I remember when the Democrat’s answer to trump made her comment when Israel was working on its deal with the Saudis, to use one of their airfields for refueling its fighters, who were to attack Iran’s nuclear reactors. She said any military response to Israel’s attack, by Iran, would be considered an act of war, and would be dealt with by the American military.
*Bolton’s entire career has been dedicated to destroying the United Nations and promoting war with Iran. We are following in the footsteps of Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy, but with immensely more powerful weapons. Our fuehrer of the moment is talking about new weapons for “limited” nuclear war. There is no such thing as limited nuclear war. The first idiot that presses his button will be able to say, “I am become death, destroyer of worlds.” For someone else will detect the launch and in fear or panic press his own button. Someone else will detect that and press his/her button and, in a few hours, our civilization will be gone, the libraries and art galleries destroyed along with the cathedrals and churches, hospitals and laboratories, croplands, factories et al.
*The survivors, attempting to grow food in a nuclear winter, where the UV radiation will blind people and induce cancers will probably become lawless to survive, preying on the weaker to survive, etc.
*And so it will end, a bang followed by a whimper and eventual silence. The universe will not miss another lifeless rock circling a middle class sun. It probably won’t even notice.
*I know whereof I speak, for I am a nuclear veteran. I have survived so far, but many thousands of us have not.
