    We're assuming conventional weaponry, obviously. Nuclear war makes the whole thing moot.

    I'm not sure what scenario would have to emerge for Russia to launch ballistic missiles with conventional warheads at high profile targets in the continental United States. For an enormous amount of reasons this is highly improbable.

    I was once told that in the event of a foreign invasion, the first thing we should do is remove all street signs.

    I guess that advice is no longer applicable.

    That was because of those stickers on the back of the street signs telling the UN troops where to go...or something.

    I heard that during the War of 1812, they removed street signs and the British wandered around Washington aimlessly. But they couldn't have been too lost. They found the Whitehouse.

    I wasn't there. It could be just some BS somebody told me. I dunno.

    I remember they just moved the signs around. Every once in a while they still find a sign pointing the wrong direction.

    In 1812 you could see from one end of Washington to the other. It was a tiny enclave of government buildings and associated housing surrounded by rolling farmland. A sketch of what the city looked like in 1800 (http://ghostsofdc.org/wp-content/upl...ngotn-1800.jpg). I doubt they could have even managed to get lost!

    Tru dat! But, I do believe we have a congress now, (as well as congress's of past,) that couldn't find their own ass with both hands. LOL!

    I don't care if they're benign, why the hell are we allowing them to build them here in the frist place. What do we care if their version of GPS works or not? Insanely stupid.
