NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
In our world today, we have, we believe, 10 nations having nuclear weapons created at various times: the United States (1945), Russia (1949), the United Kingdom (1952), France (1960), China (1964), India (1974), Pakistan (1998), North Korea (2006), Israel (?) and South Africa (?).
None of them have used said weapons against any of the others. Certainly there have been disputes between some, some of which resulted in open combat, but no nuclear warfare.
Iran would like to join the nuclear world, but there is extreme opposition. Its opponents are mainly Israel, the United States and the United Kingdom. I can understand Israel, but the other two countries confuse me.
What motivates their opposition? Neither can reasonably fear a war with Iran. Let us go a little further. If Iran gets close to success, Israel will surely attack it. That could possibly result in relatiation against Israel by other Islamic nations and that would call into the fray the U.S. Maybe that is the motivation for the anti-Iran opposition.
Please Lord, forgive us. We currently are facing a debt structure that has a potential longevity of 10 to 20 years. Assuming we experience a period of relative economic prosperity, bring on a war and it’s disastrous.
In our present situation, unfortunately we cannot utter three, five or 10 Hail Marys for our sins of the past.
The penance for those remissions requires the expenditure of coin of the realm, which we don’t have at this time. Adding more by way of a war would be calamitous. And so, Iran, even though I believe that it should be entitled as a free nation to develop its own nuclear program, I must say as to nuclear weapons, emphatically, no.
