Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, September 13, 2019

President Donald Trump's acting national security adviser, former Reagan administration official Charles Kupperman, made an extraordinary and controversial claim in the early 1980s: nuclear conflict with the USSR was winnable and that "nuclear war is a destructive thing but still in large part a physics problem."

I hope Charles realizes that while the US might win a nuclear war it starts, if I survive, his family might not.

Kupperman won't be lasting long anyway. He's one of Bolton's guys.

He said that 40 years ago fer Crise sake. Claiming its winnable is not the same as advocating for nuclar war.

Oh this is an easy one. Start a fight with a country that doesn't have any, and nuke them senseless. You'll lose economically when the entire world cuts off trade, but you'll definitely win the immediate ground war.

If Obama didn't think you could win a war involving nuclear weapons, why'd he sign off on a trillion dollar overhaul that is developing variable yield "micro nukes"?
