Anyone who spent time in Germany was well aware of the slang motto "fight like hell for 3 days then blow up the world" I've used it in other posts about discussions covering NATO's (in)ability to stop a conventional (non-nuclear/limited nuclear) WP attack. It wasn't public knowledge but it was accepted "dogma" amongst the Canadian brigade.
"Reforger" was considered a bad joke as the airbases would be a poisoned NBC soup as would all the communication nodes, concentration points, etc. Thanksfully we now know the Soviets were more worried about a NATO attack (our forward deployment) than attacking themselves.
Words ought to be a little wild, for they are the assault of thoughts on the unthinking - John Maynard Keynes.
