Somewhere there's a computer sitting in the corner of a Pentagon office 
that makes an unanswered modem call to a telephone somewhere once a week.

One day, someone will realise they have no idea why, and shut the 
computer off.

When the doomsday silo on the other end stops receiving it's weekly 
"everything is ok" message, it's going to nuke Beijing and Moscow .....

(I really really really hope that this is indeed fiction!)
