Has it ever occurred to you that the leaders in Israel just possibly could be correct in their appraisal of Iranian intentions? And if not, why are you so confident of that stance? Because if you and the rest of those who believe as you do are wrong and Israel is faced with defending itself against a nuclear power - the whole damned world might just get lit up. Kind of a high cost for Iranian electricity generation, no?
But we were talking about a peace treaty that both sides (minus the nut jobs) could 'live with'?
I would counter that if you genuinely believe that the current Israeli position can be sustained indefinately then your are completely deluded.
The longer this situation continues without resolution the stronger Islamic extremism becomes.
And the rise of Islamic extremism is not in anyones best interests.
So how many Nuclear weapons are we talking here?
Say Iran develops 'the bomb' what are they going to do with it except use it to stop Israel nuking them?
Do you even know how 'one sided' this particular "nuclear stand off" would be?
"By the late 1990s the U.S. Intelligence Community estimated that Israel possessed between 75-130 weapons, based on production estimates. The stockpile would certainly include warheads for mobile Jericho-1 and Jericho-2 missiles, as well as bombs for Israeli aircraft, and may include other tactical nuclear weapons of various types. Some published estimates even claimed that Israel might have as many as 400 nuclear weapons by the late 1990s. We believe these numbers are exaggerated, and that Israel's nuclear weapons inventory may include less than 100 nuclear weapons. Stockpiled plutonium could be used to build additional weapons if so decided."
So where do you think that Iran would place it's couple of first gen bombs?
Obviously knowing that Israel has got enough to destroy EVERY major city in Iran in retaliation and of course not wanting to irradiate the very land that is the cause of the dispute.
The 'Zealots' on both sides are the enemy.
What most of us want is for Israel to abide by international law and stop playing to the home-grown extremists.
Peace in the ME isn't going to be easy. It's not going to be without blood or hard decisions.
But the fearmongering isn't helping.
