[edit] Information

Rehearsing Doomsday provides an up-close and in-depth look at the nuclear forces of both Russia and the U.S.—the missiles in the silos, the soldiers in the bunkers, and the officers at the command posts. Interviews with retired American generals Lee Butler, Eugene Habinger and Chuck Horner outline the military’s growing reluctance to walk the tightrope over Armageddon, and startlingly frank talks with their counterparts in Moscow reveal identical feelings on the part of the Russian generals.

General Horner said, "The Commander of Strategic Forces and I would frequently sit and talk about the absurdity of having these large numbers of nuclear weapons... ‘Where are we headed? What are we doing? Is the Cold War over? If it’s over, why do we have these forces opposing each other in the field?’"

Also interviewed are Senator Bob Kerrey of Nebraska and Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Walter Slocombe. Senator Kerrey decries the current status of nuclear war plans, which are withheld from even high ranking Senators. Mr. Slocombe defends both current U.S. nuclear posture and the Cold War practice of keeping Senators uninformed, but Rehearsing Doomsday illustrates the dire need to re-think Cold War paradigms and planning. Mr. Crile’s years of research offer a wealth of facts that cast a heavy shadow of doubt over anachronistic U.S. nuclear policies.

Produced by George Crile.
