    and (everyone else) knows that if they didn't have them they would be conventionally attacked PDQ... They don't have the armed forces or man-power for a sustained conventional campaign and everyone knows this.

    But while we are on this, can you tell me who Israel has initially threatened with it's nukes? Are there any countries that Israel has said should be "wiped from the pages of history"? Has anyone even seen an Israeli nuke put up in threateing posture (that would be displayed in a bellicose or even non bellicose manner)?

    SO since you are implying Israel is the Irrational player here can you provide documentation from reputable soures that show Israel threatening to use nukes in an irrational manner.

    Thanks in advance.

      Iran has never said that and you know it. They were talking about the Israeli regime ending - not killing the people.

      BTW, why hasn't Israel signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty? Iran has signed and ratified the treaty.

      You have made a case for Iran to also possess a nuclear weapon...

        for Iran to possess a nuke? In fact, I showed just the opposite. Their irresponsible rhetoric, sponsorship of terrorist, genocidal,  para-governmental organizations (Hizbollah, and Hamas), their irresponsible and fascistic government ALL points to them not having having nukes and not being allowed to develop them.

        Iran has never said that and you know it. They were talking about the Israeli regime ending - not killing the people.
        Iran, did say that the "Zionist Regime" (Israel) should be wiped from the pages of history. They sponsor rallies where the PRESIDENT HIMSELF leads chants of "Death to Israel".

        As to why hasn't Israel signed the NPT - they claim they don't have nukes. Now, everyone in the world knows differently but... has anyone ever seen an Israeli nuke? They don't brag about them and don't threaten to use them.

        In any case, you might ask them that question. I don't really care why they didn't sign it. But I imagine that claiming not to have nukes has a lot to do with that.

        In any case I am against a full on Military Strike by either the U.S. or Israel at this point in time. So, I am not sure what you are arguing for.

          Nuclear weapons, not necessary for Iran

          They mix up nuclear technology with development of nuclear weapons. The truth is different from what they say. Nuclear technology and nuclear weapons are two different things which are not closely related to one another.

          How come we don't see this in the MSM? All we hear is the constant drumbeat of war against Iran based on misconceptions and downright lies.

          I used to be an ardent supporter of Israel 20/30 years ago - but due to events which have unfolded in those years, I no longer support the government of that country.
