    1) Iran is not a "decaying totalitarian regime". It's just not true. Achmedinajad, according to reliable polls conducted by western research orgs, has far higher support among his population than Netanyahu or Obama. Is Iran a perfect country? It depends who you ask. Is Israel? Ask a Palestinian. Iran, as a country, with the general beliefs it has today, will still exist in 6 months. 100% sure. Israel's existence in 6 months is around 95% tops. In 5 years Iran's existence is still 100% sure but Israel drops down to 20 or 30% maximum. That explains Israel's desperate strategy. The only way to raise Israel's long term survivability is through a Palestinian state created in cooperation with the region, which Israel has refused to do. 2) Nukes don't protect a dictator. That's silly. If anything nukes would result in a vast effort by the west to moderate the govt as in N Korea and Pakistan, however clumsy the effort.
