As mentioned earlier, the military never shows all their cards in their hand......the fact that no nukes have been built in the US since Reagan
should really speak for itself......
If the US doesnt feel the need to build any more nukes it is NOT because of some treaty, but more than likely because they have new more advanced
technologies that negate the need for the use of nukes.
In that respect, you could look at Chinese Nuclear buildup as "so yesterday".......and primitive in comparison.
I wouldnt be surprised if TSHTF and China/Russia start throwing missiles around, the West lights up the sky with lasers and the like making the Star
Wars movies look like a joke.
And regarding any possible first strike planning.....You would not only be hitting the military targets of that one country/target.
You would have to consider retaliation by both the citizens of that said country and the allies of the target country.....with that frame of thought,
any first strike option would need to take out -
-all military installations
-all power grids, major manufacturing facilities, ports, anything that could be used in future to build that country back up.
-the same for any allied countries to the target country in case of revenge attacks.
It would be the biggest and greatest light show this planet would have ever seen and more than likely the last it ever sees.
