US Navy SEALS Trained to Use ‘Backpack Nukes’ As Nuclear First Strike Option
‘The US military lists these devices as “Special Atomic Demolition Munition” (SAMD), and it’s more than likely that these programs have advanced in their scope and sophistication since the 1980′s. Do not believe for a minute that this program was “halted” in 1989 as the official line goes.
It’s also important to note here that this “New Look” strategy is designed as a nuclear first strike against a Soviet ‘conventional’ attack, and not as retaliation for an opposing nuclear attack on the US. This throws the whole orthodoxy of “Mutually Assured Destruction” (MAD) into disarray now, as we get a real insight beyond the comfortable assurances given to the public by US politicians and academics.
