Nuclear holocaust fears defused by national debt

Science Blog has a funny article today about why we don’t really worry about nuclear holocaust anymore. I thought this quote was worth passing on:

“Why aren’t we as worried about [Nuclear Holocaust] anymore? For starters, we aren’t fighting with Russia anymore (at least not seriously), Pakistan can’t hit us and China would want us to repay all of our loans before destroying us.”

Mutually-assured-destruction replaced with mutually-assured-defaulting. Welcome to America.
