REALIZING that conventional weapons are available which are as effective as nuclear weapons, but safer in lieu of civilian and environmental impact,

FURTHER REALIZING that the use of nuclear weapons may cause hazardous material to spread to nations not involved in the combat described,

BELIEVING that due to the above, nuclear weapons cannot be accepted as a legitimate deterrent,
