Begin's claims were contradicted by a number of experts, but there was considerable circumstantial evidence that Iraq indeed hoped eventually to develop a nuclear weapon. However, Israel's critics pointed out that Iraq was a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, which allowed international inspections of the nuclear facility, while Israel itself refused to sign the treaty, refused inspections of its nuclear facility, and was widely believed to have a large nuclear arsenal.
OK, 26 years ago, Israel bombed the Nuclear Reactor near Baghdad, destroying Iraqs chances of of getting a nuclear bomb, not 25 to 30 years ago.
Now. another 9/11 type event will happen without any doubt if the US leaders continue to do nothing about USA Border & Ports Security to protect the American public.
And if you think a border is impermiable to Long range ballistic missiles just because a bunch of guys are riding it in pickup trucks and a few walls and cameras are installed , then you better look long and hard at the Dems history of cutting defense spending ...
Just admit it dude , after we pull out of Iraq and tuck tail and run in a premature manner , we will be inviting something worse than a 9-11 to visit our shores .....Just Look at your sleeping kids , and think about it awhile !
ask yourself the question :
How do we really win the peace ?
