  1. Why shouldn’t Iran have their own nuclear bomb? That would at the very least, stop the possible wars of aggression that Israel or the US would carry out against it.

    It’s a deterrent. I don’t see them using it. Especially considering what would happen to them AFTER they did.

    The hypocrisy is amazing. Israel is a colonial project, still in the works. Constantly at war. Committing atrocity after atrocity.

    The US has been at war since inception. It has destroyed an entire country and is now aiming to do the same to another?

    There is no good and bad side in the real world. We’re just a mega-corporation w/ great PR and a bunch of stupid sheep to eat it up.

    1. Not sure that’s the best argument. If you’re right, then why not give a nuclear weapon to every country having a spat with any of its neighbors. Will that prevent them from military adventures & “wars of aggression?”

      1. We should be guaranteeing Iran against attack. Once we’ve done that, then we can attempt to dissuade Ahmadinejad (who is quite an approachable guy) from developing defensive weapons. Persuading him not to develop WMD is of fairly trivial import, the imbalance in weapons in the region make it almost impossible to imagine him launching aggression.

        Since, in addition, we know that the Iranians haven’t attacked anyone for 270 years they deserve the benefit of any doubt that might remain.

        Furthermore, we should be recognising the high degree of threat that Iranians feel under. They’ve been attacked with two forms of WMD already, and the US (in particular) encouraged the aggression on them. Self-defense is a perfectly valid reason to be armed – or that’s an argument that Americans will understand, anyway.

  2. Couldn’t agree more, LD. Unless and until the U.S. and Israel
    (a) completely liquidate their nuclear arsenals,
    (b) surrender their own control of the nuclear fuel cycle, and then
    (c) agree to submit to anytime-anywhere IAEA inspections to verify that they have fully disarmed,
    neither country has any standing at all to whine about Iran’s nuclear program.

    “Do as we say, not as we do” does not cut it, has never cut it, and never will cut it. Got it, everyone?
