    I recommend the following brilliant quiz to learn some fundamental facts about Iran: http://detailedpoliticalquizzes.wordpress.com/iran-quiz/ For example: Question 15. Is Iran a signatory of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT)? -Yes. http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2010/04/18/world/AP-ML-Iran.html -It’s simply the case that “Iran can’t construct a nuclear weapon at all as long as it is being actively inspected by the International Atomic Energy Agency, which it is (and yes, including the Fordo facility). There is no facility with uranium or enrichment facilities that is off limits to the IAEA inspectors. No country under active inspection by the UN has ever developed a nuclear weapon. Israel, which always refused such inspections, has some 400 nuclear warheads….So how will we know if Iran has decided to weaponize its nuclear enrichment program? We can at least be suspicious if they withdraw from the NPT and kick out the inspectors.” http://www.juancole.com/2012/09/its-psychological-warfare-stupid-why-netanyahu-really-wants-to-destroy-iran.html
