Reader comment on item: Israel vs. Iran
in response to reader comment: the only way out

Much as I agree with you, there is still a stark difference between a conventional war deterrence and a nuclear one. It might have seemed inevitable that Israel's nuclear deterrence brought about the nuclear ambitions of arab states. Iraq tried, Syria tried, and now Iran. The funny part is, a country does not really need the means to develop nuclear weaponry themselves. Between North Korea and Russia and Pakistan, it is only a 24 hour flight away.
