If someone dropped a nuclear bomb on places where terrorists are residing (like, Pakistan,Syria,etc.), wouldn't that kill so many terrorists?

YES, that'd kill a few innocents too, but this is definitely a good solution , isn't it? Those few 'good people' will be someday killed by these terrorists ANYWAY, so they'd be better dead for a good cause. Grow up.

So, don't you think this is a good solution to terrorism?

  • First of all, not everyone in those places are terrorists. Second, even if we do find terrorist hideouts, we don't even knoe if they are terrorists or not. Third, depending on the magnitude of the nuclear blast, that would spread a bunch of unneccesary radiation around and would probably kill more people if the bomb was big enough.

    In short, no.

  • That is guilty until proven innocent, therefore unconstitutional. It would also create more terrorists and break several human rights violations. Grow up

  • It would kill more innocents than terrorists. It will also result in survivors within a large radius from the blast having lifelong health defects. Those are more innocents.

  • No. There is the "Rule of Proportionality" in war. You do not use a nuclear weapon to kill just a few people. It is not proportional to what you need to do and the collateral damage will be more than than what you accomplished.
