Pick: Are they suing the decedents of Oppenheimer and General Groves, as well?
devildog123: Pick: Are they suing the decedents of Oppenheimer and General Groves, as well?Yeah, they should probably sue FDR's descendants as well, since he authorized the Manhattan Project, and Albert Einstein for writing the letter that brought the idea to the President's attention.
ransack.: Well, they were part of the United States by right of conquest at the time, so I don't see how a country can complain about something that happened before they existed.
IrishBlunder: devildog123: ICC: We find for the plaintiff, all of you need to dispose of your nuclear weapons immediately.9 Nuclear Powers: BAHAAHAAHAAHAHHAAAHAHAHAHHAHAH! (wipe tears away) No.Way to waste time and money though. I'm sure the Marshall Islands have absolutely nothing to spend that cash on.Whereas I feel obliged to agree with your assessment of the inevitable outcome, still hafta say definitely NOT a waste of time. If lawyers spent more time bringing this sort of litigation into light (and pushing the press to put some legs on the story) instead of chasing ambulances and filing petty patent-troll suits, everyone on the farkin' planet benefits, even if only from the level of debate it brings to the governmental table.And on the freaky off-chance of success, it'd be nice to see all that nuclear fuel and consequent monetary savings put to use for cleanups, anti-proliferation, and nuclear power plants that might make my electric bill a wee bit cheaper.
