|Legendary anti-nuclear activist Helen Caldicott|
We're in that no-man's-land, smack in the middle of the dog days of August between Hiroshima Day and Nagasaki day, waiting for the next bomb to drop. During the first hour of the first show, Iranian journalist Kourosh Ziabari will correct some common misconceptions about Iran, which is being targeted in Israel's attempt to drag the US into World War III. Iran is a signatory in good standing to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, has no nuclear weapons or weapons program according to the CIA, and is leading the effort to ban ALL nuclear weapons from the Middle East. Israel, on the other hand, has used the Non-Proliferation Treaty for toilet paper, holds 400 nukes, and is targeting all the capitals of the Middle East and Europe with its nuclear weapons. Additionally, Israel has allegedly used nuclear weapons against the US at least three times: In the Beirut Marine barracks bombing of 1983, the nuclear-assisted demolition of the Twin Towers on 9/11, and against Indonesia in the Bali hotel bombing of 2002. Don't be surprised if they nuke Chicago and try to blame it on Iran.
2nd hour: Jerry Mazza, whose Hiroshima Day poem is published below.

I stand before
Shinran Shonin, founder Jodo
Sect of Buddhism, bronze
surviving atom blast,
the center of detonation,
now of peace and hope
by people of Hiroshima
people New York Buddhist Church,
back in 1955,
not far away from Pupin Hall,
Project, Nevis cyclotron’s
place, Oppenheimer living
poet three blocks away for years,
mad uranium stashed downtown,
Army Corps of Engineers,
Broadway, Chambers Street,
19 hundred 46
nuclear weapons atomic reactors
per Oak Ridge Weapons Lab,
can I say oh Monk of Bronze,
age of heart more lasting as you
the one way to salvation?
arrived but have the rest of us
again as death or life?
cross myself before your journey
August sunlight, brighter that day
thousands of suns blinded to fate
resurrected three days later
I in my mere seventh year
hardly imagine cheers and jeers
celebration and victory.
