Political Proverbs, Number 1

We were told that terrorism is the poor man's nuclear weapons.
So what does it mean when Iran has both terrorism and nuclear weapons?
--Barry Rubin


  1. Iran would have both. A radical state would have the means to shield its proxies and deter would-be enemies from attacking it. The flip side of the coin in such a scenario is any incentive for it to moderate its outlook would disappear. That's a good argument to keep Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.

  2. A double minded man only has himself as an enemy. Thus divided, he only chances upon the great loss he envisions for others, only arguing right up until his final defeat, he presses forward in total bewilderment and chaos.
