Good post. The key to our standoff with the Soviets was Mutual Assured Destructiuon (MAD). While that wouldn't work against al Quaeda in the unlikely event that they got a bomb, it would most assuredly work against a state like Iran. If we reminded them of this once in awhile instead of talking about preemptive attack, I bet it would have the same deterrent effect, and give us back the moral high ground.
