    The ones not living up to their full modern potential? The ones who just can't share technical credit with their many highly paid foreign rogue scientists and technicians as every national achievement in partnership with them suddenly becomes only proud, indigenous, regime sponsored breakthroughs relying only on the smarts of the Iranian people? The self-appointed Islamist leaders who are highly desirous of being the spiritual spearhead that will single-handedly deliver Imperial Islam from its centuries old doldrums after its former Golden Age to taking its supposedly rightful position on the world stage as the final religious solution for all mankind? Iran despise the Arabs and Turks in their neighborhood and think much more highly of themselves as being more cultured, intelligent, and capable in comparison. It is not beautiful Persian carpets, tasty pistachios, or scrumptious Caspian Sea caviar that will propel them to world stature, especially amongst the Islamist nations, but the successful pursuit of a dual-use nuclear program, the achievement of a full nuclear cycle, the weaponization of their ICBM missile program with nuclear warheads, and their march to achieve regional hegemony and beyond.
