    Ok then, let’s stop pussyfooting around and have a REAL war with Russia, which just happens to have the largest inventory of nuclear weapons in the world.

    Curtis LeMay, the Air Force general who incinerated two thirds of Japan’s cities in World War II and was disappointed when Kennedy wouldn’t let him do the same to Cuba, suggested In his 1968 memoir that rather than negotiating with Hanoi, the United States should “bomb them back to the stone age,” by taking out factories, harbors, and bridges “until we have destroyed every work of man in North Vietnam.”
    Turns out that in early 1968 President Lyndon Johnson’s senior military officers prepared, without presidential authorization or knowledge, for the use of tactical nuclear weapons in Vietnam. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fracture_Jaw
