The topic title is taken from that of a book
I read a long time ago.

Scenario:

We are Israel and are about to be overwhelmed
by an attack that this time we can not successfully
defend ourselves against.  The prospect is either
that we and all those we love will be killed if not
murdered in a second and complete Holocaust
or what few survivors will subsist in abject slavery;
all this while the “civilized” world wrings their
hands and watches.   Yet, by virtue of nuclear
devices placed in all the major cities of the world,
we have the ability to ensure that if we die everyone
else in the world dies with us.  What argument
do you offer against it when the time comes
us pushing that button?
