    I suppose if you were to find out that Tel Aviv, or an American city had been nuked one morning, you would just blame it on the Sequester.
    You do realize North Korea got it's enriched plutonium and knowledge from, right? That our "ally" Pakistan was helping North Korea.

    Ignorant, eh? Maybe a genius like you you can explain to me why America have have enough nuclear weapons to wipe out our whole solar system but Iran can't have the wherewithal to make one?

    North Korea now has nukes.
    So? Who cares if North Korea or Iran have nukes? It's their right to built them or develop the technology as sovereign countries. Our problem has always been we bitch and moan about North Korea and Iran because we were at defecto war with them for the last 50 odd years. But we barely sneeze at Pakistan and India because we are "friendly" with them. Maybe the problem is both sides have cut themselves off from communicating properly for the last 50 years.. that we can't be open with each other.. so they don't trust us and we don't trust them. Swiss and Chinese get caught in the middle and direct information gets mistranslated.

    I don't trust Israeli collection. We relied on Israel "collection" for Iraq. Israel for a better part of 6 years has said Iran was 1 year away from a Nuke. Also Israel is arming and training MEK which is a designated terrorist group to create a proxy war. So Israel's opinion means jack **** to me. They have a hard on to see Iran gone.

    However, those facilities run on intranets.

    How exactly do you think the virus got into the nuclear facility? Did we use magic to get it in there?
    And do you think that person is still alive?

    Because it is regionally destabilizing. And your racist comments were what I was referring to. I understand you were going for a sarcastic divisive shock comment, but no one cares about that.

    Not to mention Israel has hundreds of ILLEGAL nuclear weapons themselves.

    Obviously you are the ignorant one, not understanding my post was meant to look like an ignorant redneck - the kind that thinks it's okay for Murka to have a nuke but not dem Muslim mud people - was speaking.

    Let's cut out the emotional BS, can we?

    America and much of the world (including Australia) gets a significant amount of oil from this region and so it is important. Allowing nuclear weapons to proliferate here is not a good idea. It makes everyone nervous. No one wants to see shaky governments, especially ones that threaten genocide on an ally, sponsor terrorist organizations, and posture aggressively against their neighbors, to have nuclear weapons.
