Summary
Mel Hurtig has five best-sellers to his credit but this is easily his most important book. Readers will be shocked to learn how both the American and Canadian governments are intentionally misleading their citizens about the Pentagon's unprecedented plans to weaponize space; about the huge new Russian and Chinese nuclear missile buildup resulting from U.S. Star Wars plans; about the destruction of vitally important, long-standing arms control agreements; and about the rapidly increasing danger of a nuclear apocalypse.?Among the topics covered are why the so-called U.S. missile defencesystem is really about establishing a U.S. first-strike-from-space capability; why both Paul Martins government and Stephen Harper's Conservatives want to join in George W. Bushs dangerous program; how numerous official U.S. documents reveal their plans to dominate space and place deadly lasers and nuclear weapons in space; how todays nuclear weapons are up to 350 times more powerful than the bombs that devastated Hiroshima and Nagasaki; how the missile defence plans will mean the placement of missiles on Canadian soil making Canada much less secure.?Hurtig provides remarkable and often devastating new information that will shock, anger, and appall readers. This is a book that every Canadian must read before Ottawa becomes an active partner in a tragic and potentially cataclysmic blunder
