Chain Linked

On Feb. 25 the Santa Monica City Council votes on whether Paul Conrad’s peace sculpture should be knocked over and replaced with retail development. Because nothing says we should work to prevent nuclear self-annihilation like a Tommy Bahama, a food court and a lighted fountain full of pennies tossed by shoppers wishing for world peace with their eyes closed.

When the Eastern Seaboard Nearly Became a Fallout Zone

A once-secret document published in The Guardian on Friday shows that the U.S. Air Force in the early 1960s came within inches of detonating an atomic bomb over North Carolina that would have exploded with 260 times the force of the device that destroyed Hiroshima.

‘Chain Reaction’ Is a Threat, but Not to the Public Interest

The first structural engineer hired by Santa Monica officials to assess the safety of former L.A. Times cartoonist Paul Conrad’s anti-nuclear war sculpture declared that the work “is not an imminent hazard nor should it be considered dangerous.” But officials still want to tear it down.

How to Destroy a Planet Without Really Trying

Imagine you’re a historian 100 years from now—assuming there are any historians 100 years from now, which is not obvious—and you’re looking back at what’s happening today. For the first time in the history of the human species, you’d see we have clearly developed the capacity to destroy ourselves.

The Enemy-Industrial Complex

If you opened the American door marked “Enemy,” what would you find? As a start, scattered hundreds or, as the years have gone by, thousands of jihadis, mostly in the poorest backlands of the planet and with little ability to do anything to the United States.

The Missile Crisis That Never Went Away

Fifty years after the 1962 Cuban missile crisis, and more than 20 years after the end of the Cold War, the U.S. and Russian nuclear confrontation continues. Each nation still keeps a total of about 800 ICBMs at launch-ready status, ready to be fired on a few minutes’ warning.

In the latest North Korean madness, the communist country has declared it would respond to any attack by the U.S. with a nuclear “fire shower” and said it would increase its nuclear arsenal. The statement came on Thursday, the day after President Obama warned of the “unusual and extraordinary threat” that Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons program poses to the U.S.

S. Korea Expected to Seek Official U.S. Nuclear Protection

Shortly after the U.N. Security Council imposed new sanctions against North Korea for carrying out a nuclear test, the communist country has reacted by warning of possible nuclear war.
