The U.S. recently conducted the 23rd sub-critical nuclear test since 1997 in the underground nuclear test ground in Nevada despite strong rebuff and protest of the international community. It is a challenge to humankind's desire for peace and an anti-peace act of sparking off a nuclear arms race.

The U.S. had better drop its nuclear ambition and stop conducting nuclear tests and developing nuclear weapons.
