modern warfare right now is one of the most technically advanced processes out there, sure you still have your ground troups and fighting vehicles wich are still the backbone but; what about laser guided bombs, unmanned fighters, several hundred goverment satalites able to read the liscnese plate off your car, the ablity to push a button and sentance possibly millions of people to death(its happened) with just one of the U.S.'s nuclear warheads (thats one of 8,000 currently). With the advent of flying drones and recon robots, and much much more along the line of drones only at the most 20 years away. what has become of war? It is quickly going from brave men dieing for the love of there counrty to a man in a base flying or drone or puching a missile launch button. it does have it ups though, no moring families sad over the death of there son or daughter, soldiers also cost alot more then robots, troops take mounths of training and time to ready for battle but robots could be there the day they are built. But what happens to the other guy? the one without the safistication of robots and high tech weapons our troops our armed with and missiles; do we just kill them one by one?one of todays nuclear XM ICBM missiles wich holds 10 independent nuclear warheads coulds destroy 1/2 the entire population of Iraq (this post is not about Iraq). Will we live in fear of the goverment whaching us? knowing what were up to? will other countrys do the same? or will it be filled with lawlessness, revolutions and rioting out of coruption and greed. Like Albert Einstien said "I know not the manner of how WW3 will be fought but WW4 will be fought with sticks and stones". P.S. : i wrote this on the spur of the monment and i know I left alot out and some of it might not make sense but ...o well im not taking the time to rewrite

Disclaimer Now while this is the type of post that could cause an issue, I am going to let it run for a bit. How does war save hundreds of sons and daughters ? Would they not be as dead if any other country fired Nukes also and hit the USA's Shoreline ? So instead of them going into battle, they get killed whilst reading the morning paper. There will ALWAYS be soldiers ready to die for their country. Technology is not strong enough to support that type of war. This is not the age of the " Terminator" movie. While Albert Einstein may have been correct, he may have been wrong also. NOBODY wants to see a WW3/nuclear winter. wiping hundreads of billions of people across the world, and then trying to survive the next 50-75 years without benefit of the sun. Who cares how many Nukes the US has. Who cares who has what .... This is a game without Nukes, without robots, without lasers and so on. There will be no government when this happens and certainly given the numbers of unprepared people in the world, there will be less to worry about by the time the Holocaust ( If and When it) comes.

First off

[QUOTE=HairySheep]But what happens to the other guy? the one without the safistication of robots and high tech weapons our troops our armed with and missiles; do we just kill them one by one?

They are the enemy. You kill them by any means necessary. And I am glad that the enemy does not have anywhere near our means of technology. I assume we are on the same page, The US & EU vs. Islamo Fascism (as seen in Pre-War Iraq, Iran, Syria, and other Middle Eastern countries/provinces)

However, perhaps it was just my tone from your diction, but it sounds as if you’re sympathetic to the opposing force, that which opposes our troops/cause?

Overall, Many Many more lives exist today because of nuclear weapons. Without a nuclear deterrent, the enemy could simply over run much of the free world. However we save a near incalculable amount when we construct these multi-mullion dollar nuclear devices. Much cheaper then paying a soldier, and housing, feeding, clothing, training, retirement, ect... This allows that individual to work in sociality in a different way. A Less costly way at that.

As far as your "Big Brother" 1984 thing, well I’m not sure if you commented on that because of the recent US wiretapping by the government. It’s just my opinion that if your a 'suspected' terrorist, We will be listening in on you. Please don’t confuse this with calling your grandmother in Ohio. Every case in which this has been used was in a certified situation.

And I am glad that the Government watches our lives. In fact they don’t do it enough; you can cross the boarder, buy bomb components, and other wacky things without much, if any, interruption by the government.

DynamixFirst off Without a nuclear deterrent, the enemy could simply over run much of the free world.

Well I can't really agree with this, sure there may have been a more fighting and deaths, for instance without the nuclear weapons the US would have had to fight thier way across Japan, but the other big baddy of the time, who we can't name here due to the bad word dictionary, was defeated without the aid of nuclear weapons.

The free world, well much of it anyway, is already ruled by the bad guys, ie: Zimbabwe, North Korea and etc etc etc etc, it's just that unlike the free world of the good guys, the bad guys just can't get it together to make any meaningful alliances, but the good guys can and do.

If no-one had nuclear weapons the world would still be very much as we see it today.
