The Nuclear Zero campaign…

…is very funny.

Of course without Nuclear Weapons millions upon millions of Japanese and Americans would have died in an invasion of Japan in 1945. The Soviet union would likely still be occupying parts of China since the war would have dragged on. The Soviets might not have been deterred in Europe and of course it would not be 37 years since the last full scale multi nation Arab assault on Israel.

When these fools (assuming they are motivated simply by foolishness) can get Nukes out of North Korea then I will consider taking them seriously.

I know remembering history isn’t popular but might one recall how well the naval treaties of the 20’s and 30’s prevented the rise of rogue powers and ruinous wars.

Maybe its because I remember the cold war and who funded the disarmament groups that railed against the US but I suspect the idea that removing the deterrent effect that Nuclear arms on certain nations is a feature not a bug.
