A Warning from Mr. Newt

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has a warning for us. It's a warning that's been sounded before, but no one seems to be paying attention.

He's talking about the danger posed by nuclear detonations in the atmosphere above the United States. It is believed that the electromagnetic pulse from such detonations would fry the power grid, which would likely result in the destruction of the country for all intents and purposes. It's why the idea of countries such as Iran or North Korea getting a nuke troubles so many people.

But it doesn't seem like it matters much to our current leadership, does it? Or for that matter, our previous leadership. If we were really afraid a sworn enemy of the country was about to destroy us, you'd think some sort of action would be taken besides clucking our tongues in front of the cameras.

Interesting, isn't it?

I just hope I'm in the blast zone should it occur.

That would be a sudden change in geopolitics.
