It is correct that a crazy leader has a deterrent advantage. Iranian leaders are quite rational, and smart too. Their ultimate goal, like any other dictator, is to stay in power. They TRY to look crazy and scary. It is to their advantage because it scares foreign powers and stops them from trying to interfere. They also get the benefit of having an "evil foreign enemy", so they can use fear and hate among their own population and stay in power. The point of having a bomb is just an extra deterrent against foreign intervention. They will not use a bomb even if they get one; if a nuke goes off ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, all fingers will be pointed at Iran and they know it. They will be forcibly deposed and they know it. That's the last thing they would want. They just want to stay in power, and so far, they have succeeded. They are rational and SMART. A seemingly rational but stupid George Bush is far scarier. Bush is like Lennie from Steinbeck's "Of Mice and Men". Really Dangerous!
