Number of times UN has inspected Iran's nuclear facilities: 240
Number of times Israel have allowed UN inspections: 0
By following a doctrine of ambiguity, Israel have amassed their own nuclear arsenal without having to tell anyone about it. Someone in Israel did
squeal about it, and they were shoved into jail very quickly for a very long time.
I'm not saying Israel is necessarily bad, I just don't like the hubbub about mentioning nukes in the Mid East without talking about Israel's own
Iran's main nuclear reactor is a light-water reactor, I don't believe it could be used to make 'weapons grade' uranium to be manufactured into
The IAEA doesn't agree that Iran is developing weapons: the head of the IAEA even said he would RESIGN if Iran was attacked. And he was right in
saying an attack on Iran would turn the whole Middle East into one big fireball.
People might not like gas/fuel/petrol prices now, but oil would triple its price if Iran, in any event of attack, closed the Strait of Hormuz - up to
40% of the word's oil flows through it everyday. This is why there is division among the neocons about launching an attack - Iran might be outclassed
militarily, but they're in a very strategic position.
Iraq and Afghanistan are in ear-shot of Iran, too. What's to say Iran wouldn't go down with guns blazing and let off the 11, 000 or so missiles
it's been building up? They have them pointed at Israel as well.
Last but not least, Russia and China have vested interests in Iran and it's oil and gas. Russia is getting a big huge slab of cash by building
Iran's nuclear plants.
As for the CIA snooping around in Iran, this is the same dirty tricks that America played out with the Soviet Union when they were in
Afghanistan - fund terrorism to fight proxy wars. The US is currently funding terrorist groups inside Iran.
"The friend of my enemy is my friend" lives in the war on terror.
I've already lost whatever dwindling respect I had for the United States, an attack involving the US on Iran couldn't make it any lower. But let's
not kid ourselves - Iran's facilities are underground and spread around some vast countryside. The US could get bogged down very fast and for a very
As I mentioned, oil would sky rocket. The price now would seem like paying for a stick o' gum.
Just look at Iraq. That was supposed to be over in a few weeks. So much for regime change there, and whatever WMDs Saddam had, you guys sold them
to him to fight Iran!
Just, wow, spin the bottle and decide on what country to trample into next and get it over with and see how far the world 'improves' for the
