    There are many options for dealing with Iran's potential for developing nuclear weapons that could be delivered on a missile. Not included is waiting until too late. The immediate option of strong sanctions is not good enough. Iran will just tough it out. Here are some immediated additional options. Destroy its oil wells and ability to ship oil. Destroy its ability to receive shipments of gasoline, Start destroying its nuclear capability in order to increase the time before it will have nuclear weapons. Assasinate some of its nuclear scientists if possible. They are soldiers in the battle have no doubt. Kill Ahmadinejad with a drone or in any case make it known he is on theUShit list. Make a demonstration of a thermonuclear weapon in an unhabitated part of Iran.
