It's not like you have any right to attack people on the NPT, since you have more nukes than anyone else already. What Iran is doing with their nuclear programme is certainly not as bad as what the US has done, by far.
We are talking about Iran, you remember the nation where people are fleeing from to Europe? It's not what have the Iranians done, it's what they will do. You have a nation run by mullahs from the 5th century led by a President that has stated he will wipe Israel off the map. Now you tell me again why we wouldn't want the Iranians to have nukes. Please answer that question based on my comment.
The only reason the US doesn't want Tehran having nuclear capibilities is because it puts israels dominant present in the middle east under threat and also puts the USA's presence in the middle east under threat. To allow Israel to be able to strike other countries nuclear power stations is also hindering that nations progress to develop as it needs too.
I understand everyones worry about Syrian and Iranian nuclear weapon production, but to be honest no one nowadays is stupid enough to even use nuclear weapons. To nuke Israel would definately be stupid as the middle east would become an instantaneous glass desert. I'm also sure Israel has more than enough nuclear weapons that it can defend itself with.
Well of course it puts Israels existance at stake. They openly said thier intention is to remove Israel from the equation. The world has nothing against civilian atomic energy, but please mate, this nation is not pursueing this for that cause.
How can you measure if a nation is stupid enough to use nukes when they openly flaunt thier endless ranks of suicide bombers? Nukes don't defend, if thier is nothing left to defend, hence mutually assured destruction...
That won't happen. History is repeating itself yet again. Iraq 2002, Iran 2007. No different. There is going to be a war whether what they are being accused of is true or not. The neocons would lose too much to have Iran gain such a power foothold in the middle east.
And the "sponsor of terrorism" is a ridiculous argument. Iran is sponsoring terrorism the same way the USA is sponsoring terrorism and has done for decades, to further its own means and agendas. Its just a part of modern ideological warfare.
If you haven't noticed, Iran is brutal to it's people and would be more than willing to be brutal to anyone under thier aire of influence. "Shariah Law or Death!"
About sponsor of terrorism. Don't be misguided. They certainly provide weapons to maximise civilian casualties. The US does not do that. If you accuse the US of being a sponsor of terrorism, than you and I may rumble on the topic. Because I'd have to assume the UK are also sponsors of terrorism?
Well by that standard, the insurgents in Iraq aren't terrorists either. They're just fighting off an invading army. Maybe it's time someone stepped in and supported them!
Actually they mostly are warlords fighting against a democratically elected government. Remember the elections they had. So who exactly are they fighting? Themselves?
They certainly are/seems more capable of killing themselves than US troops. What exactly are they "insurging against?"
They want thier larger piece of the pie like anyone else. That's what they are fighting for. A piece of the money and control. They are not fighting against US oppression. Please dude, we'd love to get our troops out of there. But it'd be a crime against humanity if we left too soon...
