Even More Good News: Gulf Arabs Want Nukes.Topics: Middle East News and Perspectives
I have to admit that I've never thought of there being a bright side to a mushroom cloud, but apparently Jules has found one.
I have to admit that I like the idea of nuclear-armed Persian Shiites staring at Sunni Arabs across the Gulf, the Indians and Paks staring at each other across the Line of Control, and nuclear-armed Israelis staring at all of them.
Besides, as Jules points out, the United States has yet to show any signs of having a practical strategy for dealing with a nuclearly inclined Iran, and as long as the U.S. is willing to sit around and the Europeans do the talking with the mullahs for us, nothing will be accomplished. Sooner or later the Saudis will also recognize the U.S. as a paper tiger, and we will then have successfully opted ourselves out of the equation altogether.
There will then remain just that little problem of the occasional Iran-equipped, nuclear-armed, suitcase bomber making his/her way across our southern border. In such an event, I have little doubt that the Islamofascist-appeasing politicians in Washington will find some way to explain away their failures that resulted in the sacrifice of one or more American cities and a few million lives, more or less.
