from the article: ( aside from "breakout capability" -this scenario envisions actual weaponization)
do you agree with this? I sure don't . Israel/Gaza/west bank is it's own set of problems ,but this is absurd to sayIsrael's regional nuclear monopoly, which has proved remarkably durable for the past four decades, has long fueled instability in the Middle East. In no other region of the world does a lone, unchecked nuclear state exist. It is Israel's nuclear arsenal, not Iran's desire for one, that has contributed most to the current crisis. Power, after all, begs to be balanced. What is surprising about the Israeli case is that it has taken so long for a potential balancer to emerge.
that Iran "balances" Israeli nukes.
While Israel has been vocal so has Egypt, and the other Sunni states againt Iranian negotiations/nukes.
The balance of power we are all concerned about now is between Saudi Arabia and Iran as the 2 big powers, and Sunni v. Shiite states
I just disagree with that whole article premise, my friend
