You are not 'on the playing field' if you don't have nuclear technology.
That's a simple fact.
The world dances to the tune of the holders of nuclear technology.
Iran should go for eveything they can get.
Here's the good part, NOBODY IS GOING TO SHOOT.
They will complain. They will argue. They will threaten 'sanctions.'
But THEY WILL NOT SHOOT.
They'll send Israel who can be said to be 'protecting their space.'
We will recriminate. We will be chagrined. We will plead that Israel 'exercise restraint.
After it's over.
Israel is the guardian of the United States' interests in the Middle East.
Surely, everyone knows that by now.
