What about Isreals part in this ?
Did you know that Isreal was an hour away from nuking Iraq in the first war ?
After Saddam moved his missles into Jordan.. then Isreal told the US they were gonna protect themselves with nukes. The US then called up Russia in attempt for Them to call Saddam and basically withdraw the missles.
From what I understand It was a very close call to nukes flying.
I think anyone that would really go after Isreal would start a war in great magnitude.
