Nuclear Solitaire


| August 25, 2003


No longer restricted to nationalistic flexing of muscles, now everyone can play nuclear solitaire on the Greenpeace web site, with a deck of cards featuring 'most wanted' world leaders who are undermining the Nuclear Non-Proliferations Treaty (NPT). The ace of spades reads, 'George W. Bush -- President, United States of America. Possessor of approximately 10,600 nuclear weapons inside the NPT.' Greenpeace presented the decks of cards to the delegates of the 2003 NPT preparatory conference in Geneva in an effort to focus attention on a subject that has, for the most part, drifted out of the public spot light. While the world looks the other way, this game of nuclear solitaire is, as Greenpeace says, 'a great way for world leaders to pass the time while the Nuclear Non-Proliferations Treaty Collapses.'
