Well, Harry, that is my point

Reader comment on item: Panetta Predicts an Israeli Strike on Iran
in response to reader comment: Really

Perhaps my comment was a bit too tongue in cheek, but the point is that it is the leaders and not the inhabitants of a nuclear armed country that matter. Of course any extremist country seeking to do harm is a great concern, but my point was that Pakistan could be a ticking time bomb, and her people are definitely trigger happy. On the other hand, if the Mullah's go, Iran's people would be more pragmatic and hopefull peaceful (no guarantee though). Therefore, the horse is out of the barn already in terms of crazy countries having nuclear capabilities, and could become a severe danger at any moment. That certainly does not mean that it is a good thing for Iran to follow suit. I think that if that happens, the Mullahs and the military leaders should have big targets on theid heads immediately. That would solve the problem.
