I thought that Lunar Campaign was that kind of conventional screw-up, because humanity had no idea of what it was doing.

I always assumed that the reason no one used nukes when BETA reached Earth was because no-one wanted to blow their own country up (Soviets and Chinese, who until too late believed BETAs could be beaten conventionally), and after that many nukes were wasted on Lasers and delaying actions a la scorched earth.
Yes, in IW or one of the TSFiA, can't remember now but it came up in the various conversations before. And why people don't use it till too late is because they are greedy, no more, no less...

When in deadly danger, when beset by doubt. Run in little circles, wave your arms and shout.
