Greetings, Forum Members.

Now here's some straight talk from some folks who probably have some capabilities.

That is not to say the boys at the 'spook shop' don't have fissionable hardware that they're willing to use to keep the 'war on terra' rolling forward, mind you...

i just read about that at another forum....

the interesting part was the people from the midwest who posted bragged about how greater our nuclear weapons were than china's and we would kick their asses, and some others from the UK said they would join the fight against china, and still others from various countries said the US should keep it's nose out of other people's business, (taiwan), whereas americans responded that it was our "duty" to defend any country attacked by another ('cept when we do it, of course)...lol...interesting viewpoints.

if there was a nuclear war? sit on your roof and enjoy the light show for a brief second.....would you really want to live in the aftermath?

Contrary to Hollywood Myth...

Most confrontations between samurai ended with both participants mortally wounded. Mind you, this is only meant as a metaphor.

There are no winners in nuclear war. People who think that there can be are delusional.

Maybe the rapture people are calling?

They would be the only winners in a nuclear war--or would think they were for a few seconds anyway.

I have to say it again, has the world gone insane? Or is it only the USA?

I believe that your last statement is half correct... i.e., half of America has gone insane...
