    Every local channel news was carrying a story about "what if Manhattan was nuked?" I didn't have much time to figure out what was going on at that point --- I guess it must be the local spin of the story.

    •  I found the NYC Nuke to be a real cynical aspect (0+ / 0-)

      to his answer. Something that I've heard somewhere before:

      "...But we don't want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud."

      Yea, it's a national security thing, I guess.

      Not a fan of that kind of fear mongering. I'm not surprised that the local news picked that part of it up.

           If you don't think ensuring the safety of nuclear materials
        is really important to the security of the entire globe, then you have not been paying attention.

        •  Not at all what I said. What I said is that answer (0+ / 0-)

          was a fearmonger's answer. It was no different than
          "...But we don't want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud."

          Just how is this different?
