I don't believe that what's good for the goose is good for the gander when it comes to military power. I don't care that Pakistan or Israel already have nuclear weapons, it doesn't mean that it's good for Iran to have them. (Not that I believe they want nuclear weapons. It's just a hypothetical situation.) After the US developed nuclear weapons, if they had been sensible they would have prevented any other country getting them, either by using them to overthrow the Russian government after WW2 and occupying Russia, or by occupying any uranium mines that could provide material for nuclear weapons; in any case they should have made American military superiority certain. I don't believe in shaking hands after a war and going back to how it was before, because what stops the war kicking off again? I think world hegemony by a single power is the only way for world peace. Now that may never happen.
