" Every thinking person fears nuclear war, and every
technological nation, plans for it. Everyone knows it’s madness, and every country has …an excuse. There’s a dreary chain of causality. The German’s were working on the bomb at the beginning of World War 11, so the Americans had to
make one first. If the Americans had one, the Russians had to have one, then the British, French, the Chinese, the Indians, and the Pakistanis. Many nations collected these weapons; they’re easy to make. You can steal fissionable material for nuclear
reactors. Nuclear weapons have almost become a home hand-craft home industry."
