I am saddened to read that the NFZ ordinance might soon be repealed. The ordinance imposes no harm, and it opens discussions between a few nuclear-armed countries and Olympia. Those discussions might not occur without the ordinance. Olympia continues to do business with corporations that are invested in nuclear despite the ordinance. The port of Olympia continues to accept US military shipments despite the ordinance. The bombing of Japan helped China grow to become one of the most successful communist nations and enabled Indonesia to become a muslim haven despite the ordinance. Meanwhile the US economy is declining and the attitude towards nuclear weapons is softening. Why? What are the implications of repealing the NFZ? How can this be good? I challenge supporters of repealing the NFZ to show the statistics that demonstrate why the repeal is financially or statistically warranted.
