“On NATO and Stewart MacDonald” – Bella Caledonia

While threatening to use nuclear weapons is certainly a terrifying thing to do and has no part in peacebuilding or conflict resolution, NATO also relies on threats of violence as its starting point and main tool. Is this not just a thinner end of the same wedge? Scotland’s anti-nuclear aspiration will not be served if those we elect are not prepared to put in the real and necessary work oncooperation, diplomacy, and taking sustainable steps to look after each other and the planet,instead of quick-fix sound-bites about common security that describe actions that imperil everyone.
