I should probably have clarified:
The B-2s can carry over 100 250lb small diameter bombs. If you send all 20 B-2s in, they can probably drop half before being shot down or running out
of fuel. These bombs can penetrate 25 feet of concrete.
Ok, I completely agree that the B-2s cant run wild all over china, but were just trying to bomb the rocket sites within range of the Taiwan straight,
right? Thats not that many.
LO tech is harder to defeat than what you think. Sure, you can probably detect it, but at a highly reduced range. The B-2 has a frontal RCS "around
the size of a mosqito". I assume that the bottom RCS is higher, more like a bird. Can China shoot its SAMS at small birds?
Alright, I have to be more direct about this nuclear war. If two nuclear superpowers go to war, they both die. Thats bottom line. One nuclear weapon
is enough to kill millions and millions of people, and one on every major city in the US and China is enough to get the people to say "stop nuking or
we are going to topple and than kill you."
And one more thing: If all your launchers are under mountains, how are they going to shoot out? By the time they move out, fuel a rocket, prepare to
fire and fire, we will have spotted it via sattelite and SDB'd it.
If china nuked the US, russia wouldnt say "dont nuke back or else, got it? China can nuke you, but you cant nuke them back." Oh come on, what do you
think the world would think of THAT? If russia stepped in, THEY would have all of NATO to worry about. Than you are talking about WWIII.
Also, probably effective, is the YAL-1 ABL. Two or three of them could knock out a helluva lot of ICBMs during boost phase. This is after, of course,
B-2s hold of the SAMS.
I feel that I have to clarify this again: There will NEVER EVER EVER be a full blown nuclear war. Three words: Mutually...Assured...Destruction. Even
if one superpower dosent get hit by a SINGLE nuke, and they nuke the hell out of the other country, everyone STILL dies.
Even if there was no radiation, millions would still die. Hiroshima and Nagasaki are an ugly scar on this country, what do you think the world would
say if nuclear war erupted?
