Where do you want your kids to grow up?

Hi mr. Perry. I'm currently writing my master's thesis about a series of false alarms in the US early warning radar systems that occured during your tenure as undersecretary of defense in 1979 and 1980. Those false alarms are to me some of the most frightening incidents there have been in history, because they demonstrate how a nuclear war could plausibly break out by accident. I have a number of question about this issue:

  1. What is the best way to mitigate the threat of an accidental nuclear exchange?
  2. What is the most important step the US and/or Russia could take to reduce the threat of nuclear war?
  3. Lastly, I'd like to hear your thoughts on the false alarms I mentioned. How do you think president Carter would have reacted? And did these incidents prompt any steps to reduce the likelihood that it happen again?

Thank you so much for doing this AMA, I greatly appreciate the important work you're doing!

Do expensive ingredients have the ability to lift a dish to a whole other level in a way that cheap ingredients don't?
