#2 Plus, if the Israelis attack, everyone will hate the Juices.

Exactly how this is different from the current state of the world is left as an exercise for the reader.

#3 No such thing as a below zero probability, but our hero, former IDF intelligence head Gazit, fails to bracket the probability -- is it infinitesimally above zero or close to 100% (p=1)? Journalism departments around the world need to add a proper intro. statistics course to their core curriculum, so that they have eve a vague idea of what bloody questions need to be asked.

#4 IMO, Iran is prolly think that, ala the "Japan/Egypt" Nuke Model, + espec as per "Japan", it can have a PRO-NUCWEAP DESIGN, DEVLOPMENT, + TESTING PROGRAM, JUST NOT AN ACTUAL DEDICATED NUCWEAP PRODUCTION LINE.

Also read, "DUAL-USE" NUKE-CAPABLE SRBMS + LRBMS [MBMS, IRBMS, ICBMS] ONLY, SSSSSSHHHHHHHH, ARMED WID CONVENTIONAL = NON-NUCLEAR WARHEADS.

Ditto as per MilTerrs, i.e. possessing Nuke-WMD knowledge + expertise, etc. just NOT any physical weapons per se [at least for a time].

The Maha-Rushian Questionne' remains can the US-West + Sunni Muslim Govts-States + UNO [UNSC + IAEA] trust Islamist Iran to be a "responsible" Nuclear Power, wid or widout any NucWeaps, + can Iran be trusted to keep such Techs, etc. from violent-minded MilTerrs, Islamist + Shia + Other, + aligned NGOS???
