    I don't believe there's any evidence that Israel has even one nuke. I know there's a ton of speculation that they have nukes but no reliable source that I'm aware of will confirm that.

    How about you show you have an understanding more cursory then having the capacity to find Iran on a map?

    You can say you understand, but until you show it you're just a blowhard.

    You do not appear to understand the NPT
    You do not appear to understand Iran's facilities

    Why again do you think you can discuss this topic intelligently?

    Would you be so kind as to explain the aforementioned with citation and references. Primary sources please...

    Iran does not want a regional conflict. But that same time they do want nukes partially for the same reason North Korea does.

    And no one here has ever pointed to a single instance where the Mullahs risked their own lives and power. Using a nuke would end their regime.

    Iran in isolation having a nuke is not a real big problem. It's everyone else in the region scrambling for one that is the real powder keg.
    This is a rather naive point of view.The rest of the region fears Iran having nuclear weapons. Iran is views as a threat to peace.


    In a study done by the "Arab American Institute six Arab nations poll show real concern with Iran’s current and future role in the region."
    The poll surveys six Arab nations’ attitudes towards Iran and other Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) issues. The key finding is that a substantial majority of Arabs believe that Iran plays a negative role in both Iraq and the Arab Gulf region.

    Executive Summary

    • Most Arabs look askance at Iran's role across their region, with substantial majorities seeing Iran playing a negative role especially in Iraq, Bahrain and the Arab Gulf.

    • Iran's favorable ratings have dropped significantly in recent years. It is seen as not contributing to "peace and stability in the Arab World" and there is scant support for Iran's nuclear program.

    • Significant majorities desire that the Middle East become a "nuclear free zone". When asked if they "had to choose one nation other than Israel to be a nuclear power in the Middle East" - for most Arabs, Egypt is the preferred choice, followed by Turkey.

    • There is regional support for the GCC's new and more assertive role in Bahrain, Yemen, and in their concern with Iran's nuclear program.

    • Lebanon's attitudes toward Iran differ from the rest of the region, revealing a troubling sectarian divide.

    • Overall, Turkey receives the highest favorable ratings in most Arab countries, with the U.S. Receiving the lowest rating in every country but Saudi Arabia, where Iran is lowest.

    "There is extensive evidence Israel has nuclear weapons or a near-ready nuclear weapons capability."

    "According to the Natural Resources Defense Council and the Federation of American Scientists, Israel likely possesses around 75–200 nuclear weapons.[39][5] Imagery analysts can identify weapon bunkers, mobile missile launchers, and launch sites in satellite photographs.[citation needed] In May 2008, former US President Jimmy Carter stated that "Israel has 150 or more [nuclear weapons]."

    List of states with nuclear weapons - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    "Four years after the United States dropped atomic bombs on Japan in August 1945, the Soviet Union detonated its first nuclear device. The United Kingdom (1952), France (1960), and China (1964) followed. Seeking to prevent the nuclear weapon ranks from expanding further, the United States and other like-minded states negotiated the nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) in 1968. In the decades since, several states have abandoned nuclear weapons programs, but others have defied the NPT. India, Israel, and Pakistan have never signed the treaty and possess nuclear arsenals."

    Wouldnt it be funny if Israel was bluffing? Or some ironic humor lets invade Israel and see if they really have any WMD. I mean just like Iraq there are stories that say that they have WMD's. :P
