MOSCOW, June 1 (RIA Novosti) - A Russian political expert has told RIA Novosti that the international community is not paying enough attention to the threat of an imminent nuclear catastrophe.
"Today we are rightly worried about problems such as the possible development of the economic crisis, a H1N1 pandemic, and ecological safety. However, humanity is not paying attention to the increasing potential for a nuclear catastrophe," said Vladimir Kulagin, professor of global politics...
"The possibility of nuclear weapons falling into the hands of terrorists is being underestimated," he said, adding that global non-proliferation efforts were failing like never before.
"...for example if the Koreas or Iran or some terrorists use a few warheads somewhere on the planet... Only then, it appears, will movement towards a nuclear zero and real nuclear safety begin."

You're a dreamer. The nikes don't have to get off the ground. One nuke on a ship can pull up to a habour and explode. Or in a truck or on a train. It would be easy for a terrorist state to detonate a nuke in a public place. It doesn't have to be on an airbourne missle.
Not everyone who is critical of North Korea and Iran is part of an evil NeoCon/Zionist/NWO scheme.

honestly i'm a little worried about nuclear war in my lifetime.
more and more enemies of the west have nukes but thats not nessecerily the danger. the west demands that they don't build this, don't test that, stop buying and selling uranium. why don't the world super powers lead by example and disarm and recyle all their nukes.
