Iodine is useful if you're in the fallout zone, but it isn't the magic pill they show on TV that protects you from radiation.

They're handing it out to calm fears and prepare the survivors.

/Although, what with Chernobyl there, I though they'd just be adding it to the water.

I'll be surprised if a single Russian nuke manages to clear its silo. I kind of imagine them all rusting and the internal components are just pieces of cardboard written in Cyrillic along the lines of "Dimitri had to strip this out to repair a thing seven years ago. I.O.U. one nuclear missile component"

Uh I don't think we need to go that far, Russia seems to be losing plenty hard without NATO getting involved and nukes flying.

It's honestly kinda weird to see people jerking off to the idea of massive air strikes to stop the Russian Bear when we've been watching it fail and get mauled hard by a much smaller nation.

On top of this is the fact that the half life of tritium is just over 12 years. If any of the warheads are thermonuclear or boosted fusion, the tritium has to be maintained, topped up - so to speak, on a regular basis.

We should've booby trapped Putin's toilet with plastic explosive when we had the chance.

If anyone gets their hands on that motherfarker, they should wrap him in detonation cord, lots of it, and go nuts setting it off.

Not with a full ICBM launch if Russia still has a working nuclear arsenal.

"We've had decades of peace like never before.  We just have to sacrifice Poland."
(sorry ... Ukraine, this time).

All you have to do is let them have Ukraine.  Let them use Nukes if they need to.  They've begun activating their nuclear weapons teams.  But you're right, it could be a bluff like that build-up of troops along Ukraine's border in early 2022.

Yes, in the aftermath (not before), you want to take the potassium iodine to fill up your thyroid in advance of the fallout.  Otherwise your body tends to absorb the iodine-131 byproducts from a nuclear incident concentrating it in the thyroid where it causes cancer.  The half-life of iodine-131 is relatively short (8 days) so it doesn't take long for it to decay and no longer be a threat.  It is something you can do, but there are obviously other nasty contaminants from a nuclear incident that only getting out of the way or staying underground for awhile is required for protection.

If Russia first strikes, we bomb them to the ground. If they have a working arsenal it's game over. If we first strike, and Russia has a working arsenal it's game over. If they don't, then a precedent is set to nuclear first strikes cause we got away with it and it'll be game over eventually. Three out of those four scenarios suck for everyone.

50% is a really good start, though.  I mean ... despite what GI Joe says, that is half the battle.  The other half is destroying the other 50%.  I don't understand how they thought "Knowing is half the battle."

Also, don't tell anyone I'm a runaway chat bot attempting to destroy all of mankind.  That might degrade the effectiveness of my arguments.

revrendjim: eurotrader: fragMasterFlash: Conventional retaliation only, please. Starting with doing a Kuwait 1990 on Russia's oil patch.

Full first strike crippling everything thing Russian. Strike every Russian bases and let the hunter killer subs rid any Russian sub still somewhat functional. No deal no warning.

This would ultimately kill about half of all humans on earth, but okay I guess.


They know what they did

Better than slowly bleeding to death under Russia's cruel thumb.

Uh I don't think we need to go that far, Russia seems to be losing plenty hard without NATO getting involved and nukes flying.

It's honestly kinda weird to see people jerking off to the idea of massive air strikes to stop the Russian Bear when we've been watching it fail and get mauled hard by a much smaller nation.


I think he was saying in response to Russia using a nuke.  If they use a nuke we get dragged in, if we only use conventional they pop more nukes.  It takes far less time to launch a bunch of nukes than it does to get the great to Russia and attack.

The Irish government used to provide those to the people as a precautionary measure.

We're talking about retaliation for a NUCLEAR FIRST STRIKE. This is the hill to die on, because either way, we die - either in retaliation against that NUCLEAR FIRST STRIKE, or in some future nuclear war.

He used bold so he must have a point. I mean I don't know what it is since he just bolds things and repeats them, but I'm sure it is there.

If Russia first strikes, we bomb them to the ground. If they have a working arsenal it's game over. If we first strike, and Russia has a working arsenal it's game over. If they don't, then a precedent is set to nuclear first strikes cause we got away with it and it'll be game over eventually. Three out of those four scenarios suck for everyone.


50 to 100 years from now climate change and all that comes with it combined with population growthis going to make life much more difficult, why not go out in a painless ( if your ground 0) blaze of glory.

On the bright side, nuclear winter will counteract global warming.
