Tell Your Senators and Representative: Escalating Rhetoric Against Russia Could Lead to Nuclear Catastrophe

In 1963, the same year as his “I Have a Dream” speech, Dr. King pointedly said: “We have guided missiles and misguided men.” Later -- speaking of “a world torn between the tensions of East and West” -- he warned that “we live each day on the verge of nuclear co-annihilation.”

The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists has moved its “Doomsday Clock” even closer to midnight, declaring: “The United States and Russia -- which together possess more than 90 percent of the world’s nuclear weapons -- remained at odds in a variety of theaters, from Syria to Ukraine to the borders of NATO; both countries continued wide-ranging modernizations of their nuclear forces, and serious arms control negotiations were nowhere to be seen.”
