Dear Editor, Does one wonder why smaller countries are scrambling to obtain atomic weapons? Could it be that it is their best insurance against a wholesale invasion, or preempted strike by a more powerful country? We don't know if North Korea has the bomb or not, but just not being sure is enough to cause us to back off. One can pretty well know that if Lebanon had as many atomic weapons as does Israel, there would not be an invasion of Lebanon today. The terrorist acts might continue, but no one in his right mind would risk an atomic attack of their country.
