    Actually, I expect the same respect and courtesy I afforded you, a source for your position.

    How do I prove a negative? I've seen no official declaration of military threat to the US. If you claim our Commander in Chief and the UN have declared Iran is a military threat to the US, please provide us your source.

    If you signed the Non-Proliferation Treaty then you are bound by it. And Iran did sign it.

    I understand its a technical violation, when or if it happens. States break treaties all the time. I am speaking from a more philosophical perspective in why its okay for some to have nuclear weapons, and others not.

    Well in this particular case...because the government of Iran is batchit crazy. And no crazies should have weapons period...much less nukes.

    Yup, Iran can do that. North Korea already did it. Of course, that would be like admitting Iran planned to develop nuclear weapons, after swearing up and down they weren't going to.

    I cited the Iranian Ambassador declaring such. You have offered your opinion, which alone is perhaps stronger than an impression, but, no more than that. You asked for a source I provided you with mine. I ask you for a source you give me bupkus.

    I don't follow your reasoning. The US has attacked more nations in modern history than Iran. We have have even used nukes on civilian populations. No other nuclear state has done that.
