what i watch (countdown to zero)

This is a movie everyone should see, and everyone should see again, and perhaps now that we are seeing how vulnerable we are after what is happening in Japan it has all the more relevance and power. What frightened me the most about this movie was not the scenarios of terrorists and the black market of nuclear sustances which could put radiactive material in their hands, but the discussion of how simple human error could be the trigger to set off the massive destructive power of a radioactive attack or even unplanned contamination due to either the same (human error, human stupidity) or forces of nature. Just the fact that so many world leaders particpated in this movie, knowing what they do about both the power of radiation and how easily errors can be made, even at the highest levels, gives this film added validity.
