israel and iran: nuclear weapons.

I just read an interesting article in haaretz by Yossi Melman, entitled - 'Should, and can, Israel attack Iran's nuclear facilities'. I didnt though, see a mention of the enormous elephant in the room. Israel is already in possession of over 200 nuclear weapons. It obtained these by clandestine means; it has not, and will sign the NPT; its possession of these illegal weapons is not subject to any international sanction, or indeed mention. It is demonstrably the most aggressive state in the ME, and indeed the biggest threat to peace in the ME. The double standard is transparently clear, and makes Israel's position on the possible aquisition of nukes by Iran, utterly preposterous.

Then we have the USA - the only state to have used nuclear weapons; the state responsible for in excess of 100,000 deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan, and over 1 million in Vietnam; the state in possession of thousands of nuclear weapons; the state that has invaded and/or attacked more countries since ww2, than all the remaining permanent security council members put together. It is demonstrably the most aggressive state in the world, and indeed the biggest threat to world peace.

If this was not such a serious matter, with likely tragic consequences, one would not be able to stop laughing. I do hope the American people appreciate the trebling of oil prices after America has allowed its berserker client to run amok once more.

Steveabbott latest in the line of intellectually challenged trolls to grace this website.
"It is demonstrably the most aggressive state in the world, and indeed the biggest threat to world peace." The ability to think clearly is an impediment to coming up with these sorts of theories.
Go ahead demonstrate it! By doing so you will have to show among other things that Israel is responsible for more death and destruction than any other state in the world and how the existence of Israel and its legitimate defence of its people is a threat to world peace since unlike Iran for example it does not run terrorist organisations on other states sovereign territory.

Whoever you are please let us know when Israel threatened its neighbours with annihilation or the last or any times Israelis went into cafes or on to buses or mosques in Beirut, Bagdad, Cairo or Damascus and blew themselves up together with the families who were sitting there going about their lawful business.

By claimming what you do you ably demonstrate that you are a bigot.

If Israel were preparing to bomb Iran's nuclear facilities, they wouldn't be publicly talking about it. They probably just pressuring the western powers to go along with strong sanctions against Iran. When Israel bombed Iraq's and Syria's nuclear reactors, they didn't make an announcement in advance.
