    The cat is out of the bag and any nation that has the gelt and the desire can build nuclear weapon capability. The goal is to end the use of nuclear weapons. You really cannot stop a determined nation like Iran from acquiring them. However, they would not be used by Iran on another nation unless first attacked by that nation with nuclear weapons or in danger of losing a conventional war as was the case in 1973 when Israel was losing to Egypt and getting ready to nuke Egypt. Iran's goal is to be able to continue to provoke Israel, but it would never attack because that would be suicidal. Israel can scream but it won't help. The US is not listening. As an American Jew with strong positive feelings for Israel I am not listening. Israel is not in serious danger from Iran having nuclear weapons unless Iran is in danger from an Israeli attack. I add that the sanctions are and will continue to be effective. They will be enhanced until Iran is screaming and scheming to get off the hook. Eventually Syria will be fixed and a major route for weapons to go to Hezbollah from Iran will end. For sure the US is not going to attack Iran to satisfy Israel's unrealistic concern. We can afford to carry out sanctions but we can no longer afford wars unless attacked. We have learned that from Iraq and Afghanistan; two really stupid adventures but with great value to teach us to stay out of foreign wars unless attacked. We have our own problems now and it will take at least a few decades to fix them. We do not need another war as Israel does not need another war. Having nuclear weapons ended outright war between nuclear nations because there can be no winners. It also ended outright attacks by any nation on any nation having nuclear weapons. Israel won't be attacked. Terrorism by Muslims will continue to plague Israel, the US and advanced nations. The Muslims have an agenda and it won't go away. Attacking Iran won't change that.
