So again you make it sound as if Israel is not to be trusted as with others .Firstly you're confusing a democratic sovereign state (Israel) with a nutbar theocracy.
Secondly, Israel's response in 1973, nuclear or otherwise would have been just that, a response, and perfectly legal under international law.
Nixon wasn't worried about retaliation against Israel, Nixon was worried about the economic shock of a nuclear war in the ME. Neither Egypt nor Syria would have been capable of response.
Dig it .
Pointing out the double standards applied to the ME does not mean i am ignoring anything , try harder.If Iran and other backwards countries in the region didn't go around spouting how they want to wipe Israel out, they would probably have the same luxuries Israel does. But keep ignoring that handy fact
Other countries in ME spouting trash talk vs Israel actively sabotaging/attacking and ignoring their obligations , which is worse ? (try to take the emotion associated with Irael out of it and look objectively)
