We'll meet again...
As I sit here on the couch putting my site together, I have the Stanley Kubrick film Dr. Strangelove playing on the TV. The B-52 is about to drop the bomb, and it occurs to me just how absurd the situation is. At the same time, it's a scary thought that a situation like this could ever occur.
And yet the government still hasn't learned the lesson. Even Pinellas County now fluoridates the water, over the protests of many of its residents. It's only a matter of time until someone who works at McDill gets fed up with the situation and flips out like General Jack D. Ripper.
In all seriousness, even with the USSR no longer around, the threat of nuclear proliferation has not ended, and in many ways, the situation is probably more unstable. The nuclear enemies of the day are now Iran and North Korea. As smaller countries, I wonder if they will just get fed up at being bullied and strike out at their enemies.
It's a situation that needs to be resolved sooner, rather than later.
