Attacking another country because of what they MIGHT do in the future
Advertisements [?]
Let me get this straight - Israel wants to attack Iran because it's convinced that Iran is developing nuclear weapons. These nukes present an imminent threat to Israel's survival, therefore preemptive action must be taken to ensure that it doesn't happen. Yet there is no concrete proof that Iran is actually developing nukes. All we have to rely on is the combined intelligence agencies of the world - among whom there is plenty of disagreement.

Does this sound familiar to anyone?
