No Nukes Is Good Nukes

That Osama bin Laden and his web of terrorists might have nuclear
weapons doesn't bear thinking about, but Wired raises this specter
without bringing much meat to the meal. There's some discussion about
suitcase-sized nukes and gossip that the Soviets lost a few during
the break-up of the Soviet Union, as well as informer reports that
bin Laden has been after nuclear materials for a long time. The story
is thin, if terrifying, but it points to a fat resource put up by
Carey Sublette. Nuclear Weapons Frequently Asked Questions (NWFAQ) is
a megaton of information about nuclear weapons in general, organized
into 14 big chapters (two aren't online yet). You can download a .zip
file of the whole thing to read at your convenience. Carey thinks
public commentary and awareness is essential to combat proliferation
and guard against misuse. His site is huge, fairly authoritative, and
readable, a serious place for a serious subject.
