Arthur Jumbles: Access to plutonium and the tech to use it effectively is a good deterrent.
AverageAmericanGuy: seemes like tomwshting they could use as fujle. No?
WhyteRaven74: you can use plutonium as part of the fuel for a nuke reactor.
alienated: Arthur Jumbles: Access to plutonium and the tech to use it effectively is a good deterrent.Um...... I think thats why the US Armed forces are still there. I could use plutonium very effectively with a model rocket, or even just dumping it into a water supply. Thank your gods I have no desire to do such a thing, and that it is well guarded from those who do.
JesseL: Reprocessing spent fuel is a great way of making more efficient use of it, reducing the need to mine fuel or dispose of waste. Both huge pluses for the environment. You'd think people would be all for it.Unfortunately, Jimmy Carter has his knickers in a twist over the risk of nuclear proliferation and did his best to make nuclear power us unsafe and uneconomical as possible.
DeathCipris: Nuclear weapons in Japan worry me. I mean, come on, who is the FIRST person they are going to go after? Maybe the perpetrators of a certain "incident" during WWII?
meanmutton: Oh, for fark's sake, it's fuel for nuclear reactors. France has been doing it for decades.
SirGunslinger: You could use the Plutonium as nuclear batteries to power Japanese sex toys for about 50 years...

Maybe the perpetrators of a certain "incident" during WWII?NOT.Every one who knows anything about japan knows who they hate more than bad sushi.China, and north Korea.Those two have been trading nasty words for years.Years? More like centuries.
NewWorldDan: Hoopy Frood: But in 1955, it was a little hard to come byYou mean it wasn't available in any corner drugstore?
lohphat: If we all had plutonium, we'd all be safer.Right?
