    If you're "terrified to the brink of tears" get a newspaper or switch on the news. Educate yourself.

    i just imagined each of the leaders (w.e u call em) stood on the boarder with a giant magnifying glass waving their cocks at each other hahaha
    Lol, this is pretty much what it is. Just with tanks and planes and all the rest and making sure the other side knows they've got them.

    I'd be more worried about him getting pissed and breaking his leg or something.

    Not gonna happen. If there will be a war, it would be in the Eastern Europe which is far away from here.

    war between 2 countries powerful enough to obliterate the entire world ? Yep that seems really likely.

    Russia has 1,700 nuclear warheads on ICBMs fast enough to penetrate any missile defense. Please think before you write.

    talking to my boyfriend about it and their prepping for war and it terrifies me as his a soldier and will have to go.

    they have already done exercises to establish a rough time of how long they would survive for in a war zone and the statistics for his area (ground based air defence/artillery) is less then 10minutes :/
    A bit out of topic but the data that your boyfriend passed on to you is meant to be confidential I believe. He shouldn't be telling anyone outside his workplace let alone publish it on a public forum!

    exactly. No govmnt. is going to sit back and allow their country to be invaded and destroyed because theyre too afraid to use a nuclear bomb. And after one country does it, a retaliation strike would come followed by mass destruction. Naive western military cant seem to realise this though and through money at offensive weaponry while countries like China, North Korea, Russia and Iran defend.
    Now that NK has a nuke, nobody will attack them. it is the ultimate deterant.

    Yes, the posting is for three years. So he has two more years ago and then he's done. His wife is in the same regiment. They are there to move UK troops out of Germany over the 3 year period.
    He has had enough now. Been in the Army 16 years. Done 2 tours of Afghanistan and was in at the beginning of the Iraq war.

    I don't think so. And the reason I think that is that I just can't see a country having the obscene stupidity to launch ICBM's at anyone.
