Default Hypothetical Question About A Nuclear Attack

We just lost seven cities. New York, Washington DC, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, Atlanta and Philadelphia all just went up in a mushroom cloud because al Qaeda got their hands on some nukes.

Stop here for a minute. If you are planning to type out a tirade about believing this is impossible, there's the door. You obviously do not understand the word hypothetical.

My question is this. What do we do, those of us left, in response to such an attack?

My question is premised on the assumption that the military is still intact with full nuclear capability and the onslaught of volunteers ready to defend the country being immense.

How to we respond?

We attack Al Qaeda at the source...drop nukes in any areas that we have sufficient proof of Al Qaeda being there.

A draft will most likely happen.

Default Re: Hypothetical Question About A Nuclear Attack

okay let's assume Al Qaeda defeated US intelligence and humiliated the Bush administration with such an act and pulled a 24...




then total war against the Muslim nation that is directly tied to Bin Laden is the first to go.




now this is an unlikely scenario and I wish this does NOT come to pass

but pacifists must be deported to the nation getting its ass handed to it if even after such a huge atrocity such as losing 7 cities they still preach peace and understanding of the enemy and still talk sh it about their own country killing innocents in another nation

Default Re: Hypothetical Question About A Nuclear Attack

First, declare a state of national emergency, by the prez.
1. locate all known AQ sites worldwide, and destroy them, immediately.
Regardless of location, regardless of 'civilian shields'

2. get lab samples of the various nukes residue, and identify which nation manufactured those nukes- and then either respond with retaliation-
or with investigation and diplomacy, depending on whether that nation had willfully given AQ nukes

3. Reiterate the "Bush Doctrine" that Bush has long abandoned:

if you are harboring terrorists, or aid terrorists- you are a terrorist and will be treated as one.
And 72 hours after that reiteration, start taking out those nations that harbor or aid terrorists.

4. immediately round up and deport all illegals, any whiny liberal that so much as utters a peep will be arrested and charged with treason, and obstruction of justice.

5. secure the borders.

6. immediately send up massive air patrols and whatever nuke detection capability we have to pre-empt any further attacks.

7. All legal foreigners within US territory will be immediately detained, checked out, etc.

8. increase all military readiness in order to implement these procedures


9. implement a new policy of no negotations and no 'talks' with any nation that is evil, or has a despot leader, or who are hostile in any way to the USA and its interests.

10. immediately enact whatever methods and means are necessary to rapidly move to energy independence for this nation.

that covers it I think

declare martial law. simple as that for the duration of the emergency.

if someone is concerned about the government gaining too much power, then they are worrying at the wrong time, wonder what he/she will think once a loved one is lost in a rain of AQ "holy fire"

OR propose this...

"Either fight for our country and gain citizenship or go home."-directed to the illegals.

Just b/c we get owned doesnt mean we should just give up our civil liberties like you have said with point 4.

Point number 7 will be like WWII all over again and that shouldnt be the best option.

Point number 9 is stupid. If you can talk first and clear the air then no need to destroy them. Like you said, you attack the people that aided Al Qaeda.

i disagree about having the illegals fight or else get deported.

while civil liberties can be suspended during war time... best not go forcing anyone (even illegla immigrants) an ultimatum of go to the frontlines and die or.... we deport you and you die anyway

Eh, good point but if the illegals start to become a problem in the US goal in an emergency state like this then you have to do something.

for the most part they stay quiet, take up their crap jobs in the South, and send home their meager $3000 a year salary back home to relatives

aside from the Elian Gonzalez fiasco, one never really hears about an illegal Mexican immigrant causing civil disturbances

im sure there are some killer Asian gangs, but Asians, or Chinese, have this rep for being super brainy and a model minority so their gang problems are largely overlooked.


must be fair and apply this to the Hispanics

If this happens, the best solution is for every other American to shoot themselves in the head.

As a non-American, it would make a lot more sense. No long war, no excessive bloodshed (relative to what this war would bring), no environmental damage, etc.

But Americans only think for themselves. Selfish pricks.

Ok, this was in jest even though killing everyone in revenge would hurt the world even more.

Asians also have a reputation for being "legal"

that was the point right?...

by the way...MS-13 is probably the most violent gang in the history of this country....and they are spreading at an alarming rate. They make Crips and Bloods look like Mr. Rogers.

some have killed children with a machete to get into the gang....sick stuff
