If you could nuke a country?

NO ISRAEL OR PALESTINE! I'm sick and tired of that argument but that being said what country would you nuke only one WITHOUT ANY RETALIATION! I know that there are sh*ton of nukes out there but just make a country dispear...POOF!

None. Knowing that modern nuclear weapons are much more powerful than the ones used at Hiroshima and Nagasaki... I wouldn't wish to bring destruction upon any nation. I'm sure even the bitterest Japanese blast surviver wouldn't want to wish such horrors upon innocent Americans. If anything, I would nuke the whales.

If I were a world leader of a nuclear nation, while my 'enemy' nations would be tempting targets, I'd actually make a mega-statement to the world and my constituents by nuking my own country. Particularly the worst cities. Notably Los Angeles as the first target. My craziness shall make the world tremble! MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

But yeah, why nuke other countries when it'd be much better to nuke your own?

IF I could nuke a country I probably wouldn't.

IF I was forced to choose a country to nuke, then I would try to get the best overallgood out of it as possible - completely end a local ongoing skirmish that doesn't seem to have an end or take out the largest number of people possible. It sounds twisted, but causing the highest number of deaths would hopefully result in a global nuclear disarmament (not likely though cause the nuke powers would all be saying 'no, YOU go first') - failing that, reducing the population of the planet in an effort to obtain sustainability. Every cloud has a B-decay lining.

France.

Inflict the Treaty of Versailles on Germany eh!?! I'll show you!!!

well even if I did have a nuke, why would I nuke israel? I hate the goverments policys towards palestinians but I dont thinking NUKING the entire country, killing millions of civilians of both palestinian and israel backround will solve shit.

its a nuke, it kills people, mostly civilians and children but dumb founded american boys think it would be cool to nuke china or iran or some shit just because they "dont like communists or dictators" so they think the best case of action would NOT be to assassinate the one bastard in charge but rather killing every single living thing with in a 10 mile radius or more.

if anything, i would nuke all of humanity in one big fucking go, no one deserves to live to be honest.

None.

I just wouldn't like the feeling of being responsible for any amount of deaths, no matter where they are, and who they are.

I would nuke Switzerland. Those bastards have had it far too easy for far too long

North Korea. We don't need a land of trolls. We have 4chan for that.

Vatican City, without all the tourists. And this is only because I'd be aiming for the Pope.

Aren't Chernobyl and Hiroshima more than enough evidence as to why we shouldn't nuke a country to begin with? Oh right, hypothetical situation.

I guess if I had that kind of power, I'd go full out and nuke the US. I wonder what sort of 'impression' it would leave on the world. Nyehaha.

Stupid question. Using enough nuclear weapons to wipe out an entire country in such a short space of time would not only be one of the largest crimes against humanity in history - yay for you - it would also wreak terrible, long term environmental damage on the rest of the world for a very long time. Ever heard of the phrase 'nuclear winter'?

Israel. There, I said it. I'm sick and tired of its genocidal shenanigans in the name of its persecution complex. (You don't want people to nuke either of those countries, don't make threads about this sort of thing at all...)

However, I don't think any country deserves to be nuked. If only there were a way to purge a rotten establishment without brute force...

Ireland. I sick of living here for so long. I want to go back to the British Empire. Home is where the heart is. My heart tells me to nuke Ireland so that it would force my parents to move back to England so that I may live there forever more.

You're so horribly misguided you could be a christian. Wow.

I'm sorry, what? Why a Christian in particular? Let's see you say that about Jews or Muslims.

I happen to be none of those. Just a concerned "citizen" aware of exactly the sorts of inhumane abuses perpetrated by Israel. Not that I would actually call for it to be nuked, that would kill innocent people too. As would nuking any country.

FYI, this thread is just BEGGING to turn into a flame-war. I'm honestly surprised it's managed to stay as relatively civil as it has been thus far.

To answer the OP's topic, I wouldn't nuke anyone. No matter how totalitarian the regime of a country may be, it does not justify annihilating its inhabitants down to the last man, woman and child (to say nothing of the radiation that would undoubtedly spread to neighboring countries, resulting in many more deaths from cancer, birth defects, etc).

If I had the power to nuke a country, I would just take over the planet because no government can realistically nuke me so I can just dominate everything. I reign as god-king over all.

But assuming some genie type thing tells me I have to choose a country to get obliterated, I guess I'd probably go for the Vatican.

France. Because fuck them.

Seriously though, none.

Sealand. Sitting there being smug and thinking itself a country. That would show them.

Finland

Why? It's cold here and that language... Just...Ugh... Seriously, translate anything to Finnish and voila! You have a lovely case of lame.

Joten kyllä, tuhoaisin Suomen. Kiitos.

Your sense of overkill shocks me.

That said, I second this.

Who's the smug Sealander now?

I'm sorry, your uneducated onesidedness makes it impossible to take you seriously.

And replace Christian with <religious person>, w/e.

Oh, I'm uneducated because I believe (with plenty of legitimate evidence) that Israel is responsible for atrocities against Palestinians? Do explain what I got wrong.

"genocidal shenanigans in the name of its persecution complex"

Be less of an idiot, read some neutral articles about the history of that area and try again.

I did. Too bad for Israel, no amount of spin can defend a land grab of this magnitude:

Not to say that Arab states aren't just as bad at times, but Israel is comparable to Apartheid South Africa in its treatment of Palestinians both in the territories and within Israel proper.

http://www.amnesty.org/en/news-and-updates/illegal-israeli-settlement-plans-threaten-palestinian-human-rights-2010-10-15

Amnesty International on Friday urged the Israeli authorities to abandon plans to construct 238 new housing units in Israeli settlements in occupied East Jerusalem.

"The Israeli authorities must immediately halt expansion of settlements in East Jerusalem and the rest of the occupied West Bank," said Philip Luther, Amnesty International's Deputy Director for the Middle East and North Africa.

"Not only does the building contravene international law, it also compounds the litany of abuses of the human rights of Palestinians living in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, including their rights to adequate housing and water."

Although the areas of Pisgat Ze'ev and Ramot were not covered by the recent freeze on settlement construction, which excluded East Jerusalem, all settlement building on occupied land is illegal under international law.

Israel unilaterally annexed 70.5km² of occupied land in East Jerusalem and its environs following the 1967 war.

"Discrimination on grounds of nationality and religion is the dominant feature of Israel's settlement policy," said Philip Luther.

"The policy violates the rights both of Palestinians in East Jerusalem living under civil law and of those in the rest of the West Bank where they are subject to Israeli military law."

Israel's land grab and dissection of the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, have had a devastating impact on the lives of Palestinians. In East Jerusalem, 35 per cent of the land has been expropriated for settlements in which 195,000 Israelis live.

The Israeli settlement policy is not just wrong, it's clearly illegal under international humanitarian law.

Gee, could we see this coming? I wouldn't nuke a whole country, just the house of the OP for this thread.

Russia, that way I'd activate the Doomsday Machine that would nuke the whole planet.

oh internet, you so good. what would i do without you. if anyone can direct me to somewhere else i can find more casual discussions of genocide, please by all means! seriously why does this exist? what nation would i like to destroy? really? wtf people

Redlin5:

"You don't really believe that, do you?"

But seriously, ya gotta nuke something, right?

Vatican City. The Pope hides child molesters and opposes condoms in AIDS ridden countries, he can go fuck himself.

Canada. As I understand, BioWare is from there and I want to hear the screams of a million fanboys.

Oh stop being such a prude and indulge in your sadistic nature via text.

Do I get to redefine the term nation? If so, the collective dangerous extremists (regardless of what particular ideology they are so passionate about) of the world get to kiss their arse goodbye.

If not, nothing at all. There are countries in the world I feel we would be better off without, but none of them are so threatening that it makes up for the massive collateral damage in innocent lives.

France as the crater left behind will lower the sea level spain will have more coastline to develop and germany will get the ocean access they wanted in WW2 away from the UK.
