    It's a pretty tiered operation.

    But I mean by failed state we're talking like, Syria levels of failed state in which no one force could co-ordinate an effective response to an invading force.

    but I suppose someone holding the keys and would fire off a few at US.

    Perhaps I should drink more coffee and stop talking nonsense.

    Do you think they could've developed them if we didn't allow it?

    Do you have anything more specific than some vague notion of allowing them to develop it?

    What's your point, beyond playing 'gotcha'?

    If Iran gets nuclear technology it's because we allowed it. Wrong? That's not any different than giving it to them, unless you're insistent that it's not literal enough?

    India had them and the Pakistani's were insisting they needed a deterrent, I'm sure some US President agreed to let it happen.

    Everyone's got an idea of how the world really works, but those theories are ultimately worthless without hard facts to back them up.

    if you mean that you have to support long term occupation of Afghanistan and expanding foreverwar in order to laud this girl for her accomplishments, no, that is incorrect.
