CND - Hypocrites

Initially discovered through Wizbang!
The Campaign For Nuclear Disarmament is a very hypocritical organization. From their website:

Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament
CND campaigns non-violently to rid the world of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction and to create genuine security for future generations.

So that means they are opposed to every country who either has nuclear weaponry, or countries who are obviously developing nuclear weaponry. Of course protesting America having nuclear weapons is one thing, but when you protest a campaign by a nation with high moral standards against a fledgling nation who is in the process of nuclear armament
19 March: No More Bush Wars - End the Occupation of IraqAs pressure builds up
against Iran, now is the time to say No to further pre-emptive wars in which
nuclear weapons may be used. National demonstration 19 March 2005, 12 noon
Speakers Corner Hyde Park, London.
Oh, the fact that we haven't physically attacked Iran to date doesn't mean anything, the fact that Bush's administration has stated it will not attack Iran doesn't mean anything. But their hypocrisy doesn't stop there. One of their campaigns apparently has attacked the America v Iraq war (which was won successfully). The stabilization period is currently under way and so far seems to be working. Not only that, but on the same page, they want a body count (the sick bastards).

Count the casualties campaign

We urge you to email Jack Straw to ask the
government to commission a comprehensive, independent inquiry to determine how
many Iraqis have died or been injured since the 2003 invasion. You can do so by
going to:

I am still not sure why they aren't protesting Iran's possible nuclear armament strategy instead of protesting Bush's information campaign. After all, according to their own website:
CND supports the establishment of a nuclear weapon free zone in the Middle East,
as called for in UN Security Council Resolution 687. The presence of nuclear
weapons in this region undermines the Palestine-Israel peace process, and
Israel’s secretive possession of nuclear weapons provides a convenient excuse
for other countries in the region to pursue the bomb. Until Israel signs and
complies with the NPT, it will be difficult
to fairly enforce the treaty upon
other countries in the region.
