People think that nuclear bombs are safe, that they just sit there safely until a president decides to fire them.
Not at all.
Like all equipment, accidents happen.
It’s just that no one tells us about it. Of course, that is the kind of news any military tries covered up.
Here, you will see some alarming examples of accidents that DID happen, and only by sheer luck did they not create a catastrophe:
1. A chilling nightmare plays out at a Titan II missile complex in Arkansas in September, 1980. A worker accidentally drops a socket, puncturing the fuel tank of an intercontinental ballistic missile carrying the most powerful nuclear warhead in the US arsenal, an incident which ignites a series of feverish efforts to avoid a deadly disaster. Eyewitness accounts — from the man who dropped the socket, to the man who designed the warhead, to the Secretary of Defense— chronicle nine hours of terror that prevented an explosion 600 times more powerful than Hiroshima.

And here is a discussion of the same, including more details on even more covered-up incidents that are happening even to this day:
2. In 1983, Russian electronic monitors were signalling a massive nuclear attack from the United States. It almost started a nuclear war. Luckily, Stanislav Petrov was brave enough to insist to his superiors not to launch a counter attack, and it turned out that the systems were indeed malfunctioning. Were it not for him, there very likely would have been a Russian launch, followed by a US retaliation, which is the default protocol. And the world would have suffered immeasurably, all because of an electronic malfunction.

5. Five Times the United States Almost Nuked Itself
According to some analysts, a nuclear war is inevitable as long as the stockpile are around.
Human error and machine error, at the very least, can trigger one.
Even if the risk is only 0.5% per year, that would mean a 5% chance of a nuclear war every decade.
Given enough time even a small possibility becomes a certainty.
One Stanford University Professor, Martin Hellman, predicts that any child born today runs a ten percent chance of being killed in a nuclear war.
So, how long can we hope that an accident will not go very, very badly?
We have only just been lucky.
The only way to prevent an accident is to ensure there are no nukes in the first place.
And only we, the United People of Earth, can call for total dismantling of nuclear arms. The governments won’t do it without our support.
