Jan. 2, 2017 By Jack Jodell, American Dissident, N.M.P. (in association with the gifted writer BURR DEMING, creator of and chief author over at the brilliant blog site Fair and UNbalanced. com – see my Blogroll at the lower right hand column of this page).
Happy New Year, everybody! In recent days we have seen the recklessly irresponsible president-elect shooting his mouth off about how we must expand our already far-too-large cache of nuclear weapons, in effect calling for a new nuclear arms race to ensure that the U.S. will always be on top in that category and will therefore always be safe. It doesn’t seem to matter to him that the U.S. and Russia have 93% of the world’s nukes beteween them – he wants more. For this big-mouthed bully to push for such a thing is indicative of his paranoia and instability – neither of which are good traits for a world leader to have!
In today’s podcast, Burr Deming examines the far more pragmatic caution prior presidents and generals have used before impulsively sending off a fleet of nuclear weapons, and how this caution was justified and prevented the needless deaths of hundreds of millions of innocent people.
Burr states, “On that singular night, US wrestling fans in Philadelphia, movie goers around the country, escaped prisoners in Ireland, and a Russian officer near Moscow had something in common.
They were all about to die.”
