One of the most absurd pieces of rhetorical “la-la-la-I-can’t-hear-you-ism” is the verbal gymnastics our government goes through to not acknowledge that Israel is a nuclear power. They have been for 30 years. This entire debate about Iraq and the imminent destruction of Israel if Iraq were to develop a bomb is premised on the absurdity that Israel doesn’t itself possess nuclear weapons and mutual assured destruction no longer works.
Unless you think Iranians are a suicide cult like the Nazis were. You can think that, but there’s no evidence to support it.
