    One thing author is failed to understand is some laws written 30 years ago, are as applicable in today?s world as last year?s snow. It has little to do with the old peaces of paper, but who is holding the hand on the button. Depending on that it is either a deterrent or the weapon of mass annihilation. India has demonstrated it to be the deterrent. Remember the stand off with Pakistan when ultimately cool heads prevailed. I can imagine the same stand off between Israel and Iran. Even North Korea, for all her madness, is not going to start firing at will because she is restrained by China. Everyone knows it is Israel?s biggest and truest deterrent. No wonder majority of Muslims and Israeli haters want Iran to get one or Israel to give up hers. Perfect execution of Israel?s demise by, if nothing else, simply removing that deterrent. But only the fools can state this openly without hesitation. The rest are going to cruise in circles sticking their fingers at Bush and 30 year old papers.

How the bagel went from shtetls to haute cuisine
