"Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran. Obama-McCain 2012"

So what would you have Obama do?

Remember, things are not always what they seem. NK is not going to attack the US with a nuke. I doubt if they would even attack South Korea. What NK can and maybe will do with their nuke is to threaten or attack Japan. Japan responds by testing a nuke of their own... they already have all of the parts. All of those S.E. Asian countries that Japan occupied during WWII either respond by getting nukes of their own (the Philippines in particular) or expand their existing arsenal (China).

Likewise, doubtful if Iran would attack Israel. If they use a nuke against anyone it would be the Saudis. So the response to an Iran nuke would be a Saudi nuke, then a Kuwaitii nuke (keeping up with the Jones-es not that Saudi would attack Kuwait, then the UAE, and then something of a Mideast arms race.

As with India and Pakistan, nations may have ideological or religious differences across the globe but the nations that that they really hate are usually the ones they have history with, commonly their immediate neighbors.
