The Stealth Hippopotamus: Mutuality Assured Destruction (MAD) only works if both sides want to live.


"sovereign right of every nation on the planet to engulf that planet in a hellish inferno"
Arn't nukes mostly just a blast wave? Is there really a lot of fire? I know Hiroshima and Nagasaki burned but I thought that was mostly do to buildings make out of bamboo with household fires in them.


Yes, when you split an atom, you
Don't release energy! Instead you release a soothing power of mint berries! The Japanese, in their euphoria, left their irons on and burned down their cities!

Stop getting your physics lessons from Indiana Jones.

I mean, if they wanted to kill you, they could still kill you with a knife! Banning nukes will do nothing.

Mugato: Theaetetus: You asked why anyone would want to take over their country, not why anyone would want to improve the quality of life of its citizens or take on their infrastructure. That you're moving the goal posts doesn't make my answer to your earlier question incorrect.

And what did taking over Iraq do to the price of oil?

Did you really think that these companies were struggling as a result of the war?

The Stealth Hippopotamus: With as many handlers as that guy has odds are he thought he wrote it. Well as much as he writes anything. Which is to say, he signed it.


stuffy: If its true. That's some serious derp right there.


fireclown: Kim is pretty much right though.  If you don't have nukes, it's hard to claim that you are a sovereign nation.  They DO keep people from invading you at will.


FuryOfFirestorm: Kim Jong Un: "The only thing that stops a bad guy with a nuke is a good guy with a nuke" Good idea, Kimmy. Let's test that theory out by dropping a nuke on your place.


Some of you may need to get your satire meters checked.

StrangeQ: Ambitwistor: Ever hear of nuclear winter?

So what you're saying is that if we want to stop global warming...


Something similar has been proposed (without the actual nuclear war), under the name "aerosol geoengineering" or "solar radiation managment".  Turns out to have some drawbacks ...

nekom: Mugato:
2) Then again, who are we to say they can't have nukes? What exactly is the authority we have over them that says, "We all can have them but you can't"? Not that I want them to have them because I think Kim Dong...whatever is a lunatic I just want to know what authority we have over them to tell them they can't.

What have we done about it? One of the more overlooked blunders of the Bush administration was Bush stating that we absolutely would NOT tolerate them having nukes. They tested a nuke and.... crickets. But hey, thank god we got Saddam out of power, right? Anyway the message we've sent is crystal clear: You can test nukes, and we won't do a thing about it, other than shaking our tiny fists and having the U.N. write a strongly worded letter or two.

If the shiat hits the fan, having a couple deliverable nukes (which they do NOT yet have) isn't going to turn the tide, it's just going to increase the casualties, which I'm sure Worst Korea is VERY concerned with, but the USA doesn't really have anything to worry about for now


You lefties are just pissed Bush didn't start another "illegal" war for you to chant about.  There is NO foreign policy that Bush could have followed to make you happy, so stop pretending how disappointed you are about this choice.

At least Obama came into power and shut those Korean nuke tests down.  He showed the right wing how foreign policy is DONE!  There hasn't been a Nork nuke story in forever.  Just like Iran.  Go Obama!

Mugato: The US and its allies would destroy them in any conventional warfare.


It's really that simple. Same with Iran. As long as they think someone is going to protect them from Western Aggression TM they will talk and do as they please. If they lose that feeling life would change.

don't sound so happy about it!

Mugato: Firstly, I realize this is satire but it is a real issue so

1) Who the fark wants to nuke North Korea? The US and its allies would destroy them in any conventional warfare. Do they think anyone wants to take over their shiathole country? North Korea sounds like the 350lb chick with the wall eye and clubbed foot who wants a bottle of pepper spray because she's afraid of rape.

2) Then again, who are we to say they can't have nukes? What exactly is the authority we have over them that says, "We all can have them but you can't"? Not that I want them to have them because I think Kim Dong...whatever is a lunatic I just want to know what authority we have over them to tell them they can't.


I'm pretty sure the reason the US and China both allow the status quo that is North Korea is because neither nation wants to be responsible for cleaning up that mess.  How many millions of starving people?  A complete and total lack of 20th century infrastructure?  Yeah, lets march right in and claim it.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: Hey, look what I found!




I remember the old footage of houses getting sweep away. I knew fire was invoved but I thought it was mostly the blast wave. So sue me I didn't know.



As you can see this house burned to the ground. oh no wait, that looks like a blast wave.


lack of warmth: You know, from Kim Jong Un's point of view.

With as many handlers as that guy has odds are he thought he wrote it. Well as much as he writes anything. Which is to say, he signed it.


It's both. So you get partial credit. The shock wave and the heat. If you look at the picture-the roof is on fire.

The fact that people eyes were melted and reduced to ash shadows on walls indicate temperatures were not balmy.

Ok, that's actually good satire.  Actually, I'm not sure it's really satire when I can imagine NRA hacks actually saying something like that.
