While everybody's worried about Iran's potential nukes . . .

. . . it would be important to note that the five nations in the world with the most nuclear warheads will soon be . . . .

1.  United States
2.  Russia
3.  China
4.  France

. . . and . . .

Pakistan has nearly doubled its nuclear arsenal to more than 100 weapons and appears on track to soon surpass Britain as the world's fifth largest nuclear power. 
Wonder if Kilroy thinks we should bomb them, too?

The last I read Israel had about 200 nukes--all of them completely unmonitored by any international agency.

Fortunately for us, however, Israel's arsenal isn't in danger of being acquired by fundamentalist religious nutjobs.

Hube,

Is your post based on your numerous Iranian friends and acquaintances ... or do you just watch too much television?

Hube said...

I just like being a member of the reality-based community, is all. (Oh, and shouldn't you have asked about my Pakistani friends? Or were you too busy being snarky to actually read the post?)

Dana Garrett said...

If the the theology that justifies the illegal seizure of great swaths of the West Bank are any indication, then Israel is already under the sway of religious nutjobs. Unless, of course, Hube, you actually believe that there is a God who wants Israel to ignore the Geneva Convention about not transferring your population into a territory you occupy.

I'm not going to rehash all these old mid-east arguments w/you Dana. I could easily point out as many [supposed or otherwise] illegalities to you, maybe more re: the Palestinians, et. al., as you could to me about the Israelis. It's futile. About as futile as attempting to convince you there actually IS a difference between what the Israelis want, and what the Palestinians (and other Islamic nations) want.

*Yawn*

Steve I am not sure when your love affair with Iran began but I still feel Israel needs to bombs their nuke reactor. Or is your love affair with Iran really hatred of Israel?

Killroy, So you want israel to bomb iran's "nuke reactor, do you want Iran to bomb Israel's nuke reactor at dimona too?
