A Nuclear Bomb Can Ruin Your Whole Day


"When only one nuclear bomb could destroy a city like Minneapolis, we don't need 6,000."

"Senator McCain: It's time to get serious about reducing the nuclear threat."

Northwest Airlines requested that the advertisement above, showing downtown Minneapolis as a target of a nuclear strike, be removed from the Minn-St. Paul Int'l Airport.

The advertisement from the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) was deemed to be SCARY and ANTI-MCCAIN by Northwest, the official airline of the RNC.

The UCS commissioned another ad for the Denver airport, featuring an image of that city with the same statement addressed to Sen. Barack Obama.

Elliot Negin, a UCS spokesman, said the nonpartisan organization did not design the ads to be either anti-McCain or Obama.
In fact, both McCain and Obama largely agree with us that we need to rid the world of nuclear weapons.
The advertisement has not been taken down in the Denver Int'l Airport.

So, if we do not talk about the dangers of nuclear war, it does not exist? Similar to the tactic of putting our heads under the bed covers so the boogieman that lives under the bed cannot get us?
