Eclipse Posted May 30, 2001 Report Share Posted May 30, 2001 quote:I agree that saving lives is important but the way I look at it, by spending the money on other social programs such as health care instead of these ABMs, it would save a lot more lives. I personally find this statement a little humorous. This may seem a little heartless, but you are worrying about a couple million people who *MIGHT* need a visit to the doctor, and saying we take money away from a program that *MIGHT* keep millions of people people from dying outright and many more from dying later because of the radiation involved in a single nuclear strike. Seems to me that working on ABM's will probably save more lives in the long run. quote:Tekrebel: If I was a "rogue country", I would just sit there and laugh at those americans spending a fortune on these ABMs while I send a few professional terrorists with small nuclear bombs to do surgical strikes on US cities. I'm sure you would find it quite funny if someone decided to "surgically" nuke your city too. BTW, IMO there is nothing surgical about a weapon designed to wipe out cities in one shot. I call that a blanket strike. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
