    They likely do and so do people from all over. In underground tunnels and whatnot.

    I heard that the current Iranian leadership stated publicly that the state of Israel does not have a right to exist. Once the Iranians get nuclear weapon technology, it is feared that they will launch against Israel. We should engage Iran if Israel decides to attack Iran. However, I do not think it would be wise for The United States to engage first. This is our ally's problem, so they should be the ones to make the initial engagement.

    Some maybe, but not EagleAye I think. From my experience he is a pretty level headed guy.

It wouldn't surprise me if Iran has no deeply felt disagreement with Israel. Jews are once again a mere pawn in someone's play for power.

    I will agree to disagree. If the Israel were to agree to disarm their nuclear stockpile and withdraw to the boundaries of growth that the previously agreed to, and we agreed to remove our military forces from the Middle East, Iran no longer has an incentive to build an equivalent nuclear force.

    If I were in their position surrounded by Israel and 45 US bases and subs all with nuclear capability, I would be trying my best to create a nuclear capacity for defense.

    The Sydney Morning Herald is reporting today, February 23, 2012, that:

    "The deputy head of Iran's armed forces, Mohammed Hejazi, said: ''We are no longer willing to wait for enemy action to be launched against us. Our strategy now is that if we feel our enemies want to endanger Iran's national interests, and want to decide to do that, we will act without waiting for their actions We enjoy the ability to show them all types of confrontation in case of a foolish act by the Zionist regime.''


    and that:

    "The apparent threat came as international nuclear inspectors declared their latest mission to Iran a failure after Tehran blocked access to a military site south-east of the capital. The International Atomic Energy Agency team had been locked in two days of discussions on the possible military dimensions of the country's nuclear program, and had unsuccessfully requested access to the site at Parchin."

    They are our only ally in the region.
    What about Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt, and now Iraq, they're not allies?

    Maybe Obama should start wheeling and dealing and selling them arms like Reagan did.

    Well let's see, they've got Iraq on one border ... a country that was recently invaded by the U.S. They've got Afghanistan on another border ... a country that was recently invaded by the U.S. They've got Pakistan on another border ... an unstable country with a stable of nukes. And they've got Israel close by, which probably has a 100 nukes pointed at them. I can't imagine why they would want to have nukes.

    You talking about the Iranian Regime? That they don't want nukes? Is that what you talking about?
