And, to add to Marc's comments (don't faint, Marc :-), we would suffer greatly in both the short and the long run were we to so over-react.
I believe that sometime soon, someone will use a tactical nuke to take out a carrier battlegroup - they have no other way of doing it. If we were to use nukes now, then we would create a situation where we had sowed the seeds of our own loss. We would have the moral low ground when that event occurs. We need to always take the high road, so that, if and when the time comes that we have to respond in kind, we can do with honor. Jon Marc A. Schindler wrote: You weren't attacked by a nation.
