in my view that is very unlikely

they can both obtain and disseminate those highly toxic agents of warfare much easier than anything nuclear
as a result, that would be my focus in planning for a deterrent
truly hope we are both wrong
Ok, let's just say that Iran has nukes... what would be the motivation for Iran to commit suicide by attempting to nuke israel??That something necessary may be hard and costly in no way makes it less necessary.
Unless it's a 2hr nuclear assault.... yes. If you don't remember, the same type of chest pumping was done before going to war with Iraq... the people were supposed to greet the soldiers with open arms and praise... yet, we're still seeing casualties years later.Or are you arguing that Iran would actually last more than 2 hrs. in an all out US air and Naval assault?
The intent is, after all, to remove their ability to develop nuclear weapons, not overthrow the government.
On how a general nuclear exchange between Iran and Israel would have a greater negative effect on the world economy than a conventional strike on Iran to remove the possibility of developing a nuclear weapon?Elaborate please.
You need that explained?
Iran's position on Israel is well known - they want Israel destroyed.Ok, let's just say that Iran has nukes... what would be the motivation for Iran to commit suicide by attempting to nuke israel??
Israel is a one- or two- nuke country, where just 1-2 weapons will destroy her. Up until the time that Iran could use a nuke, Iran could not damage Israel enough to destroy her, putting the cost/benefit ration on Israel's side; with the ability to destory Israel with 1-2 weapons, this ratio changes.
And so, if that ratio changes enough, the destruction of Israel may very well be 'worth it' to those that make those decisions.
