What would be the reason for any other country to mess with us if we mind our own business??
Billion.

I'd want a nuclear bomb if I lived in ANY country.
Too many countries have them, and you never know who'd get angry enough to launch one. I'd like to know my country could - more or less - protect itself.

Wow. Did you really just criticize the Obama administration.

On your eastern border, the United States has 100,000 troops serving in Afghanistan. On your western border, the US has been occupying Iraq since 2003 and plans to retain a small force of military contractors and CIA operatives even after its official withdrawal next month. Pakistan, a nuclear-armed nation, is to the south-east; Turkey, America's NATO ally, to the north-west; Turkmenistan, which has acted as a refueling base for US military transport planes since 2002, to the north-east. To the south, across the Persian Gulf, you see a cluster of US client states: Bahrain, home to the US Fifth Fleet; Qatar, host to a forward headquarters of US Central Command; Saudi Arabia, whose king has exhorted America to "attack Iran" and "cut off the head of the snake".

Then, of course, less than a thousand miles to the west, there is Israel, your mortal enemy, in possession of over a hundred nuclear warheads and with a history of pre-emptive aggression against its opponents.

Nope..I'd rather have a chicken in every pot and and two cars in every garage.
