The bottom line with Iran and nukes is that they are a signer of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation treaty and in violation of it. I know that other countries are as well and that isnt right. But one must draw a line somewhere and with the rhetoric about Israel, the meddling in Iraq, the line needs to be here. That being said, I dont think an invasion is at all wise or even really possible considering the state currently in our armed forces. Now surgical airstrikes...?
To the best of my knowledge, the U.S. hasn't captured any Israeli or Indian soldiers in Iraq trying to kill Americans. Can't say the same about Iran.
I agree with you regarding Pakistan. They are one coup away from being a nuclearly-armed terrorist state.
Are you really comfortable sitting idly by while America's, arguably, biggest threat acquires nuclear weapons?
Iran is a signatory state of the NPT and has recently (as of 2006) resumed development of a uranium enrichment program. The Iranian government asserts that this enrichment program is a step towards a civilian nuclear energy program, which is allowed under the terms of the NPT. However, the United Nations Security Council passed a resolution ordering Iran to halt its activity. The United States and some members of the European Union have accused Iran of using this program to help covertly develop nuclear weapons, which would be in violation of article II of the NPT. Iran remains under investigation by the International Atomic Energy Agency.
In November 2003 IAEA Director General Mohamed ElBaradei reported that Iran had repeatedly and over an extended period failed to meet with its safeguards obligations, including by failing to declare its uranium enrichment program. After nearly two years of diplomatic efforts led by France, Germany and the UK, in September 2005, the IAEA Board of Governors, acting under Article XII.C of the IAEA Statute, found that these failures constituted non-compliance with the IAEA safeguards agreement, not the NPT itself. The United States contends on this basis that Iran violated Article II as well as Article III of the NPT.
Like it or not, Iran is a sovereign nation and has a right to have a nuclear bomb. Israel, India, Pakistan, among others, all have nuclear weapons and we not only condone it, but give them billions in aid. Did anybody ever think that the catalyst for Iran's nuclear program has been fear? After all, a certain imperialist nation, we all know, seems to be employing a new form of manifest destiny in the middle east.
That's up for debate.
However, if the AQ does attain any kind of significant power in Iran the prospect of a nuclear holocaust rises dramatically.
