    They only place where we can stop it is to stop the first one.
    So either we act or don't and face the consequences. Jamesrage seems to think that because we have them we give up the right to say anything about anyone else having them, therefore, we should give them out like candy to everyone and hasten our extinction. Love that logic.

    The U.S. isn't the only country with with grave concerns. Iran makes a lot of threats.

    we keep our alliance with Israel, and SA handles its own problems.

    right now, SA abdicates its responsibility, we are its pro bono military, and it makes out like a bandit every time we act.

    and the kicker? you're paying for it.

    SA has no army to speak of. They do have some credible defense capabilities though...

    At this point it's the United States that has to be stopped. We have become too subservient to the zionists of Israel and the Jewish lobby. Iran may have a nutty theocratic government, but they haven't attacked anybody, unlike the imperial U.S.

    No more wars. No more "interventions". Just say no to the military-industrial complex. We've had enough and they are bankrupting us.

    Oh I'm with you. But it bugs me when people say parochial things like "You have A, so you can't tell someone else they can't have A".

    perhaps they should devote some oil revenue to building one.

    Re: How important is it to stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons?

    I voted who cares because.....who does? A) They would not be so self defeating as to launch them at us. B) Israel would destroy them before they accomplished anything with them. They've shown in history they will preemptively strike someone who is acquiring nuclear weapons near them (Iraq) C) How can we take the stance of others can't have them if we have them? We have been more volatile than any country in the world in regards to our aggressiveness towards other countries.

    Threats, yes. That's all they are.
