You are better off working on missile defense and defenses against new technologies.

I agree with that.

You can airburst a 100kt nuke within a few meters of the projected ground target. You won't get much more accurate than that. City gone.

.... . You are better off working on missile defense and defenses against new technologies.




You are better off, in parallel with that, working on conflict reduction.


Peace isn't simply an absence of war because of deterrents or fear.

Agree. I was just referring to the spending of defense money. If you earmark XX billion for defense, how do you route that?

It's shit like the above that led to this:

Corker: Trump setting US 'on the path to World War III'

http://www.cnn.com/2017/10/09/politics/corker-world-war-iii-donald-trump-white-h...



It should be worth noting that Corker was one of those who wanted to directly supply Ukrainian rebels with weapons.

Gee....that couldn't lead to any problems with a major nuclear power, could it?

Not that I approve of Trump's handling of N. Korea.

It seems like we were either going to get a President (Clinton) who had a bad policy towards Russia, or one who had a bad policy towards the little powers (Iran, N. Korea, etc.) but which could lead to problems with larger powers.

Either way, we lose.

Since Iran is an ally of Russia, a bad policy towards Iran is dangerously close to a bad policy toward Russia.  Your post about the terrible 2016 choice is spot on.

Yeah.  People seem to forget or ignore that Russian politicians outright said electing Hillary Clinton would mean WWIII.

But Trump might mean the same thing.

I was hoping Trump might take a real isolationist turn, but it looks like my hope was misplaced.
