The rise of the Islamist Axis

Not meant to scare, rather to serve as a wake-up call.
This Monday Russia's Novaya Gazeta newspaper reported that part of Ukraine's Soviet-era nuclear arsenal may well have found its way to Iran. With the breakup of the Soviet Union, the Ukrainians agreed to transfer the Soviet nuclear arsenal that remained in Ukraine after independence to Russia. According to Novaya Gazeta, some 250 nuclear warheads never made it to Russia and are thought to have been sent to Iran instead. The report further noted that the warheads in question will remain operational until 2010.

Should the USA bomb Iran, if the UN requests?
Can anyone other than USA handle the situation?
Will USA wait until after the elections of Nov. 2006 to take any action?

I think everyone knows, nuclear weapons in the hand of a madman such as Ahmadinejad is dangerous not only for the region but the whole world.

If our 'western allies' request it. UK, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Spain and yes even France. I know China and Russia will block any attempt to pass a strong Security Council resolution, so UN's unified response is a moot point.

but they can be pretty scary if you are on the receiving end of them. I think it is definitely worth worrying about.

What is scary...
by J. Vega / April 10, 2006 3:32 AM PDT

One of the things that is really scary about nuclear weapons is their speed. It's incubation time is a matter of microseconds, it's primary effects spread spread from the source faster than a Fararri in high gear and the secondary ones spread "like the wind". They are also quite difficult to quarantine.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
