Iran is not the only nuclear concern

Reader comment on item: Forget Syria, Target Iran

Submitted by Alexandros (United Kingdom), Sep 27, 2013 at 07:04

I would like to mention, that Iran should not be considered as the ultimate enemy of Israel in the first place and second as the only dangerous regime that might acquire nuclear weapons.

There is a theory that most of the American analysts do not approve, the theory of domino, which in this case says that if Iran acquires nuclear weapons, then probably Turkey and Saudi Arabia or Egypt might do as well. The second would be able to do that directly from the US by using it's economical power, but stil is quite difficult to convince the US for suvh a necessity, the third is quite difficult to do so by any means, but what is happening with Turkey. Once there was a Russian analyst whose name i can not recall at the moment, who mentioned that Turkey is going to be the future Iran concerning the nuclear weapon issue. He was right even though the West did n't and has n't still given the appropriate attention to the matter. Turkey has already planned a space (16 or 20 satellites) and a ballistic project, that both proceed quickly and a nuclear energy project, which also moves forward. So even though Iran might be planning on acquiring nuclear bombs, Turkey is clearly planning not only to acquire nuclear weapons, but also to be able to fire them with accuracy anywhere.

In addition to all that, they are preparing the public opinion with appropriate polls on this issue and have as an excuse that Iran might acquire nuclear weapons.

The intention of this comment is just to give some food for thought and maybe an excuse for further research on the matter.
