I knew this term all too well as a youngster. Growing up in the 1960's we often saw the grainy black and white images of nuclear explosions. I spent my Army career as a nuclear missile crewman in the 1970's at the height of the cold war and showed those same grainy black and white film reels to new soldiers more times than I care to remember...... I don't often dream and am fortunate that I very infrequently have bad dreams. When I do, those bad dreams tend to include those grainy black and white images of nuclear explosions. Last night I had one of those dreams and woke in a panic knowing I could not protect my family from something that hellish. Even now mid-morning I can still feel it in the pit of my gut. We now live in a world not so dominated by mutually assured destruction. However in its place we now have rogue regimes striving to achieve nuclear armaments. And frankly, that is a deeper threat than MAD in my mind...... Now, I am an old guy that has had a very rewarding and rich life. I fear very little. I wouldn't for one second hesitate to put myself in harms way to save someone close to me. However, the thought of being powerless to protect my wife or daughter absolutely chills me to the core........ If Biden is successful in November, does that man have the backbone to keep Syria, North Korea and Iran's nuclear aspirations at bay?
