Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Tripwire was always about using 'massive retaliation' as a NATO response to a conventional USSR invasion. Battlefield nukes were always a footnote.

The problem with Tripwire is that it has never completely gone away. It took a long time before proportional response was taken seriously as an alternative. And we still have idiots trying to get Georgia into NATO, with the inevitable outcome that the entire nuclear-tipped alliance will become involved in local Russian politics.
