Nukes

Well, it has been a really long time since anything was posted here. For some reason the creative juices that allowed me to post a new blog everyday went dry, leaving me with nothing to write about, or the ability to say enough about something to really make a point.

So I will try to solve the problem by writing a little today on what I consider a lot of topics.

First, there is the war in Iraq. As far as I can see it has been totally pushed aside in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Probably as it should be, this change of attention reminds me of how the popular media can only focus on one thing at a time. On FOX and CNN, all you see is round the clock coverage of a Hurricane that happened three weeks ago.

Now that there is another hurricane brewing off the coast, the media will focus on this for probably days, possibly weeks if there is severe damage.

I ask, where is Iraq? What is happening in Afghanistan? I might have to turn to news sources outside of American media to get information on things that I consider important.

The next thing is nuclear proliferation. The Iranians are dead set on acquiring nuclear weapons, and the ability to deliver those weapons to their targets. This is scary.

One thing that the Middle East is not known for is restraint and thinking things through. I do not think that the Iranians have really thought this through. Do they know what the consequences would be if the attacked Israel with a nuclear weapon?

What most people in America do not know, and I have said this before, is that Israel has and produces nuclear weapons. According to nuclear industry insiders, it is believed that the Israelis have not tens but possibly hundreds of nuclear weapons. From what I have heard, they have the capability to turn every major city in the Arab world, into a glowing hole in the desert.

This is my opinion. I think that we should welcome the Iranians into the club of nations that possess nukes. We should say:

Well done, now that you have them, you must realize that while these things are great in gaining political capital, and getting what you want through diplomacy, there are consequences that come with using them in a first strike against a nation that you consider your enemy.

You have now not only have to worry about retaliation from Israel, but from the behemoth with one of the world’s largest stockpiles of nuclear weapons, the United States and if you should decide to launch, your country, and all those that side with you, will literally cease to exist.

Again, congratulations.

Now I know that this is not politically correct, but the idea of Mutually Assured Destruction, or MAD kept two countries from annihilating each other for forty years until a peaceful conclusion of the so called Cold War.

Well so there you have it. I have squeezed out, about all that I am capable of right now. Stay tuned for future installments.

  1. Booting a Private School to Make Way for a Public School
    Your source of information and conversation about education in Georgia and the nation.
    Fantastic blog you got here, I fully anticipate stopping back for some great updates.

    I have a exotic travel, site. It pretty much covers exotic travel, related stuff.
    Stop by and check it out when you can.

  2. This reminds me, did you hear about North Korea? They agreed to no longer worry about having nukes. In exchange we and some other countries are padding them some, but still, it beats the alternatives.

    It looks like the spammers have found your site, too. It happened to me. You need to select the verification option in the “comments” tab in the settings for this blog.

  3. Yeah i really dont like news. Its all an entertainment industry. Unfortunately it seems to be the best thing we got. Did you know that the majority major news networks operating in the US have a small number of share holders that own the majority stock. basically a group of about twenty multibillionairs get to tell us what is important in the world. yeah like they are in touch with reality. no wounder why it is so unbiased and conservative.–>
