re: #11 Cap’n Magic
There is no ‘American Empire’, and the only people I hear using that term seriously are moonbats.
On a serious note, how many nukes Israel has is not relevant. Having nukes only raise the cost of someone firing nukes at you, they don’t reduce the damage your nation would suffer from them. Iran might well decide if it gets the bomb that its ideology demands Israel’s destruction, regardless of the consequences. That’s unlikely, but not impossible when dealing with a fanatical regime.
