D Robb-

"There are multiple reasons that no nuclear nation has ever used nuclear weapons against another nuclear nation. There are multiple reasons why the US policy is that nuclear weapons are only for deterrence."

1. I am not sure current U.S. military rules of engagement do not allow for an American FIRST STRIKE. I remember that under Obama a military review was underway to review American policy of "nuclear weapons are only for deterrence." The only result of that review was BOTH RUSSIA and the UNITED STATES announcing upgrading their aging nuclear defenses.

2.The recent oil spill of the Trans Canadian pipeline resulted in acres of American soil made unusable for farming PERIOD. Now using the experience of America's use of nukes on Japan the logarithmic damage, long term damage to America's land, infrastructure and population is not something understood by most Americans.

Nuclear war since the end of the COLD WAR has rested on the threat of a lone wolf military commander going crazy like in the display "FAIL SAFE" or some terrorist group smuggling inside the nation of a dirty bomb or any level of nuke.

Now we have Mr. Twitter-bully calling out a North Korean brute to see whose is bigger never realizing the cost of going too far. Think the $100 billion in hurricane rebuilding money was hard to find? Think of the never-ending cost of nuclear strike anywhere in the continental U.S.

BTW- what do you think the rest of the world will be doing once the first nuke is used against either nation? Old raccoon-boy will find out he and the way he has run this nation don't have as many friends as he thinks he has.

I wish Victor was here to describe the horrors of nuclear war. The radiation fall out from destroying North Korea on China, South Korea and Japan is a show stopper right up front.

The concept of not disavowing a nuclear first strike was useful in Europe during the Cold War. If the Russians and East Germans invade West Germany the threat that the US might escalate immediately to Nuclear weapons was a useful deterrent. However, that would be under circumstances where the US had already been attacked.
The idea of a preemptive US attack against N Korea is a totally different thing. Such an attack would violate international law and make the US leaders who ordered the attack war criminals.
