Nuclear Tipping Point (2010)

You should really watch this. Colin Powell explains how he didn’t want to shoot an “Atomic Annie” at the Soviets. Nuclear Tipping Point is a 2010 documentary produced by the Nuclear Threat Initiative. It features interviews Henry Kissinger, George Shultz, Sam Nunn, and William Perry. Did you know a good chunk of the power you’re using right now comes from the decommissioned nuclear submarines of the former USSR along with the Ukraine’s ICBM stockpile from the cold war? These are good guys trying to do a good thing. But there is a quandry. Who will own the last hydrogen bomb?
