Don't desecrate World Peace Day with ICBM Launch!!!

Update (9/16/2011): The US Air Force has just announced that this test will not take place on the International Day of Peace!!!  The message got through! They have not yet announced a new date for the test.

In the meantime, please consider sending a message opposing continued reliance on the theory of nuclear deterrence


In a post at the Nuclear Abolitionist I've urged people to send messages to President Obama urging him to cancel the scheduled test launch of a nuclear warhead-capable intercontinental ballistic missile (Minuteman III) on September 21st, the International Day of Peace.

We still have roughly FIVE days left to convince the President that this is just another bad idea that will only serve to counter efforts toward non-proliferation of nuclear weapons and global disarmament.
