The news reported that Israel will soon have two new nuclear capable submarines. As President Bush said, “the best defense is a good offense” and “what good is an offense if it remains unused”. Not only that terrorists need to be fought “over there” so they won’t make it “over here”. Put all that together and the world is in deep nuclear trouble.
Iran wants nuclear technology to produce power. Their obstinate, pathological leader refuses to work with the international community on his stated aim.
On the other side of the fence are more obstinate, pathological leaders. The United States and Israel have significant nuclear weapon capabilities although Israel hides theirs behind a policy of “nuclear ambiguity”.
The contract to buy the two German made Dolphin submarines was signed July 6th. Germany is picking up 1/3 of the $1.3 billion cost. The German taxpayers just forked over $433 million in taxpayer money for weapons. This pales to U.S. military assistance for Israel in the neighborhood of $2.4 billion.
Less than a week after inking the deal, Israel launched its all out war on Lebanon. One might think adding nuclear capabilities to the region in a time of war to be unwise, unless there is a plan to use such a capacity in the near future? The subs will be delivered "shortly".
A clear message is being sent to President Ahmadinejad. Is he so pathological he cannot see or hear it? His counterpart in the United States has shown his blindness and deafness on numerous issues.
As Gandhi said “An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind”. Well folks, that appears to be where our leaders wish to take us. Stop the planet so we can get off….
