    Iran nuke, another scary crow; Some how, misinformation and terrorising our own public and making them scared is the tactics very successfully being implied here to gain political ends and move the public opinion in favour. Like wise Iran nuke is another scary crow being implanted in our minds in the western world. A useless exercise of implying an enormous pressure on Iran is in place to check their process of uranium enrichment from all fronts. We are demonising and trying to declare, Iran a dog and then expect them to bark also; Iran is one of the oldest civilisations in the world. Natives of that land are well versed with the facts that this world history has always evolved around them. They very well know the tastes of being victim as well as victors. In the present crisis, their resilience shows, that they want to buy some time only; They may be lacking in technology but if they want to produce one,- by hook or crook they will catch up to it.Nuke is not a weapon but a deterrent; If Iran is to acquire one: No one can stop it. We need to think cool;
