The probable consequences of a regional nuclear war or even a chemical/biological war in the Middle East could be calamitous for the victor as well as the vanquished. In such exceptional conditions of belligerency, which would impact the United States in very tangible ways, notions of “victory” and “defeat” would lose all usual meanings. While a real risk of regional nuclear war exists independently of any Palestinian state, this risk would be much greater if the “Road Map” is followed to its promised destination.
