Israel says if Iran doesn't stop building nukes it'll get it's ass attacked because Israel's the only country in the Arab world white enough to own nukes by divine right. Ahmadinejad, who maintains Iran isn't building nukes, said earlier this week that Israel is "about to die and will soon be erased from the geographical scene." Note the quotes.
I suppose it makes sense. We started the millennium off kinda slowly, but now that the West has got a full-scale offensive going on in the area that Obama's set to cut short, somebody's got to step up to the plate. And who better than America 2--Israel.
Wow that's bitter. Still, while Israel can, sociologically, hardly be blamed for acting like its colonial British mother and its shoot-first-ask-questions-never American dad, it is unfortunate that the people and history caught in the middle will be ground to dust. Or evaporated: Israel being probably the only country (excepting, perhaps, North Korea) batshit insane enough to use nukes in this day and age.
Anyways. Nukes suck, war sucks, cold wars suck, fearmongering sucks.
