    A direct threat to only the United States is not 100% of the concern. It's our allies as well. Remember, there's a treaty :-)

    Odom also said:

    By any measure the US has long used terrorism. In ‘78-79 the Senate was trying to pass a law against international terrorism – in every version they produced, the lawyers said the US would be in violation.

    The Washington Post reported in 2010:

    The United States has long been an exporter of terrorism, according to a secret CIA analysis released Wednesday by the Web site WikiLeaks.

    The head and special agent in charge of the FBI’s Los Angeles office said that most terror attacks are committed by our CIA and FBI.
    A handful of American past public figures claiming that the US is sponsoring terrorism does not make it a reality, nor does it have much to do with the fact that the Iranian government is actively doing so, by a matter of fact, and that it is the largest sponsor of terrorism at the present. So do understand if many in the Western world do not prefer to hand over nukes to such a regime, unlike you apparently.

    The right-wing has lost all credibility when it come to both designating targets for military action, and for identifying direct threats to the homeland. Come back in a century or so, after the damage done by your last military escapade has dissipated.

    Maybe Iran wouldn't want a nuke if neocon dumbf**ks didn't openly talk about raining holy hell on them every single day.

    Nuclear weapons have not kept the US out of war, in fact we're in it as we speak, so I really don't understand your snarky comment, especially having seen me post continually about my disdain for war.
    You want to see military budgets climb and arm races among, go ahead and get rid of the nukes. You think we spend a lot to maintain technical superiority now, just wait. And a lot more countries would find conventional war convenient without any deterents at all.

    Read before you post, you'll make better sense. I have multiple posts in this thread stating that it would be my preference that the US had never created the aweful weapon (nuclear bomb) to begin with and that I would prefer that there were no nukes in the world!!!!! And for that have been accused of loving war by another poster. Prove to me that Iran is the largest sponsor of terrorism in the world. Lots of countries use terrorism to advance their interests unfortunately, and as I pointed out to you, there are those of our own government that have acknowledged the US's use of the tactic. You're one of those that has justified the use of nuclear weapons on two civilian cities incinerating 200,000 civilians of all conceivable age, gender and station in life. And you wring your gawd damn hands over something that Iran may do!
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    It is not possible to stop Iran from ever getting nuclear technology. How do you think that such a thing could be done?

    If you're arguing that MAD works, then what harm in Iran having nuclear weapons, if, IF that is their goal?

    I understand, to their left the Israelis have nukes and to their right the Pakistani have them. Funny you say we don't need anymore nukes while suggesting I must love war for saying the same thing. Stop shaking like a leaf, look in the direction that truly threatens your security.

    You want them to have nukes out of fairness, and I don't give a **** about what's fair.
