by inspecting the fallout they can determine where the plutonium was manufactured, plutonium has almost a genetic like fingerprint... that would certainly give us a clue on what country to be pointing our weapons at....

if Bin Laden nuked us then that would be strange becasue we would have no one to nuke back...I would have to assume that it would be like 9/11 only about 10 times worse. It would take us a year or two to recover and then we would be up and running...

If Japan can survive being nuked twice then we can survive being nuked once....

if you say so... in this day in age?

a nuke is a nuke...we just have 100x more of them now....

now a nuclear missle shoots multiple warheads which create several atomic blasts...

if some one was to sneak one into the US it would not be in the form of a missle and would be the equivlent of the bombs in Japan...the A-Bomb

splitting an atom is splitting an atom...

and there are only two ways to do it:

http://inventors.about.com/library/weekly/aa050300b.htm

There are two types of atomic explosions that can be facilitated by U-235: fission and fusion. Fission, simply put, is a nuclear reaction in which an atomic nucleus splits into fragments, usually two fragments of comparable mass, emitting 100 million to several hundred million volts of energy. This energy is expelled explosively and violently in the atomic bomb. A fusion reaction is usually started with a fission reaction, but unlike the fission (atomic) bomb, the fusion (hydrogen) bomb derives its power from the fusing of nuclei of various hydrogen isotopes into helium nuclei. This article discusses the A-bomb or atomic bomb.

No, in terms of yield, modern warheads are significantly more powerful than the ones used in Nagasaki/Hiroshima...meaning on the order of megatons rather than kilotons.

because mulitple atoms are split rather than just one?

I was under the belief that plutonium is used to split an atom that causes a chain reaction and splits the surrounding atoms...

I guess I could see how if they are splitting more than one atoom at the same time it would be more powerful...is that the general idea?

do you ever think about how divided our country is?

I mean look... me and you are from the same city, we love the Dallas Cowboys, but we don't think the same.

one nuke = bye bye bye to the USA.

example: Rodney King caused L.A. to have riots... what the fu#k you think a nuke could do to our race?

it would desroy the city

like Katrina destroyed New Orleans...

we would eventually get on with our lives...

now if it was multiple nukes like a nuclear winter or something then that is a different story....in that scenero we all die

but one single nuke by a terrorist?...we will be alright...might take a year or two, but at somepoint in time we are gonna have to go to work and feed our families...

most people went to work on Sept. 11, and the pentagon was under attack...

US would probably "invade" Pakistan in an attempt to find Bin Laden.

This is what nukes are now compared to "Little Man" and "Fat Boy". The tzar bomb was the biggest and most powerful bomb ever created. it almost wiped out the drop plane itself.

If US gets nuked, even by one dirty bomb, the world economy will go to shiets. It will be like a world depression. I suspect Iran and Pakistan will turn into a glass parkinglot if they are responsible or terrorist based there or known to be based there takes responsibilty. if russia or China ( doubt China because if they do it it will be like economic suicide) put the kids to bed, kiss the wife, cuz the world as we know it will cease to exist.
