The Middle East is a fuse to WW-III and all it's going to take to light it is that the World do nothing as has been the policy up to now.
I have heard some people I once thought relatively intelligent day things like: "Well we have nukes how can we justify say North Korea and Iran can't have them?"
Well for one thing these two Countries are run buy Racial idiots who don't give a Damn about the lives of their own people, and in the case of Iran? It is run by a bunch who are hoping to be wiped out because it will mean the return of Mohammad who will e joined by Jesus, and mark the beginning Islamic Armageddon,
They also have one idea that their Armageddon will come when the Mahdi Comes. He will be a descendant of Muhammad of the line of Fatimah, some of these nuts think he's already here waiting for the sign or some such nonsense.
Point is they are ready and want to die. and are willing to start it with nuke attacks on the perceived enemies such as the Saudis and Israel.
Some one needs to stop this before it starts and it may already be too late because China is entrenched in Iran.
So should someone take out the Radicals in Iran or do we watch the Arms race begin then watch it end at the beginning of the end of any semblance of peace as we know or wish it to be?
A global conflict with nukes could reduce this planet to the burned out cinder, Klatu talked about in the 50s original movie "The Day the Earth Stood Still."
Riyadh will build nuclear weapons if Iran gets them, Saudi prince warns | World news | The Guardian
A senior Saudi Arabian diplomat and member of the ruling royal family has raised the spectre of nuclear conflict in the Middle East if Iran comes close to developing a nuclear weapon.
Prince Turki al-Faisal, a former Saudi intelligence chief and ambassador to Washington, warned senior Nato military officials that the existence of such a device "would compel Saudi Arabia … to pursue policies which could lead to untold and possibly dramatic consequences".
"We cannot live in a situation where Iran has nuclear weapons and we don't. It's as simple as that," the official said. "If Iran develops a nuclear weapon, that will be unacceptable to us and we will have to follow suit."
