Does anybody reading this remember this little bit of excitement?
Maybe it needs to be investigated?
Mysterious Missile Launch Over California . The prevailing theory at the time was that China had brought one of it's Nuclear missile sub in close and fired a missile away from the US out over the Pacific. There was even a follow up thread posted by Skeptic Overlord on the topic here The California Missile Was A "Message" From China (update: possible hoax)

the funny thing is, china has a population of 1.3 billion, america has 300 million. china has over 320 million fit for military duty.
just crunching numbers, it is more likely china could wipe out every single american citizen rather than the other way around.
i wouldn't be surprised if in 10 years china has 25,000 nuclear warheads. they don't worry what cnn will say about them or worry if they sexually harassed 5 women.
they'll launch a missile at every square mile of u.s. territory.

Look that was just a saying ok? but Iam sure that if every nuclear bomb was fired around the world it would mean the end of the world, because we wouldn't be here.
Yes It wouldnt blow up like this www.youtube.com... I didn't mean it like that and you know it.
But we wouldn't be here, it would be the end of our civilization and many many other species on the planet.
And if it wasn't the end well would you really want to live in it.
But I don't think it will happen I do have faith in humanity I think no is so stupid to fire one even though so many religious types seem to want the "End of Days" to happen.
Heres a good link
So according to these guy's even a regional nuclear war would destroy the planet.
So your statement that I quote "There are not enough nukes in ALL arsenals to destroy the Earth even once" is wrong. Who is showing their ignorance now?

No hyperbole for fear mongering at all, but thanks for your assumption.
But, the question still stands. Why have more than you need? I think the answer of throwing as many as you can at the shield in hopes a few get through would be the best explanation here so far.
And you really don't think there are enough nukes world wide to destroy the planet? I really think there is.....or at least enough to destroy all life on the planet.
But, this is just a thought or theory from me, not proof or evidence. But your comment you state as fact. Any facts or proof on that comment since you are so sure?
