7. Yeah, Threads suggests that Russia is the first to use nukes, but it doesn't matter.....
... who starts it, because we know how it will end. And it also shows how both sides had continued provocations and escalations -- so it really doesn't lay blame on either government.
What I found very interesting about Threads was how they theorized it would come about because of fighting over Iran, and ... well... it seems like a similar scenario could play out between the other governments in that region, even if the US and Russia stayed out of it.
And if, God forbid, we DID get involved aside from diplomatic efforts, just because Iran may not have nukes capable of reaching us doesn't mean their allies might lack that capability.
