Anyone may be nuked now

Feb 1, 2003

The Washington Times has a quite scary article from yesterday. Apparently the US military want to play with their nukes, since they never got to use them on the Soviet Union — luckily they now have Iraq to test it on.

The chances are probably very small that they'll actually go and nuke Iraq, but that a leaked secret memo explicitly allow a nuclear response to a non-nuclear threat is real news in US military doctrine.
