If every nation had nukes, everyone would be too scared to use them, so free access to nuclear weapons would make us all safer. That's just common sense.
No it's MAD I tell you MAD!!!!!!!!!
A madhouse, a MADHOUSE!?
Look, everyone should have nuclear weapons and receive training in their safe use. That's the only way to stop the lawlessness inherent in all people.
Exactly. Who are we to act as some kind of nanny state that says that Iranians or any other people can't defend themselves with nukes? Any state that doesn't arm itself with nukes deserves to be preemptively invaded.

eumaas wouldn't last 24 hours in a nuclear-free state.

Canadians all have signs on their front lawns saying there's no nukes on the premises, so we're all asking to get vapourized. We're less conciliatory monsters than naive.

You're right. Holy shit...I've been distracted today. I read that as Israel.

I imagine he misread "iran" as "israel" for some as-of-yet-undetermined reason. That's what I assumed anyways.

And you know what happens when you assume things: often, you are correct but occasionally you are not.

P.S. score one for assumptions.

I assumed the same, but I wanted to humiliate him.

I'm just curious: Does the thought of something like this happening scare the shit out of any of you? Or do you just think, meh, it's bound to happen anyway?

I'm more worried about making it through today without a breakdown. If I have to think about Iran (or Israel, I guess), my head might shatter like a pinata.
