    if the "china virus" was indeed a bioweapon unleashed by the godless commies why didn't a tough guy like trump respond as required by mutual assured destruction?

    So you think Trump should have started a nuclear war over a virus? Sorry, but that is an insane idea.

    over a wmd attack. that is our known policy.

    or maybe trump knew it was not a bioweapon and just stirred up the "kung flu" for the rubes?

    No sane person would start a nuclear war over a virus

    game theory. the MAD is modeled on the game of "chicken." it is necessary for the opponent to believe that the player is insane - a role that trump plays naturally.

    It is? Since when? Source?

    Or maybe that's not our policy.

    Last time I checked, nukes were a deterrent to other nukes.
    Maybe the OP should do a little research before starting another #rentfree thread about Trump.

    I think is is a good question. If covid was a bioweapon that was unleashed by China on purpose, leading to the killing of almost 700,000 Americans, wouldn't that be an act of war that would require response in kind? We have gone to war for much less.

    In reality, Trump talks a good game about covid being engineered to attack us, but he never talks about any consequences, if that were actually true. So, my feeling is that he himself doesn't believe that it is a bioweapon unleashed on us by China.

    And, no, I am not advocating for war with China, I am just trying to think Rampart's thought experiment to the end.

    Well sure, if the US was the only country to get the virus. But every country has been affected...even China.

    That is true, which blows a hole into the theory that is was a bioweapon released on purpose. However, that will not stop Trump and supporters to claim just that.

    I think if it was found to be intentional, you'd seek global economic sanctions against China first, before getting into a physical altercation.

    Trump doesn't have a moral compass. He does and says whatever he wants and he gets his attorneys to send off threatening letters to distance him from whatever chaos he has created by not being able to control his mouth.

    Beyond that, he's a liar. He lied to us about the details of the what was coming our way and he kissed Xi's @ss all the way through while our people were getting sick and dying, losing their jobs, their homes, their loved ones.

    Basically, Trump doesn't believe in anything other than the imaginary world inside his head.

    And, what difference does it make at this point? His cult has made it abundantly clear that he can not do his job (and shouldn't have been fired for it), set the stage for an attack against his own VP in a chaotic situation that lead to the death of 5 Capitol police officers, negotiate with terrorists and invite them to our country and unleash them against our own skeleton crew military and innocent Afghani citizens, steal MILLIONS from our national purse through price gouging and refuse to cooperate with the incoming Administration for a smooth transfer of power.

    Everything he's done screams from the rooftops how little regard he has for our country, military, Constitution and people. The cult is exactly like a battered woman that keeps hanging on hoping "next time it will be better" and it never is.

    IT. NEVER. GETS. ANY. BETTER.

    Why would you bomb two countries, one of them not even responsible, after the 9/11 terror attacks that killed roughly 3,000, but you wouldn't bomb another country that intentionally released a bioweapon on us that killed 650,000+? That doesn't sound logical to me.

    Oh, I actually know the answer to that: GWB actually knew that Afghanistan and Iraq were no threat to us, we were able to just steamroll them. Now, China is in a total different league, they would actually put up a fight and possibly lead to WWIII.

    Very true.

    Trump supporters' Stockholm syndrome | TheHill

    When viewed from a clinical psychologist’s perspective, Trump controls his following much like a captor compels his hostages. He holds them with media frenzy and his personality cult while making promises that their release will soon come. In the meantime he demeans, vilifies and puts people down, giving voice to his followers’ anger but also humiliating and taking advantage of them.

    The psychological phenomenon of such a relationship, where people idolize and make excuses for their captor, is known as Stockholm syndrome. Over the years the term Stockholm syndrome has been used to understand the dynamics of child abuse, spouse battering and pimp-procured prostitutes. And now it fits the connection between Trump and some of his supporters. These kind of traumatic bonds are characterized by hostages’ distorted thinking.

    Why didn't Trump start new wars and conflicts? Because he is a man of peace, not a war monger, and didn't involve the US in new wars, like every president since Carter.

    there is no such thing as a nuclear war.

    the USA has enough military power to destroy every other country in the world.

    but about 9 other countries have nuclear weapons and would use them

    about 80 years ago , a couple of nukes were dropped on japan

    the result was complete surrender by japan

    had japan had nuclear weapons at the time we would be in a different world today

    the use of ONE nuclear bomb will change the entire world

    over population will not be an issue if a nuke is used anywhere in the world

    the domino effect may be the end of the world

    That's it single her out, psssst, pay no attention to the FOUR devices you live behind to post here, the car your wife drive to work every day, the smart TV you watch MSNBCNN on, the shoes and and clothing you wear! Take away all the stuff you live with every day of your life and you'd be sitting in a empty lot NAKED or in a burlap sack, oh wait even burlap comes from the Chineses :wierdface:

    China owns us, without them we would crumble and starve, well some of us anyway.. The DNC for a half century has put our very survival in the hands of those that infected us and the every country on the planet.

    So much hypocrisy!
