Does any of this sound familiar?
In 1961, senior Pentagon consultants drafted a 33-page blueprint for initiating - and winning - a nuclear war against the Soviet Union. It was based on top-secret intelligence that Soviet nuclear forces were few in number and poorly defended - making them an easy target for a U.S. preemptive strike.
Convinced of U.S. superiority, the Joint Chiefs of Staff began advising President John F. Kennedy to risk nuclear war over Cuba and Vietnam - even though their own analysis conceded that if something went wrong, 75 percent of Americans might die. If JFK hadn’t rejected their advice, we might not be here today.
President Trump may soon face a similar test. With almost no public awareness, the Pentagon’s nuclear program has achieved unprecedented capabilities that once again raise the possibility that a U.S. first strike could cripple Russia’s nuclear arsenal and “decapitate” its leadership. Such capabilities all but ensure that hawks will begin lobbying for more aggressive measures toward Russia, based its growing vulnerability to U.S. nuclear weapons.
A frightening new analysis for the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists - by three eminent strategic arms experts at the Federation of American Scientists, Natural Resources Defense Council, and MIT - provides evidence that U.S. nuclear planners have “implemented revolutionary new technologies that will vastly increase the targeting capability of the US ballistic missile arsenal,” giving it for the first time in decades “the capacity to fight and win a nuclear war by disarming enemies with a surprise first strike.”

These people should be removed from office and put into a loony bin before they get us all killed.
All this effort and brainpower should be diverted toward finding a way to isolate and extricate the sinking molten cores at Fukushima instead of trying to put MORE radioactive contamination into our ecosphere.
