OK, the title here was Israel has 82 nukes. I doubt the number is accurate,
but I believe the statement is basically correct. Is it news? Unfortunately not.
But it did generate a discussion, and a more serious one than many places
here. Is it a good thing? If not, who's gonna take em away? Israel is a
small piece of land in a sea of hatred. In some places, you can walk across
Israel in less than a day. Why dont they just leave and solve the middle
east problem? They cant. Israel is their Faith. Faith is a special category
of belief, it is so strong, that one of Faith will die before changing it. It isnt
bias, it is a reason for living. So the Jewish folk are there to stay.
Why would folk of that nature need nukes? Security. They have never
used them and do not openly admit to having them. It is their "back-to-the-wall"
guarantee. "If you push us into the sea and destroy us, you will share our fate."
The nuclear version of Masada. The Masada Option.
