Only thing that bugs me about that show is how unrealistic it is. However, if it went for realism, all we'd see every week is people dying from radiation, and that wouldn't be much of a show.
I agree. And....most of them would be dead by now if it wasn't for the mayor's son. I only got into the show after we figured out how to use On Demand, so I watch it when I'm bored.

Think I am kidding?

HAROLD Ford, a handsome 36-year-old from Tennessee, has become one of the sensations of the mid-term elections in the US and a reason why Democrats are a good chance of winning back control of the US Congress for the first time in 12 years.

But if Mr Ford, already a US congressman, wins his bid to become a more powerful senator, Australia had better watch out.

Because according to Mr Ford, Australia has an interest in nuclear weapons and is part of the broader nuclear threat to the US.

I think that you need absolutely certainty that something is going to go down before killing a whole heap of innocent people.

I still am absolutely apalled at how the world has stood by and watched the us commit mass murder under the flag of democracy, so i wouldnt be surprised if nothing happened if the us dropped the bomb on an asian country, after all its happened before

Well, we also did it to a European country. The Dresden fire-bombings in Germany, I believe it was? We just didn't use an atomic bomb. Is there a difference?

The argument can be made that the use of the atomic bomb saved millions of lives by preventing the need for a land invasion of the main islands of Japan. Of course, it also opened the whole nuclear can of worms too, I grant you that.

But you could also make the even wilder argument that even more lives were saved by the wars that may have been prevented because of the fear of M.A.D.

Not that I'm making that argument or anything.

Fascinating thread, 80s.

I would not retaliate.
