Con Pilot - you are a little naive - it was nothing to do with invasion of America - it was to confine any use of nuclear weapons to tactical,rather than intercontinental missiles. Do you really think that there would have been anything left to invade in either country after a nuclear war? The USSR would not have launched an ICBM attack as retaliation in kind would have been swift.Tactical nuclear weapon use on the European battlefield would have been inevitable but it would have been confined to Europe.
