    Nobody in their right mind thinks Kim Jong Un would preemptively nuke someone. The concern is that Trump will strike first.

    I think the first nuke strike will come from a terrorist group. Now that we have named North Korea a sponsor of terrorism and are strangling them financially, there's a whole lot of incentive for them to sell their tech to the highest bidder.

    1980 called and they want their analysis back.

    Trump cannot nuke first. There's protocols in place to prevent that. You just had a AF Gen which publicly stated he would not obey an illegal nuke launch order. The only illegal nuke launch order would be preemptive strike.

    IDK if we can pull out completely without causing more destabilization.

    Everything in the Mideast is a FUBAR'd fuckfest.

    Preemptive nuclear strikes are not illegal. There is no such thing as an "illegal nuke order". The general chose his words very carefully.

    Jan 2017, Democrats in Congress propose legislation to make it illegal. It has not gotten anywhere.

    Afganistain was "Obama's war." Remember? The good war? Obama is a lamppost but even he realized pulling out of Iraq was a bad idea even under the heavy advice of his controller/mom and Iranian immigrant V. Jarrett.

    It makes sense on Iranian policy tables also. Iraq was Iran's rival and they are currently infiltrating them through their proxy army ISIS. Nothing says love like a little payback. Afghanistan, they, Iran, always had a problem with. There's a big opiate addiction problem in Iran and 97%+ of the world's opium/opiates come from Afghanistan.

    As long as Afghanistan has opium poppies then the US will never leave the country

    As long as Iraq has oil the US will never leave the country

    The US is doing the same thing in Syria. Seeing as Russia completely fucked everything by killing the CIA agents jihadis, the US were forced to come out yesterday and say "lol actually we are staying"

    That shouldn't surprise you. The Democrats are the gang that can't shoot straight.

    Ok I stand corrected nuclear strikes are not illegal technically. But, a preemptive strike on a target which might and most likely house or be populated by civilians is illegal. It's how the Iraqi guard got to protect their last tanks from airstrikes. They parked them by hospitals.

    So if Trump does authorize a nuclear strike on what is seen as a largely civilian target, it would be illegal. So the General could object. However, you don't refuse the Commander without consequences. He would be removed and his replacement would probably go through with the order.

    The overwhelming majority of Afgan opiates are for illegal purposes. To my knowledge the US does not use opiates originating from Afgan.

    I agree, nuking civilians would be illegal under international law. We won't see another Hiroshima, any attack would hit a military base. Which is pointless, because you don't need a nuke to take out an airfield or a couple barracks. Nukes shouldn't even be in the conversation.

    Youd think so. You'd also think that 60 cruise missiles would do the job too but apparently not

    Considering their base was literally two hangers, a road, and a bunch of guard posts built out of mud, they could have had it operational one week after a nuclear strike as well. The only difference is they'd all die from radiation.
