Quote of the Day
"JUST WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW: North Korea fires artillery barrage on South. If they start anything, I say nuke ‘em. And not with just a few bombs. They’ve caused enough trouble — and it would be a useful lesson for Iran, too. We can’t afford another Korean war, but hey, we’re already dismantling warheads. . . . "
Reynolds has no idea the environmental damage one nuclear warhead would cause. The radiation would kill potentially millions of South Koreans. Theoretically, a single cobalt bomb could kill all life on the planet. Furthermore, it is the South Korean government's decision what military or diplomatic action should be taken. South Korean President Lee Myung-bak has called an emergency meeting of the government. The United States should follow South Korea's lead. Not nuke a country that did not attack the United States.
Glenn Reynolds is insane. Did it ever occur to Reynolds that Russia, China and Britain might consider the United States an unhinged rogue nation if we start launching preemptive nuclear attacks against third world countries. It would put the United States national security at risk if nuclear-powered nations aligned against the Obama administration.
I'm amazed Reynolds is a tenured law professor. I would love to find out what his students and fellow professors think of his blog.
