One thing is that the Martians would have taken a huge pasting with Earth's nuclear weapons, being so many in existence...ranging from huge missiles to nuclear grenades, shells, micronukes and bazookas! Some nukes would have survived the attacks long enough to be used!

There aren't any nuclear grenades or bazooka shells, but one thing you left out were the ADMs (Atomic Demolition Munitions). These are nuclear explosives that you bury in the ground and set off later, a nuclear cross between time bombs and land mines. Both NATO and possibly the Chinese were preparing them in case of a Soviet invasion, and western (particularly American) special forces-type units might also have smuggled them in behind enemy lines for taking out really tough targets.

These would be about the only nukes that would work against force field-equipped aliens. The aliens would have their fields turned on at the first sight of an attack, but with the nuclear stuff buried, they would just stroll into the area and get blown up from underneath, after the timer went off or the thing was set off via remote control. If the aliens didn't have any sensory devices capable of finding nuclear materials, the threat of these weapons alone might be enough to make them give up on the invasion.

Of course there were bazooka's! They were used as anti-tank guns in the World Wars, I think...

He means, Bazookas that fire Nuclear war heads.

Oh, I see, but I haven't seen them yet...

That's because they don't exist. And that is what the cuddley Mr Alland was pointing out. Bazookas exist of course, your right there, but ones that fire nukes. No, no, no.

Nuclear War heads weigh a hell of a lot, because the amount of Uranium needed is quite a lot. And Uranium is a very heavy metal.

And if you are going to set off a nuke, you want to be a very, very long way away. usually in another country :wink:

And it must be an uninhabited country, otherwise there would be LOTS of innocent casualities.

Oh, like we never have lots of innocent casualties even in conventional war.

If invaders like Wells' Martians came, nukes would be used if the aliens' weaponry permitted them to be used at all. As an innocent civilian myself, I'd rather be vaporized along with the alien army than have them drain me dry of blood for their cocktail hour. Also remember that there are lots of countries out there whose leaders aren't all that concerned about the well-being of the people they rule. "If I can't have this country, then NOBODY can have it!" The Hitler-in-the-bunker mentality, and if you're thinking of pointing out that his minions didn't destroy Germany as per his orders, remember that the Allies showed no sign of wanting to exterminate the German people or use them as a source of food.

Well, even without the conventional invasion, the nukes are capable of wiping out the entire Human race if we were not careful. Testing out stronger types makes the impact larger, and not to mention the spreading of the radioactivity, and THAT is what has killed too many people even after the A-Bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. And I haven't spoken about the Tsjernobyl incident in 1986! [-(

The way the Martians dealt with the Nuclear attack in Mars Attacks was very cool don't yous think? They got high on it. :a028:
