Writing about spies and Stalin’s bomb program:
But the knowledge that the Soviets, relying on their Siberian uranium and plutonium deposits, could theoretically build an unlimited number of H (hydrogen) bombs and A (atomic) bombs, meant that such international brinkmanship would henceforth always herald the possibility of global Armageddon.
Now that is new information. Siberian plutonium deposits, eh? And there was I thinking that plutonium was a man made element, created in reactor piles by the use of Uranium in them.
That’s certainly the way we Brits and the USians got their plutonium so the Soviets really were very lucky to have it just lying around, weren’t they?
