    And that is why you cannot do it that way.

    So you think it is possible to destroy every person in Iran and every inch of that area with nuclear weapons? What do you think that would do to the rest of the world?

    You are repeating yourself. That's a zero response.

    Yep, that's just common sense.

    That is a good point about no one knowing the extent of Israel's program.
    Israel did not sign the NPT- Israel is not considered by Europe to be a threat.

    After bombing the rubble, very intrusive and without end inspections would be needed.

    You totally misunderstood. You are right to think that Iran could be obliterated. But that is not at all as dangerous as the situation will be with proliferation.

    They are a state by any particular definition that is commonly applied, if a fragile and hyper-violent one.

    Sure it can. You raise the costs higher than the gains.

    No, it can be done in Iran on a very small scale. It might take a long time, but it can be done. What are you going to do, station guards in every inch of a rather large geographical area to make sure that they don't do it? In what "magical" world is that possible?
    Who says you need guards to figure out that they are building a nuclear reactor? We have satellites. We also have the full wide range of intelligence penetration of high-value targets (such as the Iranian nuclear program).

    This is unlikely to be accurate (for crying out loud how would you hide the testing?), however, bottom line: you have no idea what our collection capability against Iran is or is not.
