Tim Kelly of the Future of Freedom Foundation discusses his article “The MAD Myth;” why nuclear arsenals haven’t diminished much since the Cold War’s end; the Allied firebombing of German and Japanese cities in WWII; debunking the rationalization for nuking Japan; how dumb luck – not MAD detente – has saved us from all-out nuclear war; Curtis LeMay and other Strangelovian figures in US history; and why oil-producing countries threatening the petrodollar’s dominance had better watch their backs.
