    No, its America and Israel.....

    Wow.

    You people will never be taken seriously if you continue to offer up nonsensical anti-American rhetoric like that

    2. I don't know why you're babbling about Communist potholes like Cuba and North Korea.

    3. America and Israel have a long history of aggression, and America has a history of supporting terrorist groups (e.g. KSC, FSA). America is the only country to have ever used nuclear weapons in war, and Israel the only country presently known to possess an undeclared nuclear arsenal.

    4. Iran lasted started a war in 1826.

    5. There's still no evidence that Iran is trying to make a nuclear bomb. Paranoia is not evidence.

    6. The supreme religious authority and head of state of Iran has officially declared production of nuclear weapons to be against their religion.

    7. Even if Iran were trying to make a nuclear bomb, while bad, it would most likely be intended as a deterrent against American or Israeli attack.
    Using the A-Bombs we dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki is a ridiculous example of our supposed " aggression ".

    Plus, the bombing of Dresden, Tokyo, Berlin and Hamburg killed more civilians and did far more damage than the two Nukes we dropped on Japan.

    It was also a War that we, the " aggressors " didn't start.

    And Im sure the Mullas in Iran are trustworthy people when it comes to exposing their State Secrets......

    If they say Nuclear weapons are against their religion, hey I'm sure their telling the truth....

    Although its a bit of a arbitrary line drawn by the largest State sponsor of terror in the World.

    And Pakistan doesn't seem to have a problem with Nukes violating their Islamic beliefs.

    Hey, maybe those Imams are lying ? Did you ever think of that ?

    I didn't claim that they were. I claimed that they show our lack of moral authority in respect of nuclear weapons.

    Plus, the bombing of Dresden, Tokyo, Berlin and Hamburg killed more civilians and did far more damage than the two Nukes we dropped on Japan.
    The point being what? That we don't restrict our immoral activity to nuclear bombing?

    It was also a War that we, the " aggressors " didn't start.
    You forgot to point out that the sky is blue.

    And Im sure the Mullas in Iran are trustworthy people when it comes to exposing their State Secrets......
    The teachings of Shia Islam are not state secrets.

    If they say Nuclear weapons are against their religion, hey I'm sure their telling the truth....
    No reason to disbelieve them. Not everyone has feels the need to plan for the annihilation of the human race that we do.

    Although its a bit of a arbitrary line drawn by the largest State sponsor of terror in the World.
    Iran: Hezbollah

    America: FSA
    KSC
    Planned Parenthood

    Need I continue?

    And Pakistan doesn't seem to have a problem with Nukes violating their Islamic beliefs.
    And the sky seems to be blue.

    Hey, maybe those Imams are lying ? Did you ever think of that ?
    Maybe they are. And maybe all the media outlets telling us there is such a place as "Iran" are lying too. Maybe it's all a conspiracy.

    No. The nuclear genie is out of the bottle and it's not going back in. MAD is the only way to stave off the threat of an actual attack by non-rogue powers. Now, that's not to say we need 5000 nukes (the current estimate of our arsenal). Just a hundred is absolutely more than sufficient to keep others from getting funny ideas.

    Absolutely. A non-nuclear world is a world in which US, and western, military power reigns supreme and in which their will can be made manifest.

    Yup, the world can never go back to zero nuclear weapons...it's just too late.

    Yet a non-nuclear world is impossible.
