A Smarter Nuclear Bomb is Coming Under Obama's Watch

A smarter nuclear bomb is coming under Obama's watch
Will the new "smart" nuclear bombs make it easier for commanders to wage nuclear war?

On today's episode of Loud & Clear, host Brian Becker is joined by Hans Kristensen, the director of the Nuclear Information Project at the Federation of American Scientists.  They discuss the impact of a decision by the Obama Administration to create a new generation of nuclear weapons.

In the second segment, Becker is joined by Bruce Gagnon, coordinator of the Global Network Against Weapons & Nuclear Power to discuss why the Pentagon is pursuing military superiority in space. What it means for U.S.-Russia relations. Gagnon explains how the Pentagon is using South Korea to threaten China.

Finally, we turn to the Middle East and the war waged by Turkey against Kurdish forces. Becker is joined by Adem Uzun, an executive committee member of the Kurdistan National Congress, who addresses the conflict in eastern Turkey, as well as the struggle of Kurds against ISIL in Syria.
