Letter: Israel wins nuclear game; Iran loses

Regarding taking the so-called WMD from Syria and Iran, I smell a rat. Some guy with an Israeli accent speaking to the BBC last August said someone whispered in the ear of John Kerry: Let's get the Syrians to just give up their poison gas and the U.S. won't wipe them off the planet. Both Russia and Syria bought it. So now we have Syria giving up it's WMD, but Israel keeps its A-bombs and poison gas.

It appears now that Iran will make enough concessions about its nuclear program so it can't make bombs, but Israel keeps its nukes.

Israel has between 75 and 400 nuclear warheads, and we Americans gave them the first shipment of material to make them with, smuggled out of our country in nine lead-lined diplomatic pouches back in 1955.

So why doesn't anyone demand Israel sign the nuclear nonproliferation treaty and be made to give up its arsenal? Maybe it's because the Israelis are the greatest manipulators in the history of the world. And Netanyahu is the king of manipulators; he has Obama and the world eating out of the palm of his hand.
