“Let’s listen in for a moment to the gentle, awkward language of mass killing: ‘The employment or threat of employment of nuclear weapons could have a significant influence on ground operations. … Integration of nuclear weapons into a theater of operations requires the consideration of multiple variables. Using nuclear weapons could create conditions for decisive results and the restoration of strategic stability. Specifically, the use of a nuclear weapon will fundamentally change the scope of a battle and create conditions that affect how commanders will prevail in conflict.’ This is a sneak peek into a 2019 report by the Joint Chiefs of Staff called ‘Nuclear Operations,’ which Brian Terrell quoted recently. The document was, for some reason, publicly posted in the waning days of the Trump administration, then (oops!) quickly removed, but not before it was downloaded by the Federation of American Scientists.” (06/03/21)
