Having lived with a Nuclear Soviet Union and Chins for most of my life, I can’t understand why Iran is even an issue. Besides, if anyone is going to fire an ICBM at us, it will be North Korea. It is time to stop supporting Israel’s determination to be the only nuclear power in the Middle East. Iran isn’t the one threatening to launch a first strike, they are only threatening to retaliate if attacked. Everyone has that right.

The claims that, “Tehran has not made a decision to pursue [nuclear weapons],” and “Iran is keeping open the option to develop nuclear weapons,” are pure poppycock. It is all based on pure speculation and assumes that we can read people’s minds. All we know is that Iran has no nukes and is not building any. Also, Khamenei has issued a Fatwa against nukes. So, what is the basis for the repetition of these stupid speculative statements?

MR – You make a valid point. I don’t see why it is alright for the US to have nuclear arms and use them to kill tens of thousands of people yet deny everyone else that same right. Iran and North Korea are sovereign countries and if they want to use their resources to develop nuclear arms so be it — if not then we need to take their sovereignity away from them. Otherwise we need to respect their rights and get out of the way. Perhaps we should even arm all countries with nuclear arms to assure parity across the board — I bet if the South and North Sudan both had nuclear arms at their disposal they’d be the best of friends.

Proving, if it was needed, that Reuters -among others- have constantly LIED by propagandizing to their audience the exact contrary: then that western nations believed that Iran was seeking nuke while every intelligence reports available was just debunking that falsehood coming with an agenda.

@ MassResident

Iran being singled out as a special nuclear villain is all due to the israeli far-right and their numerous apologists and assets in our Western nations: that’s rather simple and easily verifiable: it all started with the neo-cons and Bolton.

You should pray your God to protect Israel from its far-right and fundamentalist nutjobs, the ones endangering it since decades.

Nuclear Iran is an issue because they are an radical extremist jihadist nation that has already vowed to destroy Israel. Their own self destruction does not bother these radicals. Jihadists’ willingness to fly planes into building should be evidence enough.

Mudsharky: You are a nut job and you don’t know what you are talking about. You are confusing Iran with Al Qaeda. Iran is not an extremist or Jihadist country.

Also, Iran has never threatened your poor little innocent terrorist state of Israel. It was all based on a mis-translation of a single sentence in 2005. At the same time, the lunatics Bibi and Barak constantly threaten Iran with nuclear annihilation with there idiotic, “All options are on the table.”

As for “Jihadists flying airplanes into buildings,” Iran had nothing to do with 9/11. Not a single one of the hijackers was from Iran, while most were from Saudi Arabia which is our dear friend.
