The U.S. is not going to use nuclear weapons preemptively, and we need to say so to the entire world. Our first responsibility is to keep ourselves safe. Our military is the best on earth—but we need to use every diplomatic tool we have to prevent nuclear conflict. #DemDebate

Here’s a tidbit from Elizabeth Warren from Tuesday night’s Democratic primary debate, and it’s interesting to see one of the Democratic candidates actually addressing nukes, let alone foreign military threats at all.
The previous Democratic administration seemed bound and determined that Iran would go nuclear, and President Warren’s administration would keep America safe by announcing to the world that the U.S. would never, ever use nuclear weapons preemptively. We also presumably wouldn’t be using them to retaliate either, because they’d all be taken out in the first strike.
