Description

A new report says Washington considered using nuclear weapons against Afghanistan after it attacked the country in 2001. A political advisor to then-German chancellor Gerhard Schroder told German daily, Der Spiegel, that the nuclear option was one of the possibilities. Michael Steiner said even the papers were written. He said the administration of former U-S president George W. Bush played through all possibilities. He added that the then-German chancellor feared the Bush administration was overreacting to the Nine-Eleven attacks and refused declaring unconditional support for them. The United States attacked Afghanistan in 2001 under the pretext of toppling the Taliban; a war which continues to this day and has left thousands Afghans dead.
