Bad idea, a nuclear strike against Iran is far more likely to get the US into a worse situation than it already is. I have been doing some reading on what conditions must arrise inorder for the use of Nuclear weapons. In all cases, 2 things must occure. The first is that there has to be an agreement from the country where the launch comes from, and the other is its neighbors and allies must be in full concurance of such use. Anything else would be consider an act of war by the other nations of the world. Want to see the EU and the other nations of the world stand up and take action, let the US launch a nuclear attack and it is over for the US.

I also want to point out that if we do decide to go to war with Iran, supposedly, all hell will break loose here. A while ago, I was doing a search on "Red Alert", because of a thread hear on ats saying something about kids not allowed to go home when our alert system was on red. What came up from that search was a ton of sites from the millitias here in the US. They said they were on red alert because if we went to war with Iran it would be nuclear. They planned on overthrowing the govt. before the nukes were used.
(a note to Mr. Govt. guy who might be reading this - since I have the internet through sbc who was bought out by AT&T - I am not in the millitia, I do not have any connections with the millitia, this is just what I read on the net....OK? )
April 22, 2006 -- The senior U.S. diplomat for arms control says that if Iran's claims of producing enriched uranium are true, then Iran has likely accumulated enough material for more than 10 potential nuclear weapons.
While almost no one disputes Iran’s nuclear ambitions, there is intense debate over how soon it could get the bomb, and what to do about that. Robert Gallucci, a former government expert on nonproliferation who is now the dean of the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown, told me, “Based on what I know, Iran could be eight to ten years away” from developing a deliverable nuclear weapon. Gallucci added, “If they had a covert nuclear program and we could prove it, and we could not stop it by negotiation, diplomacy, or the threat of sanctions, I’d be in favor of taking it out. But if you do it”—bomb Iran—“without being able to show there’s a secret program, you’re in trouble.”
