4,000 Nuclear Warheads In America Could Explode At Any Time. Seriously.

John Oliver is the late show host for HBO and he recently created a segment about nuclear warheads in America. The segment totally nailed it. Perhaps it will be the spark before the fire that ignites his rise to stardom in the likes of Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert.

At its core, John Oliver explains that there are more than 4,000 nuclear warheads in America and practically none of them are being properly guarded or maintained. Even worse, in some cases, our nuclear warheads are being operated by incompetent military personnel.

A military Vice President, who was in charge of several warheads, was caught using counterfeit poker chips at a casino. In another instance, an Air Force bomber accidentally dropped two nuclear warheads over the state of North Carolina. Luckily, the warheads did not explode. Just watch:
"Take a moment to consider the run of poor decisions that are required before you're being told you can't play guitar with a Beatles cover band when you're drunk at a Mexican restaurant in Russia. Just add all that up together and then consider this man had access to our deadliest nuclear warheads." - John Oliver
