I am not going to argue either pro or anti nuclear bombs in japan. All I know is that the american and european governments like to order wars too easy and don't have the intestinal fortitude to carry through. We start wars we cannot finish.
America, and Britain did not start ww2 Pearl Harbor ring a bell? and Germany ring a bell?
Germany and Japan only started one war. How many have france, britain, spain, usa and russia?
Sixty-two percent of those polled agreed that "Iran and its president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, are friends of Egypt," though 68 percent held unfavorable views of Shiite Muslims.

I understand your concern, Beezer.
It's a different world today when it comes to certain policies. When you have a radical mindset at the nuclear table, mutually assured destruction does not balance out the threat of using such weaponry.
For this reason alone, I think the real threat to worry about is not new governments receiving or discovering fission or hydrogen bombs, but rogue, or terrorist elements developing some sort of dirty or small atomic weapon.
Radicals lack the fear of normal individuals and the rules go out the window. That is scary stuff.
I myself don't worry about Iran or Egypt or North Korea using an atomic weapon. I don't think these governments are nearly as unstable mentally as we are lead to believe. They're enjoying being alive too.

The genie is out of the bottle.....Nuclear proliferation and the eventual use of nuclear weapons is an inevitability.
Our best hope is that it wil be reasonably contained.....Doubt it though.

It doesn't matter a whit what happens to Ahmadinejad.
What matters is what the real power in Iran (the mullahs) wants to do. Ahmadinejad is just a puppet.
If the Muslims ever get their way and a bomb then they will destroy Israel, but they won't be done there. After that they will get together and head for the next closest infidel stronghold. Europe perhaps.
On Sunday, Iran's prosecutor general, Gholam-Hossein Mohseni-Ejei, embarrassed Ahmadinejad in public by saying that he could not go to Evin.
The refusal to allow his visit is another sign of tensions that have marked relations between the presidency and the judiciary, which is controlled by hardliners close to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, noted AFP.
