American diplomats are complete idiots. Under the shah Iran was a puppet regime, now it is a major power. the world does not consist of USA and Israel as much as they would like to think so. Russia, China, Brazil, and most of the countries of the world are in support of Iran and their attempt to obtain the means to defend itself against jewish gangsters and American thugs. yes, the mullahs are bad but that has nothing to do with Iran acquiring the ability to defend itself.
