Complicit: The countries, companies and think tanks that support the deadly nuclear arms trade via Beyond Nuclear International (ICAN)

A new report from ICAN — Complicit: 2020 Global Nuclear Weapons spending — names names and produces some horrifying spending numbers, made all the more immoral by the desperate needs around the world due to the COVID-19 pandemic, along with the ever worsening conditions brought on by the climate crisis.

As the report notes, “In 2020, during the worst global pandemic in a century, nine nuclear-armed states spent $72.6 billion on their nuclear weapons, more than $137,000 per minute, an inflation adjusted increase of $1.4 billion from last year.”

It goes on to ask the obvious question: Why? The answer lies in the profits to be made by the world’s nuclear weapons companies, not to mention the funding flowing to a few think tanks, some of which have missions that should make taking this money unacceptable. “Not only does this report reveal the massive spending on nuclear weapons during the worst global pandemic in a century, it also shines a light on the shadowy connection between the private companies building nuclear weapons, lobbyists and think tanks,” wrote ICAN’s Susi Snyder in an email to launch the report.

She also narrates this short video below that explains the findings.


The executive summary of the report then calls out the names of the countries, companies and think tanks complicit in effectively planning the world’s destruction.

    Also a thing to mention is that an online business administration diploma is designed for college students to be able to without problems proceed to bachelor degree education. The 90 credit education meets the lower bachelor education requirements when you earn the associate of arts in BA online, you should have access to the latest technologies in such a field. Some reasons why students have to get their associate degree in business is because they are interested in this area and want to get the general instruction necessary before jumping in to a bachelor college diploma program. Many thanks for the tips you actually provide inside your blog.
