After WWI the "west" decided to control Germany by stifling their economy. It was not the first time in history and the response was predictable (looking at analogies of people who perceive themselves as being economically crushed by a foe calling itself "superior"). The intent right now has nothing to do with nuclear weapons, everything to do with Iran's economy. Israel is creating a monster because its leaders are too stupid to learn from history. For an ultra pragmatist who dreams of Churchill, the takeaway point is that Iran will not be judged the villain, as Germany was. Israel will be judged the instigator and Jews will pay the price for a long time.
