Nuking Baghdad is an Option-John Bolton, the State Department's arms control chief, said that the US has dropped its long-standing policy against the use of nuclear weapons against non-nuclear countries. It's unlikely that they would be used, but the idea that we could might give Saddam some sleepless nights. Just before posting this, I spotted Beauty of Gray's take: the nukes could be used either to respond to a biological or chemical attack, or on a tactical level to root out key hardened targets. Good analysis.
