Nuclear war: pro and con
Posted by neros_fiddle at 3:44 PM
Billmon cuts through the fog and asks the fundamental question:

Is America really deranged enough to become a nuclear aggressor?

In the process, he conjures the image of the conservative media establishment spinning a nuke strike as a good thing and turning it into yet another "blame game," which I for one have no trouble imagining. Honestly, would it surprise you to read something along the lines of, "If Iran had complied with our demands to cease its nuclear program, we wouldn't have been forced to nuke them. It's their fault. Don't blame Bush."?

Check it out. Real content soon. (Really.)

UPDATE: Slate also has an interesting take on this question.
