So, when (if ever) are we going to talk about this? Nuclear disarmament seems to be dead. Or do we have to have a small-scale nuclear war / attack first?
Spot on. Add to that the nuclear briefcases, that a god only knows into who's hands are and how many of them exist. Really, one has to think how far can human stupidity go with the nuclear weapons? I hope we never see an Armageddon like scenario in real life like in the movies. Screw the mad politicians and psychotic warmongers. We want to live in peace with Mother Earth.
