Nuclear war

I'm confused from this post: http://twilightstrategy.com/2011/12/12/general-strategy-defcon/

If DEFCON is 2, I'm USSR and I play CIA Created (card 26), why I risk to lose?
If USA made a  coupe, he starts the nuclear war... Am I wrong?

Yes, you are. If USA makes a coup that causes a nuclear war in an USSR's action round, USSR loses.
For that reason all cards that allow the enemy to conduct operations in your action round are DEFCON suicide if DEFCON is 2 and you have influence in a couplable battelground.

The player who loses to Defcon is the "phasing player" (in essence, it's the player whose turn it is to play a card). In the above situation, the USSR is the phasing player and the Defcon drops to 1, so the USSR loses.

Also, "coup".
