Ploughshares contributes to many anti-war and anti-nuclear groups that criticize U.S. foreign policy and the U.S. military. It is a big backer of the Connect U.S. Fund, which promotes global governance and tries to direct global policy by "grant-making on human rights, non-proliferation, and climate change."
This group called Connect U.S. Fund calls for massive slashes in our military budget so that U.S. money can be spent on "sustainable energy," financing a "green stimulus," and combating "climate change as a security threat." Other projects include urging U.S. troops overseas to wear the UN's blue helmets, using U.S. Armed Forces to take on the task of ending "global poverty," and to stationing U.S. "peacekeeping" forces worldwide.
U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma says: "At a time when North Korea is threatening our allies with nuclear capabilities, and Iran continues to pursue a nuclear weapon and the means to deliver it, the security of our own nation and of our allies requires us to be vigilant about our own nuclear weapons and defense systems." Americans should also be vigilant to monitor U.S. officials who might try to lock us into global government.
