This crap happened before I was born, pretty sure it predates your birth.

This thread is so disheartening. We're putting so much money into mass destruction. The same money invested into researching how to "remove" a dangerous leader, would save the human species from self-destruction.

I usually agree with 95% of what you say, but on this I'm not sure I do. If you wish, can you answer my previous post?

"For those of you so against the U.S. having the best nuclear arsenal/capabilities in the world, what exactly are you proposing? Should the U.S. disarm themselves, in the hope that Russia/China/India/NKorea/Iran etc. will follow suit? What if they don't? Should the U.S. just stand pat with their nuclear capabilities, and take the word of the Russians and Chinese that they are doing the same? What if they aren't?"

You have never served, you have no idea what the USA's nuclear response is. In 1990, we could blow up the world 8 times over, you have no f'n idea, have never served you country, you should just probably crawl into a hole, because you have no idea what you are talking about.

The same money invested in trying to save world might work too. Probably pretty harsh of me, but I have no problem taking out North Korea, he is a dick.

NK has one or two nukes with no real delivery system so no nation is willing to invade.

In contrast we have thousands with a thousand differing delivery systems ...yet... for some reason we have a president that says we need more. Which begs the question of why is it NK can accomplish security with so little and not us.

I envision an international council who meets, if a nuclear-capable world leader reaches a point of being "too dangerous". That council decides whether to kill him or not.

Or, would it be better to simply let the nut-job launch a strike, and leave it up to the affected country to retaliate?

I am not sure, there is nothing of value there, may be the reason.

The Minute the U.S. Loses it's Nuclear Weapons Edge to the Rest of the World , is the Minute We All will be Turned into Hollandaise Sauce . President Trump Understands that Fact Very well here .


Like I said at the top of this thread, President Trump is very much like Ronald Reagan, with his "Peace through overwhelming strength" philosophy. Not a bad President to emulate!

You have to take the world as a whole, NK is China's little puppet, if Kim launches stuff at the USA do not bet your ass on stuff not flying back, and NK will not be the target.

He used that philosophy to break the Soviet Union. Russia is still broke, we don't need the same philosophy.

I don't think that has anything to do with it. Even if our country was made of gold and diamonds if it got nuked it would all be poisonous waste. Radiation devalues all property drastically.

Sorry have been around for a long time, am seriously doubting NK nuking us, if they do blow then the f up, just saying.

I never said NK would nuke us.

I said they are able to keep the world at bay with just a few nukes and little ability, but for some reason our president thinks our thousands of nukes and delivery systems are inadequate to keep the world at bay.

Just want a nation that bends over and takes repeatedly, do you? No thanks. I don't care why we are the target we are (in fact, I recognize that the biggest guy in the bar is always going to have a target on his back... and he's going to have to kick a lot of ass to stay that way, but it means he's doing something right.) but I do care that we are always in a position to exorcise the demons out of any other country stupid enough to front us.


You clearly have not seen enough death, destruction and chaos to assume such a cavalier attitude toward planet killers.

As far as the rest of your post up there, the biggest guy in a bar has zero capacity to destroy a planet so the comparison is ridiculous.
