|any thoughts on America's response on a Terrorist group actually detonating a few small nukes in american ports/cities? God forbid it actually happening, i would think that the USA cannot play "fair" anymore. one problem would be figuring out who was responsible. Im sure plenty of countries would like to, but i doubt they have the capability or would be smart enough not to. i would rule out russia, china, north korea for starters. Once the mess in Iraq is cleaned up, they are our allies. therefore it would be clear to me that it is the radical/extremists. this points to iran and cohorts. so how do we respond. for one, the american people would certainly cry for blood, much more that the 911 events. so you would have to hit them so hard that it is never even considered by anyone anymore. i doubt the american population at that point would care about the collateral damage of this at this point. an event like this, certainly gives reason to take the gloves off. i would hate to see this scenerio become reality, but at this point, it cannot be overlooked. any thoughts?
