Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: US vs Iraq That wasn't the answer I was looking for. The answer is, because of the potential threat of other nuclear powers. I think we all need to look at the bigger picture. You all seem so certain that the US won't use nukes, when that doesn't even matter. What matters is the potential threat of nuclear powers. We need to be more humble about our (the US) place in the world.
