#3 That's why its call MAD, mutual assured destruction. Russia would cease to exist as an entity as well.

#7 Um... yay Russia?

The UK is tiny enough that France's nuclear arsenal could wipe it out. Sooo... congrats on getting to a threat level equal with France.

#9 Russia did not need to respond to something that was not a threat. It was just the UK indicating that their nuclear policy was ambiguous, as it ought to be.

The US kept its mouth closed rather than follow in the same vein and say "Well, shortly thereafter, Russia would cease to exist."

#10 Well, he did say first strike. That is just retarded North Korea talk. There is no way the UK would first strike anyone. If I were Russia I would push back pretty hard on that. And it should piss off the Trump people too.

Having a first strike option in the strategic bag of options is probably better than ruling it out, but making a big deal about having that option is not wise.

Especially at the moment. British Defense Secretary Michael Fallon = Dumbass. He should resign.

I look for the Mayor of London to launch against Israel.
