    read "one second after".



    Spoiler:








    one of those shit hole countries packs a few nukes onto cargo ships. they park them off the coast of the US and that way they dont have to launch them very far at all. no advanced warning.

    sure, our subs would blow the shit out of them after the fact but that wouldnt undue what has already been done to us. And they would be laughing their asses off all the way to hell, they dont give a shit if they are dead or not as long as they take us down with them.

    Found this thread because I was looking to either buy an older "junker" find a way to maybe to make my Tacoma fare a little better. Then I found this thread - and many of the folks that believe this is all fodder for tin foil hat wearers - well it seems there are a LOT of tin foil hat wearers that know a lot more than me. Not specific to Tacomas but did find some links that some might find useful on the subject...

    And I find this an interesting document - what the government IS planning for:

    The worst the third world countries can do to us with conventional weapons or tactical nukes (they don't have the good stuff like MIRVs) is act like terrorists, with localized damage. It takes a lot to destroy the electrical grid or destroy the highway system.

    Let me know if any of you would like me to write your name on a rock and throw it into Iran for you. As you can see in the photo I'm on the border and sleep here every night.
