Loose Vulnerable Nuclear Material!

According to the Associated Press, the United Nations Security Council today endorsed a global effort to "lock down all vulnerable nuclear materials within four years".

Which means that there is so much "vulnerable nuclear material" running around loose that it will take FOUR YEARS to lock it down!

For serious- is it just laying in parking lots and open sheds somewhere? I can see leaving a lawnmower not locked up, but a couple of pounds of plutonium?

What an utter, complete, horribly unfunny joke it all is. The only reason we haven't had a "third world war" is that we've Danegelded ourselves and concurrently engaged in juuuust enough resolute, crazy, or unexpected behaviour that our potential challengers are bought or scared away from trying.

The United Nations hasn't done anything to decrease the prospect of war since 1950.
