Should sane countries have nukes ?

Heck, it doesn't bother me. Especially when the insane dictatorships are pursuing nukes.

This Washington Post op-ed makes a very sensible point:

"The Israeli bomb threatens nobody. An Iranian bomb does. India has transferred its nuclear technology to no one. Pakistan has. No one worries about India or Israel making the technology available to terrorists. Everyone worries about Iran doing that. These are distinctions with great differences. They are, as critics charge, double standards, but to apply a single standard to both friend and enemy, while it might be fair, would be singularly stupid"
