"They [the authors of the report] consider that nuclear war might soon become possible in an increasingly brutal world. They propose the first use of nuclear weapons must remain "in the quiver of escalation as the ultimate instrument to prevent the use of weapons of mass destruction". (Paul Dibb, Sidney Morning Herald, 11 February 2008)
"They [the group] believe that the West must be ready to resort to a pre-emptive nuclear attack to try to halt the imminent spread of nuclear weapons."
'It's a package (of nuclear and conventional weapons). The implication of this obviously is that nuclear weapons are being brought down from a special category of being a last resort, or sort of the ultimate weapon, to being just another tool in the toolbox," (Japan Economic News Wire, op cit)

If the United States punches - and I mean really punches - someone, they ain't getting up. And I'd rather see a mushroom cloud over Tehran than over New York, wouldn't you...?
Lucky for us the Soviets never had that as their policy. You better hope the Russians or Chinese adopt that for a policy or we all die. And suppose the Iranians nuke Israel? Do we nuke the Iranians? Suppose the Russians have agreed to back up the Iranians the way we say we'd back up Israel?.....

That's right, because for all their bluster, we could count on the Soviets to act rationally.

See where I'm going?
Sounds a lot like another cold war to me... Maybe we should have abandoned West Germany and Turkey because hey, what if Russia invaded..?
And if Iran were to nuke Israel, Israel would wipe Iran off the face of the planet for about the next 4,000 years or so.
