Marie, can you be so naive as to believe that "things will calm down once Iran gets her equalizer?' Haven't you seen the way that the Iranian leadership has treated its own people, beating, killing, jailing, etc. for wanting the truth to come out about their election results? And they are known to be behind many of the terrorist organizations in the mideast, smuggling weapons to them and so forth. Iran's leadership knows no international law, as was shown when they first violated it by taking the American embassy staff hostage. They shift between threatening and double-talking lying, delaying, etc. and things will only calm down once the opposition in Iran who care more about the people's wellbeing than about their own power take over.
