    Re: Nuclear disarmament

    Nuclear weapons = disincentive to **** with USA (in regards to Russia, China, etc.)

    Getting rid of nuclear weapons = bye bye land of the free, your ass is going to be a nuclear wasteland!

    IOW, **** no. We have over 5000 warheads, let's keep it that way. If someone ****s with us we turn them into a desolate wasteland before they turn us into such.

    The largest weapon we currently have in our Stockpile is 9 Mega-tons.

    Not sure about the Russians though.

    Amd whats a " N Bomb " ?? A neutron bomb ?

    That's the most destructive and dirtiest weapon that exist. It kills everything and effectively salts the earth for decades.

    Hyrdogen weapons may cause more damage to buildings and infrastructure but they produce a fraction of the radioactive fallout that a Nuetron bomb creates.

    Kim Jong-Un? Pshh who cares about him. If he ever used his nuclear weapons his country would be destroyed within a month. Even China (their puppet masters) would immidedatley turn against them. But, Putin? It can be done. The same was said "the USSR and the US could never work out a deal" but look what happened...

    Re: Nuclear disarmament

    Even if there WAS a magic button to remove ALL nukes from the world, forever, I would not want to push it. Fact is, I have no desire to see a world war. Nukes make that dream a reality.

    Nukes are different. Even if we were to disarm every nuclear weapon in existence, nuclear technology would still exist, and it wouldn't take a nuclear engineer with bad intentions much time to figure out how to make it explode again. Hell, even a backwards-ass country like Iran would have had their hands on nukes by now if it weren't for American sabotage.

    On top of that, do you honestly believe any government in it's right mind would ever consider full disarmament, and take other nations at face value?

    A neutron bomb is a tactical nuclear weapon with a small blast range, but which irradiates the surrounding area with neutrons. How it works is it is a (small) hydrogen bomb, without the U-238 casing to capture the neutrons (a hydrogen bomb fuses deuterium and tritium, thus releasing a neutron in each atomic interaction, which, if not captured, would irradiate the surrounding area, in contrast, only the last in a series of fission events releases a neutron into the surrounding area). A neutron bomb leaves the same amount of residual radioactivity as a hydrogen bomb of the same size. The extreme radioactive effect only harms those in the vicinity at the time of the explosion.

    Re: Nuclear disarmament

    If we were to, it would be horrible timing. Now that nations like Iran who aren't very fond of us are trying for nuclear weapons, it would just make us an easier target. The world would be changed forever if it came to world-wide nuclear warfare, and it's sad. Unfortunately, we have to remain prepared in case something of that horrific nature happens.

    Re: Nuclear disarmament

    As long as the knowledge to create nuclear weapons exists, it is safer for us to have them than to not have them.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    No, you're wrong and I know how Nuetron Bombs function.

    Nuetron bombs are also known as " Enhanced Radiation Devices. "

    The casing that sheilds conventional Fusion weapons is deliberately thin facilitating a greater release of the Nuetrons produced during the Fusion. Reaction.

    A Nuetron Bomb produces 10 times the radioactive fallout that a conventional fissile weapon creates. Its the Fissile trigger in a Fusion Bomb that creates the Radioactive fallout.

    They are also banned under the 1996 Comprehensive Test Ban.

    Also, Hydrogen weapons use deuterium and Lithium 6, not tritium.

    Tritium is produced a microsecond after the fissile trigger detonates from the Lithium 6.
