yet another pointelss waste of life

another day and another cowardly attack by the so called warriors of god http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/world-asia-30491113......
if only the stupid people creating excuses in an attempt to justify such actions could see they were actually creating the so called persecution they claim to be acting out against .....

Re: yet another pointelss waste of life

Someone creates something for the common good and someone else turns it into a weapon.
Maybe we should stop research into nuclear fusion....what a weapon that would make. Sad

Re: yet another pointelss waste of life

its fission you should worry about ....

the problem seems to be the same though, the military or police have a crack down on the terrorists after they get pinged for doing something wrong and there response is to massacre innocent people and claim its a retaliation ...
that's retarded logic, if they wanted to kill some people then target the attack at the uniformed personnel they are apparently retaliating against, targeting children just ensures there are a lot more people wanting them dead than cheering them on .....

Fission we have, fusion has the potential for far greater weapon power.
Children are soft targets. Remember it's cowards we are talking about, children don't shoot back.

Re: yet another pointelss waste of life

indeed but being cowardly worked well for the IRA, they still focused the majority of their attacks on uniformed personnel (but because they were short sighted morons they also attacked civilians) often picking soft targets like the car bomb when your at home and unarmed....
attacking children is never going to help your cause no matter what bigoted group you belong to and yet its a simple lesson so many of such groups never seem able to learn .....

p.s. https://www.google.co.uk/?gws_rd=ssl#q=fusion+bomb https://www.google.co.uk/?gws_rd=ssl#q=fission+bomb
we have both but combination versions are even better.....the real danger of a reactor going critical is that instead of a fission bomb we would have a fission fusion one of a size large enough to flatten the entire country and that's just from the smallest reactor plant we currently have in service never mind the larger units planned for the future ......

If you have the money you can buy almost anything so it will not be long before they acquire this type of thing and many more lives are lost.
To kill innocent children irrespective of which side is doing it is wrong  and no sane or rational person could ever do that irrespective of what their beliefs are

Re: yet another pointelss waste of life

If you look back at our own History and the things that were done to innocent people we do not come out in a good light, a look in the various castles and museums at the instruments used gives an idea of how evil people were and even today we hear of possible innocent people being tortured in Guantanamo  Bay or the abuse of children in our own times.
Makes me wonder if a large majority and mostly male have some inbuilt tendency to hurt others either for pleasure or power.
Some might take issue with the words large majority but hardly a day goes by without some atrocity either being carried out or discovered.

But thats just it, they are sane and rational and living amongst us according to the government. Terrorists have been leaving and going abroad to fight - making their own choice to go and kill people and then come back here and live their normal peaceful life as if nothing has happened.
For all you know you could have walked past one of these people in the street - even saying hello or being served by one at a checkout and you'd have no idea.

From an energy reactor point of view, Fusion is less of a concern as without containment a fusion reaction stops almost immediately.  The biggest problem is the reactor will be FUBAR and leaked Tritium can cause problems.
From a weapons point of view, all themonuclear weapons (ie. h-bomb) are Fusion bombs, with a Fission trigger (and additional payload, just for kicks!),  and we've got them already!

The only problem with that scenario is that the only fuel used in Fusion reactors are Deuterium and Tritium,  there is no fissile material around.

Re: yet another pointelss waste of life

which reactors do you know of that utilise a highly unstable hydrogen gas ion or heavy water (to give deuterium its colloquial name)
uk reactors use CO2 as the cooling medium and uranium or plutonium as the fuel rod material, primarily because of the reactor core substrate being prone to problems should it crack and water be in the reactor .....(which is what happened to Chernobyl which was a water based coolant of the same reactors we use)
as far as I'm aware tritium is used primarily in GTLS devices  and deuterium aside from being made famous by the Nazis who made a huge amount of it in a man made lake that got sabotaged during the war hasn't been used as its too dangerous for mainstream applications

Re: yet another pointelss waste of life

I thought we were discussing fusion reactors and there aren't any working yet and they don't include fissile material

Development of Fusion power is 40 years away and has been for the last 40 years lol
