Within the context of this previous blog entry the comments of Mr. Corbyn most germane.
"‘Nukes didn’t help USA on 9/11’: Corbyn rules out ever firing Trident"
"Nuclear weapons ‘didn’t do the USA much good on 9/11,’ Jeremy Corbyn has said following an interview in which he ruled out ever authorizing the use of Trident nuclear weapons if he becomes prime minister in 2020."
. . . .
"During an interview with BBC Radio 4, Corbyn was asked if he would use nuclear weapons. He replied: 'No.'”
"His comments mark the first time the Labour leader has explicitly rejected the use of nuclear weapons if he were prime minister"
English strategic nuclear deterrent for some time now based on retaliatory strikes of submarine launched ballistic missiles.
Trident now and Polaris before that.
Tactical atomic weaponry I assume could be also dropped on target from warplanes of the Eurofighter or Tornado variety.
Mr. Corbyn NOT the current Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Newly elected head of the Labour Party [English spelling], the loyal opposition. MR. CORPYN TOO SEEMS TO CULTIVATE THE IMAGE AND PERSONAE OF A VLADIMIR LENIN? THAT WAS MY INSTANTANEOUS IMPRESSION OF THE MAN.
Thanks to this story from the Russian propaganda media concern Russian Times.
