Skip to comments.Martin Sheen among protestors arrested for protesting atom bomb

LOS ALAMOS, N.M. (AP) -- Survivors of the deadly blasts that devastated Hiroshima and Nagasaki 60 years ago joined hundreds of activists in support of a global ban on nuclear weapons.
They rallied Saturday at the birthplace of the atomic bomb, outside the national labs that feed today's nuclear arsenal, on the tiny island where the Enola Gay took off for Hiroshima with its deadly payload, and in the nation's capital.
Bombing survivor Koji Ueda attended a rally in the Los Alamos park where there were research laboratories when the Manhattan Project developed the world's first atomic bomb.
"No more Hiroshimas. No more Nagasakis," Ueda said. "We send this message to our friends all over the world, along with a fresh determination of the 'hibakusha' (atomic bomb survivors) to continue to tell about Hiroshima and Nagasaki, aiming at a planet set free of wars of nuclear weapons."
In Oak Ridge, Tenn., 15 protesters from a group of more than 1,000 were arrested for blocking a road outside the heavily guarded weapons factory that helped fuel the bomb during World War II.
At the Nevada Test Site, about 200 peace activists gathered for a nonviolent demonstration outside the gates. About 180 activists, including actor Martin Sheen, were given citations and released after crossing police lines.
In California, hundreds of activists marched to the gates of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, some holding sunflowers and others hoisting a 40-foot inflatable "missile."
The city of Hiroshima, meanwhile, marked the anniversary with prayers and water for the dead. .......................

Of course there aren't any comments printed supporting the bombs but then again, there never are.
Somehow, I'm not surprised upon hearing this.
There's a very old (60's), and very funny song by Tom Lehrer about the bomb...maybe someone can find the lyrics.
Pearl Harbors, on the other hand, are perfectly acceptable.
Martin Sheen should spend less time supporting Japan's horrific war crimes and more time keeping his kids off of drugs and alcohol. I guess it's a little late for that. I think that freak Martin really thinks he is President. He is not. Just a regular moron.
And Sheen is definitely an expert on bombs...bodda bing.
Oh, yeah. He'd get killed for talking like that in either of those countries.
"We'll try and stay serene and calm, when Alabama gets the bomb....!"
Are they sure that wasn't Charlie Sheen?
Memo to Mr. Ueda - No more sneak attacks on the United States.
Tom Lehrer So Long, Mom (A Song for World War III) lyrics
So long, Mom,
I'm off to drop the bomb,
So don't wait up for me.
But while you swelter
Down there in your shelter,
You can see me
On your TV.
While we're attacking frontally,
Watch Brinkally and Huntally,
The cities we have lost.
No need for you to miss a minute
Of the agonizing holocaust. (Yeah!)
Little Johnny Jones he was a U.S. pilot,
And no shrinking vi'let was he.
He was mighty proud when World War Three was declared,
He wasn't scared,
And this is what he said on
His way to Armageddon:
So long, Mom,
I'm off to drop the bomb,
So don't wait up for me.
But though I may roam,
I'll come back to my home,
Although it may be
A pile of debris.
I'm off to get a commie,
So send me a salami,
And try to smile somehow.
I'll look for you when the war is over,
An hour and a half from now!
Tomorrow is "Happy Nagasaki Day"!
That's not the one, sorry....it's about atom bombs..
One of the big news items of the past year concerned the fact that China, which we call Red China, exploded a nuclear bomb, which we called a device. Then Indonesia announced that it was gonna have one soon, and proliferation became the word of the day. Here's a song about that.
First we got the bomb and that was good,
'Cause we love peace and motherhood.
Then Russia got the bomb, but that's O.K.,
'Cause the balance of power's maintained that way!
France got the bomb, but don't you grieve,
'Cause they're on our side (I believe).
China got the bomb, but have no fears;
They can't wipe us out for at least five years!*
Then Indonesia claimed that they
Were gonna get one any day.
South Africa wants two, that's right:
One for the black and one for the white!**
Egypt's gonna get one, too,
Just to use on you know who.
So Israel's getting tense,
Wants one in self defense.
"The Lord's our shepherd," says the psalm,
But just in case, we better get a bomb!
Luxembourg is next to go
And, who knows, maybe Monaco.
We'll try to stay serene and calm
When Alabama gets the bomb!
Who's next, who's next, who's next?
Martin Sheen the Drama Queen.
"...a global ban on nuclear weapons...."
"...the Enola Gay took off for Hiroshima with its deadly payload..."
"No more Hiroshimas. No more Nagasakis,"
"...a planet set free of wars of nuclear weapons."
shouldn't martin sheen be an habitual offender by now?
We already took care of those two...
And the Randy Newman classic, "Political Science":
No one likes us
I don't know why.
We may not be perfect
But heaven knows we try.
But all around even our old friends put us down.
Let's drop the big one and see what happens.
We give them money
But are they grateful?
No they're spiteful
And they're hateful.
They don't respect us so let's surprise them;
We'll drop the big one and pulverize them.
Now Asia's crowded
And Europe's too old.
Africa's far too hot,
And Canada's too cold.
And South America stole our name.
Let's drop the big one; there'll be no one left to blame us.
We'll save Australia;
Don't wanna hurt no kangaroo.
We'll build an all-American amusement park there;
They've got surfing, too.
Well, boom goes London,
And boom Paris.
More room for you
And more room for me.
And every city the whole world round
Will just be another American town.
Oh, how peaceful it'll be;
We'll set everybody free;
You'll have Japanese kimonos, baby,
There'll be Italian shoes for me.
They all hate us anyhow,
So let's drop the big one now.
Let's drop the big one now.
I think their protest is a good idea in the wrong place. Martin and company should go to Tehran, where I am sure they would be well received.
A dollar short and 60 years too late.
If his actions could be chemically tested then I would have to say yes.
Unfortunately, all we have to go on are his past actions which could always be attributed to genetically induced stupidity.......as also evidenced by his offspring...
Expect Sheen to protest the Winchester rifle next time.
Dear Martin: We don't care.
When you attend a funeral
It is sad to think that sooner or
Later those you love will do the same for you
And you may have thought it tragic
Not to think of other adject-
Ives to think of all the weeping they will do
(But don't you worry)
No more ashes, no more sack cloth
And an arm band made of black cloth
Will someday never more adorn a sleeve.
For if the bomb that drops on you
Gets your friends and neighbors too
There'll be nobody left behind to grieve.
And we will all go together when we go,
What a comforting fact that is to know.
An inspiring achievement,
Yes, we all will go together when we go.
We will all go together when we go.
All suffused with an incandescent glow.
No one will have the endurance
To collect on his insurance
Lloyds of London will be loaded when they go.
We will all fry together when we fry.
We'll be french fried potatoes bye and bye.
There will be no more misery
When the world is our rotisserie,
Yes, we all will fry together when we fry.
Down by the old maelstrom
There'll be a storm before the calm.
And we'll all bake together when we bake.
There'll be nobody present at the wake.
With complete participation,
In that grand incineration
Nearly three billion hunks of well-done steak.
We will all char together when we char.
And let there be no moaning at the bar.
Just sing out a Te Deum
When you see that I.C.B.M.
And the party will be "come as you are".
We will all burn together when we burn.
There'll be no need to stand and wait your turn.
When it's time for the fallout,
And Saint Peter calls us all out
We'll just drop our agendas and adjourn.
You will all go directly to your respective Valhallas
Go directly. Do not pass GO. Do not collect two hundred dolla's
And we will all go together when we go
Ev'ry Hottentot and ev'ry Eskimo
When the air becomes uranious
We will all go simultaneous
Yes we all will go together when we all go together
Yes we all will go together when we go

First, you agree to "No more Pearl Harbors", Ueda.
martinsheen.....martinsheen...? Oh, yea...Is that little guy still around?
The best part is when the ultra-liberal Hollyweird actor who "plays the President on TV" is eaten by cannibals.
really? ... i'm going to have to go back to that book... visualizing Martin Sheen hanging over a BBQ pit has a certain allure
We already took care of those two...
Heh heh heh.....good one.
Along the trail you'll find me lopin'
Where the spaces are wide open,
In the land of the old A.E.C.* Yee-hoo!
Where the scenery's attractive,
And the air is radioactive,
Oh, the Wild West is where I wanna be.
'Mid the sagebrush and the cactus
I'll watch the fellows practice
Droppin' bombs through the clean desert breeze. A-ha!
I'll have on my sombrero,
And of course I'll wear a pair o'
Levis over my lead B.V.D.'s.**
I will leave the city's rush,
Leave the fancy and the plush,
Leave the snow and leave the slush
And the crowds.
I will seek the desert's hush,
Where the scenery is lush,
How I long to see the mush-room clouds.
'Mid the yuccas and the thistles
I'll watch the guided missiles,
While the old F.B.I. watches me. Yee-hoo!
Yes, I'll soon make my appearance
(Soon as I can get my clearance),
'Cause the Wild West is where I wanna be.
Martin Sheen is just you typical "seagull" protester. He flys in, makes a lot of noise, cr*ps over everything and then flys off again.
IIRC, he was one of the guys who went down to Puerto Rico to protest that Navy bombing range. He won ... the range is now closed. But all the locals lost when the Navy pulled out and took their Federal dollars with them. Haven't heard a peep out of him over the locals getting scr*wed ...
Hey - they didn't mention Tokyos or Dresdens...think how many incendiaries a B-52 can carry! And those firebombings killed more than the atomic attacks, combined!
He looks good like that - can we get the tape stitched on??
Short answer is,drum roll please,no.Why?Because to libs capitalism is evil so anything that proclaims themselves an enemy to us is the lessor of evils and thus worthy of their support or at a minimum the attempt to ignore the threat that it presents to our security.
I watched an excellent show the other night about the invasion of Japan. The show discussed dropping a nuke as opposed to the planned invasion of Japan. One statement made during the show knocked me over. The statement was made that the Purple Hearts we have been issuing since WWII were ALL manufactured for the invasion of Japan. Think about that.
He's not a real American but he plays one on TV.
"No more Hiroshimas. No more Nagasakis," Yeah and no more, ummm ....no more , ahhhh let's see...........no, ummmm....we're done.
