#3 Shia or Sunni, Salafi or Other, the so-called "CALIPHATE" needs Nuclear Weapons just for [rough] parity wid the Non-Islamic World - the Maha-Rushian Questionne' de Jour for US Govtcritters + USDOD-Intel is HOW LONG CAN RADICAL ISLAM, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO SHIA RISING IRAN, FOREGO ANY PREMISE OF A NON-NUCLEAR CALIPHATE???
Because to do so strongly infers that Hardline or Conservative,Ultra-Conservative Shariaists + Islamists are willing to share Govt-Public Power wid Non-Muslims in "Fair, Equal, + Reasonable Terms" in any newly established Islamist Regimes or conquered territories.
Are they, or aren't they???

#4 Are they, or aren't they???
That would be a negatory, good buddy. What kind of Caliphate would be willing to share *anything* with the infidels.
The problem with "I'm not bluffing" is that Big O has never actually articulated actions or consequences, just vague statements of disapproval. Rather ironic that taking American power off the table has made the world more unstable.
And regardless of how one feels about the destruction of Israel, Iran With Nukes means two additional things: a nuclear arms race in the ME and nukes in the hands of jihadis; neither particularly desirable outcomes.
