So the Soviet Union had 40,000 nukes during the Cold War, and they didn't launch one. Things were tense, I'm sure. But nothing came of it.
But now we're on our toes because Iran may have one in the next 5-10 years? MAY have ONE in the next FIVE to TEN YEARS? And that ONE nuclear
bomb won't even be small enough to mount on to a missile for at least a year?
So why should we be scared? If we survived the Cold War, what is so scary about Iran, even if they're building nukes?
Is it this propaganda that all of them are willing to die for their "religious cause"?
If that's the case, why not just start a war now? Load up some suicide bombers and hit Israel, then follow it up with an air attack and missile
launch. Right in to Tel Aviv. Thousands could die.
Isn't that "the cause"? Isn't that the goal?
If they're willing to die, why does it matter what method? If they're willing to die just to do damage to Israel, why wait?
That's not their goal. That's why.
It seems Israel and the US live in this one dimensional world. The prospect of one nuclear bomb pointed at either the US or Israel is too much for
them, but the thousands pointed at Iran from the US and Israel is justified.
It just makes me wonder - what's the difference between Iran, and a country like Russia?
They'd both attack and take us over if given the advantage and opportunity. That's well understood.
I'm sure the leadership of both nations aren't willing to die for some cause.
Neither is particularly a great friend of the US.
In basic terms, they're the same "threat".
There is one difference though...
Russia actually has nukes, and actually has them targeted on the United States mainland and it's interests around the world.
As long as we're playing world cop and crushing any nation who dares threaten the "peace and security" of the United States and the world, why not
just go right after Russia as well and get this whole World War III charade going sooner?
