Who gave Israel and Pakistan The Bomb? "The Rosenbergs did it!"

How the freak did the Soviet Union develop an atomic bomb so suddenly after America invented it back in 1945? Surely scientists in the USSR couldn't have thought it up all by themselves. They must have had help from traitors and spies.

"The Rosenbergs did it!"

And in 1953, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were executed for alleged treason and for allegedly giving away state secrets because a nuclear bomb is so totally complex that the Soviets couldn't have possibly dreamed one up by themselves -- yet a New York housewife could.

Then in 1969, when Richard M. Nixon was President, Israel suddenly developed The Bomb. Now how did that happen so fast? It was claimed that Soviet scientists couldn't think that fast and yet Israeli scientists could? And come up with all that uranium too? Amazing.

"The Rosenbergs did it!"

Then in 1987, when Ronald Reagan was President, Pakistan suddenly developed The Bomb too. Now how did that happen so fast?

"The Rosenbergs did it!"

Okay. Let's try to understand this. Allegedly, North Korea and Iraq and Iran have tried for YEARS to develop The Bomb. These three countries all have -- or had -- top scientists, access to stuff that glows in the dark and the will to make nuclear weapons -- yet they all failed.

But tiny little Israel and insignificant Pakistan -- they don't even have any oil -- managed to come up with The Bomb all by themselves? Hmmm....

When the Soviet Union came up with The Bomb, U.S. prosecutors all screamed bloody murder that SOMEONE in the U.S. had to have given them the secret -- and that whoever did it was a traitor who needed to be executed. Am I correct so far? Yeah.

But when Israel and Pakistan come up with The Bomb, no one even bats an eyelash. There were no spies? There were no traitors? Israel and Pakistan just dreamed all this stuff up by themselves?

Or did the Rosenbergs come back from the grave?
