I'm not addressing their reasons for wanting weapons. That's not what we should care about. Our concern should be the control and security of such weapons. They are not stable enough for that responsibility.
They want a deterrent -- against what, exactly? Would nukes deter the US from forcing open the straights? Of course not.
