Old War, New War, Nuclear War and WMDs

Reader comment on item: Op Eds Now More Central in War than Bullets

Submitted by Open BSD (United States), Oct 17, 2006 at 16:56

Everything you stated in this article... 'The West Must Learn The Public Relations of War' holds true, up to the point where nuclear weapons are detonated, or other WMD's are used.

Beyond that point, the only things that will matter are how much megatonnage can be detonated onto the enemy, how many hundreds of millions of casualties can be inflicted, and how many millions of square miles of real estate can be rendered uninhabitable.

Once all the TV, Radio, and Internet communications are brought off-line by EMPs or direct hits, there will be no Public Relations to worry about.
