Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS) said on Fox News Channel that the United States would not rule out using nuclear weapons against the Russians.
“We don’t rule out first-use nuclear action,” said Wicker, the number two-ranking member on the Senate Armed Services Committee.
“Military action could mean that we stand off with our ships in the Black Sea and we rain destruction on Russian military capability,” he said. “I would not rule that out. I would not rule out American troops on the ground.”
To casually suggest that we’re ready to nuke the Russians is an absolutely stunning and foolish thing for any elected leader to say – whether it’s true or not.
“It literally is insane,: former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) told Tucker Carlson. “Anyone who would propose or even consider what he is saying as an option, must be insane, a sociopath or a sadist.”

It’s unclear what he smoked before this interview.
Senator Wicker’s suggestion that we should consider carrying out a nuclear first strike against Russia exposes just how ignorant, insane, and sadistic he and other like-minded warmongers are. pic.twitter.com/JmOaNGhkkO— Tulsi Gabbard ? (@TulsiGabbard) December 9, 2021
