Funny thing is, I had to go to CNN to see this story. Nothing about it on Fox. Hmmmm...............

Of course, the Trump administration is still (rightfully) blasting Iran for its support of terrorist organizations such as Hamas and Hezbollah, missile programs, etc. But at least those crazy Persians don't have nukes, meaning the Middle East is almost completely free of nukes -- for now.

There's at least one country in the region that is widely believed to have nuclear weapons and has had a nuclear weapons program for decades.

POTUS doesn't think Israel is in the Middle East, so why should J.D.?

I was indirectly referring to the estimated 60-100 nuclear warheads currently being held in the stockpiles of the Israel Defense Force. Subtlety is a difficult thing, I guess.

And Israel is definitely in the Levant area. Kind of hard to miss on maps, you know.

Jesus, you people really need to have things spelled out for you like kindergarteners.

You guys missed this thread, so here.

https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1812264/2-years-iran-nuclea...

You can read all about how I trashed the nuke deal and couldn't find Oklahoma on a map if you pasted it to my face.

Crap, I wish we had roll-eyes emoticons....

Not being a representative of the state, you probably don't have to worry about all their legal equivocating, especially over something that's pretty widely accepted.

Are you certain he's not a representative of the state? Perhaps a "sleeper" assassin waiting for his next assignment, perhaps in the States?

Just saying I've never seen any myself. Since as a physicist I might want a job at a facility where they could theoretically exist, I'm not saying any more.

I'd make a joke about assassins with bad eyesight but they don't seem to have stopped the stereotypes of albinos.

You don't need good vision to stab someone with a poison-tipped umbrella.

It was a parasol and I was holding it for my wife. Will I never live this down? Oh, wait…
