Why do we feel we have to have nuclear weapons? There are many countries in the world who do not have nuclear weapons at all and get on just fine without them, and spend that money on far more worthy goals such as healthcare, the environment, alternative energies, education and public services. Such a pity that so much money is spent on technologies to kill millions of people instead of helping millions of people.

What's with all the bombs? Are we planning on a war; getting ready for a war? What is it with man that he is so bent on destroying anything beautiful? Like our planet! Meanwhile people are starving... "I have more bombs than you do. Therefore I am more powerful than you." Childhood mentality.

I used to ride Boomers and Attack subs back in the Cold War. They're some of the best defencive weapons we can have; hope Romney or Johnson, whichever becomes prospective POTUS, keeps 'em coming! As long as we have little tin pot dictators like Ahmadinejad trying to make Fat Man bombs in the Middle East or scum like Kimjong in Pyongyang trying to nuke Seoul and end up sinking the Korean peninsula, we need our deterrent. I'm giving Russia and China credit for being unlikely to first strike us and start a war... it'll be some little tyrant with a half dozen obsolete black market missiles.

Apparently, nothing will stop man on his way to self-destruction.

The probability of human extinction is only going up. These Weapons of Madness and Death must be stopped.

Noted & thanks for posting, Brian. Yes, it will take "people power" to stop the funding of these weapons and pressure those in power to take better care of the people they are suppose to represent. There's a tiny, but vocal group who are magnified by the media to continue their fearmongering. This group profits enormously from the financial benefit of the construction and deployment of these weapons. We who oppose this must protest loudly while gaining the support of those who are uninformed about this topic.

The Green Party candidate and her running mate were ARRESTED TWICE! Jill Stein and Cheri Hankala were first arrested when they showed up at the venue where the Presidential debate was taking place, as they had been OMITTED (along with Gary Johnson) from all debates, despite the fact that they are CANDIDATES!!!! We the People were allowed only to hear what Romney and Obama had to say!!!! Next, Jill Stein was arrested for providing food to protestors of the pipeline!!!! WHAT IS THIS COUNTRY NOW? IT IS AN OLIGARCHY, for the rich, for the MONEY, NOT the MANY. If only voting Green would not be giving victory to those who are turning the USA into an Oligarchy, I would have been voting Green for 20 years now, but I can't gve away this nation to the wealthiest, the polluters, those who lie and have no ethics, who kill buffalo, wolf, wildlife, forests, radiate, pollute, corrupt, and care nothing for human and animal life quality.
