    It sounds a little bit too much like the "intelligence" provided by the Western agencies through Iraqi "spies" previous to the invasion of Iraq. "Oooooh...Iran is a danger to the world, it's leaders are mad and will use nukes..." Yeah right! The only thing the Iranian regime wants to do is perpetuating themselves in power, and nuclear weapons will help them achieve that, by preventing the same fate that befell on Iraq and Afghanistan. Ahmenidajad might be a cruel bastard but he is not stupid. He leaves the religious rhetoric and superstition for the masses, while he builds around himself the necessary tools to stay in power. Nuclear power being just one of them. IF Iran manages to get a nuclear weapon it would be only to be used as a leverage in geo-strategic negotiations with whoever they perceive as a threat to their nation (read position in power). Bad? Oppressive? Cruel?Megalomaniac? Yes to all. Mad? Not as much as this guy will want us to believe, so we do the dirty work for him.
