Utopian goal based on moral relativism.
If the Swedish FM is going to trash the US for dropping two atomic bomb on the Japanese during WWII, then by default, she has to be either for the capitulation of US forces to Imperial Japan at the outset of the war, or for the continuation of the carpet bombing of all Japanese cities with incendiary bombs, which up until the dropping of Little Man and Fat Boy, killed more Japanese than the two bombs did altogether.
NOTE: I’m sick of fools opening their mouths, spouting stupidity as if they’re intellectual giants.
‘All nuclear weapons must be abolished’

The third international conference on the humanitarian consequences of nuclear weapons has concluded in Vienna. A large delegation from the Government Offices and the Riksdag were there representing Sweden.
Our position is clear:
• In these unsettled times it is tremendously important to act vigorously to promote disarmament.
• The Government is now strengthening disarmament efforts across a broad front.
• Our line is clear: all nuclear weapons must be abolished.
A nuclear weapon explosion would have appalling humanitarian consequences. Next year, 70 years will have passed since a single nuclear weapon killed 90,000 people in Hiroshima and levelled the city with the ground.
Humanity must never forget this. The 2,000 nuclear tests that have taken place around the world have poisoned land and water for many years to come.
Last week one of the survivors of Hiroshima, Setsuko Thurlow, visited the Riksdag. She bore witness to the horrors of nuclear weapons.
