Basically the geography makes it impossible. There are no obvious areas you can take and hold which will prevent the US, barring major tactical incompetance utterly dwarfing you on both land and sea and forcing you back. At best you might be able to launch an attack on the west coast, and possibly form some form of line across the rocky mountains, using them to limit the amount of forces the US could send against you.. but after that how are you going to cross the great plains where for the most part there is nothing to hold on to and prevent you being pushed back due to logistical superiority on the part of the US.

No, attacking with nukes isn't much of an invasion and it doesnt' exactly qualify as "A War on American Soil." Its not a good idea either because the USA would instantly fire back and obliterate whoever launches on us.

Anyways, the topic seems to be pointing at having to deal with a full-scale war in America's backyard. That doesn't truly involve nukes.

no matter how much people may threaten to launch nukes, no one in the world will ever launch a nuke, because it will screw us all

You're obviously giving some of the crackpots in the world way too much credit for rational thought.

Terrorists are'nt stupid as you might think. If the oppurtunity lies there, they'll take it regardless the cost and risks.

To all people who think terrorists are stupid.

I was making a statement, not a reply. Am I not allowed to do such thing?

well if it is REGARDLESS then that in turn makes them irrational if not STUPID!
