Let us consider the list of nations which have chosen not to build nukes. Sweden, Argentina, Brazil, Egypt, Japan, and perhaps a few I have forgotten. And let us consider those who have destroyed their nuclear weapons: South Africa, but ONLY because blacks would have received them when the government changed from racist to democratic. Iran has no nuclear weapons, and probably does not have a nuclear weapons program unless it is to develop a 'break out capability.' And thus is is very cheap and easy for Iran to talk of 'eliminating nukes.' There is a nation which has - Olmert blunder excepted - has never admitted to having nukes, yet basks in the glory of possessing them. And how can one give up what is not admitted? Iran has chosen to open with a cheap shot. No nation with nukes is going to give them up, though EVERY nation with them has come to understand their limited utility in the real world. And thus it is easy for Iran to make them the villain and it the 'hero.'
