    Of course we all know that Iran would never use nuclear weapons on the United States.

    It's important to keep to keep in mind that, unlike Obama, experienced statesmen never reveal to the enemy upfront the extent to which they will go in a crisis situation. Why not give the Iranians something to think about while they're constantly looking for trouble with the rest of the world?

    I think "If you use a nuke on us, we will turn your country into a parking lot" works fine.

    The quickest way to degrade the effectiveness of MAD is to start making exceptions. The more times it happens, the more permissive the environment, the greater the chance for disaster.

    That said, this move appears to be pure sabre rattling on our part. Wouldn't surprise me if Obama's people asked him to do it.

    Another dangerous person that somehow seems to get voted into office in the United States. Where do these people come from in this day and age?

    Would nuclear weapons even destroy the underground facilities, or would that be a better job for bunker-busters?
