The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure.

Must watch: Nuclear war becomes automatic



I have a San Quentin prisoner friend who calls every couple of weeks.  Last night he called and insisted that we watch 'Fail Safe' so we paid $4 online and saw this movie.  I'd heard of it before but had never seen it.  I'd strongly urge everyone to watch it.

Sidney Lumets powerful and shocking film Fail Safe opened in 1964. Released just after Dr. Strangelove, Fail Safe was a serious wake up call during the Cold War. 

Henry Fonda plays the president of the US who must make the tough decisions when technology takes over and limits human options to prevent nuclear war.  With the coming of Artificial Intelligence (AI) we are going to increasingly turn over life and death decision making to robots and computers.

Let this be a warning.

You can pay online to see Fail Safe here
