IF IRAN WANTED TO MAKE A BOMB, WE WOULD BE BRAVE ENOUGH TO TELL YOU? IRAN WON'T ALLOW THE US TO DOMINATE THE REGION Sounds to me more like an admission of guilt than a way of saying we don't want nukes. How else do they think they are going to stop the US dominating the region without a nuke? If it came to conventional war Iran right now with just the recources the US has in the Gulf, 2 carrier fleets & it has airbases that alone would be enough to wipe out the entire Iranian military machine within a week. If Iran had a nuke they could try and be the bully boy of the region pushing around he Gulf States threatening Israel. Maybe even start making demands like the US close its airbases. They would also be recognized as a global military power in the hope it will give them muscle when dealing with the west in diplomatic problems.. We don't want to risk Iran using that nuke so lets try and appease them. Iran NEEDS a nuke for its long term bully boy ambitions.
