GUEST,David BS: Palestinian 'facts' (677* d) RE: BS: Palestinian 'facts' 27 May 08


Whoa there Arnie,
Remember Iran has never attacked a single country that I am aware of.Its war against Iraq was launched by Iraq with some help from the USA.

I am certainly not advocating a nuclear armed Iran ...that would be another nail in the coffin for the peoples of the Middle East.
But Iran is surrounded by hostile nuclear states.
Israel to the west which will not even acknowledge it has nuclear missiles pointed at Iran.

There is a American nuclear armed fleet just a few miles off shore in the Gulf [imagine an Iranian nuclear fleet in the Gulf of Mexico!] and there is also an unstable nuclear Pakistan to the east.

I dont believe in any of this guff about any one particular nationality or religion being prone to suicide or martyrdom. That smacks of a kind of euocentric orientalism of the kind Edward Said wrote about which is essentially a form of racism.

What about a nuclear free Middle East or would that be to much to ask of both the USA and Israel?
David
