Government would nuke Manhattan

We saw The Avengers and although it’s not typically my kind of movie, I enjoyed it. Good bid of humor, lots of action and a great cast. The flick got 4.5 stars of IMDb. Click here for the trailer.

It’s all the Marvel Comics Superheros – Ironman, Captain America, The Hulk and Thor –  getting together to save New York and the nation from godless aliens. But in a restaurant discussion about the movie afterward, no one in our group mentioned that the Government would nuke Manhattan to turn the tide of the battle.

That angle I found interesting if not a questionable use of my tax dollars. And in a way, it’s frighteningly possible should we be attacked by overwhelming forces from or not from this planet. What would the government save first? Itself, of course.

I won’t let you in on any more of the plot. Go see it….Robert Downey Jr. is always worth the price of the admission – a bit steep at $13, but it was in 3D so something has to pay for those funky glasses.

    No discussion because maybe we all intuitively feared we knew that is exactly how it would go down.
