We elected a madman

Seymour Hersh reports in the New Yorker that the Bush administration is considering a nuclear strike on Iran.
One of the military’s initial option plans, as presented to the White House by the Pentagon this winter, calls for the use of a bunker-buster tactical nuclear weapon, such as the B61-11, against underground nuclear sites. One target is Iran’s main centrifuge plant, at Natanz, nearly two hundred miles south of Tehran.
Will the only country to ever use a nuclear weapon in war use one a third time?
