@nativeson, the article is about the appeal that the Marshall Islands just filed in the lawsuit against the United States in U.S. Federal Court. I assume that the Independent didn't mention the International Court of Justice cases because, as journalists, they decided that the pertinent information at the moment surrounds the U.S. case. I don't know - maybe you should write a letter to the editor.

I'm pretty certain that any group that believes that nuclear weapons are illegal under international law, not to mention grotesquely immoral, opposes any nation possessing them - enemy or ally.

@nativeson, all nine nuclear-armed nations were named in individual lawsuits by the Marshall Islands at the International Court of Justice in The Hague. You can read all of the individual lawsuit filings for each country (including detailed filings against Russia, China and North Korea) at

Come on, Independent, this is not a party trick with a cigarette. This is a test of a missile that delivers a nuclear warhead to pretty much any part of the world within minutes. Your title and description make it sound like some fun event, not a practice run for killing hundreds of thousands of people.

@dou4now, North Korea can barely build a nuclear weapon for themselves, much less for any one else. Israel currently has at least 80 nuclear warheads.

This is the same NRC that kicked out its Chairman earlier this year for voting against approving a new nuclear power plant back east because we haven't yet learned everything we can from what happened at Fukushima. Zero credibility when it comes to "safety."

What a shame. Chris and Kenny did a great job with the Presidio and it was a great asset to the community. Best of luck to them in their new ventures!

It was an honor to know and work with Selma. She made a difference in the world.

@Tom, this is not about an idealistic view of the world. The message of all those I know who engaged in this civil resistance is that the land-based missiles make the US more at risk because it gives the Russians a reason to continue targeting us with their arsenal. The Minuteman missiles are first-strike weapons only, "use them or lose them." Even operating as we are under the theory of nuclear deterrence, nothing would be lost in terms of US security by scrapping the land-based portion of the triad.

I saw Zack Paul's work at the First Thursday opening a couple of weeks ago and it is outstanding. Highly recommended.
