    It would give them the ability to keep Israeli security on high alert forever. That would kind of suck...

We've gotta keep the military-industrial complex rolling in cash, too. God forbid we go a couple of decades without war.
    We were very successful in fighting WW2.

    They get a place at the nuclear table and a virtual guarantee that the US nor any other western power would not be able to take military action against it for any reason. They also become the defacto leader in the region especially in the ME. They can no project power whereas before a nuclear weapon, they could try but the risk of backlash would be too high. They also would then be the power to equalize Israel in the region, as well as have the ability to by threat of force, get much more of what they would want or need.

    It doesn't take much imagination to see the benefits does it? If there were people with baseball bats who are getting their way and you don't have a baseball bat, they get to push you around because you don't have a baseball bat. Get a baseball bat and now you won't get pushed around as easily as the threat of them getting injured is now higher than before.

He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    But given the fact that Israel already has nuclear weapons, its perfectly fine with you that Iran remain on high alert, forever?

    Ok, I'm thinking but not certain?? That we agree that it would make sense for Iran to want a nuclear weapon as a deterrent, which is pretty much the reason that others now have them. Nuclear weapons are a deterrent, not an option. As I've stated many times around here. Either everybody gets them, or nobody has them, and preferably, nobody has them.

    Israel was right. It looks like force is the only thing these ****ers respect. I predict there's going to be a war eventually. Obama either lied to us, or is a fool.


    Obama fed us a bunch of hooey.

    how can this be? Justabubba told me that its Israels fault and Iran "has never lied"?....
