I grew up at a time when thousands of Soviet nuclear ICBMs were pointing at my country, and more specifically at an air force base down the road.
What is the difference with that and PRC missiles pointing at Taiwan? I’m serious. We didn’t go around ranting and raving about the Commies pointing missiles at us. I know they did in the US but that’s America (and of course in those days the missiles couldn’t even reach America )
Is it different because we had Europe in between us and the USSR?
I really don’t get it. When I hear this “600 missiles” bit I want to do a Four Yorkshiremen and go “Bloody Luxury! When I were a lad we 'ad four 'undred thousand Soviet nyoookler missahles pointed attus that cudduv blown’t world skaah haaah an 'undred taaams owavah!”
600 missiles? Nothing. Walk in the park. This shit is what I grew up with, makes the Chicoms look like a bunch a fairies.
So what’s the difference?
