Nukes - What Would You Do?

Here's a big question...

You are the leader of your country. Nukes are headed your way. Do you retaliate in kind?

Either way, your country is obliterated, so...

If you don't retaliate, you are saving lives of innocent people in the country that nuked your country.

However, if you do retaliate, you are, by obliterating that country, thus preventing that government from doing to others what they have done to you.

Don't retaliate. I wouldn't feel the need to prevent that country from doing it to others. If other countries want that one nuked, they're welcomed to make that decision and do the nuking for themselves. Unless they didn't have nukes and explicitly asked me to do it, then I might consider it, but probably not.

Besides, maybe some people of mine could survive. Have you been watching Jericho on CBS?

I'd, umm, get some last lovin' in, eat a great meal, get drunk and hold onto something sturdy.

Serious answer: I have no idea. No, I wouldn't return fire in kind and wipe out that country. But yes something a little more, shall we say 'precisely targeted', to wipe out that government - definitely. How? With what? No idea.

If my country was going to be obliterated by this country regardless, I'd nuke them and hope it will prevent them from doing this to other countries. And I'd also get totally wasted and have sex with everybody whether they like it or not, like Earnie said.

You are joking right? You wouldn't really go around raping people in the last moments of your life would you?

I hope you were kidding...

Great question.

Retaliation would probably set off an unstoppable chain reaction leading to global destruction. Don't and they're free to do it again.

We're fucked basically.


ps. I'd probably spend my last time on Earth trying to get as close as possible to the impact zone. Best place to be in a nuke attack is right underneath the damn thing.

Yes, I really like Jericho. I am in great suspense over the background of the stranger in town (forget his name) and of the main guy (Jake?).

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 wouldn't retaliate with nukes. It'd be curtains for me, that's for sure, but there's not a heck of alot I could do about it.

I hope the guy that told you that nukes were headed our way is not the same guy the said

Saddam has Weapons of Mass Destruction

that it was a slam dunk case

that the evidence is bullet proof
