Most “tactical” nuclear weapons have way less yield than the first atomic bombs, which have all been decommissioned in favor of “tactical” and lower yield missiles.
Nuclear weapons are still devastating, but not quite as much as before. Nuclear weapons would best be suited to attack military-based targets, which themselves would have defenses, radar and other countermeasures and backup plans. Targeting civillians in large numbers would be a waste of effort, money and time, and would just draw the ire of the victimized nation which would still target military facilities.
Despite the U.S. having a stranglehold hegemony on the world, countries would still refuse to participate or make political and diplomatic moves to criticize or withdraw away from U.S. atrocities and blunders.
And with many major countries, especially socialist and anti-imperialist countries having nuclear weapons, the strategy of the U.S. deploying nuclear weapons greatly backfire. People are prone to make rash decisions and the bourgeoisie would sooner destroy than give up and rebuild, I think its incredibly unlikely that the U.S. would turn to nuclear weapons, since the field is much more even now, so to speak.
I’m hoping that Mexico or Nicaragua will become socialist next. Given that allegedly the U.S. is laying the groundwork to sanction and invade Mexico, combined with a huge chunk of the Mexican population supporting AMLO and wanting a leftist government and decrying neoliberalism and Mexico’s communist and socialist parties being surprisingly popular even if some of them are outlawed, I’m hoping the proletariat can rise against the cartels and other capitalists.
I’ve personally read a variety of differing viewpoints from sex workers themselves. Some are in favor of legalization, others prefer decriminalization. Many sex workers work in the industry out of economic survival, obviously, and many anecdotal stories I’ve read (notably from white women, who have more power and financial security) engage in sex work just for the extra spending money and the “fun”.
Yeah I get the joke. I just expected something different, I suppose.
China could fucking cure all +200 kinds of cancer, solve world hunger, end homophobia and transphobia, clone goddamn Dinosaurs Jurassic Park-style, prove the existence of the multi-verse, get me out of jail because of that Dolphin incident I was involved in at Sea World, and walk my Komodo Dragon and talking Ball Python, and these cracker piece of shit motherfuckers would still be screeching about “muh Wee-jerk camps!”
From what I’ve read, barring science-fiction level tech, countering China’s missiles is effectively impossible. And China’s defense systems I think are better or on the verge of being better than the U.S.
