The WOPR is described here as a machine that "thinks" about World War 3 all the time. I find the anthropomorphisation of the process of computer operations curious. It seems to be a factor that plays into suggesting the WOPR, as able to "make decisions" like a human, can legitimately order a nuclear missile launch without requiring a human to actually carry out the final step.
