Can someone explain what Iran would do with its nukes if and when it has them? Its only enemy is Israel, so one must presume that its intent is to threaten Israel with its real or implied nukes. Let us assume that Iran is really developing a nuke and ultimately builds a few. So what might happen? It has no intent to use them but gains the ability to threaten Israel. however, if Iran does launch a nuclear missile at Israel it might get shot down. It might also land and kill many Israelis and destroy part of Israel. Either way Iran would be totally destroyed by an Israeli and US retaliation. Is there any doubt that with 6 Israeli nuclear and fusion bomb missile launching submarines and US ballistic missiles that Iran and its 73 million people would come to an immediate deadly end? No one would survive. Hence, it is highly unlikely that Iran would take the risk of attacking Israel. They might find a surrogate but that would not protect them. The alternate is to tell Iran we want complete access to their nuclear reactor and potential missile building program NOW. We give them one month to agree. If they do not agree we make a demonstration. Pick a remote unoccupied mountainous region, give the precise time of the demonstration several days ahead and drop a small thermonuclear warhead on it and level the mountain range; killing no one. Let the Iranian people consider the implications and then see what happens to their program and their leaders.
