Israel's strategic ambiguity around nuclear weapons under pressure. Apparently it negotiated to sell nuclear armed missiles to South Africa in 1975, though the Israeli president (his signature is on the documents in his then capacity as Defence Minister) denies the interpretation.
  • Even if these nukes were, to put a good face on it, nothing but hollowed out shells... I'm reaching here... even then... *mind boggles*
  • It is positively amazing that more than sixty years have gone by without a nuclear weapon being detonated as a weapon. I grew up terrified of nuclear war. I don't really see that as too much of a possibility anymore. However, it is entirely possible that one will get used by some country or organization. I just can't believe it has been over sixty years.
