Jim_Callahan: The problem is that the national government of Iran is none of those things. They were talked into nuclear power, something that's just eminently sensible for a nation in their situation, because of the potential to make weapons. That is to say, they have the worst ass-backwards priorities of even any theocrats we know.

Iraq didn't have nukes, look what happened to them. Meanwhile North Korea shiats on us regularly, and we respond by making fun of their leader for being a fatass, and that's about all we do. Considering the rhetoric coming from the USA, Iran's government would be criminally negligent if they didn't pursue nuclear technology. That's not to say they aren't terrible, but attempting to develop nuclear weapons might be the sanest thing they've ever done. We have sown the wind and are reaping the whirlwind.
