Skip to comments.Merkel miffed at Barack Obama and David Cameron 'nuclear war game'

World leaders played an interactive nuclear war game designed to test their responses to a terrorist atomic "dirty bomb" attack that threatened the lives of hundreds of thousands of people.
David Cameron joined Barack Obama, Angela Merkel and Xi Jinping and other world leaders to play a "nukes on the loose" war game to see how they would cope with a terrorist nuclear attack.
The German chancellor grumbled at being asked to play games and take tests with the Prime Minister, US and Chinese presidents around a table with dozens of heads of state at a nuclear summit in The Hague.
Her complaints were overruled because Mr Obama was keen on the idea and in on the surprise.
In the war game, played out by actors in a series of short films, a terrorist attack with an atomic "dirty bomb" takes place in the financial heart of an unnamed but Western metropolis. "It could be the City of London, or Wall Street, Milan or anywhere", summit leaders were told.
As the scenario unfolded, it emerged that the terrorists are from an unidentified global terror network and they have stolen nuclear material from an unidentified country that had poorly secured its radiological and nuclear stockpiles.

we are playing nuke war games with China, so they can see how our president and national security systems react?
“Mr Obama was keen on the idea and in on the surprise...”
Limbaugh theorem proven.
“...Send in the clowns. ...”
Send in??? They’re ALREADY in.
Remove the Clowns should be our motto.
Mutual support network for curtailing such liberties as remain IMO.
Obama would rather have played golf, but will settle for war games.
The head clown was there.
Oh Lord...just take me now.
“unidentified global terror network”
The Tea Party.
Obama: Whoops, did I do that?

I actually have some experience in Pol-Mil Wargaming from years ago both in Checkmate and the Center for Low Intensity Conflict. The first, absolutely first, rule is never directly involve the head of state. He or she can watch but should not become directly involved. When one does become involved it lets an audience see how you think and what you would do. This goes all the way back to Kennedy and his first Pol-Mil game that was done at Camp David.
This will give him something to do the next vacay he takes and there is a rain day or something.
Man, this guy is lost like a ball in tall grass. Frightening!
It wouldn't surprise me if she really gets p****** and walks out.
Obama loved it as he declared Martial Law and proclaimed himself President for life!
Do you want to play a game?
