Nuclear waste: America's 'biggest security threat' Spent fuel is currently sitting in pools around the country, like at this plant in southeast Texas. Shares of both Coca-Cola and Pepsi are near all-time highs as investors flock to the safety of stodgy food and beverage companies. Inflation in Venezuela will increase by nearly 500% this year and a whopping 1600% in 2017, according to new projections by the IMF.
SecureWorks, Dell's cybersecurity business, has filed plans to raise more than $150 million in an IPO. In honor of Equal Pay Day, which marks how women still do not receive equal pay for equal work, here are some key facts about the gender pay gap. During a radio interview yesterday, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was asked if he thinks President Obama should now be considered a threat to national security. I couldn’t help but ask myself that question on Friday when I heard the testimony of General Joseph Dunford, President Obama’s nominee to be the next Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, before the Senate Armed Services Committee. Now, Dunford is undoubtedly correct when it comes to the global threats facing us, and those are the threats it’s his job to assess.
In fact, far more Americans were killed by gun violence in 2013 alone (33,636) than all the Americans killed on U.S. Far more Americans have been killed by gun violence in 2013 alone (33,636) than all the Americans killed on U.S. Now I know that many on the right are preparing to regurgitate their tired talking point that this is a push to grab their guns.

Like the stock market crashes that periodically wipe out so many fortunes, military crises are hard to predict. So don’t be surprised if the economic sanctions Washington has led the West in imposing on Russia look like a bad idea a year from now. Putin describes the Crimea as a birthplace of Russian culture, and his government has repeatedly warned against the expansion of Western economic and political influence into a region historically regarded as Moscow’s sphere of influence. Many Russians think that attacks on their country are a real possibility, and that their nuclear deterrent — which consists mainly of silo-based missiles in known locations — might have to be launched quickly to escape a preemptive strike.
The ruble lost nearly half its value against the dollar last year, and the economy has begun to shrink.
Like authoritarian rulers in other nations, Putin has built his political base by appealing to nationalism, fashioning a revisionist view of recent events in which Russia is the victim rather that the author of its own misfortunes. The unspoken wisdom in Washington today is that if nobody gives voice to such fears, then they don’t need to be addressed. FIRST THEY CAME FOR - communists, socialists, trade unionists, social democrats, illegal Mexicans & Muslims and I didn't speak out because I wasn't any of them.

Market indices are shown in real time, except for the DJIA, which is delayed by two minutes. Trump that Obama has been so completely on the side of radical Islamic terrorists that he himself, has become a threat to national security and the country in general?

The biggest existential threat to Americans is other Americans—specifically, the ones armed to the teeth. When Dunford was asked what was the greatest threat to the United States, he responded by ranking them in this order: Russia, China, North Korea, and ISIS. But from a day-to-day perspective, our greatest threat, and I’d submit the more pressing one, is our fellow Americans.
Other Gun-Related Deaths: Apart from gun violence, another 20,000 Americans use guns to commit suicide each year.
Driving Under the Influence: Each day nearly 30 people are killed in auto accidents that involved an alcohol-impaired driver.
Domestic violence: Each day, three women are killed by their husband, boyfriend, or a person with whom they had been in a relationship.
The programs focused on the growing geopolitical and economic threats posed by Vladimir Putin’s Russia. At the moment, a combination of sanctions and plummeting oil prices seems to be dealing the government of President Vladimir Putin a heavy blow — just retribution, many say, for its invasion of Ukraine and annexation of Crimea last year. Russia’s moves on Ukraine look to many Westerners like a straightforward case of aggression. Putin relies heavily on the Kremlin bureaucracy to provide him with intelligence (he avoids the Internet), so his briefings tend to reinforce the view that Moscow was forced to intervene in Ukraine by Western subversion aimed at undermining his rule.
Between the two of them, Russia and America control over 90% of the world’s nuclear weapons.
Moscow staged a major nuclear exercise during last year’s Ukraine crisis in which it assumed missiles would have to be launched fast on warning of a Western attack.
Much of Putin’s popularity within Russia is traceable to the impressive recovery of the post-Soviet economy on his watch. Blaming outsiders for domestic troubles has a long pedigree in Russian political tradition, and it feeds into a deep-seated sense that Russia has been deprived of its rightful role in the world by the U.S. He has called the break-up of the Soviet Union a tragedy of epic proportions, and apparently really believes it. Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen says America faces little danger from Russia’s current troubles, but that’s because she thinks in economic terms.
That’s how a peaceful world stumbled into the First World War a century ago — by not acknowledging the worst-case potential of a crisis in Eastern Europe — and the blindness of leaders back then explains most of what went wrong later in the 20th Century. In the near term, Washington needs to work harder to defuse tensions, including taking a more serious look at the history that led to Moscow’s move on Crimea. Such material is made available for educational purposes, to advance understanding of human rights, democracy, scientific, moral, ethical, and social justice issues, etc. We kill far more of each other on a daily basis than any foreign actor has come close to doing in recent years.
In 2013 alone, 200 children 14 and younger were killed in crashes involving alcohol-impaired drivers.
In fact, a study found that alarmingly, at least one-third of all women murdered in the United States in recent years were killed by their current or past male partners. But there is one killer that truly jumps out as the greatest existential threat to Americans: Deaths involving guns.
I fully support that the Second Amendment guarantees them the personal right to own firearms as recognized in the seminal 2008 Supreme Court case of District of Columbia v. Even after mass shootings nothing seems to change, generally due to political considerations. You may recall in the last election President Obama mocked and ridiculed Mitt Romney for identifying Russia as America’s #1 geopolitical threat.

From the bombing of Pearl Harbor in the 1940s to North Korea’s invasion of the South in the 1950s to the Cuban Missile Crisis in the 1960s to the collapse of South Vietnam in the 1970s to the breakup of the Soviet empire in the 1980s to Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait in the 1990s to the 9-11 attacks and rise of ISIS in the new millennium, America’s policy elite never seems to see looming danger until it is too late. But as Alan Cullison observed in the Wall Street Journal this week, sanctions sometimes provoke precisely the opposite response from what policymakers hope. That is not the way they look to Vladimir Putin’s inner circle of advisors in Moscow, nor to most Russians. However, Moscow is far more dependent on its nuclear arsenal for security, because it cannot afford to keep up with U.S. A senior Russian officer has stated that 96% of the strategic rocket force can be launched within minutes. Since he came to power in 2001, the country’s gross domestic product has grown sixfold, greatly increasing the size and affluence of the Russian middle class.
Many Westerns believe a prolonged recession would weaken Putin’s support, but because he can blame outsiders, economic troubles might actually strengthen his hand and accelerate the trend toward authoritarian rule. By tapping into a deep vein of resentment in Russian political culture, Putin has created a broad constituency for standing up to outsiders even if it means prolonged economic hardship and the danger of war.
In a broader sense, America potentially is in great danger because Putin and his advisors really believe they are the target of a Western plot to weaken their country. Over the longer term, Washington needs to get beyond its dangerous aversion to building real defenses against long-range nuclear weapons, because it is just a matter of time before some dictator calls America’s bluff. And every single day, including today, five children or teens are murdered by someone using guns; that is 11 times more often than children are killed by gun violence in other “high income” nations.
But that growth has been based in large part on the export of oil and gas to neighboring countries at a time when energy prices reached record highs. Russia may have little past experience with democracy, but it was a major power for centuries prior to the collapse of communism. The biggest concern is that some new move by Russia along its borders degenerates into a crisis where Moscow thinks it can improve its tactical situation by threatening local use of nuclear weapons, and then the crisis escalates. Recent events including Russia’s takeover of Crimea and invasion of Ukraine show that Putin has an agenda that so far the world, led by Obama, refuses to acknowledge. Let’s briefly consider how Russia’s current circumstances could lead to dangers that dwarf the challenges posed by ISIS and cyber attacks.
So Russian military doctrine states that it might be necessary to use nuclear weapons to combat conventional attacks from the West. Now the price of oil has fallen at the same time that economic sanctions are beginning to bite. The hunt is on for a new long term repository, but finding and building one will likely take decades.The industry and the government say storing the waste at the power plants for decades isn't a problem. If that happens, it's only a mater of days until the fuel heats up to the point where it boils off the water and then catches fire.They note that the pools themselves are located outside the reactor's main containment dome.
