U.S. May Launch Nuclear Attacks on Iraq

TEHRAN - Head of Pentagon's Commission for Military Policies, Richard Pearl said that although the U.S. conventional weapons are much more advanced than those of Iraq, no strategist would reject the logic of using nuclear weapons against Iraq.

Also, an advisor to the U.S. defense secretary, Pearl said in an interview with the German **** Spiegel ***, on Monday that the exact time of the U.S. attack against Iraq was not determined.

He added that the Iraqi army has become much weaker than the time of the Persian Gulf war, saying that the number of the Iraqi troops has reduced to one-third of that time.

The U.S. official further said that the United States would not use its ground forces in war against Iraq, noting that the U.S. would launch air raids against Baghdad.
