Sorry if I upset you with my "50 megaton" comments, pfishy
. But, I've read your reply, and my post, over again a couple times and still
don't understand exactly what your beef is with it.
I recall the 9/11 event like it happened yesterday. I watched it on the tube as it took on a life of it's own. It was surreal; almost beyond belief.
I also remember how it affected this country in the aftermath. It did a lot more than just get our attention. But compared with a nuclear strike, 9/11
would be a day at the park. I do agree with you, though, there really is no comparison. But, it's the closest thing I could think of that anyone can
use to relate with.
I think it's likely I understand the impact and finality of a dozen 50 megaton devices detonating over American cities as much as yourself. I used
the number 50 because it represents only a small fraction of the potential exchange that would occur in an actual attack. Maybe if I had said. "just
1 50 megaton bomb", you would have found it less offensive. So, let's mentally replace the number 50 with the number 1 in my post, since it's too
late for me to edit it. I'm good with that.
The only point I was trying to make, though unsuccessfully, is that we can't imagine the HUGE impact/consequences that would result if we were to one
day unleash the destructive power at our disposal. It would surely be the end of everything we know. And I doubt there's much disagreement with
