Can you imagine if this had been in place with Iraq?
The first example for potential nuclear weapon use listed in the draft is against an enemy that is using "or intending to use WMD" against U.S. or allied, multinational military forces or civilian populations.
This would almost be funny if nuclear weapons weren't so goddamn extreme. I am really just too tired to even make any kind of clever quips about this kind of shit anymore. I can see the annals of history 5000 years down the road, with the chapter heading "What were they thinking?"
I can only hope that in my bad mood today I am misunderstanding what this whole thing means.
