    Iran is not that stupid, but neither was Hitler. Maniacal but not stupid. Look at the facts: A nuke strike by Iran would result probably in the missiles being blown up in the sky over Saudi Iraq or Jordan; given the prevailing winds, the fallout would not affect Israel but rather Muslim states AND Iran!; the target is not Israel but Europe; by the time the Eurabians even tried to recover from their hopes that the Jews would again be the targets (sound familiar?) most of Eurabia will have been decimated; the next and REAL war will take place between former allies Turkey and Iran as they fight for who hpuses the new caliphate. Turkey believing it historically has the right being the scion of the Ottoman empire and holding legitimacy to numerous genocide. Iran, with the presence of the Ayatollahs and the support they recieve from Jimmy 'the 12th Imam' Carter who has openly proclaimed Qom the new home. What is sure is that the over 1million that died in the Iran-Iraq war will be nothing compared to the deluge f the Turkish-Iran war. The other residents of the Mid-East need only sit back and watch the enemies fight to the death and write the hstories describing "once upon a time." The fallacy of the Iran buildup - much like Saddam's - des not affect Israel. Can you say "pop go the weasels?"
