US WAR PLAN: Talk about Thermonuclear Bombs; But, Use little Nuclear Munitions

By       (Page 1 of 4 pages)   3 comments

(San Francisco) May 11, 2010 - Politicians and talkers of all sorts drone on endlessly about Global Thermonuclear Weapons and suck all the oxygen out of a room when you're talking about any other subject.

Reliable sources say nuclear war targeting requires about 300 actual nukes. The thousands of nuke weapons in the inventory in addition to the required 300 are pointless overkill for politicians to prance around about. They go on and on about reducing the gross number of nukes that are ready to go. It is all an absurd and ridiculous theater for ignorant civilians who are fooled into thinking politician X or Y has done the world a favor.

It is great for fast talking politicians. Nuke weapons talk builds Fear. It is great in the run up to elections. Fear makes people vote stupid. It is the same everywhere.

American Liberals and conservatives can't handle the truth about nuclear war. Nothing wrong with that. Most people can't. People will talk in circles forever to avoid the truth or just plain go and hide.

The Pentagon, the American civilian political leadership and the CIA led anti-nuke front groups encourage the confused, mislead and beguiled American people to talk about global thermonuclear weapons all they want. Ever helpful officials will even happily send all kinds of slick PR to "facilitate" energetic, endless, pointless discussions about thermonuclear weapons. Weapons that will never be used.

Why do they do that?

Well, actually it is because the big thermonuclear weapons from the ever useful B-61 Dial-A-Yield right down to the 155mm atomic cannons that would kill or main almost everybody on Earth are a convenient diversion from the real Nuclear War American Military Forces are tasked to fight in the Middle East, Central Asia and Asia right now every day.

The DOD and the American political and economic leadership have no intention of using the thermonuclear bombs Hydrogen Bombs, though. They are cover for the actual, on going, 20 year old, covert Nuclear War being fought with hundreds of thousands of tons of nuclear munitions like the weaponized uranium 30mm shell and plain old dumb bomb. Not to mention the very high tech, patented and JDAMed GBU 39; but then, it is just a skinny version of a dumb bomb that can fly.

In overall terms of radiation, though, the Nuclear War on the Middle East, Central Asia and Asia is the equivalent of hundreds of thousands of Hiroshima or Nagasaki sized Nuclear Bombs. Even those weapons, way back in 1945, were just a big depleted uranium poison gas bomb with a very small built in nuclear device for dispersion.
