    What people seem to forget about the difference between Israeli having nukes, and Iran getting nukes, is that (1) Israel like any other nation with nukes, holds them as a DETERRENT, and NOT as an an instrument to dominate the middle east by intimidating other nations. Iran seeking nukes is not for a DETERRENT, but to ACTUALLY use them PROACTIVELY without provocation, INSTEAD as a last resort. No one seems to realize that IF Israel was an unstable psychotic dictatorship regime like it's neighbors, it would have ALREADY used their nukes by now. Israel can wipe out Iran tomorrow with a push of a button. Why don't they? Can you say the same about Iran on the first month they have the bomb? (2) While Hezbolla and Hamas are on the doorstep of Israel's borders, waiting for nuke shipments, I think it's absolutely BRILLIANT on Israel's part to make sure the Ayatolla and Ahmedinajad understand should a nuke "accidentally" fall into the hands of their pawns in Southern Lebanon or Gaza, there's now 3 vessels ready to respond right on Iran's doorstep as well. Absolutely brilliant chess move by Israel, those 3 submarines may very well be the main weapon which keeps every man, woman and child safe in Israel. Bravo to Israel and this strategic move.
