  1. I think Obama knows what he's doing guys! Jeez, give the guy a chance! Remember, he said he wanted to close Guantanamo. What else does he need to do? Oh, you want him to actually close Guantanamo like he said? Well, you know Repuglicans and conservatives and Sarah Palin and stuff, they're WAY worse! So back off!

  2. People normaly make the mistake that they think that nuclear war is out of the question because of the submarines. Please see Robert C. Aldridge: Nuclear Empire, ch. 9.

  3. They have put the warhead from MX on Minuteman-3. Do Trident-2 D5 have earth-penetrating warheads to minimize nuclear winter effects ? Who knows ? Will they put earth-penetrating warheads on the new missiles in Poland, Romania and Bulgaria to minimize nuclear winter effects ? Who knows ? But don´t worry, be happy. As former Information Officer of CND, London, David Guinness told me, "It´s only for blackmail".
