The Failure of MADness

Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD) is a doctrine of military strategy and national security policy which is based on the theory of deterrence through to simple expedient that a full-scale use of high-yield weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) by opposing sides would result in the complete annihilation of both the attacker(s) and the defender(s).

Somewhat scarily, it might be the foundation for why America and USSR never “cooked off.”

MAD  only works when the other side doesn't want to die
MAD Fails In The Face Of Madness

Unfortunately, MAD will fail in the face of madness, especially the madness of Muslims and their propensity for both Jihad and Martyrdom. This is what makes the current probability of a nuclear Iran so dangerous.

In 1957 Golda Meir said, “Peace will come when the Arabs will love their children more than they hate us.” Yet, as wise as she might have been, this was a statement based in ignorance. Under Islam the killing of one’s children in the name of Allah is the highest form of love that was passes for a Muslim parent can show for it because they believe that it guarantees their children’s souls eternal paradise.
