Doomsday Redux: Just How Many Minutes to Midnight?


Doomsday Redux: Just How Many Minutes to Midnight?

James Carroll

Last month, the National Nuclear Security Administration (formerly the Atomic Energy Commission) announced that the first of a new generation of strategic nuclear weapons had rolled off the assembly line at its Pantex nuclear weapons plant in the panhandle of Texas. That warhead, the W76-2, is designed to be fitted to a submarine-launched Trident missile, a weapon with a range of more than 7,500 miles.


Limericks for Binders Full of Nuking Men

Pompeo is a pompous man—oh yes!
Evangelical is his killer zest!
“We nuke em first, they cannot win
then to be sure—do it again!”
Killers for Khrist-----America does best!

The Time has come the WALRUS said, " We Kill"
For I am only following God’s will!"
“We nuke em all we nuke em fast”
'I love the sound of nuking blast
I’m cowardly, but for a war , I’ll shill!"

I"m Abrams—I’m a crooked, crooked man
I lie and cheat and Kill—that’s who I am!"
If there’s a war, I need to win
I lie and lie—do it again!
They love me for my evil grand death plan!

I’m President, and so that means I WIN!
I love to give the news its awful spin!
A soldier true, at heart that’s me
Except bone spurs----reality
But I can nuke the world–in hellish din!
