What will we do?

Postby jltrent » Sat Jul 29, 2017 11:03 am

When NK sends ICBMs out way with Nuclear war heads and one hits LA, one hits NY and one hits DC.

I don't know. Maybe draw a line in the sand and sternly warn them not to do it again? Maybe send them a check for $500 billion and tell them not to do it again? Not sure really, just basing my reply on what seems to be the standard operating procedure used over the last several years.

If we have the laser system that will take the rockets out then we need to demo it for North Korea.

In all seriousness, no one will win if anyone starts tossing nukes. Most of us have lived with a gun to our heads our whole lives and have grown accustomed to it and forget what these things are capable of doing because our benchmark are the bombs used at Hiroshima and Nagasaki and these were only toys compared to what we have today. For instance, the Hydrogen bomb developed in 1952 left a crater a mile wide and 150' deep. Anyone who has dug a pond knows how much dirt comes from an acre hole yet the H bomb moved thousands of times this amount in a split second and this isn't anything compared to the technology we have today. The destructive capacity of a thermonuclear bomb cannot even be measured. If someone lobs one I'm confident no one on earth will be safe. These things are to destructive to use and I think anyone pursuing this technology has to be insane and is a threat to the world.

I agree there Joe. I think the major powers in the world are smart enough to not use them. It's the small timers that can't begin to comprehend what it would mean to use one that we have to worry about.

Duck and Cover of course... weren't you schooled in the '50s?
BUT... Why would Northrup King bomb anyone?

Exactly.
Some days I believe 1/2 of this country is afraid of death and the other 1/2 is afraid of living.
Just when did this country become such a bunch of frightened little ******s?

I can see one of your "mother of all bombs" coming up and I must say it would be warranted.

My dad and I were discussing this yesterday. We agree that a couple dozen MOABs should send a clear message, but the downside is that the rest of the world will hate us more. If we would start keeping the spoils of war instead of giving them back in better shape than they were before we blew them up, we would easily have another billion or so Americans to fight the good fight. I still can't believe there hasn't been a coup d'état in NK....or the US.

There are theoretically better hardened weapons than MOAB. Robust Nuclear Earth Penetrator research was funded in 2001, but I think congress pulled the $$ on it some years later.

Wow. Nice. Guess you missed those pictures of people jumping from the World Trade Center Towers. Your fellow Americans.
