The show looks interesting. I think the possibility of Yellowstone becoming a target, is about maybe 10% chance. But I think it would be by fire or even a device of some kind at the Resorts around the park. It's way to complicated to activate a volcanic Holocaust. But you never know.GUUYA'NHEY

If terrorists have/get a nuke (big if), they would not waste it on a 1 in a trillion chance of Yellowstone or La Palma, when they could just detonate it in a city and have a lot better odds.

Look... these natural objects mixed in with terrorism simply isn't logical.
If a terrorist had a nuke... he would hit what would have the greatest effect on us for SURE.
They would bomb one of a few places... The center of NYC where the stock market and our main commerce is, The center computing offices for the major credit card or banking companies, Main power grids or electricity centers, or highly dense cities.
All of these above area's would cause devistating damage not only within where the nuke hit but all over the country.
Hit NYC / stock market and our whole economy gets screwed fast.
Hit the credit card computer servers and again our whole economy gets screwed, mass riots and looting due to no cash... etc.
Kill our power and were really screwed...
And hit a dense city and massive panic all over the place.
If a terrorist "Nukes" anything for that matter we will retaliate and cause nuclear winter.. definately.
No terrorist in their right mind would "play the odds" with a natural phenominon when they could hit a for sure target and cause the devistating damage they want too.
Ports, infrastructure... etc.~Hvyarms Steelfists

Could a terrorist 'detonate' Yellowstone?
Just something I've been wondering about. It would probably take a hell of an explosion to pull it off but hey, we're humans and we would find a way. And there I go giving some well funded nuclear terrorist a great idea. Merry Christmas y'all.

Hawaii and Yellowstone are totally different beasts. Hawaii is composed of mafic magma, mantle derived, with low viscosities. So it oozes. Yellowstone is at the other end of the spectrum, siliicic magma, very high viscosity and full of accumulated volatiles. So it explodes. Once you release pressure on such a system, you actually accelerate the explosive eruption. Pressure release allows the volatile components to "flash" into gases, which in turn increases pressure in the system leading to more explosive eruptions, which in turn releases pressure, allowing more volatiles to flash into gases, etc. until the whole system finally runs it course. This thing has been brewing for 640,000 years- and is probably pretty well primed at this point. Sort of like violently shaking a can of beer, then trying to open it to let off a little pressure.
Once you open the lamp, it's tough to get the genie back inside.

If terrorists were to get hold of a significant amount of Radioactive material, it would be alot easier for them to make a Dirty Bomb, which would still kill thousands of people, but not actually cause as much destruction as a Nuke. I'm sure you are all familiar with Dirty Bombs (http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-co...rty-bombs.html)
If the terrorists don't already have some type of Nuclear device, it's only a matter of time before North Korea or Iran sell them one. Having previously lived in the UK, I can see how easily it would be to smuggle one into England through the Channel Tunnel, or on a Ferry from France. So I fear for my family and friends living in the UK, more than I would fear for the US Mainland. Hell, England is just a 4 or 5 day drive from Iran, with very lax border security for road travel.

Is anyone ever going to post something resembling a concrete theory about how any sized explosion would actually cause a caldera wide eruption? It seems that the protagonists of this 'theory' have no sense but to propogate other people's ideas without any idea whether what they're actually saying. I'm not even going to touch on politically moticated portrayal of terrorism or the nonsense that is the effectiveness of dirty bombs, but I hope you can see that without any kind of idea of the actual probability or method of inducing a cataclysimic eruption using a-bombs then you're showing yourselves to be fools of a spectacular degree. I'm sure someone's going to get annoyed by this but if there's anything I hate it's stubborn idiocy. Why don't you stop worrying about the impossible and start worrying about who's really pulling the strings in the White House?

Terrorsits are the figment of American right wing imagination
Terrorists will not strike Yellowstone because for them it is not a legitimate target. only a banking center, or something that will collapse the economy of the aggressive USA ( provocating terrorists to carry out the attacks they do by being oppressive and to restore NWO and to establish control for the Global Elite over the world markets to prepare for the coming of The Anti_Christ by supporting the Terrorist state of Israel) The terrorist aims if thought deeply are not to cause major death but to retaliate for Americas policies in Israel and to do that is not to cause death but to bring America to its knees on one thing and one thing only.......THEIR ECONOMY.
