Does the United States really say "Just nuke 'em"?

Quite the eye catching headline from the English language version of Pravda.

France shows support to U.S. doctrine of preemptive nuclear strikes

Often times headline writers will get a little carried away, but look at the last paragraph of the story.
France will not, without doubt, launch nuclear strikes against terrorists or anybody else. At the same time, Chirac's statement is a demonstration of political support to the U.S. doctrine of preemptive nuclear strikes.

The story itself deals with a different kind of arms race. Pravda thinks Germany and France are competing to see which can become America's best friend the fastest. Funny, around here the MSM just says everybody hates us.
