I wonder if the USA has the balls to attack a country that is a nuclear power, and not some third world farming country who have opium farmers (afghanistan)

They bullied down the soviets, north Korea, Pakistan with the threats of invasion, threats which apparently they took seriously. Kind of speaks volumes if you ask me.

Its all about strategy if we have the capacity to shoot down there nukes then we could win. With little to know casualties on our soil. Based on our current tech we could do it water boy.

A nuclear strike on the US mainland would break the stick that the bully uses to beat people with, but it doesn't stop the bully, he just finds a new stick.
Talking about countries like the decision making and power structures begin and end entirely within their own borders is unrealistic. They are chess pieces on the board.

I have this sinking feeling that 'technology leap' has occurred and Russia has been left in the 1990s era when Yeltsin shut down nearly all the defense programs. Game up that means.
If that is true, then take solace in the fact that dominator is the US which is fairly gentle.............not British, German, French or Islamic fanatics or Mongolians...........these countries have been openly genocidal........ although US cannot be excluded from the league of genocidal murderers either. May be it has been only a junior player in this league afterall.

So far neither Russia nor China placed themselves in an adversial position with regard to the US behaviour, so they wouldn't have any need to demonstrate any capability.
I won't be surprised if Syria and Iran are being setup as testing grounds for this missile defence technology. If Russia and China supply Iran and Syria with missiles they are counting on to be effective against the missile defence and they manage to do that, you can expect the US to go quiet for a while. But if their missile defence proves 100% successful, you can see USA go to any lengths including an open military confrontation with Russia and China

Genocide means attempting to wipe out a nationality, race, etc, not waging war over greed or resources.
The US has not committed genocide against middle easterners.edit on 20-1-2012 by RSF77 because: (no reason given)
