    I feel like throwing up. Typical Dhimmirat. How the hell would that "undermine" efforts to prevent Iran and co. from going nuclear? The only way it can undermine it is if you subscribe to the veiw held by the likes of bin Laden and Ahmadinejad that if America gets nukes, why can't the psychotic Iranian despots? What's really "undermining" our efforts in Iran is pacifist imbeciles like you. But it's not really about the nukes. Or maybe it is, I don't know. It just kind bugs me.

    the next use of nuclear weapons by whomever will lead to a rush by
    dozens of nations to have their own retaliatory nuke in stock.

    With the continued outsourcing of western manufacturing to third world
    countries it is inevitable that at some point of time all these despots
    can build the bomb.

    The descision to not build a nuclear bunker buster has two reasons.

    First not to accelerate the spread of nukes
    And second the realization that conventional bunker buster have a similar
    effectivness.

    If true, I agree. We need to be able to do this. Iran and N. Korea spring to mind.

    I thought every despot worth his salt was looking for nukes already. And they could care less if it explodes in the air or underground.
