Coming soon to a Democratic city near you?

Chuck Simpson:

Six nuclear weapons disappeared from Minot AFB in North Dakota.

Five nuclear weapons were discovered at Barksdale AFB in Louisiana.

Which leads to my chilling conclusion:

Someone, operating under a special chain of command within the United States Air Force, just stole a nuclear weapon.

And this gem in the comments by the author:

I expect the nuke to be used domestically – on an American city. I have no clue where, except most likely a city with a Democratic mayor in a state with a Democratic governor.

Also, another commenter in response to someone who asked about security codes:

With the codes I would guess they would know how to bypass it. Like the movie the Abyss with the war heads.

Let’s just hope the thieves haven’t seen ‘The Abyss’.

For the record, I do believe that this incident is more than meets the eye. But I guess I’m not quite ready to jump on the “the government is about to nuke a US city” bandwagon.

  1. Don’t they have to have, and confirm presidential authorization to even release nuclear warheads from storage?

  2. If one was stolen, sure it is more likely that it was done for money, or blackmail? Even more likely than that (although far from certain) is that it was lost or it’s some kind of accounting error. Whatever it is, they’d better sort it out, and fast! Heads will roll, I’m sure.

  3. Its obvious – a ‘rouge’ element of a super secret agency arranged for 1 nuke to go missing. With the intent of destroying Tehran with the cover of plausible denial, but things went horribly wrong. A billionaire whose son was killed by terrorists is planning his own measure of revenge and has hired a crack team of special forces to gain control of the weapon for his own ends. But in a odd quirk of fate, the nuke falls into the hands of Green Peace ecowarriors who are bent on saving the planet from the evils of fossil fuels is bent of seeding the device in the bottom of deep Iraqi oil well – thus ruining the oil supply. Thankfully, a lone geologist learns of the plot and discovers to his horror that nuke going off in the middle of billions barrels of oil could cause a catastrophic chain reaction that would devistate the entire middle east, killing thousands of American troops and plunge the planet into a nuclear winter that could end all of humanity, but no one would listen to him. So now all our hope ride on the exploits of our last best hero – Harry Reid.

  4. James, You forgot to add that the ‘strange and unexplained’ disappearance of Steve Fossett (the billionaire?) over the Nevada dessert is directly linked to the missing BOMB!

  5. Its obvious – a ‘rouge’ element of a super secret agency arranged for 1 nuke to go missing.’ ‘rouge’ ?? The stuff you put on your face to make it red? Perhaps you meant ‘communist element’. I amnot a gud spelr though myself.

  6. Shipmates, All well and good. Except for the part about bypassing the codes, etc. You can’t do that. There are physically destructive safeguards to prevent unauthorized detonation. Respects,
