Awesome American Might Makes Me Wet My Pants

26 Jun

Uh oh…Uh oh…

So everything was fine the other day until I read this assessment of US/China nuclear Uh oh…stockpiles over at the Economist’s Democracy in America blog which reasoned that a Uh oh…Uh oh…piddling Chinese arsenal might not be such a good thing:

America, meanwhile, has not sat on its peace dividend since the cold war; it has developed better warheads and, perhaps more crucially, more accurate missiles for carrying them. The scary bit is that an American general might just advise the president that a pre-emptive nuclear strike on China could work—and he could be right.

Well, great.  I know that this isn’t quite as bad for US citizens, but it does definitely make it twice as likely that I’ll wet the bed.
