MGW 2010 2 ******Generic Defenses of Nuclear War***** Nuclear War Kills K Alt Nuclear war would obliterate the alt – it would cause an increase in political repression and would crush meaningful dissent Martin in 02 (Brian, Professor @ Univ. of Wollongong, “Activism after nuclear war?””, 9/3/02, http://www.uow.edu.au/arts/sts/bmartin/pubs/02tff.html) In the event of nuclear war , as well as death and destruction there will be serious political consequences . Social activists should be prepared. The confrontation between Indian and Pakistani governments earlier this year showed that military use of nuclear weapons is quite possible . There are other plausible scenarios. A US military attack against Iraq could lead Saddam Hussein to release chemical or biological weapons, providing a trigger for a US nuclear strike. Israeli nuclear weapons might also be unleashed. Another possibility is accidental nuclear war. Paul Rogers in his book Losing Control says that the risk of nuclear war has increased due to proliferation, increased emphasis on nuclear war-fighting, reduced commitment to arms control ( especially by the US government ) and Russian reliance on nuclear arms as its conventional forces disintegrate . A major nuclear war could kill hundreds of millions of people. But less catastrophic outcomes are possible. A limited exchange might kill "only" tens or hundreds of thousands of people. Use of nuclear "bunker-busters" might lead to an immediate death toll in the thousands or less. Nuclear war would also lead to increased political repression. Martial law might be declared. Activists would be targeted for surveillance or arrest. Dissent would become even riskier . War always brings restraints on civil liberties . The political aftermath of September 11 - increased powers for police forces and spy agencies, increased intolerance of and controls over political dissent - is just a taste of what would be in store in the aftermath of nuclear war . Nuclear war would cause repression and kill peace movements Martin in 82 (Brian, Prof. at Univ. of Wollongong, Bulletin of Peace Proposals, Vol. 13, No. 2, 1982, pp. 149-159, http://www.uow.edu.au/arts/sts/bmartin/pubs/82bpp.html )
