Germany okays deal to sell nuke-capable submarines to Israel

Germany’s national security council approved the sale of three more nuclear-capable submarines to Israel for a combined price of some $1.3 billion, in a deal marred by controversy surrounding corruption allegations against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu...

...Submarines, unmatched in their ability to hide from enemy navies, have long been a major facet of Israel’s defense policy.

Israeli subs are reportedly armed with cruise missiles topped with nuclear warheads, affording the tiny Jewish state “second strike” capabilities — although the government will not acknowledge the existence of these nuclear weapons, as part of its long-standing policy of “nuclear ambiguity.”..

HMMM - I thought we are soooo worried about little nations obtaining nuclear weapons (Korea, Iran, etc.) that we are willing to go to war to stop them from getting them?  Did we not kill over a million people in Iraq because Saddam was supposed to have had WMD's (not even nukes)?
Also - do not be deceived - Israel will not pay for these subs - Germany will give them to Israel at a fraction of the actual cost -  as they have done in the past:
