It's about whether Iran's possession of nuclear weapons is in America's interest. America's government's job is to look out for its interests - like the government of any other nation. Most Americans and our government are not going to leave loopholes that allow Iran to cruise ahead in their development of nuclear arms. We have lots of support from Europe and the Sunni Muslims in Gulf States. We are not looking to be compromising with Iran; we are looking to prevent it from obtaining nuclear weapons, and we are not alone. Too bad if they are provoked; they have been provoked since 1979 and have adopted a policy of destabilization in the Middle East - code for Hamas and Hezbollah. Screw them.
