Nuclear capable and...
...nuclear armed are two different things. When something is capable that means that it possess the ability to do something - like bear a nuclear
warhead, not that it already has a nuclear warhead. Two different things.
Yes, I did not use the word "armed" although that's what I meant, by your terms. Essentially, this guy is saying that those cruise missiles which
are known about, were actually also equipped with warheads. When I use the word "armed", I would be referring to the actual arming of the warhead
with intent to detonate or strike. Armed to me means removing the safety, but then, I was never in the military so you might be right.
I doubt anyone is selling nukes on the black market, the amount of attention it would attract would mean you couldnt advertise without being
caught/killed. Also if they are being sold on the black market AQ would have them and probably of threatened the US into leaving the ME. Looks like
more scare mongering to get the US people to support more unjust illegal wars.
If they were, you would not know it. On what do you base your faith? I would encourage you to have a little less faith in your leaders in order to
keep a realistic picture of the world. The twentieth century world of politics was largely an experiment in post WW2 global-money and world bank
shenanigans. In the 21st century, these things will be faced with what the soviets and Islamo-fascists understand intimately: brute force
Scaremongering is a non-word. What does it mean, exactly? If you are trying to make someone afraid, then you are fabricating a situation designed to
cause fear. Like if someone goes around saying "seriously, vampires will get you in the middle of the night!" ...I'd say that's scaremongering
because it's outside the bounds of reality.
This is different because there is a real threat.
It is not unthinkable to me that Ahmadinejad is being so bold because he sees himself as the man who will destroy Israel. Even if he dies in his
quest, his salvation as a Muslim is assured. What other reasons are there for his insanity? I mean, he's either totally nuts or he has something up
The soviets, in their battle with muslims, did win, but it was not a flag waving victory. It was covert and made to look like a loss via a
manufactured "Glastnost". I think they may have reached an ideaological truce with the Mullas and are now using radical Islam against the US.
I've read one book which suggests that at least one high ranking soviet colonel "defected" to the Muslim side at the end of the war, along with his
What seems to be happening is that both the US and Russia are trying to jockey for global position with Isaac's kids (jews) and Ishmael's kids
(Muslims) in the middle. The larger philosophical question seems to be: Are there people in power who desire population reduction through a large
war. I believe that answer to be yes.
If I am anything, I'm a lovemonger.
