The junta is now drawing up contingency plans to use nuclear weapons against China (?!), Russia(?!), Iraq, North Korea, Iran, Libya and Syria. If there are terrorists on American soil with some sort of nuclear weapons, something the junta has been trying to scare the American public with in order to keep up defence insanity and hide domestic embarrassments, those terrorists may actually feel that they are involved in a war and are bound by some rules of war. One of these rules might be that they wouldn't use their nuclear weapons against civilians unless thay had to in self-defence. The announcement that some countries they are fighting to protect may be subject to American nuclear attack may be enough of an excuse for them to decide that they have to make the first strike. Why would the junta gratuitously and senselessly reveal plans that could provoke such a reaction?
