    sun tse "strategies/arts of war". Israel is relatively powerful. the U.S. is mighty in terms of economics and weapons, for the time being, at least. India and Pakistan are nuclear powers. China is already a major player. Russia is not perfect in terms of military structures but still dangerous. No one thinks about attacking China, India (except for Pakistan and terrorists), the U.S. (except for terrorists), Russia (except for Chechen fighters, islamists in Daghestan and radicals desiring a Khilafah). So, some nations talk about attacking Iran. It's not a very complicated Aristotelian syllogism. Iran having a nuclear bomb (even if Iran doesn't (purportedly) want to have it) deters possible threats. SInce the U.S. and Israel continue menacing Iran, sooner or later Iranians might produce the bomb even if they didn't want to because in the end it would be the best panacea against potential invasions and attacks. No one wants to (or would) risk a retaliation attack with nuclear missiles, nuclear submarines, etc. so, ... maybe time to think about the implications of certain decisions?
