Eric, the Americans are truly stupid, thank you for reminding us. We would attack a county with nuclear weapons because they have nuclear weapons.
You, Eric Yost, are no Jack Kennedy.

Andy or Irene: Besides your misanthropy, your lack of attention to what is being discussed, and your penchant for ad hominem--what are you really showing us here?

I wrote that if Iraq had been armed with nukes, US war planners would have had to "eliminate" Iraqi nuclear weapons prior to invasion. You don't need nukes to do that if they aren't in the launch phase. It's a horrible thing to contemplate, but it's just what is. For example, there were/are plans for disarming Pakistan if Mushareff gets overthrown. And it's not a political move to point it out--as if I'm advocating for something by merely pointing out what is.

Imagine if there were no plans to deal with nuclear threats. That sound any smarter to you?
