Everyone knows that Israel is a nuclear power, with the ability to deliver at least fifty nuclear weapons, anywhere in the world. This would effectively deter any self interested country, which covers most of the important ones. It would not deter Iran or other suicidal crazy people, which is why countries like these should take note quickly. Israel is very likely to nuke them just ?Before? they become nuclear powers, because after they become nuclear powers, the choices disappear and nuclear war becomes unavoidable. Why limit any of this to Lebanon, Israel is capable of destroying Mecca and not even America would be able to do anything to stop it. And they say ?We? target civilians. We have the ability to eradicate ALL of Islam. We stay our hand, because we are Nice.
