It's not so much the effect of the nuke blast, but the strength we would show using it. We flew halfway around the world to put a bomb next to Khadaffi, and he shut up, and stayed quiet. Why? he realized that we could and would kill him if we wanted.

A threat like Nukes is useless if the outher side feels that will not be used. if we show them that we will, and show our "allies" and enemies, muslim and non-muslim, that we will act unilaterally, decisvely, and harshly to protect U.S. interests, they will not be so quick to misjudge discretion for weakness. If you have a big stick and a dog is attacking you and you are afraid to use it so you don't appear cruel, the dog will win, and next time he sees you he'll know who is dominant, and who is submissive.
