How does it feel that the Indian government, instead of using funds freed up by volunteers for schools, and sewers and health clinics,built a nuclear weapons program?
They are under no threat of being invaded, now or then, but they built nuclear weapons for one reason and one reason only, to bully Pakistan.
And they did it with your help.
You call that a contribution to World peace?
I call it being used suckers.

...Suckers not! How many RPCVs paid no taxes that built the arsenal of 10,000 atomics? How many humans escape beyond Capitalism?
Most of us have been torn by the fact of Imperialism and how, as instuments of USA foreign policy, we fit so nicely into the tradition of the Brittish Empire and whatever we did can be turned or interpreted otherwise than we intended.
Our "free will" allows each of us to position ourselves within the world that already is. We can
not do nothing since that is passive acceptance.
What an RPCV did was done honorably! - Jay Melvin
