Nagasaki Day

This only takes 90 seconds.


The bomb that demolished Nagasaki on August 9 was named "Fat Man."
Another reason to elect a skinny president.

I found this from Jan who got it from someone else. Keep sending it on...and on...and on.

Yeah: "Bomb, bomb, bomb. Bomb, bomb Iran." Not exactly subtle.
Thanks, Dcap and welcome.

Not only do we have to pay billion$$$ to maintain these weapons, sometimes they move inexplicably around ... like the ones that magically traveled from Minot AFB down to LA & put our military air travel on stand down last Sept. I don't think we'll ever find out what happened there. Very scary!

D.K., you are my news source. That incident slid past me. It sounds like a close call.
Some day we won't have a happy ending.

It was all over the news in Sept last yr. You can google "Minot AFB nukes" and read all the stories. Armed nukes somehow ended up being flown from Minot to Barksdale LA. Too many protocols were violated to make this a mere boo-boo. Now to date, about 6 of the "handlers" are dead, young AF guys, all while on leave in various "incidents and accidents". As Dada would say, we live in a beautiful world.
