Why nuclear deterrence doesn’t work

Thoughts

You'd think that decades-long thing called the Cold War would have taught us all this. Kind of sad for example that David Krieger penned this article in 2001 and so little has changed. It's sadly ironic the lengths some masochistic people will go to justify possession when they're [unwittingly I hope] justifying their enemies having them too.

Perhaps this is what George Orwell described as being the necessary constant threat to keep people scared, because everybody needs an enemy. Cue the conspiracy theorists!

Welcome to the real world I guess. I need some cheering up… perhaps I'll make a grilled cheese sandwich :).
