    A few points to consider: (1) Iran and US are declared enemies (no diplomatic relations, Iran govt stages "death to america" celebrations regularly at the site of pillaged US embassy in Tehran, etc). Any US president that allows such an enemy to obtain nuclear weapons would be in violation of his/her constitutional responsibility. (2) There is no hurry to bomb or attack Iran. It need not be done this year, and attack should be held off until the Useless Nonentities (UN) have done more to demostrate its inability to do anything. Same goes for EU bureaucrats. (3) Let there be no doubt that US military has firepower to destroy as much of Iran as is necessary. Bringing stability and democracy to a defeated nation may be extremely difficult, but rampant destruction is an easy task. Ability of Iran to retaliate is limited at best. (4) US president has no constitutional responsibility to provide free health care and welfare to indigent US citizens or illegal alien residents
