However, do you think sanctions will prevent Iran from attaining nuclear capabilities?
Will sanctions prevent Iran from continuing to be one of the biggest state sponsors of terrorism in the world?
What do you think should happen if Iran gets the "bomb?"

Iran has only two objectives and everything they've done is directed toward those objectives.
1. Be the biggest dog in the Middle East yard.
2. Destroy Israel.
The world has only two choices:
1. Allow them to achieve their objectives.
2. Prevent them from achieving their objectives.
I believe prevention will ultimately come down to waging war with the country, destroying their nuclear program and removing their government from power.
Iran has made their choices...the world must make theirs.

I don't really care THAT much whether Iran has nukes or not...though I would rather they did not if pressed. But it's no big deal to me.
They will never use them, because if they did either or both Israel/America would obliterate Iran within an hour in retaliation. So why would Iran ever use them (the question is rhetorical)?
Besides, if Israel has them (which despite their silence, they obviously do), I cannot fault Iran for wanting them.

I do not understand why America's right is so focused on Iran. Pakistan is a country which has nuclear weapons and is far less stable than Iran. Is it the relative closeness of Iran to Israel? Is it the result of right-wing Israeli propaganda?
Things may change in a couple weeks if Netanyahu and the Likud lose the upcoming elections. Presently, Likud and the Zionist Union parties are basically tied in polling

Mornin DA. Don't forget the Saud doesn't want Iran with a Nuke.....and said if they get one. The Saud will follow. Which we already know they have a deal with the Pakistani.
Also, then Egypt will certainly get theirs.
Question is.....is a Nuclear Armed ME better or worse for all others.
