    Iran will never be a superpower; it takes more than a few imported bombs, and stolen ancient nuclear technology to create a superpower. Domestically, Iran is in a much worse situation than the former USSR. Except for Antarinejad's (what Iranians call Ahmadinejad- means monkey son) rhetoric, nothing else works in Iran. Believe it or not, they even have to import their gasoline from abroad. This is the land of pump and waste. Europe?s need for her oil and multi-billion dollar markets, have kept this corpse alive for the past 27 years. The so called close ?your -eyes- take the oil - sell- the goods policy or as it is labeled in Europe, Constructive Dialogue, has created a monster of this nation. Perhaps Jack Straw could find one more ?really interesting thing? about the mullahs. Nuking Iran is a mistake, as flattening Lebanon was. You can?t restore rotten policy with total fire. Helping the Iranians toppling the theocracy, not only helps Iran, Lebanon, Israel, Iraq and Afghanistan; but it would forever, kill the rampant disease of Islamic Fundamentalism.
