My apologies. What I said was my own opinion.
Since I am aware of this rule now, maybe ThomasT can post his mainstream article that backs up his comment that
I may be wrong, but this seems to be an opinion posted as fact.
You are probably right. And if it does happen, lots of people will die. And there will be even more people who will grow up with very anti-American views.
Like I said, it would be better if no one had nuclear bombs.
A vested interest? Maybe they do. But a state cannot, and should not pass another states boarder without premission.
What if Iran decided they had a vested interest in stopping a potential stike from Isreal, backed by the US? Would you agree also that they have a right to strike?
Oh very true, but, if you will excuse the analogy, we are not their parents. We do not have the right to tell anyone what to do.
Like I said, I would rather no one had nuclear bombs ...or guns for that matter. All you can do is live in the world, respect those around you, and deal with...
Personally, I am not comfortable with any state having 'nukes' ...but it seems hypocritical of any state that has a supply of nuclear weapons to tell another they cannot, if that is Irans ultimate purpose.
Nothing more annoying and likely to set off tempers than saying do as I say, don't do...
