Five Rules for Nuclear Superpowers
1. Thou Shalt Not Directly Smite Another Nuclear Superpower.
2. It is permissible to bleed another nuclear superpower by funding and arming insurgents.
3. Nukes beat armies, armies beat insurgents, and insurgents beat nukes.
4. Never be the battleground. Encourage others to fight elsewhere.
5. Power corrupts, and superpower supercorrupts.
