    Saw this on Yahoo news the other day. You can create or choose a nuclear weapon, detonate it in a variety of ways. Airburst, ground and see the damage it would do in casualties and injuries. Even a suitcase bomb in New York City would result in more deaths than 9/11. One of missile choices are the weapons that were based in Cuba during the missile crisis. Powerful nuclear weapons that can easily take out one city after another. Depending on the height of the airburst is how far the nuclear fallout will travel. The bombs detonated in Hiroshima and Nagasaki are very small compared to what was created after that. Click on the Nuke 3D which uses Google Earth for more graphic displays.

    I actually would choose where to live based on the possibility of a nuke of some sort rendering my property worthless for a time, or killing me and destroying it. Why take the chance?

    Growing up in the 60's and 70's I convinced myself that these weapons would never be used against humanity again.
    I now believe I will live to see at least one or more detonated in my lifetime. Probably terrorists.

    Check out the great documentary on nukes called 'Trinity and Beyond', narrated by Captain Kirk.

    The good news is I am out of the Tsar Bomba effects zone, even fallout.

    Alex Jones basically claims one was already detonated in the Ukraine. Russia is poised....they have shit to look forward to, the way things are going. Putin will put Obama in his place before his country fails. **or so the preppers say... I dunno.

    I do think that there is a possibility of one being introduced, with all the crap going on over there in general. Or a suitcase dirty bomb on the East US coast.

    We are one manic-depressive dictator on a weekend bender away from total annihilation.

    How many nuclear explosions do you think there's been since 1945?

    Take a wild guess...
