Any country which attacks another with nuclear weapons, will enjoy a grace period of 30 minutes before it is wiped off the map, former chairman of the NATO Military Committee said at the Herzliya Conference Tuesday evening. The history of the Cold War teaches us that the only deterrence against nuclear weapons is nuclear weapons, he said.

Naumann was referring to the possibility that Israel might one day come under nuclear attack. He said Iran’s nuclear program has all the characteristics of a military program. A country that spends 10 billion dollars just to enrich uranium to military grade is not a country with a peaceful program, Naumann said.

He said public opinion in the West must be prepared for the eventuality that Iran will pass the nuclear threshold and NATO will need to use its deterrence.
