Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/8066615.stm

    Do you think that there exists a connection between the war in Iraq and N.Korean nuclear program?
     
  2. I think that because the west is powerless to halt Irans Nuclear programme, N. Korea can see the West's weakness. On the other hand N. Korea & Iran can be deystroyed very quickly if they did launch any Nuc, i am sure there are plans to deal with these Pain in the arrse countries :wink:
     
  3. Shouldn't it be: N Korea 'conducts "nuclear" test'?

    I mean if they develop their nukes with the same material as their computers and cars they'll probably torch a paper rocket.
     
  4. Not really. It's just the inevitable proliferation of nuclear weapons.

    With small, unstable states that are ruled by small, unstable men obtaining nuclear weapons, we must also accept the inevitability of nuclear attacks taking place. It won't be the world shattering exchange of thousands of warheads that was feared during the cold war. The sky will not be dark with missiles.

    The North Koreans may throw one or two over the border if they can get the warhead size down to something smaller than a house.

    The Iranians may have a go at Israel, secure in the knowledge that Allah will protect them from retaliation.

    Most likely, I think, will be a limited exchange between India and Pakistan.

    Then there are the terrorists. I heard a US official being interviewed on TV about a year ago. He stated that the US government anticipates a nuclear explosion in a US city within the next decade. Neo-con propaganda? Perhaps, but the fact that American police are routinely issued with radiation detectors suggests not.
     
  5. Another nuclear Land mine.

    Look at the plus side, North Korea can be gotten rid of in one go, we can confirm the capability of the D5, and no one will miss Japan, fcuking weirdos, anyway :D

    We could ask someone else to produce manga porn, don't think it would be the same somehow though.
     
  9. Now, suppose that Saddam had nuclear weapons (just few bombs). Would he use them againsts invading American troops on own territory? Would anybody blame him for it?

    Likely our American friends would not unleash the war in Iraq being aware about real nuclear weapons in Iraq.

    Why? what is the reason? They love their children too and don't think that ruling elites in these 'unstable' countries consist of idiots. Far from it.

    They think this way: Iraq showed that the USA can invade any country that is unable to defend itself. But nuclear weapns would make US attack improbable, in fact impossible. Well, we create it no matter how expensive it could be.

    Why do you think they would do it?

    Oh do stop wittering complete and utter rubbish. Do you not have a job or something else you could be doing instead of posting such bollox on here? At least put it in the NAAFI where it should be and not in CA.
     
  11. As ever dear friend you highly appresiate my modest efforts. I'm very pleased by your high estimate. Meanwhile the tanned mut from the White House barks

     
  12. If it's anything like their last test, this one won't work either!
