Sen. Roger Wicker, the number two Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, said Wednesday that President Biden should not 'rule out' military action in Ukraine if Russia invades, including the use of nuclear weapons.
'There's certain things in negotiations that if you're going to be tough that you don't take off the table,' the Mississippi Republican told Fox News' Neil Cavuto in an interview from the Capitol. 'And so I think the president should say that everything is on the table.'
I remember in the early 80's being in a discussion on the cold war with some commonwealth allies. Reagan and Gorbachev were sending veiled threats to each other through the media. One person clearly suggested that it was time to "drop another nuke" so the damned politicians would actually see the weapon they were going on about using against the other side. "They've forgotten what a fucking nuke will do; it's time to drop one on them and make them remember. It'll only take one or two.".
You want to drop nuke's? You want to drop nukes??
Tell you what...watch a British 1980's movie called "Threads". If you thought "The Day After" was terribly accurate in it's graphic portrayal of post nuclear war then you need to know Threads was so realistic some viewers actually developed PTSD. It's not just about the first days and weeks after the limited exchange but the film follows through 15 years after (iirc). To this day there are scenes I saw in Threads that still haunt me.
AND, if you survive Threads and still want to drop, then you have one more hurdle. An even more graphic depiction of post nuclear warfare from a BBC production called "The War Game". I've seen about 3/4 of it in snippets and again there are images that still haunt me to this day. It skillfully cuts between horrific scenes of destruction and "leading figures calmly giving interviews about the safe use of nuclear weapons". Fucking bone-chilling in a way Wes Craven could only dream of.
CAUTION - THESE FILMS ARE INTENSLY GRAPHIC IN NATURE.
