Is Nuclear War Inevitable?

Like I say, unintended consequences, NATO didn't push anywhere, a flight to quality drew freedom loving anti-Communists towards the Empire of Liberty, and I welcome them with open arms.

 

Then they will have to leave Ukraine...many already have.

Takes too long to get to the Great Plains, if you're going at the Americans, you have to at least cripple that countervalue force, and to do so, you need to pop up out of the ice and launch on a depressed trajectory at the Miniteman III's,  from Canadian waters.

 

 

Not as a first strike weapon...it's the new years day hangover.

I can't control the Poles;

Ukraine tries to retake the Donbass, Russia launches a counter offensive, Poland enters Ukraine to defend them at the Dnieper, Russia puts the 1st Guards Army in Belarus on the Suwalki Gap, NATO mobilizes, Russia mobilizes, etc, etc

I don't give the Russians a lot of credit. Their tanks are hacks...planes are junk...but the one area they do excel at is long range rocketry. If they could only put all that talent back into space exploration. They put probes on Venus ffs.

They both tried that in the 1920s and thought they'd better not try that again. Poland is a plucky one in a fair fight.

Not going to happen....hell, Ukraine use to be the bad guys too.    That's why they had Soviet nuclear weapons.

Pretty eager to join the Nazis when the opportunity presented itself, too. Leave them to their regional fun.

Bah, whose afraid of Mr. Ivan?  

Ronald Reagan had it right in 1981, when the Carrier Battle Group suddenly went radio silent, crossed the G-I-UK Gap, and popped up again in the Barents at Murmansk and then started buzzing them with F-14 and A-6's.

Message; we can take you any time, Ivan, just in case you were thinking otherwise.

That's the only way to deal with Mr. Ivan, because Mr. Ivan is a bully, but he ain't at all that tough when you stand up to him.

Agreed...they are willing victims of geography and circumstance.   NATO is not going to total war for Ukraine....no way...no how.

But Russia has hundreds if not thousands of these types of weapons hidden in the vast hinterland. They come out after the mushrooms start growing.

No surprise at all....Rooskies had force locators in the sky by then, same as the Americans.

AFAIK, Ivan sent the satellites out, and every plane they had available as soon as the battle group went dark, and couldn't find them.

What you have and what you are prepared to launch in the face of anything less than an all out countervalue strike over the pole, are not the same thing.

It's Canada that can be caught unaware. What radar? It's long gone.

As if he is really paying attention to the sh*t he is doing, he'sjust trying to win another election by populist axe grinding, he doesn't have a unified strategy to avoid a nuclear confrontation and he is continuing to deploy things in Europe which is making Mr.Ivan do crazy things in response already,  like using CBRN on British soil apparently, which is crazy crazy by Cold War standards.

If the Rooskies could find our periscope mast sticking 1 meter above the surface in the North Sea, they sure as hell could find a Nimitz or Forrestal class super carrier.

Russia no longer has anything resembling first strike capability. Just a massive retaliation in kind. A-10s aren't going to swoop outta nowhere and zap those launchers like in Iraq.

Yes...he campaigned on exactly that.   Still hasn't started a stupid shooting war after two years.

If you have SSBN's you have an inherent counterforce capability.

As I mentioned...the Bulava is a bit of a joke. It's still only relatively safe if the sub surfaces to launch...and then what's the point? Mr Spy Sat see's you and informs the boss...bye bye Russian sub.

It's only bye-bye if there is an SSN up in the saddle, because if your not right on top of him, what are you shooting him with?  Sharks with lasers on their noses?
