    Iran is a sovereign country. But other countries are sovereign too and have a legitimate right to defend their interests too. In that context there is no such thing as a "right" to have nuclear weapons.

    We didn't think there would be peace between Pakistan and India before they both got the bomb, either.

    Really, conservatives should be eager for Iran and just about every other nation to get the bomb - it's the same logic they use for guns: if everyone is armed, it will be more peaceful because everyone can shoot back.

    Do not use what you think conservatives believe in a debate with me.

    Much, much harder, to be next to impossible.

    Yes, terrible. And just as worthy of scorn. But not done in a single strike with so high numbers. Sorry.
