  1. According to Dr. Bob Bowman, former chief of US Air Force Missile Defense, missile defense is the missing link to a First Strike. Dr. Bob Bowman thinks missiles in Poland will be very useful to shoot down any surviving Russian missiles after a First Strike. Therefore the Russians will implement Launch On Warning. The terrible consequences of a mistake will be caused by the stupid Pentagon. Dr. Bob Bowman agrees that the Pentagon (McCain?) will get disarming first-strike capability by 2011/12. Acc. to former Trident missile engineer Bob Aldridge-www.plrc.org-the US Navy can track and destroy all enemy subs simultaneously. The main danger is Russian Launch On Warning because of US First-Strike Capability. Please read Keir Lieber and Daryl Press, “The Rice of US Nuclear Primacy”, 2006 March/April issue of Foreign Affairs. People must be aware that the Pentagon aims to achieve a First-Strike Capability and that must be stopped also because it´s suicidal as the Russians will adopt Launch On Waring. Who is head of the Pentagon´s Office For First Strike Plans ? He and his entire staff ought to resign. We must demand their resignation. Bob Aldridge resigned as Trident missile engineer because the Pentagon´s aim to achieve a First-Strike Capability is suicidal.

  2. What the hell are you talking about? There will never be a nuclear war because a nuclear war would kill capitalists as well as ordinary folk. End of story. And stop believing the US military hype about how they have a bigger dick than God. The Russians could get all their birds in the air before any of ours even hit, nuclear war will be suicide no matter how many tax dollars we send to the Pentagon, because for every trillion dollar system they design there is a million dollar countermeasure. It’s all a losing game. Pentagon builds anti-ICBM lasers, Russians cover ICBMs with mirrors, etc. etc. ad nauseum.

  3. Plus, if even one or two Russian birds make contact, how do you think Americans would react? “Oh great, we nuked all the evildoers, and we only lost Seattle and Denver! Go government!”

    I don’t know about you, but in that scenario, I’ll be burning down the local Homeland Security office before you can say “first strike.”

  4. The GOP needs more anti-war candidates like Sabrin. I do hope this is the start of a big trend. Let’s not forget that Bill Clinton had bombed Iraq (and Serbia and Sudan and Afghanistan and…) repeatedly. I could see 5-8 years from now the GOP being the main anti-war party
