Perry Speaks at Dartmouth on Nuclear Threat

Former U.S. Secretary of Defense William Perry delivered a sobering talk  in Hanover Thursday, focusing on the potential for nuclear devastation in today's global environment. His lecture, part of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Dartmouth's summer lecture series, was largely an attempt at a wake up call.

JULY 27: NUCLEAR PROLIFERATION The relations between the United States and Russia are as hostile as they were during the Cold War. This chilling return to Cold War nuclear dangers, in addition to the more recent prospect of nuclear terrorism (extremist groups like ISIL and al Qaeda) and regional nuclear conflicts (North Korea, India, and Pakistan) leads me to conclude that the likelihood of a nuclear catastrophe today is greater than it was during the Cold War.
