    The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant compared to the power of the Force.

    And then there is this.

    Russia unveils 'Satan 2' missile, could wipe out France or Texas, report says.
    Go to nuclearsecrecy.com/nukemap

    Pick a city in Texas, set your nuke as an airburst, choose Tsar Bomba from the presets and click detonate. Then zoom out so that you map shows the full state. Those 2 relatively small circles around your chosen city are the blast zone. Everything else is still alive.

    Russia has better ways to spend money than building a supernuke that far beyond the largest nuke ever tested.

    Now if you just want irradiate Texas, that's easier. Switch out airburst for surface detonation and you'll irradiate a decent sized area but the odds of Russia having spent the resources to build a single bomb that can instantly flatten Texas are small.

    The reports are misleading at best.
    "It is not simply enough to know the light…a Jedi must feel the tension between the two sides of the Force…in himself and in the universe."
    ―Thon

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

    it is all mostly hype because that is how the cold war went,a Neutron bomb is a different matter,as its goal is not destroying buildings,but killing people with high level,short lived radiation

    Never imagine that broken things that are fixed will stay fixed. Labor unions - very nice. Until they become for profit companies working in their own self interest, just as governments do.

    Everything depends on the eyeballs and actions of those in the trenches. When they stop watching, those in positions of trust betray them.

    Eternal vigilengence is the price of freedom. That applies not only to those with guns, but to those armed with votes as well.

    When the will of the people as described through a vote isn't respected, consequences must result.

    Fortunately, there's a vote for that, too.

    War with Russia? I think it's a red (get it? "Red"?) herring - we're not at war with China... Massive interstate wars are a thing of the past. Now, wars are economic, or wars are extrastate. Not that that's nice, but Russia isn't likely to be dropping nukes on us, or us on them, unless a lunatic gets control of the buttons.

    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    Russia wants to be a big dog again,and be a world power. Putin misses his glory days as a member of the KGB...China is trying to be a Capitalist without seeming to be a capitalist...And us of course are still that sleeping giant they all talked about before we woke up for a bit before going back to our nap. Do not poke the giant,that is sleeping so well.

    Re: They are willing to destroy this country

    So how close have the Russian warships actually sailed to the US? 100 miles? 50? Try ten (for the UK) : http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016...oyal-navy-sha/

    Has there been an incident? No, not yet.

    That's not really new news though. Their "Spy" ships used to hang out near our sub bases and major port's all the time. Their combatants never really came to close to our shores and their birds stayed fairly far off shore as they made their way to Cuba. Though I have heard and read a few articles that said they were trying to re-open their facilities in Cuba which would potentially open those things back up. They've also re-established some of their arctic stuff which potentially puts them closer to our western side and over Arctic approaches via Canada.

    I figure we'll go back to a lot of the stuff that happened during the cold war with near misses, cut off's, over flights, buzz off's and shadows & tails at sea and in the air. Never was in the Army or Air Force so don't really know what was done in that capacity. All in all though a lot of Cold War practices and mentality / procedures are being re-established on their part and we've closed a lot of our stuff.

    That's the possibility, right there.

    I'm still PTSD'd from the Cuban Missile Crisis. I spent the first few years of elem. school looking under my bed for Castro.
