1 Argentina attacking the UK. US & UK attacking Iraq. The last example they attacked Iraq and told the world Iraq had nukes. Either George Bush was a liar or the intelligence service was amazingly incompetent?
2 Most countries in the world don't have them or want them.

4 A confession?
1. Argentina attacking the UK? No, they didn’t think they were doing that: they thought they could just walk into distant isles and take them over, no attempts being expected to stand firm and retaliate. And you know what – had they tried it in any regime but Thatcher’s they’d probably have got away with it. They assumed they were dealing with ‘just a woman’ but in reality, they had no idea they were dealing with someone with strong principles and a great deal of pluck, and huge pride in her country. Whether any other leader would have had the balls I can’t say; I rather think not: the easy capitulation might have been the order of the day.
Bush & Blair attacking Iraq. Classic case of stupidity because the idea of forcing ‘democracy’ onto peoples with vastly different cultural values to our own can’t work. Indeed, it is only under totalitarian rule (dictators) that those countries hang together as units, mainly out of fear of what being without a ‘strong man’ will deliver unto them. Just observe the rest of the Arab Spring situations. Not one has fared better since its own particular Big Daddy was slain or deposed.
2. That you are able to speak for what ‘most countries in the world’ do or do not want might strike some of them as strange.
3. What confused me? I quote you:
“3. I bet if that Israeli scientist had been working for Iran and did the same thing then he would have no doubt have been a hero in Washington”
What amazed me was that you could hold so confused a concept in your mind.
4. A ‘confession’? No, an observation
about dumb people of any political conviction, as much in your crowd as in mine.
