Nukes for Peace
I refrained from commenting on Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize. (Does this make him the Prince of Peace now as well?) But I like how this David Von Drehle fella thinks. We should award the peace prize to nuclear weapons.
Humanity hasn’t changed its blood thirsty ways in the last 64 years, there are still wars, but the big players have too much to lose in a nuclear exchange. We don’t want to risk wiping each other out – hence the Cold War.
Outlawing all nukes will just give us an excuse to start killing each other again.
