About Mutual Assured Destruction is that nobody believes Putin gives a damn and nobody in the West thinks the ruling elite care about it anymore. They don't live or work in the Soviet targets anymore. I'm actually kind of tired of them.
I don't care either democrats. I'm not going to miss NY NY or DC or San Francisco and yeah, I lived in them all.
If you would like to see where something like 3000 Russian nuclear weapons are targeted, it's available on line. It will give you nightmares as you start to co=-rationalize that you think Putin is a psycho with cancer and nothing to live for but you go for it. After all, you also think man made global warming is real.
The number of nuclear warheads they have changes every now and but they had 5700 the last time I looked and cared. Not a bomb specialist, I hear they degrade over time. Not a nuclear engineer, it's the material.
An enemy really doesn't have to ship them ballistically. They can use UPS.
