    No one is going to get nuked. If Iran or the DPRK used a nuke on someone it would be the end for them at the snap of a finger. Be political, and their states reckoning if that happened. Kim Jon Un is doing nothing but flexing his little muscle.


    Do you feel that your Country could actually protect you from an incomming North Korean, Iranian ICBM ?
    Yes. I think so.
    US has a pretty good missle defense system i believe.


    So he could take out a small California city and leave a cloud of radio-active debris, instead of taking out all of LA.
    Key word there "could".

    Re: North Korea Confirms Third Nuclear Test:

    American civilians have much MUCH more to fear from their own elected government than they do from NK.

    It flabbergasts me when so many people seem to care what they do.

    Especially when America is still the only nation to have ever used a nuke on others in aggression.
    Based on historical evidence, the world should fear the USofA having nukes much more than it should fear NK having them.

    I don't. I used to but not so much any more. NORAD could with out a doubt detect a re-entering war head, even a launch signature, but they have very little time to knock it out of commision before it starts it complicated internal set of instructions that makes every "fission" or "fusion" weapon go boom. That set of functions that takes a few micro seconds to complete. Less time because nukes are "airburst" weapons. Detonated at altitude to maximize its explosive effect.

    But a ICBM is only half the threat.

    The more likely issue is fissionable material or a complete working nuke making its way out of either Country into the hands of idiots.

    Like the guys who flew the planes into the twin towers.

    It wouldn't be a high yield weapon, maybe a few kilo-tons, but set off in the right area, next to the BayTown Refinery (largest fuel refinery in the US ) off of Wall Street or on Manhatan Island, next to our strategic reserves, a Govt data farm,etc..it would cause catastrophic damage.

    Now the US could ( after the fact identify. the original source of the materials to a parent State ) but after tens of thousands dead whats the point ?

    Based on Historical evidence we were in the right to nuke the Japanese.

    Up until recently the US was the only Country with the moral position to be allowed to own Nukes.

    Yeah, not so much in this kinder, gentler, world of Obama rule....We don't want to hurt anyone, unless you're an American overseas, then he'll take your arse out!
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
