Gates: Israel doesn't pose nuclear threat like Iran Except Israel has nukes and Iran doesn't. And Israel can make nukes, and Iran can't. Yet IRAN is the nuclear threat, and Israel isn't! And the sad thing is he stood there after saying that and wondered why all these people laughing at him. Israel has nukes. She uses the threat of those nukes as part of her foreign policy. The last time she got into a spot of military bother with Big ol' Arab Armies she readied those nukes to drop them on those Big Arab Armies, and the Israelis actually attempted to shoot down the US spy plane that had just detected that activity at Dimona. Yet her nukes aren't a threat to the region???? Hi-larious!!! Israel WILL use them if she needs to, and the people in Israel who will decide that need are a bunch of paranoid incompetents. Her nukes are a threat to the region, no question.
