it is in this spirit that we have now presented with the agreement of the Soviet Union--under the label both nations now accept of "general and complete disarmament".

The program to be presented to this Assembly--for general and complete disarmament under effective and international control....

It would completely halt their production as well as their testing, their transfer as well as their possession.  It would achieve under the eyes of an international disarmament organization, a steady reduction in force, both nuclear and conventional, until it has abolished all armies and all weapons except those needed for internal order and a new United Nations Peace Force. 

To destroy arms, however, is not enough.  We must create even as we destroy--creating worldwide law and law enforcement as we outlaw worldwide war and weapons.  In the world we seek, the United National Emergency Forces, which have been hastily assembled, uncertainly supplied, and inadequately financed, will never be enough.

Therefore, the United States recommends that all member nations earmark special peacekeeping units in their armed forces--to be on call of the United Nations, to be specially trained and quickly available, and with advanced provision for financial and logistic support. 

In addition, the American delegation will suggest a series of steps to improve the United Nations' machinery for the peaceful settlement of disputes--for on the spot fact finding, mediation, and adjudication--for extending the rules of international law.

We shall propose, further, cooperative efforts between all nations in weather prediction and eventually in weather control.  We shall propose, finally, a global system of Communications satellites linking the whole world in telegraph and telephone and radio and television.  The day need not be far away when such a system will televise the proceedings of this body to every corner of the world for the benefit of peace.

Finally--finally, as President of the United States, I consider it my duty to report to this Assembly on two threats to the peace which are not on your crowded agenda, but which causes us and most of you the deepest concern.

The first threat on which I wish to report is widely misunderstood: the smoldering coals of war in Southeast Asia. South Vietnam is already under attack--sometimes by a single assassin, sometimes by a band of guerillas, recently by full battalions...

The very simple question confronting the world community is whether measures can be devised to protect small and the weak from such tactics.  For if they are successful in Laos and South Vietnam, the gates will be opened wide.

"Arms Control and Disarmament Act"


October 1, 1990, George H. W. Bush UN Speech4
And on a personal note, I want to say that, having witnessed the unprecedented unity and cooperation of the past two months, that I have never been prouder to have once served within your ranks and never been prouder that the United States is the host country for the United Nations.

The founding of the United Nations embodied our deepest hopes for a peaceful world. And during the past year, we've come closer than ever before to realizing those hopes. We've seen a century sundered by barbed threats and barbed wire, give way to a new era of peace and competition and freedom.

The revolution of '89 swept the world almost with a life of its own, carried by a new breeze of freedom that transformed the political climate from Central Europe to Central America, and touched almost every corner of the globe. That breeze has been sustained by a now almost universal recognition of a simple, fundamental truth: The human spirit cannot be locked up forever.

Not since 1945 have we seen the real possibility of using the United Nations as it was designed, as a center for international collective security.

New Partnership of Nations

Two days from now, the world will be watching when the cold war is formally buried in Berlin. And in this time of testing, a fundamental question must be asked, a question not for any one nation but for the United Nations, and the question is this: Can we work together in a new partnership of nations? Can the collective strength of the world community expressed by the United Nations unite to deter and defeat aggression? Because the cold war's battle of ideas is not the last epic battle of this century.

Two months ago, in the waning weeks of one of history's most hopeful summers, the vast, still beauty of the peaceful Kuwaiti desert was fouled by the stench of diesel and the roar of steel tanks. And once again, the sound of distant thunder echoed across a cloudless sky. And once again, the world awoke to face the guns of August.

But this time, the world was ready. The United Nations Security Council's resolute response to Iraq's unprovoked aggression has been without precedent. Since the invasion on Aug. 2, the Council has passed eight major resolutions setting the terms for a solution to the crisis. The Iraqi regime has yet to face the facts. But as I said last month, the annexation of Kuwait will not be permitted to stand. And this is not simply the view of the United States. It is the view of every Kuwaiti, the Arab League, the United Nations. Iraq's leaders should listen. It is Iraq against the world.

Along with others, we have dispatched military forces to the region to enforce sanctions, to deter and if need be defend against further aggression. And we seek no advantage for ourselves, nor do we seek to maintain our military forces in Saudi Arabia for one day longer than is necessary. U.S. forces were sent at the request of the Saudi Government.

Open Borders, Trade and Minds

I see a world of open borders, open trade and, most importantly, open minds, a world that celebrates the common heritage that belongs to all the world's people, taking pride not just in hometown or homeland but in humanity itself. I see a world touched by a spirit like that of the Olympics, based not on competition that's driven by fear, but sought out of joy and exhilaration and a true quest for excellence.

And I see a world where democracy continues to win new friends and convert old foes, and where the Americas - North, Central and South - can provide a model for the future of all humankind, the world's first completely democratic hemisphere. And I see a world building on the emerging new model of European unity, not just Europe, but the whole world whole and free.

There are 10 more years until this century is out, 10 more years to put the struggles of the 20th century permanently behind us. Ten more years to help launch a new partnership of nations. And throughout those 10 years, and beginning now, the United Nations has a new and vital role in building towards that partnership.

Now is the Time of Testing

And we've shown that the U.N. can count on the collective strength of the international community.  We've shown that the U.N. can rise to the challenge of aggression, just as its founders hoped that it would. And now is the time of testing. We must also show that the United Nations is the place to build international support and consensus for meeting the other challenges we face. The world remains a dangerous place, and our security and well-being often depends, in part, on events occurring far away. We need serious international cooperative efforts to make headway on the threats to the environment, on terrorism, on managing the debt burden, on fighting the scourge of international drug trafficking and on refugees and peacekeeping efforts around the world.

And the time has come to structure the U.N. role in such efforts more formally, and so today I propose that the U.N. establish a special coordinator for electoral assistance, to be assisted by a U.N. Electoral Commission comprised of distinguished experts from around the world.




Sec. 3. As used in this Act--
      (a) The terms "arms control" and "disarmament" mean the identification, verification, inspection, limitation, control, reduction, or
elimination, of armed forces and armaments of all kinds under international agreement including the necessary steps taken under such an agreement to establish an effective system of international control, or to create and strengthen international organizations for the maintenance of peace.


"...elimination of armed forces and armaments of all kinds"!!!

Congress KNEW that disarmament would be the end of U.S. national sovereignty:

Congressional Record, Proceedings, September 19, 19618

Public Law 87-297 is a far cry from an agreement to stop nuclear arms production.  Calling for full and complete disarmament of the United States and it's citizens and subjugating the United States to an International Comintern was an act of treason.

March 6, 1991, George H.W. Bush, Address to a Joint Session of Congress17

"First, we must work together to create shared security arrangements in the region. Our friends and allies in the Middle East recognize that they will bear the bulk of the responsibility for regional security. But we want them to know that just as we stood with them to repel aggression, so now America stands ready to work with them to secure the peace. This does not mean stationing U.S. ground forces in the Arabian Peninsula, but it does mean American participation in joint exercises involving both air and ground forces. It means maintaining a capable U.S. naval presence in the region, just as we have for over 40 years. Let it be clear: Our vital national interests depend on a stable and secure Gulf.

A comprehensive peace must be grounded in United Nations Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338 and the principle of territory for peace. This principle must be elaborated to provide for Israel's security and recognition and at the same time for legitimate Palestinian political rights. Anything else would fail the twin test of fairness and security. The time has come to put an end to Arab-Israeli conflict.

But we cannot lead a new world abroad if, at home, it's politics as usual on American defense and diplomacy.  It's time to turn away from the temptation to protect unneeded weapons systems and obsolete bases.

Now we can see a new world coming into view.  A world in which there is a very real prospect of a new world order.  In the words of Winston Churchill, a world order in which "the principles of justice and fair play protect the weak against the strong..."  A world where United Nations, freed from cold war stalemate, is poised to fulfill the historic vision of its founders.  A world in which freedom and respect for human rights finds a home among all nations. 

Even the new world order cannot guarantee an era of perpetual peace.  But enduring peace must be our mission.  Our success in the Gulf will shape not only the new world order we seek but our mission here at home.

Our first priority is to get this economy rolling again. The fear and uncertainty caused by the Gulf crisis were understandable. But now that the war is over, oil prices are down, interest rates are down, and confidence is rightly coming back. Americans can move forward to lend, spend, and invest in this, the strongest economy on Earth.

We must also enact the legislation that is key to building a better America.  For example, in 1990, we enacted a historic Clean Air Act. And now we've proposed a national energy strategy. We passed a child-care bill that put power in the hands of parents. And today, we're ready to do the same thing with our schools and expand choice in education. We passed a crime bill that made a useful start in fighting crime and drugs. This year, we're sending to Congress our comprehensive crime package to finish the job. We passed the landmark Americans with Disabilities Act. And now we've sent forward our civil rights bill. We also passed the aviation bill. This year, we've sent up our new highway bill. And these are just a few of our pending proposals for reform and renewal.

So, tonight I call on the Congress to move forward aggressively on our domestic front. Let's begin with two initiatives we should be able to agree on quickly: transportation and crime. And then, let's build on success with those and enact the rest of our agenda. If our forces could win the ground war in 100 hours, then surely the Congress can pass this legislation in 100 days. Let that be a promise we make tonight to the American people.

"Outline of the Post-War New World Map as the U.S.A., with the cooperation of the Democracies of Latin-America, the British Commonwealth of Nations and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, assumes world leadership for the establishment of a New World Moral Order for permanent peace, freedom, justice, security, and world reconstruction"

Text on the map12

8. For considerations of hemispheric defense and in the spirit and tradition of the new Monroe Doctrine of hemispheric solidarity and the "Good Neighbor" policy, the U.S.A. with the consent of the Latin-American Republics, shall obtain control and protectorate rights of the relinquished territories.

9. To strengthen our position in the Caribbean area which is of obvious importance to hemispheric defense, all possible inducements shall be offered to our neighbors of Central America and the West Indies to facilitate their entrance as equal states of the U.S.A. as outlined on map.

"Friday, he inaugurated the Gorbachev Foundation, USA, which is moving into new headquarters in the Presidio in San Francisco.

In his speech in San Francisco, Gorbachev announced that the foundation is creating a national task force on U.S. Military base closings.  It will be co-chaired by former San Jose Mayor Tom McEnery and former Democratic Rep. Mel Levine of Southern California.

The Group will call for a national conference of the 36 U.S. communities that the base closings affect." 24
