Jacob wrote, "Our Endangered specie/people of Israel have enough Nukes to defend themselves." The USA has found by long experience that there is no such thing as a defensive nuke. What we do is a complex balancing act. We say "If you kill us we will kill you back afterward." And then we do complex risky brinksmanship. It is very expensive to be ready to kill nations after they kill us. It is even more expensive to attempt to shoot down nuclear missiles aimed at us. If there is a nuclear war in the middle east it will be bad for Israel's ecology, for the crops and the water table. And to the extent that Israel's contamination winds up in the mediterranean, Israel will not make any friends in any nation that has a mediterranean shoreline. I strongly doubt that Israel would survive for 20 years after an Israeli nuclear war, and no more than 50 years after an active nuclear diplomacy. But if Israel did choose to go their own way it would be good for the USA. So I mustn't complain.
