A bit of a click bait title. They said they would hit Israel's nuclear facilities if Israel attacks Iran's.

Yeah I wouldn't even call that clickbait. That is straight up fucking bullshit. They knew what they were doing with that title.

"make it possible to review our nuclear doctrine and deviate from our previous considerations"

Context being their purported self-limitation on developing nuclear weapons. Not stated directly given context but implied.

A bit? As far as we know they don’t even have nuclear weapons. This is major click bait.

I wasn't betting on 2024 being the year everyone died, but it looks like we're heading that way...

Well, it's been a blast. Pun intended.

my wild guess about "everyone (60% and +) to die" :
0% chances from Iran & middle east wars
10% chances from russ & NATO wars
50% chances from climate change
... say, in the next 30 years.

Also, 90% chances i am missing something important here.

Irish unification, Bell riots, and then the nuclear war

And then the post-scarcity utopia!

Can we just skip to that? Pretty please??

If I were the Iranian leadership I'd want to develop a nuclear arsenal yesterday. It's the only way to really deter Israeli or American aggression. As an American myself I'd appreciate the resulting reduction in the likelihood of our going to war against Iran.

Then Iran starts pulling the bullshit russia is doing.
