And by the way, even if Iran had a missile and a nuclear weapon, why do you think they would fire it at the US? Do you have some secret information that the entire population of Iran has a death wish?

Russia isn't going to destroy itself over a half-assed partner like Iran. They sell weapons to Iran and share a goal in reducing U.S. influence in the ME, but they aren't to risk their entire nation for them. For that matter, the U.S. leaders would have to be idiots to attack Russia regardless of what happens to Israel. Worst case scenario, Iran and Israel nuke each other.Iran wouldn't hit us even if they could. They'd hit isreal and if they retaliated in kind Russia would nuke isreal and we would have to nuke russia. If we did that they would retaliate in kind. So yea, Iran not getting a nuke is very important.
Meh. Let them launch. It would solve all our problems. But the threat will never be about an improbable launch.
