The Citizen's Veto

We declare a citizen's veto of nuclear first strikes, and proscribe the harshest punishment for anyone foolish enough to launch a nuclear first strike regardless of their excuse. We, like all people of good sense and moral character, find the idea of launching a nuclear first strike, even using so called "tactical" nuclear weapons, to be abborhent in the extreme and absolutely will not stand by if such action is taken.

We hereby declare our veto of any government policy that involves a nuclear first strike. Any attempted or actual nuclear first strikes undertaken by our government will be met with the most severe resistance, and all those responsible will stand trial for crimes against humanity.

Arguments about the morality of second strikes are for a different time and place. For now, we must pull together and, with one resounding voice, decalre "No! Not on our watch!"
