Interesting indeed.

Does really the average US citizen believes such things?

Because, as it happens, while the Third Reich never had any nuclear
weapon (but they did have chemical weapons that they never used...), a
few other totalitarian regimes actually did, and yet the only power
having ever made an actual military use of nukes are the US
themselves. Not to mention the current plan to develop "small" nuclear
bombs to penetrate the bunkers where the headquarters of hostile
regimes may be located...

How important, one wonders, is it for US nationalism and imperialism
to feel being "on the side of the angels"?
