Wear a hat and stay out of the sun for awhile, OT.

Relax until Doomsday, ok? :200:

Some important Americans were swallowing their saliva at the possibility of a limited nuclear war in Iran.

It's not Seattle that's going to be hit with a bomb. It's Libya. Iraq. Syria. Iran. Countries like that.
I can totally see Ukraine being blasted with some nuclear weapons that will last forever -
and be killing them hundreds of years from now. .....bomb dropped by America.

But in Canada we're totally safe, except for the radiation that floats over here. Like from Fuku.
Ukraine is broke, and undertook a war on that portion of the country that provided 30% of GDP. Now a draft, for an army, for a war, for a government that will - get this - implement IMF/EU *austerity*.

It's not doomsday. It's the day and following years that I acquire a whole bunch of land. Besides, who else do you know on here that is mentally ill enough to study this stuff for years and post on it.

It's heartening that you are thinking ahead of this disaster, rubbing forepaws together, crooning "land, lotsa land"

You're Not mentally deranged OT, just an opportunist. :biggrin:

You may be correct. The world is thirsting for war in so many ways. The farther and longer the elastic gets stretched, the bigger the snap back. Don't discount the Seattle /Tacoma area to quickly... The Trident base in Bangor/ naval complex Kitsap would be target number one in any conflict...or number two if one takes the Trident base into account in Kings Bay, Georgia.

Hanford can no longer have a meltdown unless the spent/stored plutonium comes together somehow and starts uncontrolled fission, but yes, it is still leaking into the Colorado River and it's still contaminating at least 130 sq miles of ground water.

On a really positive note, if all the forest fires that have or will be burned in 2018 in BC equalled roughly 200,000 hectares, the burned area would be (initially... but a way ,way bigger burned area ongoing) equivalent to only one, high yield Chinese 4 megaton Dong Feng-5 (DF-5) ICBM detonating over Seattle/Tacoma/ Kitsap Naval complex.
Multiply that with at least 15 detonations on that area...

Something that the article doesn't explain...
The U.S. has already taken out the nuclear warheads (W88 475kt , W78 350kt and W76 100kt) out of some of the UGM-133 Trident II sub launched ballistic missiles (SLBM). Replaced the warheads with a 1000kg conventional warhead in a program called 'Prompt Global Strike' that can use the accuracy of the missiles ( circular error probable -CEP less than 200 m) to deliver a conventional warhead anywhere on earth in less than 30 minutes, where in the past a quick strike using aircraft would take at least 24 hours. 2 or 3 SLBMs flying out of the ocean could easily be mistaken for a nuclear strike, which is what Putin is bringing attention to.

I have seen dolphins airbound that could be mistaken for missiles too. Sleek as warheads.
