    Pres. Putin doesn't seem to think so. While he may not be a friend of Israel, he is also not a fool and will not want Iran to have nuclear weapons, either. Dr. El Baradei, the head of the IAEA, also doesn't think so. The UN was right once before, at the same time that the director of the CIA was saying it was a "Slam Dunk". In addition, no one in the US has tried face-to-face negotiations with Iran. It might help, just as it did in North Korea, also a country allegedly led by a total nut job. Even if Iran were to get nuclear weapons, that does not mean that there is no possibility of deterrence. And the constant comparison of Iran with 1938 Germany as the reason to initiate a war is just ludicrous. Germany was a world power. Iran, even an Iran with nuclear weapons, remains highly vulnerable, perhaps more vulnerable with them than without them, as they will no longer be protected by the NPT.
