    The biggest faut of the Iranian leaders is their honesty and bluntness. Would Israel ever use one of their nukes? Would India or Pakistan or any of the other stock pilers of nuclear weapons ever use one? It there was no scenario in which they would ever use a nuke, then they are going through a lot of bother and expense for nothing. American didn't have to use nuclear weapons on Japan. Americas existince was not threatened and they would have won the war with Japan anyway. America nuked Japan because they said that it saved a lot of lives in the American army. Probably this is true. Irans position is similar to Americas. Nixon aides have said that Israel was ready to nuke Cairo at one point, believing that Israels existince was at stake. Nixon moved quickly to remedy the situation. Israel and America are already making threats against Iran. What is Iran supposed to do? Roll over? Would Israel or America roll over? Currently Israel and America are avoiding peace by supporting Israels aggression and territorial ambitions. The entire world objects to this but Iran is the only nation actually taking action against them.
