"BB Ad w/ Jack Shanahan"
Hi. I'm Vice Admiral Jack Shanahan, former commander of the U.S.
We can improve education and still maintain the strongest military in the world.
We spend 30 billion a year on nuclear weapons.
To show what that gets us, I'm gonna drop some BBs in this can.
One [SFX: plink] could destroy Hiroshima 15 times over.
Five [SFX: plunk] wipes out Russia.
And now here's the rest of our nuclear arsenal.
[SFX: Downpour of BBs runs uninterrupted for more than 10 seconds].
That's enough to destroy every major city on the planet 10 times over.
If we reduce it to just 4 times over we could save $15 billion a year.
That's money we could be spending on our kids.
Let's get the politicians to talk about the real issues...
