Hezbollah MP Walid Sakariya Didn't Get the Waltz-Mearsheimer Memo

MEMRI has provided a useful clip from al Manar TV (Aug. 7, 2012) in which Hezbollah MP (and former military commander) Walid Sakariya tells the host that "The nuclear weapon is meant to create a balance of terror with Israel, to finish off the Zionist enterprise..."

He also expressed the hope that Iran would share its nuclear weapons with Syria... and who knows, maybe Hezbollah too.

Apparently, MP Sakariya does not subscribe to the hypothesis of former Columbia University professor Kenneth Waltz that Iranian nuclear weapons should be welcomed because they will bring stability to the region.

Unlike PBS News hour host Judy Woodruff, MP Sakariya is not impressed with University of Chicago professor John Mearsheimer's assertion that nuclear weapons are "weapons of peace" lacking any offensive capability.
