  •  and yet in discussing (3+ / 0-)

    Iran's future regarding nuclear technology, peaceful civilian or military and weaponized,

    in building a speech around speaking truths, tough ones included...

    one taboo remains.  One nuclear arsenal in the Mid-East of serious size, and outside the non-proliferation treaty goes unmentioned and tacitly denied.

      Just like talking about 9-11 conspiracies! Doesn't exist! COULDN't exist!

      Hey, I'm NOT saying that there was a conspiracy...

      There wasn't, OK?

      No, no, don't ban me too!

    •  He did refer to Israel's nukes, obliquely... (1+ / 0-)

      he just didn't use the name Israel, but it was obvious that's what he meant.

      •  IF (0+ / 0-)

        it was obvious that's what he meant

        it's because you also know the nuclear weapons of one country alone shall not be acknowledged.

        Either that or apartheid era South Africa was doing joint nuke research with someone else?

        Or it's the best bluff since " I Was Monty's Double". There is no arsenal..and this is the best psy-op ever.

        The assumption that Iran will bet the bomb at 9:00 am  on a Tuesday, have it on a rocket by noon and fired at 3:00 pm assumes that Iran's government has absolutely zero interest in survival.

        The current debate operates in that strategic vaccuum.  Iran is a kamikaze state hellbent for national self annihilation and determined to take one other state down with them.

        It's as if an American deterrent itself has no bearing on the Iranians insane ambitions.

    •  no, he mentioned the israeli nukes (1+ / 0-)

      not by name, but it was clear enough.
