    It is about what the "Results" are likely to be, and they're not likely to be good for anyone, including Iranians.
    A good point. As others have inavertently pointed out, the Iranian leadership would likely use nukes in the same fashion as North Korea, warding off unwanted foreign influence and essentially insulating their power even further.

    But that's a wholly unrealistic goal. So long as someone knows how to make nukes, someone will make nukes.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Well then brace yourself for everybody to have them. Who knows, maybe then my goal of war being obsolete will bud.

    Is my sarcasm escaping you? I agree with you RiO, and I'm glad you can be a critic of both parties, you'll stand out. Most people are partisans and as such contribute nothing towards improvement. They ensure the status quo.

    Just because Iran has a right to Nuclear weapons doesn't mean they should actually have them.

    And some are simply mindless critics of the US.

    Then everyone has them. Nobody is going to use them for anything but saber rattling, just like now and if they do... they'll become an ex-nation and a glass desert.
