Default WW3 Please SAY NO!

Here are the 10 countries with the most nuclear weapons:
Russia (6,257)
United States (5,550)
China (350)
France (290)
United Kingdom (225)
Pakistan (165)
India (156)
Israel (90)

Comparing the Little Boy Atomic Bomb used in WW2 versus todays nukes--

1945 -Little Boy = 30,000,000 pounds of TNT

Today--100 Kilotons = 220,462,262 pounds of TNT -

experts say there may be more powerful nukes out there! Its scary what mankind has created!

I'm going to refrain from getting political, but for the sake of this thread, there's not going to be a World War III. I have a better chance of becoming Pope than World War III happening.

That fellow was lucky to survive just losing a Thumb , thousands of people were instantly vaporized with 5,000 degree blast of heat with the very low yield Little Boy bomb.

Deterrent. A first strike by Russia for instance might target and destroy a good number of our weapons before they deploy. The idea is to have enough to still retaliate in force, no matter how heavy the preemptive first strike. Not to mention, a retaliation may involve targeting multiple other countries (and our main adversaries are nations with a lot of territory.)

It's not a pleasant thought, but there is a certain logic to it.

Call me a conspiracy theorist, but I'm looking at this differently than the MSM's current narrative. The worldwide criminal cabal has used Ukraine to launder money for years. I think there's a whole lot more going on there than advertised, IMO.

Lot of mental gymnastics going on here, I'm not even going to attempt to decipher or rationalize.

Curious....who's "The Worldwide Criminal Cabal"?

Also, do you think Putin...who is to crooked Russian Oligarchs, what Roger Goodell is to NFL owners, is attempting to rid the world of money laundering by invading the Ukraine?

Asking for a friend.

Ok, I take it back. I'm attempting to decipher.

I did read the paratroopers, possibly including Spetsnaz, who landed at Hostomel Airport, near Kyiv, got taken to the woodshed. If Marco Rubio's twitter is accurate (and I think it is; he sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee) then the invasion has already taken longer, and cost more, than Putin expected.

I believe this is the correct place on the forum for this discussion? 'WaterCooler Talk: Off Topics', no? Sorry, I just read Leon's 'no politics' rule. My fault.

Call me crazy, but the curtain is slowly being pulled open everyday to reveal who's been hiding in the shadows.

The Criminal Cabal consists of, among others, the Central Bankers, the WEF and Klaus Schwab, the Rothschilds, the Rockefellers, and the Windsors (some would include the Vatican on this list, to my initial surprise as I'm Catholic).

The Buffett, Soros, Gates, Bloomberg, Bezos, Zuckerberg, and the 'political leader' type folks in our world are simply their foot soldiers carrying out and pushing their agenda towards a One World Government/Global Reset, a cashless Digital Currency, population control, etc.

IMO this is more about what's happening in the world than flat out politics. Please try to steer clear of outright political statements. And for anyone not wanting this stuff on the forum, don't read it.

Don't worry that post is not political. You did leave the reptilian and grey alien overlords off your list. Also needed a random reference to bigfoot being real.

No, I read his post, and he listed the typical left-wing boogeymen. I was wondering if he viewed the right-wing boogeymen the same way. I'm surprised you didn't notice that.

Guys, for every cruise missile Putin lobs into the Ukraine, he's strategically taking out another money launderer used by one of those dirty filthy left wing soft hearted cabals of criminal reptilian snowflakes.

He's what a real hero looks like. Standing up to the MSM and lizard people everywhere.

I don't necessarily view the folks I listed as 'Left-Wing'. They might be, but I don't know their political views or do I give a flyin' flip.

The Central Bankers don't care about politics, they just want to control everyone with debt. That's it.

The rest of the folks I mentioned are much higher on the food chain than your guys, including Trump. We can get in a pissing match over it, but who honestly cares? I don't. You have your opinions and I have mine. Take care.

Michael Crichton once said “Life is Hard, but it’s harder if you are stupid.”

With that in mind I commend some of you for everything you’ve overcome in life.


A sovereign nation was invaded by its neighbor, hundreds of thousands of refugees are fleeing their homes, people are dying because of lunacy, a nation is rising up to defend itself and you jerk offs are debating conspiracy theories Fox Mulder couldn’t come up with if Hannibal Lecter sautéd his frontal lobe for Scully. It’s idiotic. Luckily most of us live in America so you’re welcome to have those opinions. Luckily people who aren’t shaded on the short bus spectrum can call it for how densely moronic it is.

Not interested in a pissing match, just thought you were doing the old "The Liberals are going to destroy the world" malarkey. But you are talking about something different, so carry on. At the end of the day, we probably can both agree that another stupid war is starting, and more young men (and women now) are going to die. And that sucks.

Hey Irv, how do you and your Russian comrades spin the following to demonize the US and justify Russia attacking Ukraine?

2. The Russian Federation, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the United States of America reaffirm their obligation to refrain from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of Ukraine, and that none of their weapons will ever be used against Ukraine except in self-defence or otherwise in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations

Excerpted from Letter dated 7 December 1994 from the Permanent representatives of the Russian Federation, Ukraine, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the United States of America to the United Nations addressed to the Secretary-General

Of course THEY don't want anyone to know about the reptilians.


Say, is that a black Cadillac pulling into the driveway? Gotta go!

I don't understand what this thread is getting at; Putin doesn't take direction from a baseball card forum. At any rate, with his invasion spinning its wheels, Kamila Valieva's fall at the Olympics was not the worst flop from the Russians. The roughly 1,000 Russian paratroopers who landed at Hostomel airport lasted less than a day before they were wiped out by reservists and a handful of foreign volunteers. By comparison, at the Battle of Arnhem, 750 British paratroopers held out for nine days against elements of two Waffen-SS Panzer divisions.
