#4 Again, iff Radical Islam wants Parity, Superiority, or Dominance for the so-called "OWG/GLOBAL CALIPHATE" vee the Non-Islamic World, then they need NucWeapons + other SuperTechs, etc. to be so.
The "JAPAN/EGYPT" MODEL = IRan is effectively admitting that it + Caliphate is not ready yet to compete or destroy Western + JUdeoCHristian hegemony, BUT THAT THEY WANT THE ABILITY TO PRODUCE NUCWEAPS IN A PINCH WHEN REQUIRED.
AKA "YES, WE WANT NUCLEAR WEAPONS, BUT SSSSHHHHH WE AREN'T READY FOR MAJOR OR TOTAL WAR RIGHT NOW".
