Seagal's How to Dismantle a Nuclear Bomb; Hosts 'Full Circle' to Return 'Atomic Flame' From Hiroshima
Actor and life-long musician STEVEN
SEAGAL will lead the way as the first individual to personally sponsor the disarming and disposal of a "high risk" Russian
nuclear missile with a donation of $100,000.
SEAGAL will mark the event by
hosting the "Full Circle" ceremony Saturday, July 16th in San Francisco where the "Atomic Flame" will arrive from Japan aboard
the Nippon Maru. The "Flame" was kindled from the burning embers of Hiroshima 60 years ago, after the world's first atomic
bomb was dropped.
Protected by Zen Monks, the original
flame still burns today and has become a symbol of hope for peace and a reminder of the horrors of nuclear weapons. Joined
by peace groups from around world, the monks will walk 1600 miles from San Francisco to Trinity Test Site in Alamogordo, New
Mexico. Once returned to its origin, the flame will be extinguished, closing a 60-year circle of fear.
A long time resident of Japan, SEAGAL says, "I have been blessed to know
many survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and their spirit for living drives my determination to make this world a safer place."
He continues, "30,000 nuclear warheads still exist today with 100,000 times more destructive power than Hiroshima. It's our
responsibility as global citizens to rid the world of this imminent threat."
Dr. Bruce Blair of the multi-national Center for Defense Information in
Washington, DC echoes this threat in today's precarious world: "In the age of cyber terrorism, high security hacking makes
the reality of an unintended nuclear exchange a stone-cold possibility."
Mikhail Margelov, chairman of the Russian Federation Council International
Affairs Committee supported the idea of a global fund to help accelerate the destruction of nuclear weapons. "It gives the
Russian government an opportunity to show their leadership and commitment to disarmament issues."
The fund is to be administered by The Nuclear Weapons Abolition Alliance,
and it is sending an official delegation to Russia next month to begin scheduling of destruction of its first weapon. (www.GNDFund.org.)

Steven Seagal visited Prime Minister
of Thailand Pol. Lt. Col. Thaksin Shinawatra
Hollywood action Superstar Steven Seagal has written a letter to Thai Prime Minister Thaksin
Shinawatra urging him to order a stop to the "systematic torture" of baby elephants, the English-language newspaper The Nation
reported on Tuesday.
Seagal referred to a recent accusation by representatives of People for the Ethical Treatment
of Elephants (Peta) that young elephants were allegedly routinely mistreated to make them "compliant" so they could be used
as attractions in tourist entertainment facilities.
"One hundred years ago Thailand had 15 000 elephants. Today
there are only 5 000, the majority of which are in private hands," the action-movie actor wrote according to the newspaper
He asked the prime minister in his letter to "immediately enact laws to abolish their use and abuse by the
Peta activists say the elephant-training
ritual, known as "phaajaan", involved forcefully separating young elephants from their mothers, confining them to tiny wooden
cages, depriving them of food and water and beating them with nail-studded sticks to prepare them for a life of servitude
in one of Thailand's many elephant camps.
Local elephant handlers denied the torture allegations, saying the ritual
had been proven over hundreds of years as an effective, but not necessarily cruel, means to accustom young pachyderms to humans
and "taking the edge off a potentially dangerous, wild animal".
Traditionally, elephants have been highly
revered in Thailand not only as domesticated working animals in the forestry industry but also as a symbol of the Thai monarchy.
Peta report on the alleged torturing ritual, which appears to have formed the basis of Seagal's letter, met with strong denials
from both the government and local handlers when it was released several weeks ago and also posted on the Internet.
