Okay, I don’t say Yes! But seriously, it seems pretty obvious that in the event of a war Saddam intends to blow the Iraqi oil fields like he did in Quwait (sp?). Suppose, for sake of argument, his oil fields are nowhere near residential areas. Should the U.S. start an invasion/war by neutron bombing them? What would be worse for the environment: a few neutron bombs or massive oil well fires?
Downsides: Dead civilian petroleum workers. Bad press for using neutron bomb. Residual radiation?
Upsides: Oil wells not blown and set alight.
Net zeros: Republican guard soldiers would probably be killed anyway–is radiation burning that much worse that being shredded by shrapnel?
Absent the nuclear stigma, I’d be tempted to say go for it.
