Speaking of anniversaries:

In a few weeks it will be November 1, which marks the 50th anniversary of the first hydrogen bomb explosion (code name "Mike" on the Pacific island of Eniwetok).

And despite the concerns back then about (mis)use of the weapon, the human race has managed to step back from the brink of nuclear annihilation. That's something to keep in mind when you hear assertions that Saddam Hussein - or others - are likely to use nukes.
