Didn't get the lickin's the other ones had


Wednesday, December 23, 2015


Well, this is a timely reminder that 1. ISIS is not the greatest existential threat the United States has ever faced, and 2. useless rhetoric like "bomb the shit out of them" and "make the sand glow (with some limits)" once had real meaning.

For the first time, the National Archives and Records Administration has released a detailed list of the United States’ potential targets for atomic bombers in the event of war with the Soviet Union, showing the number and the variety of targets on its territory, as well as in Eastern Europe and China.
It lists many targets for “systematic destruction” in major cities, including 179 in Moscow (like “Agricultural Equipment” and “Transformers, Heavy”), 145 in Leningrad and 91 in East Berlin. The targets are referred to as DGZs or “designated ground zeros.” While many are industrial facilities, government buildings and the like, one for each city is simply designated “Population.”
“It’s disturbing, for sure, to see the population centers targeted,” said William Burr, a senior analyst at the National Security Archive, a research group at George Washington University that obtained the target list in response to a request first made in 2006. Mr. Burr, who specializes in nuclear history, said he believed it was the most detailed target list the Air Force had ever made public.

This week in non-mass murder murder

In Wayne LaPierre's sick world, (warning: turn down your volume, they are auto play assholes) the girl should have been armed.

And isn't smoking covered under the 2nd Amendment, too?
