Nuclear Posture Review advocates nukes against cyber attack

The Transnational posted excerpts from HuffPost here.

This is, as stated by NYT, completely new. Other aspects of the coming Nuclear Posture Review likewise give reasons for concern – alarm. What the US does here is to “conventionalise” nuclear weapons, make them more use-able, lowering the threshold of their use and grossly increase the risk of nuclear war. It also means a final goodbye to classical deterrence – which began to be undermined by the Reagan Administration and, later, with the Ballistic Missile Defence developments.
