Israel planning to use nukes on Iran?


Ok, tactical nukes, which apparently have one-fifteenth the strength of the bombs at Hiroshima, and they’d be going deep underground and penetrating a bunker, not wiping out a civilian population. But JESUS H. CHRIST, NUKES?

What kind of world are we living in where this is even an option? If Iran is close to getting nuclear weapons, then clearly it is a threat to Israel. But….you better be absolutely sure of that before you start throwing nuclear weapons around, tactical or not. Setting the precedent of using a nuclear weapon is a slippery slope that’ll make global warming look like a tea party.
