    I don't know that Obama has ever said or suggested that Iran has a right to nuclear weapons. That would be Ron Paul actually who said that. Obama just BEHAVES in a way that practically ensures Iran will get nuclear weapons if that is in fact what their goal is.

    And this is one of those issues that doesn't fit into any kind of 'equality' or 'fair play' mold. We are dealing with a nation controlled by religious fanatics and who for some time have been the No. 1 exporter and supporter of terrorism in the world. To say that Iran has as much right as any other nation to nuclear weapons is like saying that a rabid dog has a right to run free in the neighborhood if there is no leash law for other dogs or that a rattlesnake has as much right to be in my living room as does the Shih Tzu or calico cat.

    Considering my Country has been in a mini war with Iran since the hostage crisis, I say **** no!

    When you all were worrying the Benghazi attack story, my country was on alert; we had, for only the second time in history, sever all diplomatic relations with Tehran for the safety of our diplomatic staff. There has been a death warrant out against Ken Taylor since he aided Americans in escaping.

    If you look at the history of Iran after the fall of the Persian empire till the institution of the Shah with America's backing, you will see these are not a people who soon forget. And while Obama seems to be selling this message that they're just like Americans or whatever, belies the fact they routinely torture they're own citizens, disappear them etc. in far greater horror than Cuba, and yet he trusts them enough to negotiate with them.

    Canada has few enemies, probably just Iran and ISIS now, but one having nuclear capabilities is too many.

    Hardly all Bush's war.
    The other regime scared Americans with things like, "do we have to wait for the smoking gun in the form of a mushroom cloud over a US city". Something that Saddam Hussein was incapable of pulling off.

    Re: Does Iran have a "Right" to Nuclear Weapons?

    The USofA's fearmongering machine of doom has done a bang-up job of demonizing Iran and making them the great boogieman of the world.

    Is it hard to understand why they'd want the best weapons they could develop?

    Also - please tell us, when was the last time Iran declared war on another country?

    Iran would regain that "right" by withdrawing. (but would be admitting the obvious)

    Conditions of the NPT are No weapons, but assistance with, but Supervised, Civilian Power acquisition.
    Such as the EU offering to settle the whole issue 8 YEARS ago by giving Iran Free Off-site Enrichment, to guarantee Iran would Not Divert materials to a weapons program.
    Iran refused.
    This really is as Obvious as the OJ Trial.

    It is SO tiring to EVERY Day hear the Numb-Nuts: "If they have them..."
    And I do mean EVERY Day.

    It's really a poll on Ignorance of issue.
    And of course, despite reading my post, many will vote the opposite position withOut being able to challenge mine.

Israel has nukes for EXACTLY the same fears. North Korea has nukes for EXACTLY the same fears. So coming here and saying "no" just because we dont like their political leaders is just bull**** from top to bottom as we have allowed other countries access to nukes without any consequences. India and Pakistan, both countries who have been at war more times in the last 200 years than Iran has.... both conducted secret tests, refuse to sign up to NFT and what did the US and the west do? Slap them over the fingers.. pathetic attitude, just because they happened to be allies.
    So you have No REAL answer to Iran having Signed AWAY that 'Right'. (Reaffirmed under the Revolutionary Govt)
    Just your usual Empty Hostility/Deflection after getting Gutted again.

    You bet some are [just not in a good way] but, the scripture describes the One [New] World Order.

    They have supported proxy wars for decades.
