MERCURY, Nev. If the Bush administration succeeds in its determined but little-noticed push to develop a new generation of nuclear weapons, this sun-baked desert flatland 65 miles northwest of Las Vegas could once again reverberate with the ground-shaking thumps of nuclear explosions that used to be common here.

I'm waiting for the republican horde to come in and tear colonel a new asshole.

Wait...Wasn't Truman a democrat?

Yes, Truman was a democrat. He's also been called the 'father of the modern day Republican party' - I also think Harry was a damn good president. But I feel dems of that day are way different than now.

Moving on...

This is a good move - and if you think otherwise just look at all the lies spread about the arms build up in the cold war days by Reagan. "Reagan is a mad man" all the liberals declared! Typical liberal lies.

Turned out Ron was right - and 'we' won the cold war.

Colonel, it was the Bush I, a republican, who imposed a nuke moratorium in 1992 - if you care to actually read the article.

Most of our warheads were designed back in the 60's and 70's. The technology in a Commodore 64 is probably superior. They are bulky, unreliable (because we can no longer test them) and approaching obsolescence.

I'm sure we have designed and built newer, safer, and more lethal weapons, but will they work? Would you like to go into battle we a gun you built from scratch, yet had never fired, not even once?

Nuclear weapon are a necessary evil in order that we can retain our deocracy and way of life. It is perfectly normal and only natural to bring your gun out of the closet evey once in a while, oil it up, and fire a few rounds to make sure it still works OK.

The ability to hit any where in the world in 2 hours +/- is apart of this very same concept.

Better the nukes, faster the global annihilation will be. Everyone is going to die one day, why not everyone dies in the same day - That must be Bush's policy.

I say we must develop more defenses than offenses. I have no problem in detonating bombs over deserts as long as it not affective to anyone life.

Will any of you guys vote for Bush next election?

i saw the berlin wall come down. the only way communism works is that the mother nation of it i.e. the soviet union, uses brute military power to keep satilite nations in check. thats the only way.
