I think Iranians suffered a lot in history wars and under the British who exploited them. BP took 90% of the profits under the Shah and many people lived in dirt and starvation in Iran. It was much like India I guess. They had many grievances against the British, BP oil and the Shah. I think many more are educated today than before. Why do the mullahs need atomic bombs. Islamic-Marxists work for the poor people, of which Ahmadinejad is one. Socialism was certainly needed. I think the A.B. are tools of terror, but will they really deter war, I am sorry to say, because although Israel has them, they do not deter wars. Wars of terrorism for instance can go on, etc. for ever against countries with A.B.'s. Civil war in Iran cannot be deterred by A.B.'s.
