Don't miss this: 'Before threatening “fire and fury,” Donald Trump should read some history books about nuclear warfare. When Truman saw the devastation the bomb wreaked, he became a sober steward of these weapons and insisted on keeping the decision to use nuclear arms in the hands of the president — seemed like a good idea at the time — and proclaimed in his farewell address, “Starting an atomic war is totally unthinkable for rational men.” Truman's diary records that he had instructed Stimson to proceed “so that military objectives and soldiers and sailors are the target and not women and children. The root of Truman’s misunderstanding was that he was a very incurious man when it came to nuclear matters. He rarely questioned his advisers, rarely analyzed the issues with independent judgment, and he never grappled with the big ideas.' Sound familiar?
