Professor Steven Starr explains that we are already in WWIII. As the U.S. pushes for an Asian NATO, South Korea and Japan could very quickly become nuclear weapons states. The arms control treaties and safeguards have all but been dismantled and Russia’s response was the creation of hypersonics. He discusses the folly of this idea of “limited nuclear war” via the use of tactical mini-nukes, the concepts of “firebreak” and the “dead hand system”, and how it is that Washington thinks it can win a nuclear war. He also discusses the growing existential threat of an EMP attack.
