The Wrong Move: Adding Nuclear Weapons to the Russia-Ukraine Conflict

Defense One - Feb 9, 2015 

Despite the wishes of two key Congressmen, more nuclear weapons in Eastern Europe is a bad idea. 

You may have missed it, but last month two key members of Congress asked the military to move additional U.S. nuclear weapons and dual-capable aircraft into Eastern Europe.

... In their letter, the two chairmen extend a Russian statement claiming its sovereign “right” to deploy nuclear weapons in Crimea to an “intention” to do so. They also assert Russian “moves to deploy nuclear-capable Iskander short-range ballistic missiles as well as nuclear-capable Backfire bombers in the illegally occupied territory [Crimea].”

Hmm, are these the same nuclear bombs on which three weapon lab Directors sign an annual certificate form claiming they still work, almost as good as new?

Perhaps we'll soon see them "tested" in a most horrible way if things keep degenerating between the US/EU and Russia in the Ukraine.

Unfortunately, the number of people who have actually seen an above-ground nuclear detonation is approaching zero. Videos and pictures don't count.

Big deal, Obama can counter that by showing Putin a recent "simulation" that A, B, or X-division has performed on the newest, fastest computer. Take that Putin!

Fight how? With words, politically, economically, militarily? Try to be a little more sophisticated in your statements.
