    We really need another nuclear bomb nation! Iran somehow has convinced itself that it can build some nuclear bombs, hide them away and proceed to terrorize its neighbors, just as Iraq intended to do. Given the record of Iran neither Israel nor the US can let that happen. Hence, Iran is provoking a serious response. If if sufficiently hardens its facilities to make a nuclear bomb so that no standard bunker buster attack would work it is inviting a nuclear attack following a series of conventional attacks that prove to not work. However, there is another option, painful indeed, but it will work. Destroy Irans' oil fields and keep them inoperative. That will destroy Iran's economy completely. Iran thinks we would not do that since it will bump up the price of oil. That is not so since the loss could be made up in a variety of ways including reduced use of oil and increased use of natural gas for vehicles. Other countries can produce more oil. Iran is playing with fire and they may experience some really serious fires. They threaten to block the Harmuz Strait to oil shipments, however one can build a canal easily in Oman near its narrow tip and bypass the strait. Iran's navy can be destroyed also.
