US army: Israel has 200 to 400 nuclear warheads…

Good news people! The US army has confirmed that Israel has their very own circumcised version of Dr Manhattan’s schlong. Sources estimate a collection of 200 to 400 nuclear warheads.

After years of ignoring the Israeli nuclear program—which was denounced in 1986 by former nuclear technician Mordechai Vanunu—the United States’ Department of Defense has acknowledged Israel nuclear power status for the first time.

Israel has neither confirmed nor denied the existence of its own nuclear arsenal, but page 37 of the US Joint Forces Command report recognizes the fact, putting it in the same group as Pakistan, India, China, North Korea, Russia, along with an “emerging Iran,” Taiwan, and Japan having “the capability to develop nuclear weapons quickly.”

According to “The Samson Option” report—an investigative article written by reporter Seymour Hersh—Israel may have 200 to 400 atomic warheads, ready to use as the last resort in case of a massive attack that may put in danger the existence of the country.

This is a big deal for two reasons: First, because the subject has been dodged forever by the US government, including President Barack Obama, who recently ignored the question when asked by White House correspondent Helen Thomas. And second, because to the Symington Amendment—which bans support to countries developing nuclear weapons—this may mean the end of US help to Israel.

Or maybe this just means that someone at the DOD will get fired and the report corrected with a big black marker.

It can go either way, and it will still be very bad news.

  1. Incredible.

    They have the bomb, he has the bomb, he wants the bomb… He should stop wanting the bomb… He already tested the bomb. He wants to test the bomb…

    Who else has the bomb? What on earth do they need the bomb for? Does the bomb have any justifiable reason for existence if all it can create is destruction and submission? So many questions!
