"This nuclear threat business didn't seem to be very useful during the October War (what is called in Israel the Yom Kippur War, October 1973). It didn't stop the Egyptians and the Syrians from successfully engaging Israel, especially as far as Egypt was concerned, since they got a refund on Israel's gains from the Six Day War.
Frankly, the only people to have suffered from Israel's nuclear armaments are those Israelis who either work or live near the place where they are stored and developed, as they are the ones who get cancer, or the ones whose water will become polluted in case Israel's aging reactors start leaking into the soil.
So if you're in favor of more threats to the environment in 3rd-world countries, then go ahead: support the nuclear armament of whoever you like, whether they are the Iranians or whoever. Just don't pretend to be a humanitarian while you're at it."-tree of judas
Well, I think flying atomic bombs around in planes does scare people. It's just not nice. But don't pretend for a moment that poor countries have some environmental obligation to keep that rich countries don't. It's not like they are the ones fucking up the globe. The US alone emits over 25% of the world's greenhouse gas, with just 5% of the world's population.

That whole..."the ecosystem will collapse if we (have to share)let _______ have a modern lifestyle" line coming out of parts of the environmental movement is a sham that only the neo-malthusian Sierra club attempted-coupsters can deliver with OOMPH!. So don't even go there.
