    '...at least they [Iran, Iraq, Syria] signed it.' Mark, my friend, you're making excuses for blatant hypocrisy on the part of those nations. Even at my advanced age, I can clearly see such is the net effect of your argument. Israel has historically kept a degree of ambiguity about its nuclear capabilities for good reason; doing so has served Israel well. Further, I would point out no-one has ever been on the receiving end of those capabilities. It is an ambiguity wrapped in restraint - much unlike Iran's approach to nuclearisation thus far. While I'm sure you and I both wish we lived in a nuclear-free world, Israel's policy is unlikely to change until it feels it can survive, without a nuclear deterrent, in its corner of the world. Iran is not helping Israel move that way - quite the contrary. MV
