    It's a simple calculation:

    The amount of nuclear missiles that can be considered legitimate for each side is whatever the amount other side considers a deterrent.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    And your simple calculation (based on your last post) determined that for the US and Soviet Union the sufficient number was or is 50?

    How many of those 50 should be first strike and how many should be second strike? How many should be MIRV and how many cruise missile nuclear warheads? Of the land-based missiles, where should they be based? Are these also simple calculations?

    I love those wife swapping shows. Great entertainment, but not one I would say represents 'typical' anything. I mean really, have you ever met a family of pirates?
    Is what you're living for today, worth dying for tomorrow?

    I'm admitting that it isn't as simple as picking a number out of a hat, but, once you have some kind of estimation of what the amount needed for deterrence is, then you can calculate other factors- and a I guarantee no matter how conservative you are in your calculations it'll never be anywhere near what our current stockpile are.

    The way our current stockpiles were built, at least up to SALT, was both parties just built as many as possible, regardless of how many were actually needed.

    I mean what's the current US stockpile, like a few thousand? How could that many ever possibly be useful? It just couldn't, even a fraction of that would be enough to vaporize the entire Eastern Bloc.

    I've only met families of swashbucklers.

    Well I guess we'll have to leave it at this, because I think we've reached the closest we'll ever get to agreement on the issue. What I will say is that most reasonable studies of MAD would indicate that many more than 50 or 100 nuclear warheads were needed. And I think it's also fair to say that most experts realized by the 1970s that we'd reached a point of overkill. But whether overkill was reached at 1,000, or 5,000 or 10,000 is a matter of debate well beyond and 'simple calculations' by you or me.

    Yes. But I also think the other couple was a conservative stereotype. Can't blame the guy for calling her a fat, dumb, redneck. She is.

    As a matter of fact; my neighbors, The Arrrringtons, are pirates.

    They need to switch them with the family that are of the anti-sword lot.

    That's the point of MAD and what makes it so effective. During a war a nation is prepared to make huge sacrifices for victory. Losing 5 or 10 cities could be seen as a reasonable sacrifice to win a war. But if each side has thousands of ICBMs that it is willing to use they know that it would amount to the end of mankind. Losing 5 cities is not mutually assured destruction. Wiping out all of humanity is.
