JUUUUUUST GREAT : TRUMP LOOKING INTO MINI-NUKES

This is exactly what the human race does not need right now, innit?

The USA under Bomber Trump armed with many mini-nukes in order to give the US military "more options".

Juuuuust great, that is!

Question : which nation is the only one to have used atomic or nuclear weapons?

Answer : the USA on Japan in 1945.

Question : was that use necessary?

Answer : Absolutely not! Although it is claimed that the use of those atomic bombs on Japan shortened the duration of the war and saved lives, the terms of surrender accepted after the bombs were dropped on Japan were essentially the same that were proposed earlier that year which were rejected. In other words, surrender was first rejected in order to produce the circumstances for the USA to drop the bombs.

Question : so, can we trust Bomber Trump with such mini-nukes? The man who bombs and builds bases in Syria? The man who assists that "cancer on the world", Saudi Arabia, commit genocide and infanticide in Yemen? The man who prompted missileers, the officers who launch the nukes, to write an open letter expressing their deep concern that Trump should not have nuclear codes?

Answer : Absolutely not! Just think about it. Trump could order the use of a mini-nuke, hoping that nobody would notice. Just like he has betrayed his base hoping that nobody would notice.

The Trump administration is considering proposing smaller, more tactical nuclear weapons that would cause less damage than traditional thermonuclear bombs — a move that would give military commanders more options but could also make the use of atomic arms more likely.

A high-level panel created by President Donald Trump to evaluate the nuclear arsenal is reviewing various options for adding a more modern "low-yield" bomb, according to sources involved in the review, to further deter Russia, North Korea or other potential nuclear adversaries.

Approval of such weapons — whether designed to be delivered by missile, aircraft or special forces — would mark a major reversal from the Obama administration, which sought to limit reliance on nuclear arms and prohibited any new weapons or military capabilities. And critics say it would only make the actual use of atomic arms more likely.
