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!!!

U.S. may put nuclear arms in Constitution

N. Korea Puts Nuclear Arms in Constitution - U.S. Could Follow

North Korea identifies itself as a nuclear power in its revised constitution, according to a copy displayed on the country's official web portal.
The revised North Korean constitution includes
the phrase "nuclear power" (underlined in red).

The constitution was revised at last month's meeting of the rubber-stamp Supreme People's Assembly, and the preface details the accomplishments of former leader Kim Jong-il, claiming he changed the North into a "nuclear power and invincible military superpower."

The move has stimulated a heated debate in the U.S. Congress.  Following on the heels of North Korea's announcement, Rep. Joseph Pitts, R-PA, has called for a Constitutional Ammendment declaring the United States a nuclear power.

When asked about his pursuit of such an ammendment Rep. Pitts replied that "if Kim Jong-un wants to publicize the fact that North Korea has nuclear weapons and use them as a bargaining tool just as his father did, we are going to respond, tit for tat.  And besides; we are the world's greates nuclear power.  Why shouldn't that be enshrined in our Constitution?"
