    In any case, assuming that Iran develops a nuclear weapon, What are they going to do with it? Certainly not commit suicide by using it on Israel. Israel is fully protected not only by its own nuclear weapons, including thermonuclear devices, which Iran won't have, missile delivery capability, submarines that will always be viable and able to launch, and US support. There is no reason to believe Iran is suicidal. I rate the possibility that Iran would try to deliver a nuclear weapon by missile as essentially zero. Iran might give a small nuclear weapon to terrorists to bring into Israel and explode within Israel. That is real but it also poses a huge risk for Iran. Furthermore means can be implemented to reduce that probability. Meanwhile all this outcry from the people like the writer above serves Iran's purpose.
