For those people who say that were creating a weapons nuclear program and that were going to nuke U.S or Israel. We all know thats not going to happen and as long as we are monitered than theres nothing to worry about. I think U.S and Israel should keep it cool and bush even knows if he attacks than we'll start our nuclear weapons program so you should ask yourself, who is it to blame that were going nuclear for the bomb if we were to be invaded?.

Jerusalem/Rome, November 1 - Italian Foreign Minister Gianfranco Fini said on Tuesday the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) should refer Iran to the UN Security Council over its controversial nuclear programme .
Speaking in Jerusalem after talks with his Israeli counterpart Silvan Shalom, Fini said the issue was extremely pressing following Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's call for the destruction of Israel .
Ahmadinejad's remark last Wednesday that Israel "should be wiped off the map" was a "terrifying threat", said Fini .
"I think the entire international community must keep its guard up to ensure that Iran does not produce nuclear warheads as this would be a high-risk scenario for humanity," he added

Iran needs to give full and open access to everything if they are going to convince Europe that they don't have a nuclear weapons program.
Why? they are the ones within range of Iranian missles.
The US is not.
The US is taking a back seat on this one
Europe are the ones you have to worry about, because you best understand, they won't mind asking the US for help in taking out Iran if they don't play ball.

- Hang on AMM, 'Europe' is not acting anything like you imagine.
We are perfectly happy to go down the road of inspection and cooperation, our problem is a US administration that at almost every turn insists that conditions are not harsh enough and who keep upping the ante on this matter.
- True and yet the tone of those supposedly the most 'threatened' could hardly be more different to that of the USA, hmmmm?
- The US sees the Iranian 'threat' in terms of stopping them subdue Iraq completely and hence the entire region.
That is why the US is going along with these absurd ideas of an Iranian nuclear threat to Europe.
- Yaeh but only because Iraq has become the mess it is and even Bush's crowd can see a benefit in Europe taking the fall for a diplomatic failure (caused in the main by US demands and conditions they want to try and impose knowing full well Iran will tell the US to get lost).
- Yet Europe couldn't be further from any such laughable notions if we tried AMM.
'We' have the capability to defend ourselves from nuclear attack
we have the retaliatory capability in kind
but you will not hear any great European enthuisiasm for this suggested war or any significant call from Europe to "take out Iran".

No, you do not Sminkey. You have no anti-missle system, and as terrorism acts of the past half century have shown, you have no defence against a terrorist style nuclear attack.
That you do, though I doubt Europe has the will to retaliate
BS. I have friends from Scotland, Ireland, Spain, and Germany that dissagree with your opinion.
Any way, you will not hear any great enthusiam from Americans about invading Iran either - just the willingness to accept that it may be a needed action.
