Yes indeed. Definitely a predictable response on this topic. Once again: I was stating the argument for it (and against it actually).

The way that you wrote your initial post sounded as if you supported this idea on some level... I feel strongly aginst killing civilians, and thus wrote a somewhat angry response.
THAT was the point. But, the truly
stupid people are the ones who actually refuse to even acknowledge the our government may have had, or quite possibly did
have the same argument in September. I guess they were stupid too?
yes... it is my opinion that anybody
who would support the massive devistation caused by nuclear explosions as an attempt at stopping terrorism is VERY STUPID. no offense, of course
THE POINT IS, there is SOME argument for using the bomb, or there was anyway at one point. I'm not saying it was convincing enough to "make" someone support it. The whole point of the thread was to state a possible argument for using the nuke.
sorry for the upcoming nazi analogy.... Hitler had many arguments for the genocide and murder that took place in the 40's. Having arguments for something so terrible does not justify the action. Killing civilians is never justifiable, using nuclear weapons achieves this goal and thus is in no way justifialble in this situation. I apologize if I somehow offended you, but the thought of killing many innocents to kill a few terrorists is a horrible idea.
