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.


He can barely carry a tune!

I didn't know women's breasts could do that, but there's a lot I don't know about women's breasts.

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.

What a hedgomony might look like.

shower_in_my_socks: Here's an atom bomb test as seen from Los Angeles some time in the 1950s:

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 here


Imma 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.

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.


Why would you doubt it? Every military descision made by every nation(both our friends and enemies) starts with: "What will the US do?"

I'm sure the only reason that the Norks agreed to cross-border family visits last week was so they could be outraged this week and cancel them.
