outrage and alarm

If you are a supporter of civilian oversight of the armed forces, nuclear non-proliferation, and the survival of life & technological civilization in general, then you should be outraged and alarmed about this: A B-52 armed with six nuclear warheads flew around a little bit last week.

Oops. I wonder if the rest of the world noticed. I wonder how close former Soviet countries came to a pre-emptive strike. You should wonder about these things, too.

Interested? I encourage you to read War Scare, by Peter Vincent Pry.

It is my understanding that nuclear weapons are usually transported by military cargo planes.

Good news is that the warheads were supposedly on their way to being decommissioned.

For the love of god, people, let's not destroy ourselves.
