  2. Oh, but Israel doesn't have nuclear weapons. That would be in breach of pretty much every single anti-proliferation treaty in existence and therefore couldn't possibly happen.

    Any suggestion otherwise is anti-Semitic.

  3. I had an aunty Irene once.............

    Oh yeah, Israel, Nuclear weapons, why...that's preposterous!!!!!
  4. Just the usual annual kosher willy waving intended to get more aid out of the Yanks.
  5. On the plus side, Iran is huge so it won't be all of it that gets melted, just a few small bits. Unless the Israelis have developed something special.

    All the same, I see a commercial opportunity. How about a geiger counter insert for vehicle exhaust pipes, so we'll know when we've been sold radioactive Iranian oil?
  6. Pure sabre rattling.

    It's not exactly a state secret that if she launched one for real in a offensive preemptive strike mode, Every Israeli on the face of the planet would become a target of hate, and i would think it reasonable the same for all citizens of the world's nuclear playing country's.
  7. Couple of million dollars going spare now too....
  8. What about Irans 2000 or so mobile rocket launchers ? If Israel attacks the nuclear facility, then Iran will just send some rockets. Not sure about the range capability.
  9. I read somewhere they could hit Eilat. Not sure how reliable that is though.
  10. As opposed to all the Love they feel right now? Isreal is the Man U of nations: everyone hates us and we don't care.

    I don't think the Red Sea Pedestrians are going to express deliver Instant Sunshine to Iran anytime soon, but it has nothing to do with how the rest of the world will react and everything to do with screwing as much "aid" as possible out of the Septics. It's a more sophisticated version of the North Korean Nuke Tests; nice country, a shame if something happend to it...

  12. If World War III starts up in the Middle East vehicle exhaust emissions in Europe will no longer be a problem.
