MAD was based on the idea that the US or Soviets wanted to annihilate the other but didn't because the other side would destroy them.
It appeared to work because we are alive and the citizens of Hiroshima are not.
The truth always was that the US did not want to destroy Russia and the Russians wanted to save up for a house in Malibu.
It was in a way a con by those who made money from war on each side.
Their advice was to spend more.
In any orgy of wasteful spending the US Congress is always world champion.
When the Commies went broke they gave up the Cold War and we "won"
At the end they supposedly had a LOT more nuclear capability than the US but it made no difference.
Russians leaders kids still wanted to go to Disneyland.

In WW2 Japan one side really did want to nuke the other.

This will happen again even though one side will lose New York and the other will have every city and village burned to the ground and their cause forgotten.
MAD ain't gonna work when one side really wants to nuke he other.

Right, MAD won't work if a fanatic believes he'll be in heaven with 72 virgins.

Funny enough, Pakistan is sending women to Syria to have sex with the Jihadists. Just amazing. They say there are lines of hundreds of men waiting their turn every day.

Funny you don't hear anything about navy yard shooting from the gun (assault type weapon) banning crowd. If someone is bent on mass killing for the media's sake, just about any firearm will do.

A Remington 870 pump seems to work really well. A lot of good a ban on assault type weapons would have had. The nut cases will find a way regardless.

30,000 gun deaths a year--you think you can find a few Republicans and Tea Baggers too?

Remember that in 1865 the Republicans were the party that were responsibility for eliminating slavery. They worked hard to offend nearly all black people in America. But the numbers never lie, that is one of their few recent successes.

Not according to this unbiased, neutral, well-researched, credible, fair 'n balanced, authoritative web site.

Mr. B. conveniently forgot to include this:

"No NRA member, Tea Party member, or Republican conservatives are involved.

SOLUTION: It should be illegal for Democrats to own guns."


How right is that thinking?

Actually, it's pretty funny. Mikey should have written it. Laughing Laughing Laughing

bard,

A Remington 870 pump 12 gauge shotgun with a removed plug (7 shells), pumping/shooting at two shots per second (not hard to do) will be spraying projectiles at a rate of 18 per second. Who needs anything else? The only down side, reloading.

"The 00-Buck (generally pronounced double-ought buck) in a 2 3/4″ inch shell holds 9 lead balls which travel in excess of 1300 fps. Each ball is .33 caliber. Think about it………that is 9 .33 caliber lead balls traveling at over 1300 fps. Devastating."

You bet shotguns can be lethal killers. However, in Colorado the most shells you can magazine is eight. Extended clips in "assualt weapons" hold considerably more.

Really, the largest threat to life is hand guns because they can be concealed (except for Sbard, who can conceal a rifle is his pants "is that an AR15 or are you just glad to see me"?

Every time we have a mass killing, the conversation revolves around keeping guns from lunatics and eliminating assualt weapons. This distracts from the larger issue that most of the deaths involving guns are single killings as a result of robberies, accidents, suicides, gang activities and crimes of passion.

I'm still waiting for the 1st Tea Party member who massacres somewhere. I haven't even heard of a domestic dispute from a T.

Just joking about the AR in the pants CB. Rolling Eyes
