I wonder if Colorado’s congressman Tom Tancredo was reading Eurotrip?
A few days ago, I asked what would happen if we warned the Islamists that if they manage to set off simultaneous suitcase nukes in America cities, we will retaliate by nuking Mecca. I’m still thinking about this all, I’m not sure what the response should be to a Islamist nuclear attack yet, but I just threw the idea out there. We had a mutually assured destruction pact with the Soviets, if they destroyed us, we destroy them, therefore they were always in check. Since the only thing the terrorists value more than their life is Islam, I wonder if a credible M.A.D. threat would work as effectively as it did with the Soviets, only this time targetting places that Islamists value the most.
This whole issue has been sparked by a report a few days ago from a FBI consultant Paul William that claims Al Queda has acquired suitcase nukes from the Russian black market and intends to detonate them simultaneously in major US cities. I don’t know how credible he is, but I definately think it is VERY possible since this material is out there and Al Queda has the finances to acquire them and our borders are wide open.
On another front, a Chinese military official warned of a nuclear attack against the US if we interfere in their "re-uniting" with Taiwan. I think he’s blowing steam out of his ass, but still worth paying attention. I wonder who is going to buy all their junk if they nuke their largest customer?
