It amazes me that the message most respondants have derived from this article is one akin to: "Wipe out Iran NOW" when instead the most obvious reaction would be greater caution and moderation in dealing with potential flashpoints. To a degree, Iran's nuclearisation can be directly attributed to Israel. If Israel did not possess nuclear weapons (and directly states as much, as opposed to its 'strategic ambiguity', then Iran would not have seen nuclear weapons as a necessary tool in achieving regional hegemony. Also, Israel's nuclear capability serves nothing other than a dead-man switch - depending on the US for military hardware and technology as much as it does, having an independent nuclear capability can only be of use after the deterrence value of nuclear weapons has passed, ie. after a war involving Israel when the use of nuclear weapons will have no strategic value, or otherwise the US would have no reason not to use theirs should the situation call for it.
