Israel And Iran - The Next Arms Race?

by ddrapayo (writer), Poughkeepsie, July 10, 2008

It is quite frightening how similar the Arms Race Between the Israel and Iran is to the Cold War

Any American older than 50 can remember the terror of the Cold War between the United States of America and the Soviet Union in the 1970s and 1980s. Both the USA and the Soviets seeked to build the biggest nuclear missles they could, and citizens of both nations lived in perpetual fear of being nuked to oblivion. Today, we have another arms race between Israel and Iran. While I have my own opinions on who is right and who is wrong, this article is not about that. Rather, it is about how terrifying this race has the potential to become. Yesterday, Iran tested missles which have the potential to reach, and possibly destroy, Israel. Should Iran launch the missles, Israel would likely launch its missles at Iran, and destroy it. If Iran still had time and missles, it might very well attempt to missle the USA. America could then launch its missles, leading to nuclear war. Even if it doesn't get this extreme, Israelis and Iranis alike live in fear of being nuked by the enemy nation. Just as Americans and Soviets lived in that perpetual fear of nuclear destruction, so do Iranis and Israelis today.
