Regardless of the rhetoric and suspicious from the US and its cronies, there is still not a shred of credible evidence that Iran is pursuing nuclear weapons. It is rather ironic that the US was the country that started the Iranian nuclear program and also encouraged it to develop nuclear technology to reduce its dependence on refined petroleum imports. Suddenly now that Iran is making strides towards reducing its dependence on fossil fuels, the US goes on the attack even as the US itself is looking towards building new nuclear power plants to reduce its own carbon footprint. What is even more hypocritical of the US attack upon Iran's nuclear power program is the US's continued flouting of the NPT by providing nuclear assistance and turning a blind eye to non-signatories to the NPT in the region that do possess nuclear weapons.
