Putin is losing his war badly, so bad he threatened nukes. What should the response be if he does?

Biden has unified the free world against an existential threat but the Party of Freedom still hates him.
Tom will be along shortly to explain why this is.

Not only do the MAGA-ots hate Biden, but many of them also support Trump's fake friendship with Putin and further support Putin's invasion of Ukraine. As recently as last month some of Fox New's vile mouthpieces were supporting the invasion!

I could see that working but there would need to be more formalized procedures in place to ensure that the crotch fruit of the Best Americans are not thrown into the meat grinder used to launder borrowed money and redistribute it to those Best Americans. Otherwise it kinda defeats the purpose.
Well, there's always bone spurs and a few, special National Guard Units that can be guaranteed not to be placed on active duty.

It's not our war, NATO will move against Putin, and NATO has nukes. More likely, Putin will use small nukes and attempt to scare Ukraine into shutting down its war. If Putin does use a nuke, my guess the people and military of Russia will shut Putin down.
Ummmm, WE (the US) ARE NATO. So if NATO moves against pooty, WE move against putty.

1) a good percentage of Russia's nukes are probably non functional
2) the US military knows where every one of them is, and has a launch plan ready to go that will send high-speed cruise missiles to take out every launch site
3) a Russian nuclear strike is unlikely anyway, as even if Putin orders one there are people in the chain of command that will probably stop it
4) Putin is likely to experience his own brand of special tea, or a failed balcony railing in the near-ish future anyway
Sadly all of your points are optimistic fantasy. I wouldn't put any money on any one of them being true.

Not really.

For example, when Russia grabbed Crimea, WE did not move against Russia then because some of the other big NATO members did not want to jeapordize their energy supplies.

They took Georgia in 2008 and Crimea in 2014. Why did NATO not stop them from both??
.

Because Obama was weak, of course.

More specifically, Obama was weak in that he allowed the other major NATO members to determine NATO's reaction... you might call it democracy (and you might say that this proves democracy itself is weak).

2008 was W the Stupid, who after botching Iraq and Afghanistan and the economy, was in fact very weak. Georgia was on the other side of the world and not in NATO. Saint John said We are all Georgians now and called it a day.
