Not sure what to think about this issue
on the one hand, something does need to be done and it does noeed to be effective
on the other hand, is there any other moderate approaches that could be used

Bit of Military Humour
this is always such an interesting topic as there was obviously no conventional war, which means there is no evidence as to what could have happened. There are so manu different things that hve to be taken into account though, it is easy to jump at this argument without even loolinh at the much roader topics. Many like to focus on the power of the russian t64 tank and how that would have win the war.
The war would almost certainly have started with the Soviets making huge gains mainland Europe due to the NATO armies taking some time to deploy its full strength. However i feel that the Soviets would have suffered from the usual problem and would soon overstretch. Russian logistics were notoriously poor and would have struggled to cope with the rapid advance.
Many say that the Soviets could have taken more casulaties but i feel it is not the case. Many of the pact countries didnt want war, especially on the side of the soviets. Many feel that some military units would have defected
The soviet war effort was backed by a poor economy, and many forget how important the economy is to making war. NATO was backed by the USA who had been making money and making warsaw pact look very poor.
Last but not least in the use of ICBM’s and other nuclear weapons. Both sides had policies of holding back at first but would almost certainly use them when the shit hit the fan. The USA had the most effective missile launch and delivery systems and outmatched the rugged soviets ones.
No matter what happens, the world would have been totally decimated, nearly all major european cities would be flattened and the war could easily spread out of europe.
and so that is my opinion of what could have happened, feel free to tell me if you think i am wrong and why
