A civilian nuclear program in Iran is perfectly cool. And no one is complaining about that. A military nuclear program is not acceptable, especially given Iran's penchant for worldwide terrorist support. Iran's belief that Israel is "a cancerous tumor that must be cut, and will be cut," makes Iran's intentions with regard to nuclear arms very ominous and worthy of alarm.
Even so, now is not the time for an attack. Obama has rightly held back, and insisted on the same from Israel. I doubt that he will supply bunker-busters to Israel at this time, but that may change. Obama is right to let Iran be the center of attention and have its 15-minutes of fame, but after that Iran needs to sit down for serious and sincere negotiations. If they continue to use talks as a stalling tactic, as they have in the past, Israel may get those bunker-busters after all.
And eagle, we've played this game already. They've stalled for years, they have no interest in negotiating and the IAEA says they are pursueing a nuclear device in at least some capacity. I say the time to act is now. God speed Israel, you have my support.

Wasn't someone trying to convince us how "peaceful" Iran is?
Well according to Wikipedia the penetration record for Bunker Busters is 15 feet (unbeaten since world war two) which won't be a great deal of good if many of these facilities are beneath mountains.
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
