Is it possible? Is it crazy? Is the Bush administration capable of such an atrocity? Of course. And they say it themselves.
In a article titled ‘The Rise of US Nuclear Primacy,’ in the March/April 2006 Foreign Affairs, the magazine of the New York Council on Foreign
Relations, the author, Kier Lieber made the following claim:
‘Today, for the first time in almost 50 years, the United States stands on the verge of attaining nuclear primacy. It will probably soon be
possible for the United States to destroy the long-range nuclear arsenals of Russia or China with a first strike.
So they think it's possible to win a ``nuclear war``. Because, how wipe out missile silos and bunkers without at least
nuclear bunker buster
This dramatic shift in the nuclear balance of power stems from a series of improvements in the United States' nuclear systems, the
precipitous decline of Russia's arsenal, and the glacial pace of modernization of China's nuclear forces. Unless Washington's policies change or
Moscow and Beijing take steps to increase the size and readiness of their forces, Russia and China -- and the rest of the world -- will live
in the shadow of U.S. nuclear primacy for many years to come.’
Are they implying pre-emptive strike? I think so, with their new military doctrine of pre-emptive wars and crap like this.
Also, the missile shield would serve in case of first strike from the US against Russia and China, they would have few nukes left to counter-strike,
and the missile shield would stop them. Because, the missile shield isn't worth the cost if it's just for protect from North Korea or Iran, they
can't launch a nuke at the US, it's near impossible.
Also, Iran, North Korea and Georgia are proxies war between the US and Russia/China.
So I tend to believe the non-working missile shield for offensive purpose rather than defensives ones. So I think that if
they get the missile
shield working and they feel like ruling the world, they might try it, anyway they have their bunkers, their slaves, their money and they don't care
about the rest of the world if it's to take over it. And they want to reduce the world population.
The cold war isn't finish, they fight for global supremacy, this administration seems to fear nothing to win, not even a nuclear war they could
possibly believe they own crap and strike to win. Any thoughts on that?
