Let them arm themselves

Reader comment on item: "Six Arab States Join Rush To Go Nuclear"
in response to reader comment: Nukes in Arab countries?

Submitted by weslee (Kenya), Apr 5, 2011 at 14:08

First off all Iran can't even think of nuking Mecca or Medina simply because as an Islamic state they have always wanted to be the custodians of the two holy mosques, Secondly if both your enemies have new AK47s its only natural for you to buy one too, that way neither Israel nor Iran will be arm twisting anyone with the treats of nukes, so i don't see the hullaballoo about 6 or all arab states rushing to get nukes

But from an Israeli point of view, all hell is breaking loose, simply because they are the odd ones in this whole equation
