Skip to comments.US Must Plan for Nuke Wars

Perhaps more than any other open-source outfit, the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments has put serious intellectual muscle into examining the implications of waging war in an environment where potential enemies dont just threaten to use nuclear weapons, they actually detonate a nuclear device.
While nuclear disarmament remains a noble aspiration, the world is going in the other direction, that is, more states with more nukes, says CSBA President Andrew Krepinevich in a new report, US Nuclear Forces: Meeting the Challenge of a Proliferated World. From four nuclear states in the 1960s, there are now double that number (adding China, Israel, India and Pakistan) and we may soon reach ten (North Korea and Iran). Potential enemies have learned they cant survive a conventional war in the face of the U.S. precision strike arsenal. In their strategic calculus, the only means of deterring U.S. military action is a nuclear weapon.

Nah, terrorists are now our FRIENDS!
Terrorists, er our FRIENDS wouldn’t nuke U.S.!
Obama siad there is no war on terrorism.
That's not all together true! They could refrain from doing anything to pi$$ us off and we would leave them to their happy little third world rat hole of a country.
Besides if Obama can drag out satisfying the need for more troops in Afganistan and perhaps Iraq, then there won’t be a reason to send troops there! We will have LOST THE WAR! This will make the terroists, er our new found FRIENDS HAPPY to see U.S. leave in defeat. Plus there is an election coming up and Obama doesn’t want to piss off his leftist buddies with sending ANY troops ANYWHERE!
Obama wants to dream big dreams about a world with no nukes and no terror and no rogue regimes. I prefer a president who views the world with clarity and awareness of the dangers that exist in the world.
My - when I see the term “Open-source” I’m usually thinking of something like Linux software - not a nuclear think tank!
I think of nuclear war 24/7
Liberalism is a fantasy world of unicorn and rainbow dreams. How many times will it have to be said before many come to believe such as fact?
The importers and other globalists aren’t going to allow us to disarm the newer Nations in the “nuclear club,” so it will probably happen before long. Beware those who spread of the canard about nuclear exchanges being the end of the world (same folks who complain about the “duck and cover” drills, as they call them, though they aren’t old enough to have really participated in them).
Such people have a mindset that will lead them to err and be greater burdens after an exchange. They deny reality until confronted with it, then they become hysterical and irrational. Too many of our leaders indulge in the same kind of behavior (paths of least thought, planning and anxiety). They are the same business and political leaders who would rather put necessary conventional conflicts off, because they’re more terrified of the present threat of freight fuel going higher, the dollar going lower, foreign product prices going up,...
Source means "source of information". "open" means they aren't concealing their identity for fear of blowing their cover. Some information can't be divulged because the number of persons who have access to it are so limited that the origin of the compromise would be easily discerned. That's a quick way to lose a source...usually to a room temperature condition. Other information isn't divulged because you don't want the observed parties to be aware that you have a means of observing them.
You know I just don’t get why the idiots can’t figure this out! If the terrorists had just stockpiled their weapons after the imnvasion of Iraq, we probably would have left in a couple of years and then they could have blown the cr*pola out of one another all day long. We probably would have insisted on UN sanction or some other Bravo Sierra but we wouldn’t actually do anything about...
As we have witnessed, no evidence is conclusive anymore in the face of today's politics.
I agree. In our lifetime, a city somewhere on the planet will experience a nuclear attack from a terrorist.
The nuke wars won’t be long term unless Russia gets involved. Russia can do a lot of damage - long term wise. Our progressive regime in power doesn’t understand that Russia thinks they are a bunch of pukes - fit only for the asheap of history.
BUMP for later read
Vladimir Putin is the new wild card in the upcoming actions against Iran. If Iran has nuclear tipped the missles it has obtained from China and Russia or made them dirty bombs, the United States actions may influence Putin to take over and EMP the US back into the industrial revolution, that is, with the help of Germany. Whats to gain? Commerce!
