if we were hit with a nuclear bomb

And it was discovered that "a few" government officials were involved in the smuggling of weapons grade plutonium that were used to make this bomb, how would you respond. Keep in mind that the country could be Egypt, Pakistan, Russia, or maybe even a country we thought was our friend. Do you retaliate in kind on an innocent population or exercise restraint? What if another goes off after a period of restraint? Do you ever get to the point where you unleash the dogs or do you accept your fate?

what if the country was the United States, how would you respond if you were another country?

Has any other country used atomic level bombs on another? I forget.

Let me jar your memory then. We did, in a World War we didn't start against an enemy that would fight to their last man. Of course we know the Japs wouldn't have stooped as low as to use a bomb like that on us. As far as the nuclear terrorsts attack is concerned, my money says its a sure thing in the not so distant future.

May be, but it's not like we are all innocent. We have the largest nuclear arsenal in the world and try to tell everyone else they cannot have one, even one nuclear device. And only a few years back for the first time, America sank to the depths of attacking a country who never attacked them and called it a pre-emptive strike.

And you can guess all you wish about what the Japanese would or would not do. But we know what the US DID do.

I`m hoping your not one of those individuals who believes in banning handguns but believes that every nation has the right to a nuclear weapon.

Let me jar your memory. We are the only nation that has ever, ever, ever ever ever used a nuclear weapon on an enemy. The idea was twofold: first, it was an arguably necessary and probably justifiable step to end the war and prevent further deaths; second, it let every other nation know that we are the most ruthless and ballsy country out there. And I promise, other nations haven't forgotten.

Now terrorists . . . who knows.

I'm hoping you're not one of those individuals that believes every man and woman is entitled to be armed except those you don't like.

I'm guessing you wouldn't like it if the government said "we get to have guns, but you don't."

This is what they do to certain nations regarding nuclear weapons.

No sir, we should all arm to the teeth regardless if your a nation or individual. I work in the warship sector and world strife keeps me gainfully employed. I also have no problem if you want to wear your sidearm in public, who knows you might catch one of the badguys in the act.

not to make it sound like it was 'ok' to drop the A-Bomb, but we have the truth straight from the mouths of the Japanese on their intentions. they would not have surrendered and were willing to decimate their populace. The young and the elderly were being trained with sharpened sticks to be the expendable shock troops in the event that we landed on the mainland

I think it's pretty well known on this board I have NO problem with people owning handguns.

I may not agree every nation should own a nuclear weapon, but I find it ridiculous that the US thinks THEY make the decision on everything.

I fully expect Obama to find out which Muslim king or cleric orchestrated the bombing, rush right over on Air Force one, and bow his head really low and apologize for having angered him so much that they resorted to nuclear weapons.

If one nuke goes off, it's Fallout 3 time. Effing Judgement Day. There's no way in this day, that only 1 goes off. It'll be interesting to see if humanity survives.

I dont know. I mean i agreee that the chances of just ONE going off are slim. Because is one nuclear warhead going to take us out? No if we get attacked first we can expect more. will it end us i doubt it. i see us retaliating and wiping that country off the face of the earth but at what cost... it's hard telling what's going to happen in the future.

Seriously, you want to compare our use of nuclear weapons in WWII to the current threat of nuclear proliferation?

So you are saying then WE were the guys with the big bombs and all was peachy? What's the difference? Seriously, the last worry on my mond is Nuclear proliferation because it's kinda like the weather, we can talk about it all we want and can't do a thing to stop it.

Correct. As evidenced by Saipan, Kamikaze pilots, and interviews, Japanese considered it more honorable to die (no matter how un-winnable it was for them) rather than surrender. It took 2 A-bombs and a declaration of war from the USSR for them to finally surrender and even then there were high ranking officials in the Japanese military that wanted to fight on until the last man (or woman or child). It was Emperor Hirohito that had the tie-breaking vote to surrender. Crazy to think that some higher ups in the Japanese military would have wanted to keep fighting even with A-bombs falling on multiple cities, the USSR invading from the west, and the US invading from the south and east. Casualty estimates for an invasion of Japan were about 1 million allied soldiers + millions of Japanese military and civilians.

It's never right to use an A-bomb or nuclear device but had we not used it, I might not be here today. My grandfather was on a navy ship heading off for an invasion of Japan when the war ended.

Best argument ever against dropping those bombs on Japan.

But leave it to you for the most arrogant statement you could come up with. " thank god all those Japanese women and children died so I could be born to clog up the message boards!"

ok...that was hilarious :lol:

if you want to get an idea of the scope and scale of devastation to both sides, check out the casualties from the battles between Russia and Germany. Between the Battle of Kursk and Narva close to a million people were killed many of which were civilians

1. You've earned a spot on my ignore list. Ya it was a long time coming...

2. Me, a lot of people on this message board, and most of Japan wouldn't be here if the Japanese had not surrendered. So a he11 of a lot more "women and children" would be dead than the ones that died in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

And who knows, maybe Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy ,Charles Manson and Jeffrey Dahmer would never had been born. See how fun it is t play " lets just pull stuff out our ###? "

YESSSS! Steve is going to ignore me!! now my socialist plans for this board will go unchallenged!! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
