MAD stood for mutually assured destruction during the Cold War. The theory was that neither superpower would start a nuclear war because each had the power to destroy the other so no one would win. MAD obviously worked because the superpowers were rational enough to “get it.”

All that came to mind as Secretary of State John Kerry returned to the US waving a metaphorical piece of paper declaring peace in our time with Iran. Why Obama and Kerry would find the mullahs in Iran trustworthy is astounding. Why they would find the mullahs in Iran rational is equally astounding.

Our Israeli friends who have everything to lose are not going to wait around to see if a nuclear Iran is trustworthy or rational. They cannot afford to be stupid or naive.
