    The question is whether Iran can be 'stopped' from developing a bomb. The answer is that an attack will only ensure it develops the bomb. If Iran wants to develop a bomb the ONLY thing that can prevent it is to conquer and occupy Iran to prevent it from developing a bomb. Any attack upon Iran will most certainly make it clear that ONLY a bomb will prevent further attacks. After all, did not the presumed possession of nuclear weapons end any threat to Israel from any Arab nation? I for one, would rather not see another nuclear power. ANY new nuclear power. We have too many nuclear weapons in the world. But ONLY an Iran which sees no advantage in being protected by possessing nuclear weapons is an Iran which will not develop them. Either Iran is to be invaded, subjected, conquered and occupied. OR there is NO military option to preventing it from becoming a nuclear power.
