There is a lot of validity to what is being said in recent posts.
But one point is being missed. What would happen to any nation using a fledgling nuclear device on a world that is run by people like the US and Europe who possess super science surveillence and weapons of global reaching total annilhation proportions.
If for instance, Iran was to use a nucear weapon on another nation, even if with devestating effect, such as eliminating Tel Aviv in a stroke, the response would be the immediate removal of Iran through the most horrific response possible.
In an instant, the US would likely stike and remove the offending country in a heart beat.
This would not inflamme jihad like many would likely argue. The Iranians would have committed the most horrific act and would have no defense against a swift elimination.
If the US can go into Iraq on what some see as inadequate justification, try to imagine the response to nuking a friendly nations major cities.
NK, Iran, Saudia Arabia might have the means to make nuclear weapons, but they are more than 50 years out of the game.
They would never survive the usage of such weapons.
The cold war taught us a valuable lesson, there is no practical way to employ these weapons. Having them does not mean you can use them.
I LIKE that my life bothers them,
Why should I be the only one bothered by it eh.
