Israel and the Bush Doctrine

For all you people who criticized George W. Bush for invading Iraq because of concerns about WMD’s, what would you now advise the Israeli government do about Iran? As with Iraq in 2003, the world can only speculate as to whether Iran has a nuclear weapons program. My guess is they do. What makes Israel more vulnerable then the United States to a nuclear strike has to do with geography

 

Simple put, the large geographical size and relative isolated location makes the Untied States virtually impossible to destroy with anything short of nuclear Armageddon. The little nation of Israel, on the other hand, could be destroyed from the fallout of just one nuclear blast. So now, do we wait for evidence of Iran’s nuclear program in the form of a mushroom cloud over Israel?

 

I should hope not. Knowing that Israel is surrounded by a Who’s Who of Iranian sponsored terrorist organizations, I would hope they put the Bush Doctrine of preemptive strike into action and destroy Iran’s nuclear weapons program. If they don’t, chances are they’ll never see a mushroom cloud—they’ll be part of it.
