    How many innocents did the Nazis kill? Letting Iran have nukes is the equivalent of letting the Nazis have nukes.

Besides, since the U.S. is a bunch of wusses, only attacking those who can't possibly defend themselves, I figure Iran might as well have nukes, if for no other reason, than to protect themselves against us. After all, if they can actually give us a bloody nose, we'll have no stomach for war except in the extreme circumstances it ought to actually attack to invade another sovereign nation.

    Because we prefer Israel does not get nuked.
    Says who? I have no problem whatsoever with them getting nuked, I'd love to see Jerusalem turned into a glass desert, just to piss off three major religious groups.

    No wait, not nuked, then you'll just have three giant groups of delusional idiots looking to take revenge. How about a nice big meteor coming down on the Dome of the Rock? That would be nice.

    Well, nK turned into a black hole and Pakistan housed OBL.
    And we refused to attack Pakistan because they had nukes. Go figure. What, trying to keep Iran a viable military target?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    For good reasons IMO.

    Why does it matter? The lesser of two evils is still evil. And no, before you jump on your keyboard, I'm not saying the United States is bad, the bombings were.

    There isn't. We knew the cost of the bombings yet we still carried on with them.
