DRAFT: Why it's OK for Israel to have nuclear weapons

<p>Iraq was one of two mistakes, either we shouldn't have bothered, although enforcing the sanctions from Gulf War I was a not inconsiderable expense itself. Or we should have gone in prepared to occupy the place as we did Germany.</p> <p>&#160;</p> <p>The problem with Iran is that it's simply too close to Europe and Israel to risk an unstable nuclear power.&#160; If Iran gets nukes, so will the Saudis, and one or both will use them.&#160; It's OK for Israel to have them because they won't use them first. The very same reason why it's OK for Britain and France to have them. KSA and Iran, like North Korea, can not be trusted that way.</p> <p>&#160;</p> <p>We don't need Saudi Arabia for oil, we're completely self sufficient in energy production. We are still involved for two reasons, Allies energy needs, including Britain, and Israel. Other than that we can walk away. We don't like them much either, but better than the Mullahs. If there is a nuclear war in the future, this is where it will start.</p>
