MAD – what more can be said.

MAD, the brilliance of Mutually Assured Destruction: “You give us trillions of dollars, and we will use the money to build nuclear weapons that will never be used.” Is that money-back guaranteed, for whomever would remain alive? A single Ohio-class nuclear submarine—a “boomer” —can mete out 2,000 times the destructive power of the A-bombs in WW2, which levelled Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
