George. Really? You know this how? You read my mind? How about we read my post that started this whole thing?
<quoted text>
From that you get that I meant thermonuclear? Wow. Now you have gone from trying to distract and divert to flat lying. Sad.
No, kid...you were speaking of fusion weapons...you gave yourself away all over the other threads you dragged this through.

I don't pretend to know the difference, George. I went to an expert, both in the field of nuclear weapons and WWII history, and they confirmed the facts as you had put them forth.

You know this is far afield from my area of interest, but the Atom bombs used in WWII were not nuclear.

Right. The world would be a better place if only we would have dropped more nuclear bombs. You are a troglodyte.
you have determined that I was referring to fusion weapons? That puts even Carnac the Magnificant to shame. Ye gods.

I'd go hide too after highlighting your intelligence deficiency as you have done.

Sounds like you need to surround yourself with some smarter people 'cause even I know them atomics bombs we dropped was nucleared.

Your proclamation of "the Atom bombs used in WWII were not nuclear" in comment #84 is nothing short of a buffet.

You're also Liz. The Hightstown, NJ IP location is unique on this forum.

I have no idea who you're talking about. I don't know why my location says Hightstown, NJ. Some days it says Brice, Ohio (I'm in neither). I've tried to fix it, doesn't stay fixed.

So, I don't know who Liz is. For everyone always accusing you of being other people, you're doing the same to me??? That's pretty funny. From May of 2011 I have never been anyone other than MPNF1979.

Poor Che...she's THAT desperate.
I have a hunch "atomic" and "thermonuclear" were words coined to help lay people differentiate the two types of nuclear weapons: fission and fusion. Since lay people have a tendency to confuse the two, I wouldn't be surprised if the powers that be came up with the first two to help people keep them straight.

As the only part of an atom that is involved in nuclear reactions is indeed the nucleus, then it is correct to call either fission or fusion weapons to be nuclear weapons. "Atomic" weapons is misleading, as that inplies the entire atom was split, whereas only the nucleus is "split", and that involves basically protons and neutrons, the associated electrons (away from the nucleus) follow the resultant new atoms and are not part of the "splittng".

Nuclear power plants are called that even though every single one that was built uses the fission process, so that undercuts your argument. None are called "atomic power plants" anymore.

So yes, nuclear weapons of the fission type were used in WWII. They were indeed called "atomic bombs"; that does not negate the fact that the two bombs used were nuclear bombs.

The point is, Che's assertion was that fusion weapons were used. She's been on this Quixotic multi-thread tirade over colloquialisms for ten days.

It was? Show me a post where I said that fusion weapons were used in WWII. Just one. You should be able to do that, shouldn't you Georgie? At least you should if what you are claiming is true.

I've played your game on this tiresome losing rampage of yours for ten days, little girl. Every point has been argued and the general consensus is you're wrong from the angle you've been pursuing. It's just gotten boring.

No it is not. The assertion in dispute is yours, that nuclear weapons were not used in World War II. I say go tell that to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
