This way to the Third World War.

Why does modern warfare 'creep up' on the public.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/oct/27/uk-to-deploy-hundreds-of-troops-and-aircraft-to-easter...

Necrometrics estimate the total deaths of people who died in all the wars, massacres, slaughters and oppressions of the Twentieth Century to be around 200 million but if this lot kicks off, we ain't seen nothing yet.

Other 'good news' stories to follow. Crazy2

Russia say this rocket could wipe out the whole of the united kingdom, if true this must be very tempting to use, for a while now many people say putin is just flexing his muscles but how long for ? I think he is capable of kicking of another war. 

Russia seam to be doing alot of stuff at the moment to peev countrys off.

A finnish friend of mine tells me that russia is sending jets into finnish airspace everyday now, and that many finnish feel that russia is going to invade them. And maybe he speaks some truth > http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3851326/Finland-sees-propaganda-attack-former-master-Russia....

Another thing i wondered about is, according to the news russia can home upto 12 million of its people in underground nuclear safe bunkers.

If there ever was a nuclear war where would we all hide Tongue

Re: This way to the Third World War.

It's pretty stupid to try to wipe out entire countries, because what's the point of kicking another country's backside if you can't take the land afterwards? Plus, there's the Mutual Assured Destruction thing, so they launch at us, the world returns the favour... Grin

'Hundreds of troops' will be the least of our worries.

Makes you wonder if what we have is so great afterall.

 

This country has a lot of faults.. including not giving a stuff about its own population enough to provide nuclear proof bunkers underground. They only made them for the VIPs... the old fuddy duddys who won't be repopulating the land etc.

Seems to me that the former USSR and current Russia may well have an attitude problem but at least they gave a damn enough to think of the people. Our countries have a "every man for himself" attitude with regards to the end.

I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

It's not always about land per se, it's often about resources.

Re: This way to the Third World War.

Would you want to survive the chaos, destruction and anarchy that would follow a nuclear armageddon?

I certainly wouldn't.
