    There was a time when Iran wanted nuclear power for peaceful purposes. This is not at all sinister. Japan and Eurpean nations have nuclear power as does America and Israel. The trend is for more nuclear power in the world.Since Iran is also the enemy of Israel, this program gave Israel an opening to play chicken little, one of their favorite roles. As the self panic of Israel and Americe escalated, they began threatening to attack Iran, even to the point of threatening a nuclear attack on Iran (all options are on the table is a phrase much used by both Israel and America). At this point, Iran became more than justified in pursuing nuclear weapons. They had been threatened with a nuclear attack by their worst enemy and that enemies powerful ally. This cannot be ignored. Natrually words were exchanged by both sides, but Iran was at an obvious disadvantage against wide ranging nuclear destruction. In order to restore the relative calm that existed between Israel and Iran a few years ago it is critical that Iran develops nuclear weapons as quickly as possible.
