im sure the response will be "but iran is a pariah state bent on world domination and destruction" go read some history about the amount of countries that have fallen into that category when they refuse total submission to US rule. There is no country on earth that has toppled more democratic governments than the US. there is no country in the world that supports more dicatorships than the US. there is no country in the world that has killed more civilians than the US. there is no country in the world that has used a nuclear bomb except the US. there is no country in the world Never forget: saddam remained in power against iraqis' will only by US support. Mubarak the same. Taliban was a ragged small time gang until it was in america's interest to arm, fund, support and strengthen them. then the afghans were left to live under them. Iran was a beaming democracy under mosadeq until he wanted to nationalise his own country's control over its own oil. go read about the disgraceful way in which the US pursued every dishonest means at its disposal and every type of propaganda and falsehood to overthrow him and install a dictator who starved 50million people in order to fund his megalonomic pursuit of power and wealth. theres so much propaganda around us it drowns out every whisper of truth and reality. this is no different. no country that has nuclear weapons can point the finger at another country trying to acquire them. and fear not, iran is no demonic suicidal nation and has no interest in nuking anyone. ALL that having a nuke will do is prevent the west from imposing its rules on a sovereign nation.
