Canada has no nukes because along time ago we signed a contract with the US saying that we will never try to make Nucleur weapons. We weren't scared, the US just said, your not making nukes, and we like stupid people said ok Mr. President.
So Iran constantly threatens the security of the US, the only thing I've seen or read that remotely threatened the western world was their leader saying that if the US tried to invade Iran there would be hell to pay. He didn't say he was going to nuke the US, he is just saying your not going to push me around like you did to saddam and make me your b__ch

Also pushing Saddam around... Please do some research before you try to make point, not aiming at insulting you or anything, but Saddam was not a man who should have been in power.

Saddam should have been taken out in the first gulf war. Waiting made the US look complacent to the rest of the world.
People seem to forget that he was your "friend" when he was gassing people in the Iran-Iraq war
and it was only when he started going against US Mid East policy that he was seen as an enemy.

Iran should definitely be allowed to have nuclear weapons. It's the safest way for them to guarantee that they won't be invaded by the U.S.. The U.S. would only invade Iran if they knew 100% they had no nukes, and only after serious attrition to their army.
The United States of America only fights Third World countries, nobody else. Only when they are sure they will win. Does that make them cowards? Maybe. Bullies? Most definitely.
North Korea knows this. That's why they're happily thumbing their nose at treaties when they can. With their military power and the threat of them having a nuclear weapon, the US is far too afraid to invade.
They snubbed the United Nations and most of the rest of the world when invading Iraq, under false pretenses, so what is to make people think they won't do it again.
Since the US is the only country to have used an atomic weapon to mass murder civilian populations, I would think they are the country who SHOULDN'T have them, but hey, what do I know, right?
