Japan is proof it doesn't take hundreds of years to become habitable again.
ahhh, no, plenty of areas around that nuclear plant will be unsafe for hundreds of years, thousands in the case of areas with plutonium contamination.
The fact that the Japanese government is doing it's best to minimize the reporting of the true scale, those areas are lost.
The ground will be contaminated as well as the ground water, over the next 15 years you will see the true effects on the environment, much like
anyways, you guys are stuck in WW2 mode. If the Us is going to nuke some country, they don't intend to go live here after. They can easily send in
teams to keep the oil production going, and rape the natural resources. Actually it would be much easier for them to nuke a major city to get the
people out and go in unattended and unwatched to do their deeds.
As well, our weather mapping technology is quite a bit more advanced than back in ww2 (lick your thumb and hold it in the air) so we can, for the most
part, accurately map out radiation release and fallout areas a head of time. We can monitor weather in real time to plan the perfect strike causing
"minimal" collateral damage.
If this war goes Nuclear, the only way it will "work" is if the US and allies strike ALL potential targets in unison. All of them. Anyone who
might be a problem down the road must be dealt with. Because once a single nuclear attack is confirmed, they all go up in the air. So the only
viable nuclear war scenario the US can "win" is if they preemptively strike all potential targets and completely decimate their forces.
This, of course, ignores conventional deliver via bombers and subs, so a retaliatory strike would surely follow, and the US missile defense system has
failed every test.
In the end though, there is only one solution.
The only way to win a nuclear war is to not play.
Care for a nice game of chess?
