A house divided (Nyar is right)

Post by Abdul Alhazred » Tue Apr 10, 2018 4:41 pm

It’s Time For The United States To Divorce Before Things Get Dangerous
The Federalist

Synopsis: Hey fellas! How about partitioning the country?

Freeper thread (long):
https://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/3646386/posts

Synopsis: Consensus is they want war.

Sample:
Why would we want to avoid it turning deadly?
...
Good point. It wouldn't even have to come at our own hands. Just erect a blockade to keep the HIV drugs from being transported to Soyland. There goes half their population in a few years.
Analysis: The war won't go the way they expect. Not because of who is right, but because it never does.

Don't try, it's just another batch of feces shit posted by AA. :)

On the other hand, if Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, etc. wish to secede, let 'em.

I'll wait for Nyar to show up before deciding whether to have a tantrum. :)

We take them back. We paid for them after all.

All you nukes is belong to US.

Now, what would actually happen is this: You can keep the missiles, but about those warheads....

Clue: If the LIBBERULz were smart they'd have insisted on missile bases in their own neighborhoods and not just hick places like South Dakota. :p

Fail. One does not put targets in their own back yard.

Clue: Big cities are targets anyway. But who gets the nukes when the country splits?

When the USSR split, Ukraine paid the USA to help dispose of theirs.

Russia agreed to reduce arsenals considerably (along with the USA), but kept a few in case they needed a deterrent in a regional conflict.

I have already answered that question brought about by my sarcastic suggestion that we allow Those Naughty States to secede.

'Nuff said?

No, more along the lines of the man in the high something or other. Played straight.

Though watching the snowflakes trying to reset a circuit breaker might provide some amusement. Or slaughtering their own Kobe beef.
