I find the position he was in morally fascinating. For either side. I mean if you're the leader of your nation and you get the call that 2000+ nukes are headed your way... what do you actually do? At that point you have to decide whether you're willing to kill hundreds of millions or even billions of people out of pure revenge. Whether you retaliate or not won't effect what's coming your way... deterrence has clearly failed.
I guess you could make the argument that ensuring your enemy is utterly destroyed gives you a slightly smaller chance of eventually recovering because leaving them in tact while you are in ruins leaves you completely at their mercy... which they've just shown they severely lack.
Still interesting to think about.
