Trump’s bloody nose strategy


Folks,

The Trump admin is considering changing the rules of engagement for first use of US nuclear weapons.  The so called 'bloody nose' strategy calls for the first use of tactical nuclear weapons on the assumption that a nuclear armed enemy will be deterred from responding after such a show of force.

Of course this would break a fundamental understanding of warfare, which is that a first strike changes the status quo ante and it is highly uncertain how events will unfold from that point on.

Can we reasonably deliberate on the effect of this change in policy until it is put into practice in real
time?

It was not my impression that any of this "bloody nose" talk involved the US using any kind of nuclear weapons.
(Ignoring, of course, the possibility of its provoking Kim to use HIS nuclear weapons, which in turn... )

I thought the bloody nose strategy just involved Trump snorting a shitload of coke all day every day.

Vox,

There are some connections that we might (or might not) make.

el,

Some people have been saying (not me, but I've heard it) that starting a nuclear war may not be 'defending America'.

Starting a nuclear war will always be in the best interests of the US as we have the largest amount of the biggest and most powerful nukes.

And look at post WW2 when the US was the only country left who could rebuild the rest of the world.

Nuclear war is great for America.
