What do we do with recycled nuclear bombs?

    If the first source below is correct, then the utility companies are making excellent use of recycled nuclear bombs, primarily from Russia. The uranium is diluted and reused by the country’s 104 nuclear reactors to supply 10% of our electricity. However, after reading Robert Alvarez’s article on the recycling of nuclear power spent fuel, I’m not so sure. It sounds like the scope, cost, and inherent dangers are too great. On the other hand, the difference may be that the NY Times article is talking about uranium from unexploded bombs, whereas Alvarez is referring to fuel already once used. Not being an expert in nuclear energy I can’t say for sure if this makes a significant enough difference.
