  • Sep 15 2012: WWIII. Is it really that important to get rid of MAD? Let's get real. NBC is scary, but it's more than nukes. MAD is just basically a stand-off. Just reciteHumpty Dumpty sit on a wall...... The whole thing, and remember how unfortunate it would be to replace something that works with something that doesn't.

    Even if they say they will play how do you verify they have played fair. As an example: how would you verify what has occured in Iran or China who have VERY closed boarders.

    The problem is not really nuclear weapons ... the problem is the stability of the leadership that has access to the weapons.

    All the best. Bob.

    Sep 12 2012: The problem in "religious warfare" is not the "religious" part but the "warfare" part.

    I have a Muslim friend, a couple of Mormon friends, and some Christian friends who I've known for years and we've never wanted to kill each other at all, nor have they ever wanted to convert me to their respective religions. We like each other for our common interests (basketball, anime, helping people, etc.) but we respect each other's differences as well. And you know one thing we have in common as well? We really hate the guys using religion to justify their own corrupt and violent means. And actually, we also hate just corrupted powerful people in general.

    From what I've seen, all religions are the same in that they wanted to breed good citizens to raise a good and loving society, and that's no different than an atheist or some non-religious scientist who wants to help society in his/her own way too. Corruption is the same in any religion, culture, society, or atheist beliefs. The only real difference is that they're just different ways or languages of communicating the same points.
