Well, I usually concur in what Raimondo writes ... but this time he forgets/neglects to figure in the possibility that the israelis have built/stolen one or more neutron bombs ..... which are far more "doable" than nukes, even small nukes in an attack on Iran.
The Chinese and Japanese and/or possibly Indians, who live in the large radiation plume (depending on atmospheric conditions it heads east or SE) of an Israeli nuclear attack would be safe as babes in an Irish orphanage if neutron bombs were used .... but the damage on Iran using neutron bomb(s) would be 95% as bad as nukes. This possibility is what really frightens the Pentagon, Saudis and everybody else w/ a modicum of rationality.
