I wonder if I'll get the day off?

First problem I see, their convoy is going to use I-70. I-70 is broken. Major repairs. Bridge replacements. Texas Tea. It's not going to be "heavy traffic". It's going to be "Parking Lot".

Also, there are signs all over the entrances forbidding heavy vehicles. Not the best place to move "2.6 million pounds of cargo".

Maybe I'll just take the day off.

um, yeah. indiana, you're all big and bad.

personally, typing this 6 blocks from the white house, i expect the responsiveness of DC will be: a brief second of glare and then nothingness.

so indiana cares about responsiveness after a nuclear explosion? here's my responsiveness. i'm gonna be like the answer, my friend...blowing in the wind.

As long as they stay away from Indy.

I'm having a biatch of a time already because of "Super 70."

Jacktards and closing my exits.

One can hope...

I work at a site that would be one of the first hit, and I'm getting a kick out of all these replies.

Really, actually I do. I work at Boeing, where all their mainframes and other servers are.

I know I'm at ground zero :)

If a nuclear bomb hit, would anyone even notice in Gary Indiana?

If I had anything to do with it... YES.

I hear Indiana and Pakistan are bitter enemies... or something like that.

There are actually a few things in Indiana that could be a target: Crane Naval Base, Gibson Generating Station, Indianapolis (for logistic reasons). Yeah, it's not very likely for a bomb to be dropped around here but I'd rather that they had a plan than didn't. At the very least, this gives them practice in case some other type of disaster (tornado, earthquake, massive fire, etc) takes place.

They have to be doing this for a reason, there must be a real threat. Hoosiers, our time is short.

Hoosier ladies, you need to make the best use of the time you have left. Gmail in profile.

If anyone ever nukes philly or pittsburgh, i'll be fine. Annapolis getting dusted might cause a bit of a problem tho.

For the Small States, perhaps, but Alaska is the "Air Crossroads of The World."

Why is it the people who are most scared of terra and nukes are people who live nowhere near a target?
 
2007-05-08 08:39:20 PM
Lots of targets in Indiana:

No I can't go back there...

I think we all know why Indiana is a potential target:

2007-05-08 08:41:54 PM
Think about it, no one would see it coming.
 
2007-05-08 08:42:06 PM
It's not so much that Indiana is a viable target. Rather, it's just a place where holding an exercise there would be more practical than say in downtown LA, DC, or NYC. It's just a test of military readiness to such an attack.
 
2007-05-08 08:42:24 PM
Heh, when I was in Toms River last week, putting an antenna on the roof of a water pumping station, there was a loud, town shaking boom. not sure what it was, but the water company guys with me asked me if I had any idea what it was, I suggested that maybe Oyster Creek popped it's cork. Man, they did not find that joke funny...
 
2007-05-08 08:42:42 PM
Is this gonna be like the simulations they had in NY on 911 or in london the same day as the subway thing? Just askin.
 
2007-05-08 08:42:57 PM
Call in the SIMUVAC team. We have numbers. The data are hard to read, but there is no substitute for planned simulation. And remember you're not here to scream or thrash about. We like a low profile victim. This isn't New York or L.A. Soft moans will suffice.

Hmmm......

Has somebody been watching a re-run of The Sum Of All Fears and got a real big case of the OMG's? Or is it just easier to fall asleep on duty in an NBCD suit?

"Lots of targets in Indiana:"

Yeah. Terrists are going to pass up all the easy pickin's on the coasts to go terrify Indiana. Suuuure they are.

Terrists never heard of Indiana. It doesn't exist. Safe as it can possibly be in America. Except maybe North Dakota.
 
2007-05-08 08:45:44 PM
Indianapolis is a pretty big city. I live much closer to Cincinnati, Ohio though, might actually be in the range of fallout from a hit there. Luckily the wind blows easy generally.
 
2007-05-08 08:46:25 PM
*meant east, not easy.
 
2007-05-08 08:47:25 PM
A good enemy would attack were you least expect it.
 
2007-05-08 08:48:28 PM
I've got a friend who works at the Pentagon. She says that every so often, she'll have lunch at the little counter in the courtyard: the Ground Zero Café. If any place would be nuked first, it would be that courtyard.

/the terrorists hate us for our outdoor cafés
 
2007-05-08 08:49:04 PM
Screw Indiana. I hope Chicago sends all it's trash over there. Oh, we send it to downstate IL. Screw them too! I know this because of a wrongful death case I defended. The manager of the landfill informed me that searching for the weapon involved moving about 4 tons of trash. I did not pursue it.

In the area where I grew up in rural Indiana, there's a memorial to some farmers who sat up in a treehouse and watched out for Korean bombers during the Korean war.

Indiana heard these nuke-havin' terrorists want to kill some 'American fools'.

Actually in the 80's and early 90's, ND had a assload of nuclear weapons. It was one of the worst places to be.
I know, because I grew up there.

The answer is clear: the government knows that the Hajis hate Peyton Manning as much as the rest of us, but that the Religion of Peace (TM; business method patent pending) may be prepared to take action.

A nuclear detonation at the Indianapolis 500 would have a substantial death toll (attendance of over 270,000).

Doggie McNugget: In the area where I grew up in rural Indiana, there's a memorial to some farmers who sat up in a treehouse and watched out for Korean bombers during the Korean war.

Korean bombers? Wow, that is messed up. I guess the Red Scare was in full force at the time. When I legally immigrated to America I moved to Oak Park, Illinois, which I later found out is the primary place for Soviets to target an ICBM. It makes sense as all of America's railroads go through Chicago and it (at that time) had the world's busiest airport.

Places like Indiana are where smart people look for real solutions to problems. Why is there not a tag that says 'Indiana'?

I remember years ago that it was in the newspaper that Indiana was on the russian first strike list due to the drug manufacturers - primarily Eli Lilly (if I spelled that correctly). If there were no drugs of the several types they produced it would hinder our recovery.

Well, I hope you're right, and they'll go after the ad agencies and arbitrageurs on the east coast, and the important Hollywood celebs on the west coast.

But it's possible that they know about Crane, and Rolls Royce, and Allison Transmission, and other important military targets in Indiana. Or, God forbid, the Newport facility that stores VX nerve agent.

Should we rely on their ignorance, or prepare?

The terrorists hate us because of our Super Bowl Championship!! And the Indy 500. They hate that too.

Suck it terrorists!! And all you Indiana bashers!!

Wabash: There are actually a few things in Indiana that could be a target: Crane Naval Base, Gibson Generating Station, Indianapolis (for logistic reasons).

According to the Free Internet Press, the terror target list contains 8,591 possible targets in Indiana, including the Amish Country Popcorn plant. Glad to know we can still have popcorn after an attack :P

Laugh at it now, but when indiana gets hit then we'll see who's laughing
