    But does it mean that you should bomb his house some night?
    Offense is the best defense.
    Anyway - Israel, unlike Iran, can be completely destroyed with just 1-2 nukes - just drop them on Tel-Aviv and Israel is no more.

    Yes. Should one worry if his neighbor's just bought a gun? Especially if that neighbor told you that he would shoot you? Perhaps. But does it mean that you should bomb his house some night?
    Well we're not talking about one man with a gun. We're talking about the potential for nuclear war. So yes, if the danger is nuclear war, I would say bombing his house would be justified. Wouldn't you?

    In America, we can just trot down to the gun store and buy whatever we need. All of our neighbors have guns. Which may help to explain why Americans do not easily trust each other, and often do not even speak to their neighbors or know their names.
    Not sure if you're being sarcastic here. Perhaps where you live it is more common to own a gun, but I literally don't know a single person whom I know well that owns a gun.

    Wouldn't you at least need some kind of permit or show your ID if you want to buy a weapon?
    And what's the most dangerous weapon that you could buy in your local gun store?

    I was being a little sarcastic there. But guns are very available and not hard to buy. And in some states there are new laws to allow people to openly carry guns in taverns, universities, libraries. It all seems crazy to me.
    Вот потому, что вы говорите то, что не думаете, и думаете то, что не думаете, вот в клетках и сидите. И вообще, весь этот горький катаклизм, который я здесь наблюдаю, и Владимир Николаевич тоже…

    Amen.

    I put a smiley there, but if that's what the Israeli government thinks of the situation I'll be ready to replace it with a flat face

    Are you absolutely sure that with 1 air raid Israel will succeed in destroying the whole nuclear infrastructure of Iran? With that raid Israel will turn a possibility of war into certainity and greatly increase the possibility of nuclear explosions on its own territory.

    I don't hate it. Really, I don't. But if Israeli generals think they can bomb other country just to be on the safe side then Israel deserves all of the above.
    Nuclear weapons discipline governments, not make them rash.

    No one is saying there is an easy solution, but would you just have them accept their destruction instead? And Iran's government is already rash.

    Not really. What rash things Iranian government did lately? I'm not speaking of words, I'm speaking of deeds?
    It's easier to see maniacs lusting for blood, but they aren't really. They're just politics. Remember Nikita Khrushev and his famous speech at the UN council. Was he a maniac?

    Of course...

    I don't know what they think - but they really cannot risk by being hit first.
