Ever have a dream that you were involved in a nuclear explosion or were blown up by one? I just did, not ten or twenty minutes ago. I wonder if that’s how the Japanese felt as they watched the bomb coming down in their cities. I wonder what really went through their head. What went through my head was “Goodbye.”
Today you’ve got a critical situation in which people can simply lie about a nuclear weapons program and cover it up and you’d never know until they were close. I’m not necessarily inferring that Iran has any sort of nuclear weapons interest as Colin Powell would suggest (in fact, I believe the other side has a story).
But I am wondering as to what extent our problems really are.
