Any nuke subs in the Med, Red, or Indian? Just wondering how fast the Middle East would be a glass parking lot....it would be terrible if we had to wait for ICBM's lauched from the mainland to get there instead of the sub launched variety. Of course the land based ICBM's would give the news crews more time to setup the cameras for a really kick ass final shot.

In short....fvck the terrorists.....

Living here in a Boston Suburb that has a large Islamic population and being close to the Airport I do take this threat seriously

ShinerBurke, think for a moment. Let's say a radiological bomb goes off. How are we going to know what area to "turn into a glass parking lot?" Or shall we just do the whole Middle East? I'd like to say, "Stick with masturbation. It's a whole lot more fun and a lot less harmful than thinking." But, it would be wrong to say that.

I think a good place to start would be SA then isreal and surronding area. After that I'm sure bush can find evidence about who caused the attack.

Well Whitling, think for a moment, what, in YOUR opinion, would an appropriate response be to a nuclear/radiological terror attack? Let's assume it happens in San Fran, but you are out of town on business for the sake of this theorem...

Well, Al, I'd want the government to find out what happened before glassing in the Middle East. Please, let me ask you one question, and please answer this question in this thread. How well has beating up on the Palestinians worked for the Israelis?

Please answer the question before ranting.

I'll answer yours if you'll answer mine :) And since when have I been a ranter?

Beating up on the P's hasn't worked very well for the I's. But it probably makes them feel better, I know it would me. But I'm a vengeful person, I admit it.

My question to you: How well has "beating up" on the Israeli's worked for the Palestinians?

Back to the original premise...you'd be perfectly happy with no response until we "Knew" what happened? 2 months later, we have no idea "who did it". Next up goes New York. Now what response do you want?

PS I'm not saying we should glass the middle east on this theorem...yet.

Yeah it could happen, but then the kind of backlash from such an act would lead to some kind major problems for whomever filled the spot that they could possibly be. The sad part of this all is that there has been such a lull in security over the past years that it could easily happen again. Kind of like the total DA's around here, they are building low income housing 50 feet off a runway from the airport. They claim that double pane windows and extra insulation will provide a quiet living environment. :)
