Iran and MAD
Think this through.
MAD, Mutually Assured Destruction.
MAD says you both die.
Thats not a deterrent for Iran its an Incentive.
"American Thinker" make the same case we've been making.
He may say it better:
"In this context, mutually assured destruction, the deterrent that worked so well during the Cold War, would have no meaning. At the end of time, there will be general destruction anyway. What will matter will be the final destination of the dead--hell for the infidels, and heaven for the believers. For people with this mindset, MAD [mutual assured destruction] is not a constraint; it is an inducement."
