Complete BS. The Patriot system has been combat proven to have, at best, a 3% success rate at shooting down Iraqi Scuds. Their Scud missiles were
basically the next step up after V2 Nazi missile technology, and were primitive ballistic missiles.
Secondly, how can a patriot missile even target an ICBM when the ICBM is fired from within another country, well out of range of PAC-II or PAC-III
systems? SAM missile systems have limited range because they are designed to down enemy aircraft, not missiles which are exponentially harder to
Sure, the US has its THAAD system, but at best it is just a theater SAM system (which, by the way, doesn't even come close to Russian theater SAMs
like the S-400 or S-500). There is no way that this system would be in range to down any Russian or Chinese state launched missiles. Giving the
Americans the best scenario here is that MAYBE they might be able to intercept an SLBM from a ballistic sub if they happen to be close by, but that
would mean little in the bigger picture.
And do you even understand how modern ICBMs work? They launch, usually within the territory of their operator's country, and enter space. Once in
space, missile breaks apart and the nuclear MIRV warheads separate and re-enter our atmosphere (Newer Russian ICBMs can carry 10 MIRVs each). These
MIRVs independently seek out their specific targets while falling from space at speeds that go far beyond any interceptor missile technology. On top
of that, I doubt any missile or laser will penetrate the heat shield generated from orbital re-entry.
So therefore why would you nuke us that would just earn us sympathy from the world and any country without nukes will most likely be overrun by
small armies due to no us military aid.
Why would anyone nuke the US? Because the US probably nuked them first.
And you're wrong, like usual. Canada doesn't have nukes, nobody is touching us. Nobody screws with Japan or Australia. Smaller powers develop
nuclear weapons because they know that aggressive and openly hostile empires like the US will invade them otherwise.
If the choice was mine than i would pay our debt form a military alliance with russia and china. Than focus on making the US prosper. Due to
hackers making bad presidents have tons of votes we cant do # about it.
You're living in a delusional fantasy if you think the US should or would strike a military alliance with its primary rivals, or if they would even
consider the same. In order to form a military alliance with another power, you need a common threat. What do you think is the top real threats to
the US? Russia and China. Russia's top threats are the US and China. China's top threats are Russia and the US.
You're blaming hackers for your presidents? You're presidential campaigns are a popularity contest where the top candidates receive an unlimited
amount of funding to run campaigns to give the American sheeple the illusion that you live in a democracy.
All im asking is dont blame every us citizen for what their government does thats like me saying Russia is weak because their government is
Not true though.
No actually that isn't a good analogy. Blaming every American for their government is the point; they tout democracy, they spread democracy around
the world through bloodshed and bombs, and their own country is not democratic because the American people are designed to be unable to engage in
intelligent thought, which represents a threat to their clearly fascist government composed of the elite that clearly dictates everything.
Endwar is a nice game but the wmds are unrealistic. a nuke would wipe out a city not a part of it. If there is ever a third world war i hope im
not alive because nukes will be used and the aftereffects will send humanity towards extinction.
Endwar is just another stupid Tom Clancy propaganda tool. Tom Clancy has stated many times that he thinks the US is superior to everyone else and
foreign military forces are all junk. His games and stories are a joke, and he is a bad reference for anything to do with realistic military
Thats what will kill us if we can not stop spending money if that will ever happen i am moving to Canada or Europe.
We already have too many morons here. You think Canada is some safehouse to run to when you can't handle your own fascist government? You come here
and you'll either be shipped right back only to be manhandled by your own government or you'll live your life out here among Canadians, and we really
don't care much for US warmongers.
I mean EU can not due a retaliation nuclear strike.
I don't know what world you live in, but in my world the EU most certainly does have a nuclear strike option. Just because they don't have thousands
of missiles doesn't mean the ones that they do have can't work.
Without the USA this world will be a bleak place.
Your posts are extremely hard to read. I must admit, your jumbled and highly uneducated sense of military force and global politics is so piss-poor
that I can barely even think of where to start. I would not be surprised if you're actually paid to post this stuff intentionally... Didn't you once
say that you are aspiring to be a military tactician in the US forces? Scary, in my opinion
