34. Iran Will Eventually Nuke Israel?
And there's a legitimate source for this? Not rhetoric...we got tons of that prior to the Iraq fiasco. Problem with launching a nuke at Israel is they will surely do the same in return and Ahmajeenjad or Khameni or whomever holds their "football" would have to consider that several of his cities will fry the moment the missile shows on an Israeli radar. Next, there's this simple thing called "blow back". Drop a bomb on Tel Aviv and the radiation and fall out could easily travel into Lebanon or Syria or Jordan and doing massive destruction there.

I'm not crazy about Iran having any nuclear capabilities, but building is one thing, possessing is another, using is a whole different animal altogether. Iran is looking at foreign troops on their east and west as well as its own precarious position in the Arab world (Sunnis & Shiites don't play nice together) and there's more card playing here than much more. When Saddam Hussein was taken down his people admitted that the WMD game was bluster...rhetoric to keep critics and enemies on the defensive. The "machismo" of the leaders of that culture is so deep that they will do down in flames to show "strength".
