The West knows if push comes to shuffle Russia uses tactical nukes on troops, carriers and bases, just as what would have happened in `63 if US would
have invaded, there was a nuke ready for US troops.
Once the tactical nukes come into play, NATO isn`t all that powerful anymore and they know it.
Wow...Not sure where to do go with that measure of disconnect?
Russia would be wiped from the globe if they ever chose to use Nuclear Weapons. They barely have the resources to maintain and secure the Nuclear
weapons they do have..Let alone contest the USA and it's allies in a Nuclear confrontation. You have watched one to many Military Parades and confused
it for power.
There would massive, world-wide destruction once tactical nukes are engaged, but the only certainty is that from Moscow to the Bering Sea would make
Chernobyl look like a vacation destination.
Putin's own military leaders would feed him a plutonium cheeseburger long before they would ever turn the key on any Nuclear strikes.
What that leaves is Russian ground forces, who appear to either be very poorly trained, easily lost and often finding courage in bottles of
Stoli...most often seen demonstrating their military prowess by abusing villagers and helpless civilians or mistakenly shooting down passenger
Russia's invasion of Ukraine and it's cowardly denial of the same is an act of desperation by Putin, just like Georgia in 08 and that desperation is
what causes Putin and his supporters to embarrassingly and continually put on the show of "Bravado".
The leaders of the world don't fear Putin, they worry how to manage his sensitive ego and ineptitude in a way that won't result in an outright
collapse of the Russian government and economy, which would be yet another strain on the mature nations of the world.
Again...not sure where to go with this kind of disconnect.
