I think it's very possible to have healthy survivors here if bombs are set off halfway around the world..especially considering how many nuclear tests we set off above ground in Nevada.

Yes. I think the big worry, and I share this, is the troops we have around the area. The troops and the contractors and those Americans who are trying to make things better in that part of the world. Keeping those Americans safe is the complicating factor, I know. They are very, very important. I don't mean to be callous or irresponsible in my discussion.

I was raised in an era that promoted the idea that the use of a nuke would automatically result in nuclear holocaust as the be-all, end-all of humans on earth. That really isn't the case and I was just wondering if the nuke discussion was worth having. I don't pretend to know how to work the logistics. No way. I am trying to discuss what sometimes is considered the 'unthinkable.' I hope that makes some sense.
