Missing Nukes - Iran Vs. US

According to this report, Iran has lost a "nuclear device" and the world is in a tizzy:

Believe it or not, this happens all the time ... just about everywhere.

In the US, for example, the Tennessee Valley Authority has custody of numerous "nuclear devices" which are stored at their power plants. In a former life I read a report they also had lost one. They never could find it, and the investigation into its loss ended with a presumption that it had been buried in a landfill.

Get a grip, people. Neutrons, protons, and gamma rays in Iran ain't the end of the world. The disaster at Fukushima, however, may turn out to be an extinction level event. If you must obsess over something "nuclear", it ought to be that possibility.

Urge your leaders to shift the money being wasted on battling Iran to an international effort to contain the toxic, radioactive underground plume of corium leaking into the Pacific Ocean. It's FAR more dangerous than your leaders' wild fantasies about Iran's nonexistent nuclear bombs.
