Your Powerball analogy is ridiculous. Iran started this program by defining what they WANTED. (a nuke) They get what they WANT by pretending to have a civilian program, stockpiling way too much enriched uranium, building way too many enrichment plants, perfecting their missile delivery systems, miniturising the warhead, perfecting neutron intitiators, all the while insisting all these activities have other purposes. Only a complete imbecile could ignore the military dimensions of the Iranian nuclear program.
