Learn to love the bomb

Boris Johnson waxes sceptical in the Telegraph. There's a lot more in the article than this paragraph, but it makes a point that I've been sporadically making:

If mere possession of weapons of mass destruction were sufficient grounds for an attack, then we would be mustering for action against China (250 nukes), India (10) and several others including Israel (thought to have about 200 warheads).

Weapons of mass destruction don't matter a jot as long as there's no chance of them being aimed at us. And (with the exception of our Cypriot bases) that applies to Iraq.
