"Nuke Em"

"Nuke em", I often see this while visiting around the blogosphere and my usual first reaction is to recoil at the mere idea of setting loose those terrible WMD's. Being a child of the 1950's and having seen all the old movies such as "Fail Safe", "Doctor Strangelove" and many more coupled with my real nightmares as a child about those looming mushroom clouds the mere idea of a nuclear explosion scares the hell out of me.

Having gotten that out of the way, I've come to face a new reality and that reality is that one day we will be confronted with the cold hard truth of using the nuke or losing the battle. Tactical nukes are at the ready should they be needed. However, when such things are mentioned the American left recoils for they would not shoot so much as a spitball at the enemy and have shown consistently they will not even hurl insults their way. Although they have no problems with calling those of us on the right every name under the sun. It is becoming increasing obvious to me that the only enemy the American left sees are those fellow Americans on the right, and they feel if they can defeat those all other enemies in the world will miraculously vanish in a cloud of cleaning smoke.

War is not a game and the timid have no place on the battlefield or in the command post. To play at war is to lose and before losing I say those frightening words, "nuke um".

Yeah, its a pretty frightening deal.
I was part of the Tactical Nuke chain for many years as an Artilleryman, you spend some time asking yourself. "Can I do this if I'm ordered to?"

The answer is the same, before I would lose, I would "Nuke Um".

There isn't another answer.

No, war is not a game for the
weak. There are winners and
losers. I have been a supporter
of WMD and MAD for many years.
The thought of these weapons being
unleashed is quite horrorfying.
I remember hiding under our desks
at school in the 1950s and 1960s.
At some point this country WILL
be at a crossroads in a conflict
of very grave consequences. The
answer is always the same for me.
Use 'em and nuke 'em, or we will

I will be CP to PC, Ron.
Thanks for doing what you do.
I know you have your hands full.
