A Burning Question

IAEA chief Mohamed ElBaradei is urging us to eliminate nuclear weapons in the interests of human survival.

Hmm. I wonder what we could do with excess nukes, which would improve the human condition?

(That is, besides scrapping the word 'scrapping' from the article title, or sending them to the moon.)

See the Netscape/CNN news story posted byMatt Drudge,
Scrapping nukes vital for human survival.

I don't remember any use of a nuke to date. I can see where he's coming from though. If no one had nukes we would have to go to the old "nail through a bat" to eliminate threats. If only we could get those crazy dictators to go along with this.

I completely agree with Al Baradei, just so long as we agree that "scrapping" means "launching at Iran and Syria".

Might as well get our money's worth.

Don't tell me you don't blow off all your fireworks on forth of july regardless of how lame they were

(because I bought them from walmart... what a dumbass)

What the hell are our nuke subs up to anyway... shouldn't we atleast grease the chutes and send some flying just because we can (and they can't) I don't see the problem with it.

We sure as hell would be taken a wee bit more seriously eh?

I get so sick of peaceniks that can't understand that WE are not the bad guy. Dr. Phat Tony is right. The problem is that there are some really bad people in this world, and we can't just let them have their way for the ske of "peace." As the saying goes, I'd rather die on my feet than live on my knees. When Iran, N Korea, et al give up their nukes, then maybe we can talk.

I agree with Al Baradei. We should get rid of ALL of our nukes . . . by firing them in the direction of Iraq, Iran, China, and N. Korea.

Board with nail. It reminds me of the Bugs Bunny rendition of the Barber of Seville, where he and Elmer work thier way up the weapons escalation ladder.

I think we will probably see nukes used once again, one way or another. It may not be us. It may be an exchange between other powers, such as Pakistan and India, or worse a covert use by terrorists.

Al Baradei is naive. This is a Pandora box, which has already been opened. The only thing I see closing it, is nuclear fuel becoming more valuable than bombs.
