IG: "Waiting for Iran to deploy a nuclear weapon to justify a strike makes absolutely no sense. Indeed, after Iran deploys nuclear weapons, it will be too late for a pre-emptive strike." Then what you are advocating ISN'T "preemption" at all, Ibn. What you are demanding is a "preventative" attack i.e. attacking another country to prevent it obtaining a CAPABILITIY, not to preempt its attack on your forces. Int'l customary law makes allowances for the latter, but the former is strictly forbidden i.e. launching a "preventative" attack is **not** self-defense; it is naked aggression. So by all means attack if that's what you want to do. But you better not attack and then LOSE, coz if you do then you really are in deep shit.
