India, Pakistan, Iran and Israel.
Hell the whole planet for that matter.
There is no honor in atomizing somebody.

The last thing I want here is for Israel or the US to "pre-emptively" invade Iran.

Preemptive Strike however is a very real possibility. Even Obama isn't that dense for the go ahead with an invasion.
"... Those are the world’s worst tyrants. And then he says he wants to unilaterally go in and potentially bomb a nation which is our friend. We’re trying to strengthen Musharraf, we’re trying to strengthen the foundations of democracy and freedom in that country so they will be able to reject the extremists. … It is wrong for a person running for the president of the United States to get on TV and say we’re going to go into your country unilaterally."
Operation Cyclone was the code name for the United States Central Intelligence Agency program to arm the Afghan mujahideen during the Soviet war in Afghanistan, 1979 to 1989. Operation Cyclone is one of the longest and most expensive covert CIA operations ever undertaken; funding began with $20-30 million per year in 1980 and rose to $630 million per year in 1987.
In the late 1980s, Pakistani prime minister Benazir Bhutto, concerned about the growing strength of the Islamist movement, told President George H. W. Bush, "You are creating a Frankenstein."
The U.S. says that all of its funds went to native Afghan rebels and denies that any of its funds were used to supply Osama bin Laden or foreign Arab mujahideen. It is estimated that 35,000 foreign Muslims from 43 Islamic countries participated in the war.

Just like Saddam's "WMD" we sold them the technology and now they're the bad guy..Does anyone think that maybe it's time to start reevaluating our foreign policy? The Bush administration recently sold the Saudi's components of nuclear technology, are we to invade the Saudi's in 15 to 30 years over their nuclear programs? It's time to start looking at the facts and stop listening to the war propaganda-Propaganda that is selling us the Iranians as evil seekers of WMD. THIS CRAP HAS GOT TO STOP.
