General Mattis and Brouillette want to make it easier for terrorists to blow up a U.S. city and kill hundreds of thousands of Americans. I imagine that ISIS’s leaders are already planning to steal one of Mattis’s bombs and figuring out which American city they want to nuke.
What would happen if several hundred terrorists; possibly equipped with tanks and artillery, overran a U.S. base where low-yield nukes were stored? Would we be treated to a video of American military personnel being forced to load nuclear weapons into terrorist trucks at gunpoint released on YouTube to create panic?
The last thing our military should be doing is giving terrorists the means to kill hundreds of thousands of Americans or other innocent people. That seems to be exactly what Mattis and his advisors are planning.
