(July 2015) Retired four-star U.S. Air Force general Lee Butler was commander of U.S. nuclear forces between 1991 and 1994 (Google: Lee Butler hair-trigger). Now age 75, Butler has long since denounced nuclear weapons as enormously dangerous, outrageously immoral, and without strategic value for any government. He believes total elimination of nuclear weapons is required, and our first responsibility as human beings is to? life. Should our country stand for death?
