A single prominent factor in Iran's nuclear weapons development - a hot topic for those who want to curtail that nation's supposed capability - is its transport vehicle. A guided-missile system, high-performance strike bombers, an extensive logistic and surveillance network and - above all - a defense against retaliatory strikes are all in this broad mix (”Israel's moment of decision,” Opinion, March 31).

All the warmongering - by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, former Prime Minister Ehud Barak and others - instills more hatred and suspicion in a country that dares to venture beyond “nuclear apartheid.” It's little wonder that Iran seeks to defend itself against hostile nations. Again, where is Iran's strike-transport machinery and technology? We haven't even heard of its existence. So let's talk instead of breathing fire.
