Nuclear Strategy: History

The recent publication by the Pentagon’s Defense Science Board revealing that we’re entering a second nuclear age is difficult news to hear given the non-performance of our Executive.

The history of nuclear brinkmanship is simple to understand:  the history of nuclear proliferation is NO guide to the future, and that the ability for the U.S. to detect the point at which a regime decides to build a bomb is a UTOPIAN FATAL CONCEIT.

History teaches that sacrificing U.S. leadership to advance nuclear technology made no difference to other countries wishing to advance their capabilities.

Let’s face it:  the nature of political regime matters.
