We hear the chilling news about the possibility of suitcase nukes inside our borders, we hear that 10, maybe even 20 of our cities may be at risk.
The risk we face is nothing compared to what the Islamic World faces if terrorists choose to escalate the war on terror.
We currently have Poseiden Nuclear Submarines on patrol in the Indian Ocean. No terrorist could ever find them, much less destroy them. A single sub can unleash 50 missiles with pinpoint accuracy, each with a warhead bigger than the sum of even 20 suitcase nukes.
If the terrorists want to ensure that there would be no retaliation, they would have to destroy not only our major cities, but also our bombers, our land-based missile systems, our complete command and control network, and our nuclear submarines.
They cannot do this, and escalation brings with it such huge risks of anihilation of the Islamic world that it would seem incomprehensible that they would try to raise the stakes. Let's hope it doesn't come to that.
What do the Islamofascists have to lose? Nothing, and that's the problem. The Islamic world is a pile of crap from 1400 years of mismanagement, meanwhile the west has been prospering. Destroying the world might even be a goal for some of these terrorist scum, the superiority of the west cannot coexist with Allah's teachings.
Or, our will and ability to retaliate. Don't we have to ask permission of France and CAIR first, and Harry Reid et al.?
Demi-rat + President = Bye Bye 20 U.S. Cities.
umm, i dont think so. Maybe Trident but not Poseiden.
I was going to ask the author of this piece, "what target are you going to nuke?"
So we vaporize a rock... so what.
For starters. Then Medina, Qom.
As to your general thesis, no American president will ever authorize nuclear release authority unless a terrorist WMD can be publically and specifically traced to an actual foreign government who provided the direct logistical support.
"Say hello to my little friend!"
Suitcase nukes are an urban myth.
I've got bad news for you: The destruction of Mecca is a prophesy to the end times. At the rate Islamofascists are going, it's a self-fulfilling prophesy, because at the rate they're going, we're going to destroy it sooner or later. My question is, will its destruction make them stronger or weaker?
The temple has to be rebuilt on the Dome of the Rock first, though, right?
Good question. Ask a Muslim. Note the response. Nufsed.
Actually, not. Whether any are still functional is a question, but it would take major support to keep any of them ready to go. Whether the bad guys actually possess any is unknown. Anything is possible.
Good point. People who have nothing to lose are dangerous because they just don't give a damn.
If you're living in and on an anthill, you don't even know the benefits or reason for a law abiding society or culture.
Everyone has to make some sacrifice for an orderly and safe society. We all benefit from a certain amount of sacrifice so you can walk down the street safely.
Prophecy by whom?..Chapter and verse please.
