    Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Kerry say that we shouldn't worry about North Korea and we should concentrate on China?

    Bah. They have enough for maybe two nukes. If they dropped one on us, the Korean Peninsula would be obliterated. :)

    Is it just me, or did I not really pay any attention to what either candidate said?

    Nope, me too. They were both colossal idiots. I could have learned more by watching pro wrestling on TV.

    didn't we know they've had this crap for years?? well, maybe i was the only one who knew but i swear we've known about it for a while now. *shrug* they haven't used them yet... i think they just want a position of power and a bargaining tool. but, why build it if you're not going to use it?

    A lot of people worldwide think they can back the US into a corner because we have such a heavy deployment around the globe.

    they're Wrong.

    when I get home tonight, I'll tell ya why.

    they have em to keep bush from attacking them...

    or at least thats their theory...

    edit: if north and south korea stopped jerking each other off long enough to collaberate they would become a real economic power on the global scale...

    Hell, I want nukes for the exact same reason. :ph34r:

    If they're honestly just equipping themselves and making themselves a nuclear power, and don't intend on using them offensively, then there's really no problem. Whether that's the case or not is the question though.

    If need be i'm sure the US can take on the world. we have the power to end any conflict that we are currently engaged in, we just don't use it, for "humanitarian reasons"

    That was 15 years ago.

    And yes, other countries have similar fleets. Ours is the most comprehensive, well trained and experienced.

    Those are just the subs. There are ways that the US can take out targets from Space. Then the sci-fi like things like Beam Weapons and the possibility of weather control devices. OF course, I'm not going to cuont them, but It wouldn't surprise me.
