You know we've been living under the threat of some nuclear cataclysm fro 60 years now. Despite the thousands of nukes and hundreds of provocations, no one has ever dropped one (well other than the U.S., who needed 2 to make its point). Only a true madman would ever really push that button, given the mutually assured destruction that turned the cold war into a bluffing match. Iran, Israel, Russia, Syria et. al. play to their constituencies; riling up the (dumb) masses to win one for the gipper, and stop the godless spread of Islam/Christianity/Judaism/Communism/Fascism... whatever. And yet the Big One never seems to come among these bitter players. Of course, there's Darfur, but they're just negroes without oil, so who cares? Much more fun to spew narrow minded, meaningless epithets on board like this; confirming that the common man is as stupid as the politician is venal. Don't forget that it might just be G-d's plan to let us wipe each other out. Wouldn't be the first time.
