Former Vice President Dick Cheney warned that there is a “high probability” that terrorists will attempt a catastrophic nuclear or biological
attack in coming years
I just saw this and I wanted to tell someone that this is just plain and simple bull#. How the hell is anyone in the middle east going to hit us with
a nuke or biological weapon? Supposedly Iran is refining uranium, but that doesn't mean they will have a friggin nuclear ICBM tomorrow. There are
levels of miniaturization to reach before they could ever mount one on a missile, if they could even build a inter-continental missile at all, and
they would then need an efficient way to target us with it. THEY CANT DO THAT! What are they going to do? Smuggle a 1-ton+ monstrosity of a bomb in by
boat, and then drive it to where they want to blow it up in a big-@$$ freight truck? I'm sorry, but there's no way something like that could just
slip by us. I refuse to believe that they could ship a completed nuke through without us catching it on inspections, ship manifests, the coast guard,
and then just pick it up in a crane and drop it in a truck, right in front of a harbor, without no one noticing.
...and I cant think of any other way they could do it. I can't see them flying a bomber over our nation without us doing something about it either.
If we get nuked, I think it will be a act perpetrated by our government, to create a new wave of patriotism for some new, horrible war. I don't
usually buy into conspiracies easily, (I think 9/11 was an honest-to-god terrorist attack) but come on, a NUKE? this is bull#.
And the biological angle, I know they have anthrax, they could hit us with that, but its still not a plague, anthrax would hurt only a small number of
people, comparatively. If we get hit with something like the black death, or yellow fever, then I have a hard time believing that it came from the
middle east. More like a U.S. laboratory...
What do you think?
