    Multiple people posted that the US/Israel should just nuke Iran. Obviously these delusions fools have not through the consequences. IF Israel nukes Iran, Israel ceases to exist, as it will be nuked by multiple countries, not the least of which is Pakistan. So yes, Israel would get the first hit in, but it would be literally a fiery victory as all of Israel would soon burn. There would be absolutely NOTHING the US could do to protect Israel as it would be the US/Israel against the whole world. No contest there as the world wins in the end. If the US nukes Iran then the US economy immediately goes into a crash dive as oil prices head for the sky. With Iran and Iraq off the oil market, Venezuela boycotting the US and very possibly Saudi oil off the market, the US becomes the BIGGEST LOSER. The US may not get nuked in response, but what it would be left with wouldn't be much better than being nuked. The bottom line is unless a country wants to commit SUICIDE, nukes are totally useless.

Netanyahu trades Israel's democracy for a shtetl with German submarines
