Yes we all have more Nukes then we need. The problem is keeping up with changing technologies, which in turn changes strategies.
I myself have watched as we destroyed many of our best missiles and inside hoped that this was a good idea. It felt somewhat like a police officer
trading out his duty 357 revolver for a two shot derringer. But you have to hope! at least for a better world.
However we cannot forget that to broker good deals on the world stage one must present a powerful hand. So it is very possible we are seeing some
brinkmanship taking place. . Remember, the public is provided less then a full picture of the problems faced between competing governments; so open
support for our own government, whom ever that might be, is more beneficial; while if their is a growing problem, presenting our concerns to elected
officials directly. This will not dilute the efficiency of our leaders as they negotiate our positions. I know trust is a big issue, I have had those
same concerns. For those who lack trust and can, get involved, run for office and share your voice. We gain more by building up then tearing down.
If we were to take real steps to protect our planet and future on this world; If we really cared. We could move away from the Nuclear bomb and use
other technologies for our defensive posture. Such as the device sometimes called Thor's Hammer, A kinetic energy device which can produce the same
results without the fallout. If we were sane we would shut down all nuclear reactors in the world and replace them with anything else. Because
eventually they will all end up like Fukushima and I have a sneaking fear we have already killed ourselves with that on going disaster.
Three cores (Some have reported) melting deep into the earth and deep into ground water. Nuclear debris more dangerous then a nuclear weapon in
concentration and half life. Nightmares and horror stories cannot compare because this monster is real. To me every nuclear reactor in the world as
presently configured is just a sleeping disaster waiting it's turn.
And this is my Halloween story, except . . .
