This is a point that many war-mongers out there miss on a regular basis because of frustration in the ME. Let your enemy know that if one of the newer Syrian SS missiles or if one of the Iranian Shabob 3 or 4 is launced on an Israeli city, then Tehran is nuked and Damascus is nuked. If that is not a deterrent without firing a shot then nothing is. Much like the "Wildfire" plan of the USA that provides for a nuke for Mecca and Medina automatically if any city in the US is attacked. Capische?
