Nuclear Insecurity, by Wolfgang K. H. Panofsky* FROM sept/oct Foreign Affairs: " Summary: The Bush administration has adopted a misguided and dangerous nuclear posture. Instead of recycling antiquated doctrines and building a new generation of warheads, the United States should drastically reduce its nuclear arsenal, strengthen the international nonproliferation regime, and move toward the eventual elimination of nuclear weapons. " Did anyone else see (on TV) the some what exagerated, but stong anti-nuclear bomb fiction "Last Best Chance" ? (Terrorist steal highly enriched uranium, make two simple gun-type bombs, transported in pickup trucks. They set them off simulatneously to trick and trigger US and Russia into mutual retaliation / WWIII. Who they are is not clear, but would be good plan for Moslem extremists to create the world they want.) -------------- *Wolfgang K. H.
