Uzi, what is the likelihood that the huge and enormously tangled problem of missile interception could be solved by just putting big warheads on the interceptors? What is the likelihood that the teams of engineering PhDs working on missile defense have ignored your brilliant insight?
Listen, Uzi, a warhead is not a system. It takes an integrated system of sensors, command and control, and interceptors to defend against a missile attack. The battle management software alone would cost billions.
The interceptor warhead is the easiest part of the problem. At this late date, the DoD still hasn't come up with a reliable decoy discrimination technology. Thus, any serious attack can easily saturate the defenses with decoys. Remember, you can't shoot decoy interceptors. Every one of yours costs $10 million. Every one of the attacker decoys costs $1,000.
Unfortunately, the US ABM obsession falls into the same category of nonsense as penis enlargement. It is stupid and unnecessary, especially when there are many other unstoppable ways to deliver a nuclear device.
You would prefer everybody dead to American defeat, wouldn't you?
Here we have the pure essence of the American Psycho. This man is calmly typing in his computer that he would rather have every human being on Earth die rather than have America suffer a military defeat. Now that would be a glorious fiale for us, wouldn't it?

Yes, those cowardly French lost hundreds of thousands of soldiers in WWI, not like the brave Americans, who arrived in the last year of the war."
You sorry bastard!
A little bet of truth migh thelp here.
20% of federal taxes goes to defense.
15% debt ineterest
20% welfare and similar expenses
20% goes to old people
25% for MISC.
To put things in perspective.
600,000 died in one battle during WW I
No. Don't think Bush was in on the WTC plot. However, after the fact, there seems to have been a lot of cover-up about how much aid the 9/11 conspirators had from Saudi officials. Also how much the Isreali spies operating in this country might have known about what was going to happen, and how much of that they did or didn't choose to share with the US.
The Saudis and the Isrealis are NOT OUR FRIENDS.
