In 1981 when Israel bombed Baghdad's nuclear reactor in a bold air strike, the world was outraged.
Yet is there any doubt that if his reactor had been contructed as planned that when Saddam's Scuds were dropping in the suburbs of Tel Aviv in the 1991 Gulf War that some of them would have been armed with nuclear warheads?
How happy were the residents of Tel Aviv in 1991 that action had been taken in 1981 to halt Iraq's nucler programme? And how happy might the residents of the Middle East be in years to come if action is taken to halt Iran's atomic programme now?
