And here was me thinking Mutually Assured Destruction was some one off joke . . .
There are two computers hidden under the corn fields of the mid-West that stage mock nuclear battles against each other constantly, and have been
doing it for almost 50 years. SIOP is the American Single Integrated Operational Plan, and RSIOP just happens to be the same thing for the
[sic] other side. But they simulate and predict strategic nuclear confrontations, not battlefield ones.
But I don't suppose there's much of a difference, all in all. Just more people get killed in one version.
