Flotte USA avec 1.000 missiles en Méditerranée

Manlio Dinucci


Le porte-avions USA Harry S. Truman, parti de la plus grande base navale du monde à Norfolk en Virginie, est entré en Méditerranée avec son groupe d’attaque.

  Celui-ci est composé du croiseur lance-missiles Normandy et des torpilleurs lance-missiles Arleigh Burke, Bulkeley, Forrest Sherman et Farragut, plus sous peu deux autres, le Jason Dunham et The Sullivans. Est rattachée au groupe d’attaque du Truman la frégate allemande Hessen. 

  
La flotte, avec plus de 8.000 militaires à bord, a une énorme puissance de feu. Le Truman - super-porte-avions long de plus de 300 mètres, doté de deux réacteurs nucléaires- peut lancer à l’attaque, par vagues successives, 90 chasseurs et hélicoptères. Son groupe d’attaque, intégré par 4 chasseurs torpilleurs déjà en Méditerranée et par plusieurs sous-marins, peut lancer plus de 1.000 missiles de croisière. 

  Ainsi se trouvent notablement potentialisées les Forces navales USA pour l’Europe et l’Afrique, dont le quartier général est à Naples-Capodichino et la base de la Sixième Flotte à Gaeta, sous les ordres du même amiral (actuellement James Foggo) qui commande la Force Conjointe Alliée à Lago Patria (Naples).

  Ceci participe de la montée en puissance générale des forces étasuniennes en Europe, sous les ordres du même général (actuellement Curtis Scaparrotti) qui recouvre la charge de Commandant Suprême Allié en Europe. 

  
Dans une audition au Congrès, Scaparrotti explique la raison de cette montée en puissance. Ce qu’il présente est un véritable scénario de guerre : il accuse la Russie de mener “une campagne de déstabilisation pour modifier l’ordre international, broyer l’Otan et miner le leadership USA dans le monde entier”.  En Europe, après “l’annexion illégale de la Crimée par la Russie et sa déstabilisation de l’Ukraine orientale”, les États-Unis, qui déploient plus de 60.000 militaires dans des pays européens de l’OTAN/NATO, ont renforcé ce déploiement par une brigade blindée et une brigade aérienne de combat, et ont constitué des dépôts pré-positionnés d’armements pour l’envoi d’autres brigades blindées. Ils ont en même temps redoublé le déploiement de leurs navires de guerre en Mer Noire.

  Pour accroître leurs forces en Europe les États-Unis ont dépensé en cinq années plus de 16 milliards de dollars, en poussant simultanément leurs alliés européens à augmenter leur propre dépense militaire de 46 milliards de dollars en trois ans pour renforcer le déploiement 
OTAN/NATO contre la Russie.  

  Ceci entre dans la stratégie lancée par Washington en 2014 avec le putsch de Place Maïdan et l’attaque successive contre les Russes d’Ukraine : faire de l’Europe la première ligne d’une nouvelle guerre froide pour renforcer l’influence étasunienne sur les alliés et faire obstacle à la coopération eurasiatique.

  Les ministres des Affaires étrangères de l’
OTAN/NATO ont réaffirmé le 27 avril leur consensus, en préparant une extension ultérieure de l’OTAN/NATO à l’Est contre la Russie par l’entrée de Bosnie-Herzégovine, Macédoine, Géorgie et Ukraine.

  
Cette stratégie requiert une préparation adéquate de l’opinion publique. À cet effet Scaparrotti accuse la Russie d’”utiliser la provocation politique, diffuser la désinformation et miner les institutions démocratiques” y compris en Italie. Il annonce ensuite que “les USA et l’
OTAN/NATO combattent la désinformation russe avec une information véridique et transparente”. Dans leur sillage la Commission européenne annonce une série de mesures contre les fake news, en accusant la Russie d’utiliser “la désinformation dans sa stratégie de guerre”.

  On peut s’attendre à ce que l’
OTAN/NATO et l’UE censurent ce qui nous publions ici en décrétant que la flotte USA en Méditerranée est une fake news diffusée par la Russie dans sa “stratégie de guerre”.

L’arte della guerra

Flotta USA con 1000 missili nel Mediterraneo

Manlio Dinucci


La portaerei USA Harry S. Truman, salpata dalla più grande base navale del mondo a Norfolk in Virginia, è entrata  nel Mediterraneo con il suo gruppo d’attacco. Esso è composto dall’incrociatore lanciamissili Normandy e dai cacciatorpediniere lanciamissili Arleigh Burke, Bulkeley, Forrest Sherman e Farragut, più tra poco altri due, il Jason Dunham e The Sullivans. È aggregata al gruppo d’attacco della Truman la fregata tedesca Hessen. La flotta, con a bordo oltre 8.000 uomini, ha una enorme potenza di fuoco. La Truman – superportarei lunga oltre 300 metri, dotata di due reattori nucleari – può lanciare all’attacco, a ondate successive, 90 caccia ed elicotteri. Il suo gruppo d’attacco, integrato da 4 cacciatorpediniere già nel Mediterraneo e da alcuni sottomarini, può lanciare oltre 1.000 missili da crociera.

Vengono così notevolmente potenziate le Forze navali USA per l’Europa e l’Africa, con quartier generale a Napoli-Capodichino e base della Sesta Flotta a Gaeta, agli ordini dello stesso ammiraglio (attualmente James Foggo) che comanda la Forza Congiunta Alleata a Lago Patria.

Ciò rientra nel potenziamento complessivo delle forze statunitensi in  Europa, agli ordini dello stesso generale (attualmente Curtis Scaparrotti) che ricopre la carica di Comandante Supremo Alleato in Europa. In una audizione al Congresso, Scaparrotti spiega il perché di tale potenziamento. Quello che presenta è un vero e proprio scenario di guerra: egli accusa la Russia di condurre «una campagna di destabilizzazione per cambiare l’ordine internazionale, frantumare la NATO e minare la leadership USA in tutto il mondo».

In Europa, dopo «l’annessione illegale della Crimea da parte della Russia e la sua destabilizzazione dell’Ucraina orientale», gli Stati uniti, che schierano oltre 60.000 militari in paesi europei della NATO, hanno rafforzato tale schieramento con una brigata corazzata e una brigata aerea da combattimento, e costituito depositi preposizionati di armamenti per l’invio di altre brigate corazzate. Hanno allo stesso tempo raddoppiato lo spiegamento delle loro navi da guerra nel Mar Nero.

Per accrescere le loro forze in Europa gli Stati uniti hanno speso in cinque anni oltre 16 miliardi di dollari, spingendo allo stesso tempo gli alleati europei ad accrescere la propria spesa militare di 46 miliardi di dollari in tre anni per rafforzare lo schieramento NATO contro la Russia.

Ciò rientra nella strategia avviata da Washington nel 2014 con il putsch di piazza Maidan e il conseguente attacco ai russi di Ucraina: fare dell’Europa la prima linea di una nuova guerra fredda per rafforzare l’influenza statunitense sugli alleati e ostacolare la cooperazione eurasiatica. I ministri degli esteri della NATO hanno riaffermato il 27 aprile il loro consenso, preparando una ulteriore espansione della NATO ad Est contro la Russia attraverso l’ingresso di Bosnia-Erzegovina, Macedonia, Georgia e Ucraina.

Tale strategia richiede una adeguata preparazione dell’opinione pubblica. A tal fine Scaparrotti accusa la Russia di «usare la provocazione politica, diffondere la disinformazione e minare le istituzioni democratiche» anche in Italia. Annuncia quindi che «gli USA e la NATO contrastano la disinformazione russa con una informazione veritiera e trasparente». Sulla loro scia la Commissione europea annuncia una serie di misure contro le fake news, accusando  la Russia di usare «la disinformazione nella sua strategia di guerra».

C’è da aspettarsi che NATO e UE censurino quanto qui pubblicato, decretando che quella della flotta USA nel Mediterraneo è una fake news diffusa dalla Russia nella sua «strategia di guerra».

The Period of American Dominance Has Passed


The Period of American Dominance Has Passed
The Period of American Dominance Has Passed
Russian Missile Tech has Made America’s Trillion Dollar Navy Obsolete
Dmitry Orlov
For the past 500 years European nations—Portugal, the Netherlands, Spain, Britain, France and, briefly, Germany—were able to plunder much of the planet by projecting their naval power overseas. Since much of the world’s population lives along the coasts, and much of it trades over water, armed ships that arrived suddenly out of nowhere were able to put local populations at their mercy.
The armadas could plunder, impose tribute, punish the disobedient, and then use that plunder and tribute to build more ships, enlarging the scope of their naval empires. This allowed a small region with few natural resources and few native advantages beyond extreme orneriness and a wealth of communicable diseases to dominate the globe for half a millennium.
The ultimate inheritor of this naval imperial project is the United States, which, with the new addition of air power, and with its large aircraft carrier fleet and huge network of military bases throughout the planet, is supposedly able to impose Pax Americana on the entire world. Or, rather, was able to do so—during the brief period between the collapse of the USSR and the emergence of Russia and China as new global powers and their development of new anti-ship and antiaircraft technologies. But now this imperial project is at an end.
Prior to the Soviet collapse, the US military generally did not dare to directly threaten those countries to which the USSR had extended its protection. Nevertheless, by using its naval power to dominate the sea lanes that carried crude oil, and by insisting that oil be traded in US dollars, it was able to live beyond its means by issuing dollar-denominated debt instruments and forcing countries around the world to invest in them. It imported whatever it wanted using borrowed money while exporting inflation, expropriating the savings of people across the world. In the process, the US has accumulated absolutely stunning levels of national debt—beyond anything seen before in either absolute or relative terms. When this debt bomb finally explodes, it will spread economic devastation far beyond US borders. And it will explode, once the petrodollar wealth pump, imposed on the world through American naval and air superiority, stops working.
New missile technology has made a naval empire cheap to defeat. Previously, to fight a naval battle, one had to have ships that outmatched those of the enemy in their speed and artillery power. The Spanish Armada was sunk by the British armada. More recently, this meant that only those countries whose industrial might matched that of the United States could ever dream of opposing it militarily. But this has now changed: Russia’s new missiles can be launched from thousands of kilometers away, are unstoppable, and it takes just one to sink a destroyer and just two to sink an aircraft carrier. The American armada can now be sunk without having an armada of one’s own. The relative sizes of American and Russian economies or defense budgets are irrelevant: the Russians can build more hypersonic missiles much more quickly and cheaply than the Americans would be able to build more aircraft carriers.  
Equally significant is the development of new Russian air defense capabilities: the S-300 and S-400 systems, which can essentially seal off a country’s airspace. Wherever these systems are deployed, such as in Syria, US forces are now forced to stay out of their range. With its naval and air superiority rapidly evaporating, all that the US can fall back on militarily is the use of large expeditionary forces—an option that is politically unpalatable and has proven to be ineffective in Iraq and Afghanistan. There is also the nuclear option, and while its nuclear arsenal is not likely to be neutralized any time soon, nuclear weapons are only useful as deterrents. Their special value is in preventing wars from escalating beyond a certain point, but that point lies beyond the elimination of their global naval and air dominance. Nuclear weapons are much worse than useless in augmenting one’s aggressive behavior against a nuclear-armed opponent; invariably, it would be a suicidal move. What the US now faces is essentially a financial problem of unrepayable debt and a failing wealth pump, and it should be a stunningly obvious point that setting off nuclear explosions anywhere in the world would not fix the problems of an empire that is going broke.
Events that signal vast, epochal changes in the world often appear minor when viewed in isolation. Julius Caesar’s crossing of the Rubicon was just one river crossing; Soviet and American troops meeting and fraternizing at the Elbe was, relatively speaking, a minor event—nowhere near the scale of the siege of Leningrad, the battle of Stalingrad or the fall of Berlin. Yet they signaled a tectonic shift in the historical landscape. And perhaps we have just witnessed something similar with the recent pathetically tiny Battle of East Gouta in Syria, where the US used a make-believe chemical weapons incident as a pretense to launch an equally make-believe attack on some airfields and buildings in Syria. The US foreign policy establishment wanted to show that it still matters and has a role to play, but what really happened was that US naval and air power were demonstrated to be almost entirely beside the point.
Of course, all of this is terrible news to the US military and foreign policy establishments, as well as to the many US Congressmen in whose districts military contractors operate or military bases are situated. Obviously, this is also bad news for the defense contractors, for personnel at the military bases, and for many others as well. It is also simply awful news economically, since defense spending is about the only effective means of economic stimulus of which the US government is politically capable.
Obama’s “shovel-ready jobs,” if you recall, did nothing to forestall the dramatic slide in the labor participation rate, which is a euphemism for the inverse of the real unemployment rate. There is also the wonderful plan to throw lots of money at Elon Musk’s SpaceX (while continuing to buy vitally important rocket engines from the Russians—who are currently discussing blocking their export to the US in retaliation for more US sanctions). In short, take away the defense stimulus, and the US economy will make a loud popping sound followed by a gradually diminishing hissing noise.
Needless to say, all those involved will do their best to deny or hide for as long as possible the fact that the US foreign policy and defense establishments have now been neutralized. My prediction is that America’s naval and air empire will not fail because it will be defeated militarily, nor will it be dismantled once the news sinks in that it is useless; instead, it will be forced to curtail its operations due to lack of funds. There may still be a few loud bangs before it gives up, but mostly what we will hear is a whole lot of whimpering. That’s how the USSR went; that’s how the USA will go too.

No Attack, No Victims, No Chem Weapons: Douma Witnesses Speak at OPCW Briefing at The Hague


Witnesses of the alleged chemical attack in Douma, including 11-year-old Hassan Diab and hospital staff, told reporters at The Hague that the White Helmets video used as a pretext for a US-led strike on Syria was, in fact, staged.
“We were at the basement and we heard people shouting that we needed to go to a hospital. We went through a tunnel. At the hospital they started pouring cold water on me,” the boy told the press conference, gathered by Russia’s mission at the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in The Hague.

Hassan was among the “victims” seen being washed by water hoses in a video released by the controversial White Helmets group on April 7. The boy and his family later spoke to the media and revealed that Hassan was hurried to the scene by men who claimed that a chemical attack had taken place. They started pouring cold water on the boy and others, filming the frightened children.

“There were people unknown to us who were filming the emergency care, they were filming the chaos taking place inside, and were filming people being doused with water. The instruments they used to douse them with water were originally used to clean the floors actually,” Ahmad Kashoi, an administrator of the emergency ward, recalled. “That happened for about an hour, we provided help to them and sent them home. No one has died. No one suffered from chemical exposure.”
Halil al-Jaish, a resuscitator who tended to people at the Douma hospital that day, told the press conference that some of the patients had indeed experienced respiratory problems. The symptoms, however, were caused by heavy dust, which engulfed the area due to recent airstrikes, and no one showed any signs of chemical warfare poisoning, al-Jaish said.

The hospital received people who suffered from smoke and dust asphyxiation on the day of the alleged attack, Muwaffak Nasrim, a paramedic who was working in emergency care, said. The panic seen in footage provided by the White Helmets was caused mainly by people shouting about the alleged use of chemical weapons, Nasrim, who witnessed the chaotic scenes, added. No patients, however, displayed symptoms of chemical weapons exposure, he said.

Ahmad Saur, an emergency paramedic with the Syrian Red Crescent, said that the ward he was working at did not receive any patients exposed to chemical weapons on the day of the alleged incident or after it. All the patients needed either general medical care or help with injuries, he said. Saur told journalists he came to speak at The Hague independently of the Red Crescent, and that he was testifying freely and without any pressure.

One reporter asked what would happen to the eyewitnesses and whether they would “stay in Europe to testify.”

“We’re going back home, and see no problem with that. The situation is a lot better now. We’re Douma residents, like many others,” Hassan Ayoun, a doctor with the emergency department, said.

Six of the Douma witnesses brought to The Hague have already been interviewed by the OPCW technical experts, Russia’s permanent representative to the OPCW, Aleksandr Shulgin, said.

“The others were ready too, but the experts are sticking to their own guidelines. They’ve picked six people, talked to them, and said they were 'completely satisfied' with their account and did not have any further questions,”Shulgin revealed. He added that the allegations by “certain Western countries” ahead of the briefing that Moscow and Damascus were seeking to “hide” the witnesses from the OPCW experts did not hold water.
The alleged chemical incident was only supported by the White Helmets’ video and social media reports from militant-linked groups, but the US, the UK and France judged they had enough evidence that it actually took place and launched a series of punitive strikes against Syria on April 14. The US and its allies accused Syrian President Bashar Assad of carrying out the “attack,” without providing any proof of their claim. Notably, the strike came hours before the OPCW fact-finding team was set to arrive in Douma to determine whether chemical weapons had been used there.

PT -- GUERRA NUCLEAR: 8.6 As nano-armas: potenciais detonadoras da guerra nuclear

MANLIO DINUCCI

“Copyright Zambon Editore”


GUERRA NUCLEAR
O DIA ANTERIOR
De Hiroshima até hoje:
Quem e como nos conduzem à catástrofe



8.6  As nano-armas: potenciais detonadoras da guerra nuclear

Depois das armas nucleares da primeira e segunda geração (atómicas e de hidrogénio)e de terceira geração (bombas de neutrões), começou-se a fabricar as armas da quarta geração, sempre mais pequenas, de menor potência mas mais eficientes. A par e passo prevalece a ideia que, em determinadas situações, se pode fazer um uso limitado sem com isso desencadear uma guerra nuclear de grandes proporções. Um bom exemplo, é o relatório publicado pelo Defense Science Board, a comissão dos consultores do Pentágono em Dezembro de 2016,  sobre questões técnicas e científicas. Considera que os EUA devem ter «uma organização nuclear mais flexível que possa tornar possível, se for necessária, uma oposição nuclear rápida, calibrada para um uso limitado, se outras opções não-nucleares ou nucleares se demonstrarem inadequadas». Para tal fim – sublinha o Defense Science Board – são necessárias armas nucleares de «menor potência». A«opção nuclear rápida e calibrada» poderia ser estabelecida não só com ogivas de «potência menor» transportadas por mísseis ou bombardeiros, mas também com mini-engenhos nucleares feitos explodir directamente, no interior do território inimigo.Que é possível reduzir substancialmente engenhos de fissão, é provado pelo facto de que, durante a Guerra Fria, o Exército Americano distribui na Europa, ogivas nucleares de peso e dimensões reduzidas, com potências variáveis de menos de um quiloton a alguns megaton. Entre estas, a W-54 Davy Crocket, uma ogiva nuclear oval com 23 kgs de peso e dimensões de 27 x 40 cm, com uma potência equivalente a 10-20 toneladas de TNT, cuja primeira explosão experimental é efectuada em 1962, no Polígono de Nevada.

Apesar da sua potência fraca, em comparação com as ogivas nucleares transportadas por mísseis ou bombardeiros, estas pequenas armas nucleares são, de longe, mais perigosas do que as armas terrestres convencionais, porque o seu uso tornaria vastas áreas do território europeu, em áreas radioactivas. Podem ser empregadas quer como projécteis de artilharia, como ogivas de mísseis de curto alcance, quer como munições portáteis de demolição atómica. Em Itália, durante a Guerra Fria, foram instaladas pelo Exército americano (segundo estimativas aproximadas) 120 engenhos destes como ogivas de mísseis de curto alcance (120-140 km), 55 como projécteis de artilharia, 22 como munições de demolição atómica. Comandos das forças especiais americanas são treinados para se infiltrarem ou serem lançados de paraquedas no território inimigo, carregando munições de demolição atómica para fazer detonar, não só perto de instalações militares, mas também em zonas industriais e em cidades. 

Ogivas nucleares miniaturizadas, provavelmente são construídas também na União Soviética, sempre durante a Guerra Fria. Segundo algumas testemunhas, na situação caótica criada depois da desagregação da URSS, perde-se o rasto de grande parte destes engenhos. Em 1997, o general russo Aleksander Lebed ,Basedo nos resultados de um inquérito efectuado quando era conselheiro da Segurança Nacional, do Presidente Yeltsin, declara numa entrevista realizada em 7 de Setembro pela CBS:« Num número estimado de 250 bombas deste tipo, mais de 100 não estão sob o controlo das Forças Armadas russas. Não se sabe onde estão, se foram destruídas ou conservadas, se foram vendidas ou roubadas». A seguir, no dia 1 de Outubro de 1997, numa audição perante uma comissão do Congresso americano, ele especifica que se trata de bombas nucleares de 60 x 40 x 20 cm, que podem ser transportadas e detonadas por uma pessoa.

Os progressos tecnológicos realizados durante o meio século seguinte ao fabrico dos primeiros engenhos nucleares miniaturizados, como a W-54 Davy Crocket, permitem construir ogivas nucleares, de longe, mais pequenas e potentes.

Os maiores desenvolvimentos nesse campo destacam-se com as aplicações militares da nanotecnologia, que consiste em manipular a matéria ao nível de simples átomos. É algo que ainda se faz limitadamente, mas que, de futuro, poderá revolucionar os processos industriais e conduzir a aplicações que, neste momento, ainda são impensáveis, na Medicina e noutros campos. Para tal, nos países tecnologicamente mais avançados, investem-se cada vez mais, recursos na pesquisa da nanotecnologia. Sobre essas pesquisas, concentram-se  os laboratórios militares e as indústrias bélicas, que utilizam ao mesmo tempo, os resultados das pesquisas civis para aplicações militares. A nanotecnologia já é empregada para produzir novos explosivos químicos, com uma potência dez vezes superior à dos convencionais, e também no fabrico de materiais mais resistentes e ligeiros para uso bélico.

No futuro a nanotecnologia poderá tornar possível a produção de nano-armas com componentes de dimensões inferiores a cem nanómetros. Um Nanómetro (nm) é a unidade de medida de comprimento correspondente a um milionésimo de milímetro. Para fazer-se ideia de tais dimensões, basta pensar que um cabelo têm uma espessura de 70.000 nm.

«Acredito que as mais terríveis nano-armas fabricadas dentro em pouco, sejam as mini-nukes». Escreve o físico Louis Del Monte, executivo da IBM e da Honeywell no campo da micro electrónica – Se bem que a tecnologia específica seja mantida secreta, grande parte da ciência que está na base dos mini-nukes é de domínio público. Por exemplo, um lazer de alta potência podia disparar uma pequena explosão de fusão nuclear, usando uma mistura de trítio e deutério. Com a nanotecnologia poder-se-ia realizar laser e materiais de fusão extremamente pequenos, para construir uma bomba que entraria facilmente no bolso de um casaco. A potência dessa bomba estaria compreendida entre uma a cem toneladas de explosivos convencionais».

Del Monte acredita que os mini-nukes constituiriam «uma categoria de armas completamente nova» e que, pelas suas características (difíceis de individualizar, grande potência, fallout relativamente reduzido), «são provavelmente aquelas que possam tornar reais o uso deste tipo de armas nucleares na guerra». Os países em fase mais avançada na pesquisa dos mini-nukes e de outras nano-armas são os EUA, a Rússia, a China, Israel e a Alemanha. Del Monte deduz «visto que os EUA iniciaram a pesquisa em 2002, é provável que já existam mini-nukes».

É possível também que já esteja a realizar uma «categoria inteiramente nova», a das nano-armas. As pesquisas e os testes eventualmente efectuados são ‘top secret’. Mas, embora até agora não haja provas, existem sérios indícios a tal respeito: por exemplo, as mortes misteriosas provocadas, em 2006, pelos ataques israelitas em Gaza e no Líbano. Os testemunhos dos médicos são unânimes: em dezenas de anos de trabalho em hospitais, nunca viram nada semelhante às condições em que foram encontradas muitas das vítimas (quase todas civis). Corpos sem feridas externas, com o fígado e os ossos carbonizados. Corpos intactos que, no interior, apresentavam milhares de finíssimos cortes, mas nos quais não se encontrava gravilha (lascas de materiais). Braços e pernas atingidos por fragmentos não visíveis aos raios X, que desvitalizam os tecidos e coagulam o sangue, provocando depois da amputação, uma necrose rápida que se estende ao resto do corpo. A hipótese mais fiável é que essas mortes foram provocadas por armas de um novo tipo». 

No mesmo ano de 2006,é dada a notícia de que «Israel está a usar a nanotecnologia para criar um robot não maior que um vespão, capaz de perseguir, fotografar e matar os seus alvos»  O Vice-Primeiro Ministro Shimon Peres (condecorado em 1994 com o Prémio Nobel da Paz «pelos seus esforços para criar a Paz no Médio Oriente») declara: «A guerra no Líbano demonstrou que temos necessidade de armas ainda mais pequenas. Não é lógico enviar um avião cujo custo é 100 milhões de dólares contra um terrorista suicida. Para isto, estamos a criar armas futurísticas»

Estão em fase de pesquisa e desenvolvimento nos EUA, em Israel   e noutros países, mini-drones com a forma e dimensões de mosquitos, utilizáveis não só como drones espias capazes de causar sons e imagens, mas também como drones-assassinos capazes de injectar veneno. Propõem-se cenários de guerra que hoje parecem de ficção científica: segundo as hipóteses científicas de Del Monte, poderiam ser realizados nano robots que, penetrando como grandes enxames de vespas no país inimigo, atacariam instalações militares e industriais, provocando envenenamentos em massa e epidemias.

Os mini-nukes e os nano-robots de ataque não substituem, mas integram as armas nucleares, as quais serão sempre, cada vez mais miniaturizadas e eficazes. Se um país tecnologicamente superior, dotado, quer de armas nucleares, quer de nano-armas, atacasse com estas últimas, um país tecnologicamente inferior, mas na posse de armas nucleares se bem que menos avançadas, lançaria uma represália nuclear e seria, por sua vez, atacado com armas nucleares. Portanto, as nano-armas fariam de detonadores da guerra nuclear. Não é um cenário de ficção científica, mas a realidade que está a preparar o uso, cada vez mais frequente, da ciência para fins militares.

North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un has expressed his wish to end the history of confrontation on the Korean Peninsula, a spokesman of South Korea's President Moon Jae-In said Friday.
According to a joint statement, issued after the talks between the two leaders, both Asian nations have agreed to hold talks with the US and China to replace the current ceasefire regime with a peace treaty.
The two countries have agreed to stop all hostile acts toward each other and to transform demilitarized zone into a peace zone, the declaration says.
"South and North Korea reaffirmed the Non-Aggression Agreement that precludes the use of force in any form against each other, and agreed to strictly adhere to this Agreement," the document says.
The parties have also agreed to create a maritime peace zone around the Northern Limit Line in the Yellow Sea (West Sea) to prevent clashes and guarantee safety for fishermen.
The statement says further that the two leaders have agreed to gradually reduce arms in order to build trust and reduce military tensions in the region, adding that the country's generals will hold a meeting in May to resolve a number of military issues.
"The two sides agreed to hold frequent meetings between military authorities, including the Defense Ministers Meeting, in order to immediately discuss and solve military issues that arise between them. In this regard, the two sides agreed to first convene military talks at the rank of general in May," the document said.
The two Koreas have expressed their wish to improve relations, striving for prosperity and peaceful reunification.
"South and North Korea will reconnect the blood relations of the people and bring forward the future of co-prosperity and unification led by Koreans by facilitating comprehensive and groundbreaking advancement in inter-Korean relation," the document says.
The improvement of relations is "the prevalent desire of the whole nation," the parties added.
Kim Jong-un Promises Moon Jae-in to End Missile Tests
The issues of ridding the Korean Peninsula of nuclear weapons, building peace and improving relations between North and South Korea were on the agenda of their summit on Friday morning, Im Jong-seok confirmed to reporters.
"Both leaders at these talks held a sincere dialogue about the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, building a lasting peace and directions for the development of relations between the South and the North," the spokesman said.
North Korea’s leader suggested holding regular summits during a meeting with South’s President Moon Jae-in, Im Jong-seok told reporters.
“Let us meet more often. Let us build a better world,” Im Jong-seok quoted Kim as saying at a briefing after the first round of talks ended in the border village of Panmunjom
According to Seoul, Kim told Moon that Pyongyang "won't interrupt your early morning sleep anymore," referring to missile tests.
Kim's promise was then confirmed by a joint statement issued upon the end of the talks that said, the two Koreas would take measures to support international efforts aimed at denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
"South and North Korea confirmed the common goal of realizing, through complete denuclearization, a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula. South and North Korea shared the view that the measures being initiated by North Korea are very meaningful and crucial for the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and agreed to carry out their respective roles and responsibilities in this regard," the document added.
Moon, in his turn, offered, among other things, to link the railroads of the two countries and promised to visit the North in autumn.
"President Moon Jae-in agreed to visit Pyongyang this fall," the document says.
The two leaders also exchanged invitations to each other's capital cities, Im Jong-seok said, telling that Moon Jae-In expressed his interest in visiting North Korea's holy mountain Paektu.
The summit is the third such encounter since the end of the 1950-1953 Korean War. It is being held on the southern side of the demilitarized zone but President Moon briefly stepped over onto the northern soil when the two met on Friday morning.
