LavenderWolf: North Korea is the perfect example (currently) of a country that could be massively improved with shock-and-awe surprise carpet bombing.Not the civilian areas obviously, but the areas that pose a threat to the south and of course the leadership needs to go.The US's fleet of stealth bombers (Most of which are classified as fighters for some reason) could do it in a few sorties.
LavenderWolf: El Dudereno: firemanbuck: shower_in_my_socks: Here's an atom bomb test as seen from Los Angeles some time in the 1950s:[www.retronaut.com image 800x624]It would be tragicomical to see Lil' Kim launch a nuclear missile and have it successfully cross the Pacific Ocean, only to land harmlessly in a desert wasteland far outside of Los Angeles./more photos of atom bomb tests seen from LA hereImma call BS on those photos. No tests were ever done in the California Mojave desert...they were all done in Nevada or New Mexico. The blast cloud wouldn't appear that large from the LA basin for a detonation several hundred miles away.It's probably Vegas.I know for a fact that there's no way that's LA, anyways.If you even could see a nuclear blast from LA, it would take up maybe one or two degrees of the horizon. No atomic blast has ever been so large that it would be seen from that far away and take up so much of the sky.
Weatherkiss: Arkanaut: Last year, F-22 Raptors, B-2 stealth bombers, and B-52s were used in the drills. The B-2s are capable of carrying nuclear weapons.Pretty sure B-52's are nuclear capable too -- they were built for the job.Fred Schneider is kind of a beanpole, I don't see him being able to carry a nuke.
cousin-merle: I didn't know women's breasts could do that, but there's a lot I don't know about women's breasts.

Cymbal: b2theory: Cymbal: Got to justify that exorbitant military budget somehow.Look at the total casualty count from WW2. If we assume that total US military hedgomony makes it impossible for a country to use its military for any gain, you could say its worth every cent.Even if that were true, which I very seriously doubt, you can't tell me the US needs to spend as much as the next ten largest nations combined? That's just absurd.
