    @Tetsuo137: @dieAntagonista: Now you guys need to be fair. Why wouldn’t you want to be able to obliterate the planet with the push of a button?

    @Tetsuo137: Because, even though as individuals our goals may vary a little, in the end, as a whole, we are all greedy, we are all megalomaniacal. In this world, we all suffer from the need for more.

    Or something like that.

    None of these can do any long term damage to the planet. It will always go on. All those are good for are wiping out sections of life which by some accounts and depending on your perspective may be a good thing.

    @Tetsuo137: Nuclear weapons have prevented countable loss of life. Pre-1945, there was basically a World War every generation (counting things like the Franco-Prussian War, the Napoleonic conflicts, etc.). Now we’ve gone over 60 years without any major conflicts between developed countries. Why do you think that is? Do you really think its because of the UN or because we’ve matured as a species? Its because everybody knows that there are only two real options: peace or mutual annihilation.

    @HoChunk: And that attitude would vanish if you saw your best friends, family, wife, husband etc, slaughtered by the people those weapons were going to be used on. War is inevitable, now i don’t know about you but i live in the real world. And it sucks because just like war, the real world is fucking hell. If i defend myself i kill, if i don’t defend myself i let others and even myself be killed. How can you peacefully speak to those who refuse to acknowledge you as a human let alone give you the respect that they would… Read more »

    Yeah people we get it. war is inevitable. I get it at least.

    So. it still sucks. don’t tell me that you think it’s ideal that way just because it also saves lives.

    I don’t blame the people who invent, nor the people who go to war as soldiers.

    But you can’t make me like brilliant greedy geniuses who only use people as their little marionettes to become more rich.

    And we’re not getting anywhere if everyone approves of everything that has to do with war.

    You fools.

    @thelotuseater725 Wow, all that thin-skinned bluster to say…virtually nothing? Conflict is inevitable & life is unfair!? Whoa…DEEP, man…that should be, like, a zen koan or somethin’! It’s this simple: Only sheltered shit-for-brains who’ve never experienced the miseries of war firsthand –WAR, not “conflict” (and if you have to have the difference explained to you, don’t even talk to me) would joke around with the notion that these things are desirable & funny, like the posts I was responding to were. Armchair Generals whose closest encounter with a real-as-rain corpse are the ones they rack up on Medal of Honor can… Read more »

    Well die you bring up an interesting point. I assume you are speaking of Privatized Military Corporations who more or less make money off of conflict(I recommend you play the Metal Gear Solid series of games if you want to explore the ramifications of a PMC world.). For the most part the corporations Don’t make as massive of a killing off of super weapons sales as you would think. Things like Battleships, solid state laser weapons, advanced nukes and air superiority fighters are actually a drain on their profits. Most of the money they make is spent on raw materials… Read more »

    @HoChunk: First off, if you read what i said and actually pondered on it (instead of acting like an asshole) you would see that i elaborated on why witnessing a dead child firsthand would be largely ineffective. Now here is a fun fact about me. I lived about twenty minutes outside of New York City. I was in sixth grade when 9/11 happened. From the third floor of my school i was able to see the World Trade Center, and on that day i saw it engulfed in flames and what looked to be small black dots falling off of… Read more »

    @nyokki: Of course –and fuck them the most. I was answering those who make light of it, which remedial-English thesis-author ‘telotuseater725’ might understand if he can get over the sound of his own voice for fifteen straight seconds.

    @HoChunk-
    Give him a break. You heard him, he was in sixth grade when 9/11 went down (and he thinks living in NY that day is somehow equivalent to experiencing war). Give him a few years of adulthood, and he might start being able to sound coherent.

    @WistfulD: Whatever. The irony is that he chose to take statements directed at others –ones that largely sympathize with his own POV– as some kind of personal insult. Predictably, when the real insults were delivered he spazzed out in this paroxysm of 9/11 I’ve-seen-the-true-face-of-humanity bathos. Either way, I’m only to happy to have aided his little catharsis. Been there, and it’s all part of entering the wonderful world of grown-ups.

    @nyokki: Okay, but I haven’t, and since his first comments are addressing me, specifically, I take them as read.

    @HoChunk: I disagree with AUS BUTTs initial assessment of the effects of these weapons. The modern day iteration of these weapons CAN, in fact, inflict massive, long term damage to the planet, especially given the yields and numbers in which they currently exist. However I also have to agree with nyokki wrt what I see thelotuseater725 trying to say about your contention that seeing a dead body would be sufficient motivation to curtail their use. Everyone deals with these things in their own way. And humor about it is just as valid a coping mechanism as grief. You’re argument makes… Read more »
