I dunno about walking a nuke across the border, but I worry about it being driven over. Driven over in a Mexican truck—sealed in a container that is not inspected. Bypassing US customs without a second glance. And all for the price of bribbing a low level Mexican shipping clerk.

Think it can’t happen?

Unfortunately, I don’t think even a nuke going off would wake this country out of its stupor. After one nuke, you’d have the NYT (if NY got nukes, substitute the WAPOST of LATIMES) calling for immediate negotiations, urging restraint, and stressing the many benefits of diversity and free-trade. Maybe if they took out Washington DC, NY, Boston, and LA it would do the trick. Very sad, but I suspect true. The reality-free liberal mindset is so entrenched in this country that it would take the death of a massive number of them to spur action.

I read a column, perhaps on National Review, where one of their writers was crossing from Mexico back into the U.S. The Customs agent asked him when he had had his barium enema. There was a similar story about a man trying to board a NYC subway who was pulled out of line for the same reason.

If a nuke comes to America it will probably be in a ship, detonated in Boston, NYC, Baltimore, or L.A. harbors. I'd bet on NYC. Al Qaida has shown a fanatical attraction to airliners as a modus so they probably have target fixation on NYC. My daughter lives in Queens. Perhaps she'd survive if it were set off in the lower harbor.

You can purchase this yacht for less than $150,000 — sail it from North Africa and right up the Chesapeake.

No, first the MSM would announce that the nuclear blast was not terrorist related. It’s just the first thing they’d do.

The day after, you’d also see stories on Page A5 about how the average ROP citizen ‘is afraid of retribution’.

So far, that’s the standard operating procedure for things like this.

Go back and look at everything from TWA 800 on.
