[quote:Anonymous Coward 28520431:MV8yMDc0Mjc5XzM0OTE1OTA4X0Y3RTI2MTc4] Maybe this was a Pearl Harbor Day joke? The nuclear threat is real, and the systems in place for starting a nuclear war put a huge responsibility in the hands of people we don't fully know or trust. Since there is no immediate threat of full-out war, if we believe the government, we have an opportunity to discuss the issue reasonably. The danger of nuclear war is, very realistically, the total destruction of the advanced civilization that we cherish. Love it or hate it, "modern life" sustains us (you are reading this on a computer!) and will disappear completely if that button gets pushed. I dearly hope that the leaders of the world can abandon evil intentions, that they will resolve to do good and to work together, to eliminate the possibility that we should ever ruin mankind with these terrific weapons.

Iran has strongly condemned the US for carrying out a nuclear test in Nevada this week, saying the move threatens world peace and shows a hypocritical set of double standards set by Washington when it comes to nuclear research.
The Iranian Foreign Ministry said the Wednesday detonation proves that US foreign policy relies heavily on the use of nuclear weapons, disregarding UN calls for global disarmament, PressTV reports.
The experiment also drew criticism from Japan, with Hiroshima Mayor Kazumi Matsui wondering why the Obama administration carried out the test, despite saying he would “seek a nuclear-free world.”
The test proves that the US “could use nuclear weapons anytime,” said Hirotami Yamada, who heads the Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Survivors Council.
On Friday it was announced that the Nevada National Security Site had successfully detonated plutonium in a deep shaft Wednesday to test the safety and effectiveness of US nuclear weapons, National Nuclear Security Administration officials said.
