S. should continue an active and wide-ranging program of research and development and should immediately deploy a comprehensive system of missile defense that will protect U. None of these documents indicate intent for use, however. How nuclear weapons would be used in war, and whether a nuclear war between two nuclear powers could even be won, has been a central problem facing military strategists and planners.

After Clinton and Yeltsin first agreed to the plan, the war in Kosovo the following spring soured Russia on the West and everything was put on hold for nearly a year. There was a genuine fear from Moscow that the west could whip the Soviets’ ‘asses’. [24] The perpetuation of 3rd generation warfare would solidify the importance of numbers, technology and tactics to the state’s security and war planning. Ultimately, while nuclear weapons might have been militarily useful in the war, it was clear that, by the time the war was fought, they were politically unusable, and for some officials, even morally unacceptable.

A B-47 carrying two nuclear weapon cores from MacDill Air Force Base in Florida to an overseas airbase disappeared during a scheduled air-to-air refueling over the Mediterranean Sea. It's quite possible to do serious physical damage with a cyberattack, just cross-connect a couple of high-voltage phases and disable some of the protections to see the impact.
