  • I have always been undecided about the potential use of Nuclear weapons.

    Not whether we should or should not have them. They are here, so that argument is already null and void!
    Not whether they should or should not be be used. Only someone with a psychotic aberration would think that they should ever be used. So that argument is already null and void.

    No, my indecision about the use of Nucelar weapons is whether I'd prefer to die in the first milisecond of the explosion, before even having time to register what's happening or feel pain. Or whether I'd prefer to survive the initial attack with enough strength left to hunt and seek out the 'MF's that thought it would be a good idea to use them in the first place!!

    Might take as much as three months for the slugs to come crawling out of their subterranean bunkers but I would like to be right there, at that door, waiting for them. I might have to join a long line of course, but I'd be there.

    At least, that's how I used to think, when I was a single man. Now, I have a wife and two boys so they have to be factored into the equation and, although it's not something to dwell on or think about too deeply, they three would, of course, come above all else.

    When all is said and done though, I certainly hope we never, ever see the likes of that depicted in the photo here. The fallout, I believe, would be something entirely different to what the politcians and senior military commanders expect it would be. I hope it never happens - For their sakes!!
