Nukes changed it all that is correct.

But we still fight wars today and don't use nukes, so it doesn't affect us directly.

The machine gun is always in play and it's impact is felt in every war since it's inception.

The weapon that decided the fate of the USA surviving as a country was the repeating rifle and six shooter. "God created man, Col. Colt made them equal."

Mass media and the court of public opinion... that applied with the human nature of being sympathetic to the weak.
Which means when your troops are kicking some serious @$$, your population wants it to stop.
