Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

If They Pull a Knife, You Pull a Gun . . .

The New York Times reports that Bush Administration published a document yesterday stating that "[t]he United States will continue to make clear that it reserves the right to respond with overwhelming force — including through resort to all our options — to the use of W.M.D. [weapons of mass destruction] against the United States, our forces abroad, and friends and allies." The implication is clear, and clearly reminiscent of statements made by Baker prior to the Gulf War: if Saddam uses chemical weapons, we reserve the right to retaliate with a nuclear strike.
