Trump suggested he would deploy nuclear submarines with trident missiles to the Middle east to use n against ISIS. The trident is a multiple warhead thermonuclear missile. Each trident has the explosive power of 70 times the Hiroshima bomb.   Even suggesting he might use them in the ISIS situation is asinine and irresponsible.

One military analyst, Paul Mansour, has said that using thermonuclear weapons against a Syrian city would result in an enormous number of innocent people being killed.  And, he added, 'it would set diplomacy and stability in the region back at least a hundred years.'

It is asinine to say that kind of war mongering crap.

I also think it is asinine to think Obama does not already have a few subs chugging below the waves in the Med armed with those same missiles waiting his order should he issue it.

'War mongering crap'? 


You honestly don't think the Donald wouldn't use nuclear weapons against any nation if the spirit moved him?


You honestly don't think that he is probably hoping that he'll win the presidency just so that he can make war?


For some reason, the lunatic right-wing fringe always think being a wartime president is the way to glory.


The only time it actually worked was during WWII.  But, then, FDR wasn't elected as a wartime president to begin with, so it wasn't really the same thing.

if not isis... it'll be crimea, and I fully believe he will.

I dream in my lifetime uhmericans will come to realize hezbollah, hamas, and isis gain followers by helping society AND the only way to defeat them is to perform greater good.

the average person is 8 times more likely to be murdered by a cop than a radical terrorist

The current submarines in the middle east   are carrying non-nuclear tomahawk cruise missiles, They have  launched missiles( non-nuclear) during Desert storm an operation Iraqi freedom.   Four Ohio class submarines have been converted to submarine launched cruise missile  carriers

Other than the delusions your extreme dislike of Obama creates, of course.

"creationism" ... 2000+ years worth of ABYSMAL FAILURE ... and proud of it.

No, I think given the Conservative mindset, nnsecu's comment is really by way of being complimentary.

Jeez, not only do the frightwing want to "take their country back" decades, they want to take the Middle East back centuries (not unlike the would-be caliphates).


The party of warmongers MUST be stopped.
