Down History Lane - MAD, MAS, SDI, NMD to ?

By Remy Benoit

There is a hint of Spring in the air today and it brought to mind a Ray Bradbury story that I used to read to my high school students each spring as a reminder to think about the impact of the things we plan, even if in the planning we hope that they won't be necessary. Planning sets things into motion - sometimes things we would rather not be set in motion.

So, to start Down History Lane today August 2026: There will come soft rains by Ray Bradbury.

Mr. Bradbury's story title comes from a poem, There Will Come Soft Rains, by Sarah Teasdale. It too is a grim reminder of what we too casually consider. There Will Come Soft Rains by Sarah Teasdale.

And now, some things to consider.

Nuclear A Project of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation Mutual Assured Destruction.

Mutually Assured Destruction Revisited Strategic Doctrine in Question COL ALAN J. PARRINGTON, USAF 1997.

Columbia Encyclopedia Strategic Defense Initiative.
