Re: Is the nation really threatend?
With all the nuclear weapons currently out there in the hands of people that want to use them to kill millions of people, I'm not sure that any country in the world is safe. I mean, if a nuclear bomb went off in a place highly populated in the United States, such as New York City, the entire city would fade into oblivion in the blink of an eye, people, houses, cars, everything would burn, millions upon millions would die.
Now here's where the real problem begins. We have no choice but to Nuke back, and then their allies would rush to their defense and attack the United States, the allies of the united states are Nuking the allies of the country that launched the missile. That much nuclear activity over a short period of time could have irreversable consequences for the world's climate, radiation could become a widespread cause of death in countries we're not even intending to attack, and the entire world would be at risk.
The world as it is today is unstable, that's all there is to it. We have enough nuclear weapons to destroy the world many times over, and pretty soon there will be NO WAY to remove all of them, more will be produced and even smaller countries could obtain their own nuclear arsenals. So yes, the United States is at a lot of risk right now.
