Maybe the Russian tycoon has a point. If Iran was a nuclear power maybe "others" in the region would be forced to play nice, and maybe even attempt to be a good neighbor.

Though I agree that either ALL nations should have nuclear weapons, or NO nation should have nuclear weapons, I don't think Iran will ever be "recognized" as being a nuclear power. Israel has had nuclear weapons for a very long time, yet it does not acknowledge that fact, thus the world does not recognize Israel as a nuclear power.

It's a very childish game.

As for what I believe ... let Iran have them. If they misuse them, then the Administration finally has the reason they've longed for since "The Pipeline" was first discussed.
