Blah Blah Blah

This is John McCain's analysis on nuclear power safety (if video doesn't show, click here):

So that's how he dismisses nuclear safety? "Blah, blah, blah?" I guess this shouldn't surprise me coming from the man who would sing "bomb bomb bomb bomb bomb Iran." McCain is not a proponent of careful analysis, and neither are his fans. In fact, they applaud his flippancy. (Check out the impostor Sarah Palin right behind him).

Also, check out this history of nuclear accidents, and then consider the intentional sabotage that could occur at the hands of terrorists:

Considering the fact that a nuclear plant houses more than a thousand times the radiation as released in an atomic bomb blast, the magnitude of a single attack could reach beyond 100,000 deaths and the immediate loss of tens of billions of dollars. The land and properties destroyed (your insurance won't cover nuclear disasters) would remain useless for decades and would become a stark monument reminding the world of the terrorists' ideology. With more than 100 reactors in the United States alone, if one is successfully destroyed, just threatening additional attacks could instill the sort of high impact terror which is being sought by a new breed of terrorists.
If McCain wants to be so nonchalant about nuclear power safety, then voters should reconsider his credibility on the issues of national security.
