    "(Israel) uses the threat of those nukes as part of her foreign policy." johnboy loves to show off his "knowledge" (and I use the word VERY, VERY loosely) of international affairs. Yet he can't tell the difference between DETERRENCE and THREAT. He comes from a nation that is pretty isolated from immediate military threats and yet Oz allocates 2% of its GDP for its military (compared to China's "official" budget of 1.35%). Is the Oz military arsenal a THREAT to the region? Of course not, stupid! In the Oz White Paper for the military services, one of its stated PRIMARY aim is to DETER or DEFEAT any external threat. This was recently REINTERATED in a major security review. Israel, which is surrounded by hostile islamic nations in a state of war with it, has the RIGHT to its defence capabilities - including nuclear - to DETER or DEFEAT any external threat. Just like Oz. johnboy is just too dense to know that.
