    As I've said before I don't particularly want to see Iran with nukes. On the other hand the world is full of potentials I don't particularly want to see, like global warming, economic crises, Israel becoming a Jewish chauvinist version of Iran. What I find frustrtaing is that Israel has managed to get Iran to the top of the international agenda, when it doesn't deserve to be there. You'll note in post 4, I'm not saying leav Iran alone on nukes, I'm saying leave Iran alone for the moment to put pressure on Israel to get serious about peace. Because everything's linked in the Middle East. Israel and its fans keep on bleating that Irans has to be dealt with BEFORE Palestine, just as they did the same with Iraq. Rubbish. They want it that way so that Israel will be under no real pressure to make concessions for peace. So let's it do it the other way round. Let's say, we'll start pressuring Iran properly AFTER Israel starts withdrawing from the West Bank. Then peace can break out all over.
