A small nuke detonated in any major U.S. port will kill millions and cripple our economy.

For God's sake, if Congress doesn't pass this bill, or the Pres. doesn't sign it into law, we will go down in history as the dumbest country in the history of the world.

This is a million times more important than the war in Iraq.
