Katrina Exposes Vulnerability in U.S. Security

Dr. Strangelove is still alive and well in planet America.



Hurricane Katrina has exposed a serious vulnerability in the U.S. -- that it doesn't have enough troops to fight abroad and in the homeland simultaneously. Hence, extraordinary measures could be justified. At least according to the military that is.

The Washington Post reports the Pentagon has a new strategy that includes a preemptive strike using nuclear weapons. The premise is that it is a preventative measure to be used against (perceived) threats from weapons of mass destruction.

Is it just smoke and mirrors to ward off would-be terrorists from taking advantage of the recent catastrophe in New Orleans? Or is it for real?

Only Bush knows for certain. What is frightening about this is that if anything can be learned from Katrina, it would appear the U.S. military is over extended and could not adequately defend the homeland if a terrorist attack should occur.

But what is even scarier is that they are actually considering using the nuclear option as a preemptive strike weapon. Before they push the button let's hope (for all our sakes) their intelligence is far better than what they showed over Iraq's alleged Weapons of Mass Destruction.

It's from the Union of Concerned Scientist. It's a great flash animation showing just how useless nukes are.
