So Trump signs a $110B arms deal with Saudi Arabia, I presume so they can police the Middle East? I'm pretty confident this will come back to haunt us greatly down the road.

Welcome back, thread! I wanted to resurrect this discussion because I don't think it fits squarely in the North Korea thread or the Trump thread, despite the discussions that have been going on during the last few days. What I'd like to know is: where do RMers stand on the utility, morality, and use of nucular weapons? Are there any cases in which you think the use of nuclear weapons is warranted or justifiable? Is there a difference between using nukes as a deterrent vs. as a weapon in an already staged war? Are you comfortable with all of the nations in the world that have nukes? Would you be comfortable if any other nations had nukes? Let us know!

this is what i never understood. because we are (insert country of origin) we should be the only ones who have them but (insert country name) shouldnt be allowed to have them


Q: who is the only country to use a WMD on another country, here is a list of 8 countries with nuclear weapons to make it easier (China, France, India, North Korea, Pakistan, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States)

True dat. Plus, a small exchange of nukes is nothing compared to what CRISPR will unleash on the world.

I've got nowhere to go but Louisiana, and that's already a wasteland. :|

There's fallout in central Texas though. Do you know how far Houston is from the New Mexico border?

Is there somewhere on the LA/MS border that you could get on a boat?
