Compounding Government Mistakes, Nuclear-style

Steve Gordon over at Liberty for Sale, notes that a draft policy doctrine put forth by the administration would authorize pre-emptive nuclear strikes against an adversary "adversary using or intending to use WMD against US, multinational, or alliance forces or civilian populations."

Woo fucking hoo! Now, instead of just getting a bunch of ground troops stuck in a tar-baby of a war under false pretenses, we're gonna up the ante by nuking the shit out of countries that talk trash about WMDs. Really, does this seem like a good idea to anybody? Bueller?

Read the whole post, it's quite good.

Yours truly,
Mr. X
