Iran is not stupid enough to use a nuclear weapon and I believe Isreal is just as aware of the international response should they use one. However,
both groups having nuclear capability could allow arab nations to fight a conventional war against Isreal. Just thinking out loud and would love to
know if this is a possible outcome, and if not why?
I think it has a lot to do with the threatening rhetoric that is coming out of Iran. If there had not been repeated threats to wipe Israel from the
map, the issue would have carried weight, but not quite the sum it does now.
One analogy is of a neighbor who threatens to burn your home down and murder your family. The police can't do a lot because no real crime had yet
been committed. But as each day goes by, you see that neighbor stockpiling cans of gasoline and practicing with his weapons.
What do you do? Simply wait for the threats to be carried out... or find a way to eliminate the threat yourself?
It's a tough question... but short of running away or failing to protect your loved ones, your options are increasingly limited with each passing.
