MWK: "Even if 2,000 nuclear explosions occured over 24 hours instead of over 70 years - it would probably be survivable..."

Nowhere near 2,000 devices are required. One EMP device, detonated at high altitude on the US-Canada border would cause so much damage, it would cripple the US"

I agree. I was not talking about damage to human societies - but damage to the biosphere so that it was made unlivable for mammalian life (incl. humans) . I'm very au-fait wih EMF effects - I work in the tech field and fully appreciate shielding unshielded mpu's! A fe well placed EMF payloads around te world would cripple international trade and modern economies - absolutely. But that is absolutely an entirely different thing from killing all higher vertebrate life on the planet.

If an EMF strike happened badly affected socieites would be rexuced to living a Bronze Age existence. - with a few mod cons. Pre-2000's diesel engined vehicle would still work for example! So would most tractors. Enough books would survice so that we would retain our tech knowledge to allow many people to ive as they would have in the 1940's before transistors and then high density IC's so dramatically changed or lives.

"..Chinese imports to the US would not slow down: they would entirely stop;.."

China would defntely not want that. Chinese and cash are like diabetics and insulin.


That's "all nations", as in "The United Nations", or "the UNSC".

That doesn't leave much to the imagination. In the past 25 years, the US has led coalition attacks on Iraq, Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq again, Libya and ISIL -- none of which are nuclear powers. Matters will be qualitatively different, when a UNSC-mandated coalition attacks nuclear-armed Israel..."

Don't you think the message is getting out - that islam is a bloodthirsy fascist cult , with many of their 1.4billion baying for the blood of 16 million Jews worldwide? And that the UN is a sham and is being often commandeered by vicious islamofasists trying to get their message of ignorance and hate out to a cynical world. I know so many people who've had at look at the whole Jewish/muslim issue - and it's quite clear to them that Israel is surrounded by intolerant, insane fanatics - determined to 'open up the gates of hell' - as many of them have boasted.

I can't see Western powers wanting to help them. After all it was the Brits who enabled the creation of Israel 100 years ago. And a resurgent Christianity in Russia and the number of Russian Jews in Israel (and Russia) makes it unlikely that Russia will really get behind wanting to attack Israel.
