These are all good points. I was thinking about the nuclear threat potential.

Any sort of nuclear option is basically off the table, MAD made sure of that. Regardless of whether or not Iran has nukes, any usage of nuclear weapons by any nation is simply too risky.

It's not gonna happen.

Don't underestimate fanatics. The Middle East is a different animal, IMO.

Tactical nukes isn't necessarily MAD. Just a real mess.

you are way behind on the technological advances and their effects of strategic nuclear thinking.  There is a very influential bunch of hawks that have been undermining MAD for twenty years now and fully believe a nuclear war is winnable.  And 'we', the United  States  are where they live  and purvey their insanity.

the high level generals in the Russian military do not believe in MAD.   They have a robust civil defense program and they do believe they can come out ok in a total nuclear war. I would not put faith in MAD any longer.    Iran has made it known that they would sacrifice their entire population to bring on the end times that they believe in, and we could not really wipe out everyone in China.
