#1 Or you can calculate these things for yourself, if you have your handy dandy Nuclear Bomb Effects Computer. I was given one from a retired physicist.

Here is an on line site that emulates the circular computer, if you are DIY kind of person.

And HERE is a site with background information on the computer and the 700 page report.

#2 Don't fergit China-vs-india-vs-Pakistan, espec iff China + Japan andor China + PHIL start shoting at each other.

The three above are more likely to nuke each other in any East-South Asia Crisis as long as the US + Russia aren't involved.

We already know about China-vs-Japan, but come 2014 will begin the formal Govt-sharing, Coop in Nuke-armed Pakistan between Islamabad + the Taliban, etal. insurgents. MOST ANALYSTS ANTICIPATE THE TALIBAN, ETAL. TO EVENTUALLY DOMINATE THE PAK GOVT LIKE HEZBOLLAH DID, + STILL DOES, IN LEBANON.

* FYI DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > KARACHI AT RISK OF BECOMING ANOTHER "BEIRUT", SAYS FRENCH POLITICAL SCIENTIST.

* SAME > [Post-2014] PAK TALIBAN MAY BECOME SEPARATISTS.

* SAME > [Middle East Online] EGYPT'S MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD ATTACK [critixize] UAE AS THEY REACH TO ANNEX EGYPT IN SHIA CRESCENT.

Sunni Egypt + Egypt's Oil-Gas + World-vital Suez Canal under Iran, Hezbollah, + IRGC Quds Force control or domination???

In summation, IRAN may get ...
> Eastern Mediterranean = Atlantic Ocean presence in LT, as sttaed by Iran's Govt, Navy Officios + Top Eggs???
> Own Nukes.
> Iran BFF Pakistan's LR nuclear arsenal to defend the Persian Gulf regions agz the US Navy-DOD.
> Shia Islamist Iranian Control or domination of the Suez Canal???

D *** NG IT, ITS GOOD FOR THE OWG NUCLEAR CALIPHATE?

Once again, Sunni KSA can no longer afford to stay on the sidelines.

#3 Let's see...Israeli capacity: known, Irani capacity: none. Guess we know first strike results. Seems prevailing wind patterns may cause secondary fallout effects for Saudis.

#4 Bes stategy agaisnt Iran is not threatning on bombing it since Ahmedinajad told eradicating Israel is well worth the price of several million dead (what ordinary iranians think of having millions of them killed for an Arab cause, that is people who hate their guts is not known). Not the real deterrent against Iran would be to threaten Mecca and Medinah.

#5 Historically, the only real deterrent against Islam is killing a lot of Muslims.

#6 The difference between a stinking desert and a glassed-over desert: not much. The scorpions will survive, as will the vultures, most likely.

#7 ...You know, I've always thought that at least a few Israeli warheads are aimed at the Iranian oil fields and infrastructure. No way to get the oil out means the Iranian leadership will get at least one chance to reconsider their foolishness.

#10 Better think twice, Iran about these nuclear threats, a la Kimmie. One false step and yer Mahdi and his well go up in a mushroom cloud and come down as nasty radioactive daughters. And Qom becomes a glass roentgen soup bowl.

#11 If the Israelis are feeling really nasty they'll set off a couple of high altitude nukes for a big EMP foot print and kill off all of the Arab's cell phones. The Arabs would go into severe withdrawal symptoms, loss of appetite, depression, nausea, and flatulence.
