I was thinking this

Consider how tempting it was in the Cold War to try to outmaneuver the Russians and bomb them away.  They were our only enemy, so we'd be the only super power and we'd live happily ever after.  What I am saying is, what if we had actually nuked them just because we didn't have the imagination to think of suicide bombers, and guerrillas, and roadsides, and flying planes into buildings.  Consider the bizarre beauty of the notion that if only the slavs were taken out, peace would reign.
