    The whole place will be lit up soon enough, but it won't be Obama who strikes the first match; after all, he leads from his behind. It's just taking the rest of the world a little while to get used to the idea that Obama aspires to have the US assume the same level of world leadership as Belize, or Nauru, or Fiji.

    On the world stage, we have a Klown Kar of Obama, Kerry, Clinton, Rice and a handful of others making fools of themselves and of us. Even now, Klown Kerry is in front of a Congressional committee claiming that Obama doesn't want to go to war, he just wants approval to commit an act of war. And he is simultaneously comforting the target of this act of war by claiming it won't last long or do much damage.

    How much longer do you think anyone else in the world will take this buffoon seriously?

    That's always in play with China. They know they don't treat their own citizens well, and hence why they rarely criticize anyone else who treats their citizens badly too.

    However, China still suffers from an inferiority complex (kind of the same way that India and Pakistan just can't settle their problems and why Germany despite having a very powerful military is always so chicken**** because of WWII). That can be used to tie their hands.

    Nuclear is viable and proven. Let's offer three prizes, one for the best large scale nuclear reactor design, one for a medium alternative and one for a small capability. Then let's build ten thousand of them. Problem solved. Give one to every coal company put out of business by Obama's henchmen.

    I don't think the environmentalists would go along with that, or most liberals. They'll say, look what happened in Japan.

    Kick them out. My preference is round up the identifiable liberals and drive them into Mexico, or the sea. You choose.

    What happened in Japan? Do you actually know?

    They had a Tsunami and the nuclear cylinders were damaged. You don't remember that? It was a pretty big deal.

    Re: Should we go into Syria

    yes DO look what happened in Japan (Fukushima Prefecture)
    What a bloody freakin' testament to the absolute saftey of nuclear power
    a tsunami that killed 20,000 people, the plant took a direct hit I'd think 'bout the only
    thing worse would be if a plant got slammed by a 8.9 scale earthquake?

    Not one person died as a result of the hit on the plant not one.

    All the people who still falsely believe nuke plants are dangerous and evil, they should be



    Funny thing 'bout them enviro-mental wackos coal makes tons of CO2 and spews mercury n cadmium
    Nukes are zero emission and if it weren't for them idiots holding up Yucca Mountain we could stash
    all the trash there.

    every pound of coal that isn't burned to keep the lights on could be made into petroleum products
    and as Misterveritis mentioned we can build mini-nukes with ease

    Where I disagree with him, don't deport them to Mexico put them in Yucca Mountain too

    remember 3 mile Island? three teeny tiny puffs of radioactive gas were released, such a miniscule amount it was hard to measure
    with the detectors of the day. It shut down the whole dad blamed industry but guess what? We've had them ~ 103 nukers
    cookin' along 34 years since and no one has died and they never will
    drill baby drill
    and build the nukes let em glow baby glow

    Well, that was not my point. How many people died in that "pretty big deal". From memory less than 20. How many died in the disaster that surrounded the plant's destruction by natural causes? One thousand times that number?

    Nuclear energy is the safest, cleanest means of providing energy for anything that stays put.

    I speak as one who loves nuclear weapons. But nukes have a gentle side as well. In the end it is just science.
