A nuclear attack on this country would be the ultimate opportunity-creating crisis. Unprecedented destruction and chaos will be used by statists for unprecedented power grabbing and centralizing of power. That's why rerouting America's defense dollars to liberal programs are a win-win for Democrats. They insist our unilateral disarmament will prove to an innocent world that America, the world's chief evil-doer, is a threat no more. And even if that proves mistaken and we get nuked, they'll insist everything about America that went beforehand is to blame and they'll claim a mandate to rewrite American law and culture from the ground up. Hence a strong, secure America is libs' worst nightmare.
