The downsizing continues. There is no future in working with nuclear weapons. Even the former head of STRATCOM seems to have understood this simply concept.

Big deal! Bret Knapp understood no requirement for nuclear weapons when he started "wiping out" nuclear weapon expertise and capability 5-years ago at LANS. The only capability he didn't wipe out were those goals tied to PBIs, like hydrotests, which he gets a $20,000 bonus for each one that is fired. Knapp is a genius.

In light of this it will be very hard for the NNSA to argue for larger weapons budgets in a poor economy. The support from DoD for larger weapons budgets may be in the past.
LLNL may get through the tight budget times if Parney can find more than weapons for a steady program.
Due to some poor choices, LANL does not look to have as bright a future.

Bingo, we have a winner! LANL is going to be repeatedly downsized and is about to become "Rocky Flats II".

There is little support in the New Mexico Congressional delegation for LANL. St. Pete is long gone. They'll continue to support their "good" lab, SNL, and let LANL slowly twist in the wind.

Los Alamos is "Rocky Flats II". Come on out to Area G where former Rocky Flats (and Savannah River) employees and managers are running the place. Things are so hectic that rules and policies are being broken to move the TRU waste. If things stay on this path, it won't be long before the FBI come in through the gates with M-16s and billy clubs to shut this place down.

They may have bigger guns but they will hand them to the FBI like the French did when the Nazi's invaded.

Nazis indeed. Good analogy.
