The language does not specifically limit the use of RNEPs (Robust Nuclear Earth Penetrators .3 to 300 kilotons yield) however, leaving the door open for other further mentally sick actions. The Doctrine of Joint Nuclear Operations uses countries such as Iran and the DPRK as models for their plans. They gross horrific failure of their "shock and awe" joke has shifted them much further down the path to a massive single theater nuclear war, or even a global nuclear war.
No one that doesn't need to be on thorazine or Haloperidol, not to mention the jacket with long sleeves that tie in the back, would ever expect the Russians, Chinese, or the DPRK to stand by and watch an impotent with sadly incompetent military forces led by a clearly sick man or men engage in activities of this magnitude!
The US has already used Nuclear Weapons on a beaten adversary whilst claiming that hundreds of thousands of Americans would perish if the US to invaded Japan. There are quite a few fuzzy aspects to this assumption. First, the Japanese navy was on the Pacific Ocean floor. Their Air forces were so badly decimated that the "pilots" of Kamikaze aircraft were taught to fly in wooden boxes with broomsticks. Further, they weren't instructed in the methods involved in landing the aircraft. Most Japanese Cities were leveled by the use of incendiary bombs. Tokyo, for example, suffered more casualties than either Hiroshima or Nagasaki following the two nuclear weapons. This, of course, begs the question, if more damage was inflicted with incendiaries, what was the rush to nuke these cities. The bottom line to non-ideologues is that the US was showing off to the USSR that they had nuclear weapons, and were willing to use them. Of course that joke didn't last long since the Soviets were soon to develop their own weapons, and to this very day, have exploded the largest fission weapon in human history, "TSAR I." 100 Megatons of yield.
The US, since it was assisted by scientists from Europe in developing nuclear weapons, (American's weren't bright enough,) has never behaved responsibly with them. This applies to civilian Nuclear projects as well. Now, no doubt, there are halfwits out there when questioned about Three Mile Island, who will bring up Chernobyl, perhaps saying, "well, duh, they done worse then us!! I hear this frequently and always respond the same way, "We're not supposed to be comparing ourselves to anyone remember?, we're that 'shining example of freedom for all to FOLLOW!'" Rarely shuts these microcephalic turds up though.
Only an idiot (America's full of 'em) would fail to see the necessity to act soon to stop this seriously ill group of republicans. Most of us with any years under our belts well remember the ungodly fear of a "Russian" nuclear attack on the US of the fifties and sixties. (which history now shows was highly unlikely) Americans built bomb shelters in their back yards, school drills were common place. "Duck and Cover," and absolute waste of time, was drilled into kids ' heads.
America falls for scary stories like a safe. It doesn't question authority or authenticity of Government statements, it merely swallows the bilge, and cowers in unbridled fear This stupid, unconscious, uninformed society of flag waving mental defectives will be the downfall of this country, when it comes.
If we don't stop George, that time may be closer than Americans think.
