The "Peace" Sign

Don't get sick yet - I will explain! This is the "Peace Sign" What is it's real story? The sign was created in Britian as the symbol for Nuclear Disarmament. The symbol itself is a combination of the internation semaphore codes for the letters "N" and "D".

The sign was adopted as the symbol of the Peace movement during the Cold war by misguided idealists who thought that true peace was only possible through "Unilateral Nuclear Disarmament" In other words, we set the example by giving up our nukes and the Soviets will then find religion and get rid of theirs.

The Left was wrong then, they are wrong again. That does seem to be a habit?
