Ummm...yeah I'm pretty up to speed on the Korean War. Note the word "lately". My point is that SINCE N. Korea got their mitts on some Nukes it
has forced both sides to behave towards one another...hasn't it?
Developing missiles which are now capable of ranging in on Alaska and Hawaii which puts their development squarely in US interest.
Exactly. Why do you think we haven't re-invaded them at some point. Granted...I wish our leaders were responsible enough to run around bombing
everyone we don't see eye to eye with...but history tells us that this isn't very likely. What other method do you propose to rein in our own
ridiculous Empire? Voting sure as hell doesn't work...does it?
Saudi Arabia has already mentioned they would have to step up their game plan to counter Iran in that case. Have you done your historical
research on the rivalry between Arabs and Persians or Sunni and Shiites?
So what? It is simply not possible to stop the dissemination of technology. You can slow it down and maybe make it hard for your secrets to get
out...but there is not a single example in the last 2000 years of a military technology that a nation tried to keep "secret" or tried to keep out of
the hands of it's enemies successfully.
The question isn't if
Saudi Arabia and Iran will get nuclear weapons...it's when
will they do so? I would feel much more comfortable
having them do it more overtly and in the open than find out that either one of them bought a nuke from Pakistan than hard way.
Check out this link...it's a listing off of fusor.net of all the Americans who have created nuclear FUSION reactions in their basements and garages
with parts from Home Depot and science supply stores. There are a good number of high school kids and one girl that's only 13 yrs old.
So what are we going to do? Level the whole damn country because they are enriching uranium? Are we going to back in 10 years to seize all of their
hydrogen atoms so they can't build an H-bomb when the Iranian scientists finally catch up to our high school kids?
Christ...knowing full well that every country on planet earth will have nuclear weapons (or worse) sooner or later....I personally think the best
policy is to not be complete a^^holes to anyone so they don't WANT to use them on us.
Just my thinking.
