Authors of the Cold War era used to write wonderful thrillers about some Agents fending off or defeating an attack that destroyed the leadership of the United States in a single strike. These agents would be canny, resourceful, brilliant and deadly and best of all, they did the job. We have shows like NCIS which show similar levels of effort by similarly talented very special agents in the here and now,  but I wonder.

Would we be a lot better off if somebody elected to launch a decapitation strike at US and it worked?

Evil, thought-provoking, but evil.

Heh. Like Curtis... I wonder, too. ;-)

I think that if this goes on it is just a matter of when it happens. Our ruling class is racking up enemies like there is no tomorrow.
