About this Blog

The Loose Nukes is an attempt (by people who should probably be under 24 hour supervised psychiatric care) to bring attention to somewhat serious issues like nuclear weapons, militarism and other seemingly random, unrelated issues through vain attempts at social satire and other futile gestures of total contempt for a fading empire that continues to employ nuclear weapons, the ultimate instruments of an erectile dysfunctional national security state, as instruments of foreign policy. OK, you probably get the idea by now. We are obsessed by run-on sentences, peace and justice, having fun, and don't know when to quit. At any rate, we don't think nuclear weapons are a very good idea, and are most definitely unhealthy for living things. We also think the folks running this Empire should just get over it.

And now the NOT SO FINE PRINT: Read further at your own risk... and remember, DON'T PANIC; this is all SATIRE at its worst (or best, depending on one's mental state)! And some of the stuff in here is even true!!!

Containing China: Oh, Sure!

Is there a psychiatrist in the house???  Yes, the Pentagon needs some serious psychoanalysis about this missile defense stuff.  I mean really!!!  Do we really think we can put the military heat on China.  Did we learn ANYTHING from the COLD WAR???  Evidently not!!!

Bruce Gagnon, Coordinator of the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space, just wrapped up his West Coast tour.  Here's a graphic reminder of one of Bruce's major, central points about the current U.S. focus on Asia and the drive to encircle China (and in a CHINESE newspaper no less!!!).
