In a newly released video, titled "Will America use nuclear weapons in a military showdown with Iran?", Dr Jorge Hirsch, Professor of Physics at University of California San Diego, compellingly draws the attention of the international community to the threats and dangers of a US nuclear attack on Iran.In an August 2005 issue of The American Conservative, former CIA officer Philip Giraldi raised the alarm over in-process Pentagon contingency plans drafted in preparation for another terrorist attack in the United States. The response includes a plan for a massive air assault on Iran with the use of both conventional and tactical nuclear weapons regardless of whether Iran is any way involved in such an attack against the U.S. One month after the publication of Giraldi's warnings, physicists from around the world, including numerous Nobel laureates and prominent figures, signed a petition expressing their dismay at seeing the architects of Bush administration policy embrace the use of nuclear weapons as a tool in warfare like any other. The new US policy to use nuclear weapons against non-nuclear countries has been officially formulated in two US government documents Nuclear Posture Review delivered to Congress in December 2001 and Doctrine for Joint Nuclear Operations dated March 15, 2005.In the new video produced with the support of volunteers of the Campaign Against Sanctions and Military Intervention in Iran (CASMII), the UC San Diego Physicist and signatory to the petition Dr Jorge Hirsch outlines the devastating consequences that are certain to follow if the U.S. pursues a policy of deploying nuclear weapons. He urges the US public to ask the Congress to confront this possibility.With Iran's civilian nuclear program having been singled out for referral to the United Nations Security Council, destructive sanctions and/or military action against Iran seem imminent. In this context, any U.S. policy that paves the way for the use of nuclear weapons is particular cause for alarm. We urge Iranian, U.S. and international media to take note of this alarming development in official U.S. policy and to meet their responsibilities in revealing its dire implications.Campaign Iran#1 - SIGN THE INTERNATIONAL PETITION at http://www.stopwaroniran.org/#2

With Iran's civilian nuclear program having been singled out for referral to the United Nations Security Council, destructive sanctions and/or military action against Iran seem imminent. In this context, any U.S. policy that paves the way for the use of nuclear weapons is particular cause for alarm. Present U.S. war strategy clearly states its preparedness to make pre-emptive 'first strikes' using either conventional or 'tactical' nuclear weapons or both.
The use of nuclear weapons would mean that the U.S. will have crossed a red-line in which nuclear weapons would be used aggressively against a non-nuclear nation. I urge you to take note of this alarming development in official U.S. policy and to meet your responsibilities to the electorate in revealing its dire implications.
The United Kingdom is not at war with Iran. Please ensure that Premier Blair and his cabinet do not cooperate in any way with the U.S. should it decide to attack Iran. The use of United Kingdom bases, radar and other facilities should be denied the U.S. Should Her Majesty's Government fail to do so it will have become accomplice to another international war-crime.
I appeal to you to do everything you can to ensure that such an unacceptable state of affairs will not be allowed to develop.
