Trump Will “Fix The Problem” Of The U.S. Not Nuking People (VIDEO)

According to Donald Trump spokesperson and Sarah Palin-wannabe Katrina Pierson, America has a serious problem. The problem, she said during a recent appearance on The O’Reilly Factor, is that we have a vast nuclear arsenal that we never use.

“What good does it do to have a good nuclear triad if you’re afraid to use it? And that’s where we are today and we need to fix these problems. Not just complaining and name-calling about who started this and who started that.”

Pierson’s comments came as she attempted to prove that Donald Trump really does have a solid understanding of the nuclear triad, even though his debate response clearly showed he does not.

As Rolling Stone reported on December 16, Trump’s response to the question posed by Hugh Hewitt during the December 15, GOP debate was nothing short of terrifying.

Hewitt asked Trump to identify which of the three legs of the nuclear triad would be his priority, if he were to become president of the United States.

After listening to a lot of double talk from Trump, who failed to specify whether his priority would be air, land or sea (the three legs of the nuclear triad), he tried again.

“Of the three legs of the triad, though, do you have a priority?” Hewitt asked.

Trump responded by saying,

“I think – I think, for me, nuclear is just the power, the devastation is very important to me.”

Nuclear weapons have been used only once in the history of the world. When the United States dropped nuclear bombs on the cities of Nagasaki and Hiroshimo, Japan, the world saw first hand the devastating consequences of that decision.

Beyond the 129,000 people killed in the initial blasts, as the Los Angeles Times reports here:

“Within a week of each nuclear attack, thousands who had escaped death began to experience inexplicable combinations of symptoms: high fever, dizziness, nausea, headaches, diarrhea, bloody stools, nosebleeds and whole-body weakness. Their hair fell out in large clumps, their wounds secreted extreme amounts of pus, and their gums swelled and bled. Purple spots appeared on their bodies, signs of hemorrhaging beneath the skin. Infections ravaged their internal organs. Within a few days of the onset of symptoms, many people lost consciousness, mumbled deliriously and died in extreme pain; others languished for weeks before either dying or slowly recovering. Even those who had suffered no external injuries fell sick and died. In the ruins of his small tuberculosis hospital in Nagasaki, Dr. Tatsuichiro Akizuki likened the situation to the Black Death pandemic that ravaged Europe in the 1300s.”

Months later, a second wave of radiation sickness swept through the city of Nagasaki. Newborn infants suffered and died within hours or days. Over the course of nine months, almost half of all pregnancies ended in miscarriage or stillbirth. The infants that survived were physically malformed or mentally impaired.

Tens of thousands of people died of radiation sickness, years after the bombs had fallen. Cancer rates skyrocketed, killing thousands of men, women and children for decades.

It’s the devastation that Trump says is important to him. Having the power to destroy thousands, even millions of human beings at his fingertips is important to him. Innocent or guilt, it does not matter. Trump proposes killing the families of terrorists, executing the innocent to punish the guilty.

Avoiding nuclear war has been the priority of every American priority since the 1945, when the world saw first hand the “devastation” Trump pines for.

According to Trump’s spokesperson, our priorities have been wrong all along.

Sure, Scientists tell us that even a “small nuclear war” would be enough to destroy the planet we live on, given the immense power of modern nuclear weapons.

Why should phrases like nuclear winter, global background radiation, catastrophic climate change, nuclear firestorm, or nuclear darkness scare us into not using weapons that have the power to destroy not just life on earth, but the earth itself?

The thermal energy created by a nuclear explosion does not occur naturally anywhere on our planet. When a nuclear weapon detonates, it resembles the birth of a small star. It creates temperatures similar to those found at the center of the Sun – hundreds of millions of degrees Celsius.

It’s frighteningly clear that Trump is excited at the thought of having that kind of power at his fingertips.

And that is precisely why Trump can never, ever be allowed to have access to that kind of power.

The entire conversation demonstrates the complete lack of morals that characterizes the modern republican party.

The solution to every problem is the most extreme level of violence you can dream up. There’s no discussion on how to prevent the loss of innocent civilian lives, or how to minimize casualties.

Just bomb and kill everyone.
