DL: "Preemption or not" It is not "preemption" if you attack someone to PREVENT them gaining a capability that you already possess. Think about it, Daniel: you are claiming a **right** to go to war because there is an arms race going on and you "fear" what the other side will do once they catch up with you. As a loophole for launching wars of aggression THAT excuse is big enough to drive a Merkava tank through. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know: Israel is special, Israel is unique, Israel fears *this* and is threatened by *that* and can't afford *this* and can't wait for *that*. It is all merely a claim for Israeli exceptionalism. Sorry, Daniel, but Israel simply ain't that exceptional.....
