    Uh, no.

    These roles are:
    Deter nuclear and nonnuclear attack.
     Assure allies and partners.
     If deterrence fails, achieve US objectives.
    And nukes are not the only WMD. They enemy could have used chemical weapons, biological weapons, or flown aircraft into building, "doing something", and any use of WMD by the enemy permits us, at or discretion, to use any of our WMD in teturn. We are not limited to reply in kind. We can even escalsre, if necessary.

    Using a low yield nuke on a missile gives us more options to paint pretty pictures of deadly retaliation.

    What's wrong with more options?
    Nothing. I would like to see new weapons with 1-10kt variable yields.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    I see where you cited the part "where deterrence fails" in your objection to my explaining what "fails" means.

    It means we've been attacked.

    Generally, though, if we have to nuke someone, it might be nice to pick at tge MN with pebbles, but it's probably more effective to totally eliminate their presence in any century later than the yenth, BC, as an example to others.

    We the People DID NOT vote in a majority Rodent Congress, they stole it via election fraud.

    Yes. But not necessarily with nuclear, chemical, or biological weapons. That was your error.

    They've got Eric Swallowell, so it isn't as unlikely as it seems.

    You've forgotten that one of Rodents in the Clown Car threatened to nuke gun owners in America?
