They (could) have their own propulsion system to lesser that time. - I really was just saying that it could strike targets almost as quick.
They could but it would be very inefficient... they would be constantly accelerating but also having to constantly turn because to move around the earth at faster than low earth orbit speed means leaving earth orbit and heading off out into deep space unless you are constantly turning back to head for earth...
More realistic that they (or RU) could do that than building a huge electromagnetic cannon that can fire around the globe...
A huge EM cannon that could launch things into orbit would be very useful, but limited as to what sort of payloads it could get into space... water would be the most useful as it could be converted into oxygen or used as water, or rocket fuel and would not be damaged no matter what the acceleration.
You're telling me a nuclear-bomb-projectile launcher that could hit targets around the globe in "20-40 minutes" isn't? Any weapon of "mass destruction" is destabilizing, to say the least. - I do support MAD at the moment.
Something that ensures no matter what the other guy does you can still wipe him and his friends off the map is a good thing as it assures the destruction is mutual and therefore suicidal. (ie irrational).
Having something that can destroy stuff anywhere in minutes puts everyone on a hair trigger where decisions have to be made fast while you still have lots of options... that is bad and can lead to the very thing you want to avoid... a real WWIII.
[quote]Tesla had more advanced ideas of military weapons ,that what we have today.. that will make look nukes
that US and Russia have like a weapon for amateurs. Tesla for example investigations claimed it was
possible to manipulate the earth magnetic field and direct it at will , with a powerful enough machine..
and for example manipulate the earth magnetic field and induce a lethal current into another nation and
fry the entire country. Not by launching a missile ,but simply by knowing how to direct energy.. Is Similar to a Lightning but a billion times more powerful and that instead of killing one person it touch, wipe an entire nation. he also claimed that manipulating earth magnetic fields you could create earthquakes and or break the earth in parts.[/quote
George Lucas had more advanced ideas about military weapons... he thought of a space station the size of a small moon that could destroy entire planets... thinking is one thing but actually making it happen and proving it is even possible is another.
Besides there is only one planet in this universe we can live on... I really hope no one is stupid enough to risk totally screwing it up playing with the earths magnetic field for shts and giggles.
