Outside the US, both established and emerging nuclear powers increasingly see nuclear weapons as weapons that can be used in a controlled, limited, and strategically useful fashion, said Barry Watts, an analyst with the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments, arguably the Pentagon's favorite thinktank. The Cold War "firebreaks" between conventional and nuclear conflict are breaking down, he wrote in a recent report. Russia has not only developed new, relatively low-yield tactical nukes but also routinely wargamed their use to stop both NATO and Chinese conventional forces should they overrun Moscow's feeble post-Soviet military, Watts said this morning at the headquarters of the Air Force Association. Pakistan is likewise developing tactical nukes to stop India's much larger military. Iran seeks nuclear weapons not only to offset Israel's but to deter and, in the last resort, fend off an American attempt to perform "regime change" in Tehran the way we did in Baghdad. The US Air Force and Navy concept of "AirSea Battle" in the Western Pacific could entail strikes on the Chinese mainland that might provoke a nuclear response.

    If Iran gets a nuke Bu-by Israel. If Israel thinks they are getting nuked by Iran say bu-by to several Islamic hell holes, including Iran.

    There is no such thing as "limited" nuclear war.

    This would for a time resolve an argument over who should occupy a particular parcel of land. The answer would be no one at least for 100 years or so.................

    Maybe or maybe not! With a neutron tactical bomb you could just fry them where they stand and have less fall out of long lasting radiation.

    This contrasts with standard thermo-nuclear weapons, which are designed to capture the intense neutron radiation inside the bomb to increase its overall yield. The technical term for the neutron bomb was "enhanced radiation weapon" (ERW). In terms of explosive yield, ERWs were about one-tenth that of a conventional fission type weapon. While significantly less in explosive power, they were still much more potent than any conventional bomb, so damage to material was reduced and not eliminated.

    One significant drawback of the weapon is that not all targeted troops will die or be incapacitated immediately. After a brief bout of nausea, many of those hit with about 5-50 Sv of radiation will experience a temporary recovery (the latent or "walking ghost phase" lasting days to weeks. ZomBies

    It'll be WWI all over again starting pretty close to the same area of the world as it did back then. This time instead of a prince getting shot it'll be Iran bombing Israel, then Israel bombs Iran and then the rest of the world choses sides and the war is on!! Except this time we won't be the last ones in the fight we'll be on the front line from the get go waiting for the allies to help.

    Or maybe we'd just continue to lead from behind.[}:)]
