How will we defend against Iran unilaterally dropping a nuke on Israel?
The gist of GWB's statement should be read as "America doesn't mind Israel taking out Iran's N-installations should she feel at risk".
The point is to stop Iran before "dropping a bomb", because if Iran drops a bomb, there will be no need for US military aid-
The middle east will be wiped out by the Israeli response.
"How will we defend against Iran unilaterally dropping a nuke on Israel?"
Shortly after Israel is nuked we nuke Iran. We will be defended against Iran doing it to us- sorry Israel.
Give the go-ahead to Israel to take out their nuke facilities before they deliver a payload.
We tell Tehran in advance that every major city in their country has already been mapped and targeted. If they attack Israel, Iran will be turned into a roiling mass of molten glass. Afterward, we give the remains to Haliburton.
because there isnt an Iranian plane with a Chinaman's chance in hades of getting through Iraqi airspace (currently patrolled by the US) or Israeli airspace on their eastern front to drop a bomb on anything significant, thats how....
Bush would have to issue a statement directly or through back channels that a nuke dropped on Israel is an act of war with the use of WMD and America would have no choice but to respond in kind.
Israel has made it quite clear to her neighbours Mecca, Medina, and the Aswan dam are legitimate targets of retaliation.
Iran cannot ever be allowed to have a nuke. Case closed.
