Nor are there enough B-2 to hunt down the mobile Topol M ICBM's etc.
There are not that much mobile Topol M... Currently there are 40 silo based and 3 mobiles topol-M, and they estimate that they will have 69 missiles
by 2015. When you already know where 40 of those are... let's say that there will be about 15 mobile launchers, they each are in a group of 3, which
makes 5 groups. I know that with all the technologies you can spot at least 3 of those groups...
Also for the SLBMs, most russian submarines are nuclear... the easiest kind of submarines to find because they make a lot of noise. My bet is that
with all NATO float, you can track them down in a period of 6 months and know where they all are at a certain time and sink them before they can
But about the bombers, can they launch a lot of nuclear missiles? Even then, you can track them down and hit them with the new F-22...
I'm not that good in military things, but I think it's what Russia fears for the long term and putting a missile defense in Europe is a dangerous
first step towards pre-emptive nuclear strike against Russia.
Anyway, nobody thinks they will not lose a few cities... they probably think that losing 10 to 25% of the population would be acceptable to win over
Also, why would the US place a missile defense in Alaska? North Korea won't launch against the US, that's for sure because they would be oblitered
and Kim Jong Il may be crazy but he's a selfish crazy.
