While researching the development of the United States’ nuclear strategy, I came across an article which listed the states targeted by US weapons in the 2002 ‘Nuclear Posture Review’:
Let’s just consider how these nations have fared in the thirteen years succeeding the review:
Russia X (being isolated and attacked by economic warfare)
Iraq X (Neutralised: no longer really exists, broken up and parts occupied by ISIL)
Iran (subject to economic warfare and military threats over its alleged nuclear ambitions)
Syria X (in the process of being destroyed by an externally supported civil war)
Libya X (already destroyed by an externally supported civil war)
Is it any wonder that I expect Iran to get the same treatment as Iraq, once Obama has gone?
