    No more than they should bomb us because we already have them.

    We should try bribery first. Its not like we don't owe them an apology for our past shenanigans. Maybe if we let them be part of the world, they would lose their nuclear ambitions.

    We can out-bomb them later but certainly try other strategies first.

    Why should we bomb someone because they could get nuclear weapons? Did we bomb India, China, Russia, Israel, the UK, France, North Korea, or Pakistan when they did get them?

    Haven't their actions over the last 30 years proved that our past "shenanigans" were a justifiable policy intended to prevent such a barbaric people from being turned loose on the world?
    Going back 2600 years, that country has cast a cruel shadow over its neighbors. Did the 300 die for nothing?

    Moral equivalency isn't at work here... Iran's leadership is, by western standards, not rational.

    Even if it did, when it is US or THEM I vote in favor of "us"....

    Which country, between the "us and them" has actually used a nuclear/atomic weapon against another country? \
    Which country, in the last decade has invaded another country? Or two?

    Why haven't we invaded/bombed North Korea?

    So if the economy was much better you'd be in favor of an attack/invasion against Iran?
