No such thing?....as Nuclear Tomahawks?

Details

The RGM/UGM-109A Tomahawk Land Attack Missile-Nuclear (TLAM-N) is an intermediate-range, ship- and submarine-launched, turbofan powered, single warhead cruise missile developed and manufactured by the United States. Tomahawk missiles operate at extremely low altitudes at subsonic speeds, and fly in an evasive flight-path using an array of guidance systems.

First of all, in the Tuskegee experiment. the subjects already had syphilis, but was not told directly they had it!

"RAY SUAREZ: So, Dr. Cutler was the link between these two programs. But there's a difference with Tuskegee, isn't there?
SUSAN REVERBY: That's right, absolutely. And that was part of what interested me. I have spent two decades writing about Tuskegee. I have written two books on it.
And the differences are very clear. In Tuskegee, the men already had latent syphilis. Even though there's a myth that they were infected by the government, they were not. In Guatemala, they absolutely infected all of these people.
In Tuskegee, the idea was to deny treatment as much as possible to the men. In the Guatemala study, almost all of these people were treated. What we're now looking at is the medical records to determine whether everybody got enough. And it looks like maybe about a third of the people there didn't really get cured once they had been infected by the United States government."
REPEAT!!
" In Tuskegee, the men already had latent syphilis. Even though there's a myth that they were infected by the government, they were not. "
Before opening mouth, please insert brain in gear!
I just hate it when a half literate person says something without any damned proof!!
Even if you're right, your comeback only refuted a faction of what my "half literate" self said. Now refute the Guatemalan story. A technicality does not refute my overall point.

Attention Dumb F*ck: I was referring to the type of Tomahawk cruise missile that was used exclusively in Desert Storm in 1991. In all, there were 288 Tomahawk cruise missiles launched in Desert Storm. If they had all been nuclear as you suggest, then Bagdad would have been reduced to a pile of radioactive rubble and the entire country of Irag would have been rendered uninhabitable. Any missile can be switched out to be made nuclear, you dunce. What part of this do you not understand, you dumbass Detroit sh*t hole punk!!!!

Idiot the British also fought the Haitians in the Haitian revolution. By early 1794 Toussaint Louverture was able to organize 4,000[citation needed] blacks into a band of loyal guerrilla troops, as he was a gifted, although untrained, leader and military strategist. It was not until February 1794 that the French Convention formally abolished slavery. Toussaint negotiated with General Laveaux and changed sides in May 1794. He then fought against the Spanish Empire, recovering all the forts of the Cordon de L'Ouest in less than two weeks and delivering the North to the French Republic. He also fought against the British Empire.

By 1795, Toussaint controlled most of two provinces. His two lieutenants Jean-Jacques Dessalines and Henri Christophe were extremely effective. Toussaint's success drove André Rigaud, a man of color leading forces in the southwest, to renew his attacks from where free people of color were concentrated in Port au Prince. Rigaud controlled a force of officers of color and black troops, who controlled the South.[8]


General Maitland meets Toussaint to discuss the secret treatyBy June 1795, the British had been driven back to the coast. In July the Spanish officially withdrew. Although the British continued to fight from coastal towns, Toussaint maintained his control over the North and West of Saint-Domingue. In May 1797 Sonthonax named Toussaint Louverture commander-in-chief of the French republican army in Saint-Domingue.

He was also successful in leading his relatively small band of troops (in lightning quick strikes) to gain strategic defeats and the withdrawal of an army of 10,000 British soldiers. In 1798, the British made a last-ditch attempt to oust Louverture by attacking from the South, sending General Thomas Maitland. Maitland failed and signed a secret treaty in which Toussaint Louverture agreed to leave the ports open to commercial shipping of all nations. The British withdrew from the colony.

We are going to be doing a lot of looking and no direct traveling for a very long time. The nearest stars are Proxima and Alpha Centauri which are apprx 4 light years away.

Light travels at 186,000 miles per second. That means that traveling at that speed it takes light four years to reach us. At that speed you could circle the earth seven and a half times in one second. Yet it would take four years.

Add to that the time needed to slowly accelerate and decelerate. We are going to do a whole lot of looking at stars for a long time.

Quick accelerations require that the way is clear ahead. I mean, there is an Oort Cloud composed g millions of potentially deadly objects out there which surrounds our solar system and which has to be traversed if we are going interstellar. So blindly putting pedal to the metal just because we can isn't such a good idea.
