When a nation finally decides that violence against an adversary has become the only way to alter their behavior, such as stopping constant attacks on their citizens for decades regardless of interventions & opportunities for peace, etc., – politics by other means – then that violence must be delivered with maximum lethality, speed & productivity.
The more adversaries one can kill quickly, the sooner the violence stops, the fewer the total casualties & the more quickly a peaceful end-state is reached. The more productive the weapons used, the fewer that die – on BOTH sides – to achieve […]
Ike spent his presidency fighting against his own Pentagon because he didn’t want a huge conventional military to go adventuring. He knew modern war as no one else did, or likely ever will again, and saw no point in wasting lives or treasure on foolish adventurism, & told our enemies to stand down or get nuked. They stood down.

The Left hates America. They tell us this every day in every way. Why would they not want us attacked? They’re attacking us with immigrants and multiculturalism now – a nuke is faster in achieving their aim.
Contrary to what (too) many seem to think, a nuclear attack on an American city furthers Progressive goals.
Are Schumer and Pelosi publicly standing with Trump, saying, “We Americans have our policy differences, but those stop at the water’s edge; do not attack us”? No. They […]
