The potential threat of Iranians spreading germs and virus from the thousands of convenience stores they own in America is a much greater threat than what a first generation nuclear bomb would be. Especially now that there's a virus that has a 50 percent mortality rate.

From Wiki

Three influenza pandemics occurred in the 20th century and killed tens of millions of people, with each of these pandemics being caused by the appearance of a new strain of the virus in humans. Often, these new strains appear when an existing flu virus spreads to humans from other animal species, or when an existing human strain picks up new genes from a virus that usually infects birds or pigs. An avian strain named H5N1 raised the concern of a new influenza pandemic, after it emerged in Asia in the 1990s, but it has not evolved to a form that spreads easily between people.

Clearly, Iran has no need of a nuke.

Nukes are symbolic in that they are not easy at all to make. Sure they cold use bioweapons but that doesnt reflect the sohphistication of splitting an atom. Nukes are about prestige. Nukes are about a country saying hey we can master the construction, development and control of the nuclear fuel cycle as well as weaponize it. Its not so much the nukes themselves but the science behind it.

Plenty of proof they are "looking into it". Have they built one? No.

Nobody messes with North Korea? That's the most isolated and most impoverished country in the world. Even China dropped support three years ago. You're talking about a country where only the ruler can afford to be fat. I'd say that North Korea, through sanctions, has taken many hits. Just because we don't provoke them to war doesn't mean they're not being messed with politically.

I think where Iran and nukes are concerned, it's about weapons. What makes the topic so hot is the knowledge that if Iran has a nuke, they will use it. The atom splitting would occur when they try to decide whether to hit US or Israel.

no, just the threat of building them is usually enough to get leverage

Does Iran need nukes? Any country threatened by us should have them. Why not? Who are we to tell? If they had them it would at least deter us. Kinda like firearms, if you don't have one, your at the mercy of the "bad guys". I say let them or any country build them and do what the hell they want, and IF they do something stupid, then the world will take care of them. I hate this preemptive approach. Guilty until proven innocent..

Thats what the MSM would have you believe. As the OP stated, Iran could wreak much more havoc with bioweapons and they have them so why havent they used them? The nuke is for prestige because once a country knows how to master this, they can do many other things......its about joining an exclusive highly technological club.

When did we become the bad guys? I can't see US as the bad guys. Trying to civilize barbaric nations is still doing a good thing.

Hanging, or threatening to hang, women who commit adultery against a dead husband, putting people in prison for not agreeing with the government, chopping off the hands and feet of thieves, isolating a population from the world community until they're totally backwards, these are things I see as bad. This is Iran.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

The United States has sent prisoners to secret prisons in nations such as Syria to be tortured, or to dissapear.

They've run an illegal prison in Guantanamo for the better part of 3 decades. Are accomplices to the deaths of over 500 thousand Iraqi civilians. The nation that has broken the most UN laws and treaties and done so while telling the world it was doing so.

I could go on and on and on, the last 100 years the United States has had it's hand in everybody's cookie jar and has had no quams about killing innocents or breaking international and domestic laws to attain what it wanted.

Domination.

The US people aren't bad, but the government of the USA is the biggest terrorist organization on the planet.

Well 2nd. NATO comes first.

And "barbaric" of course is what you (US) define as such, because, naturally, you are the epitome of civilization.

There's a huge difference between nuclear energy production and nuclear weapons. There is actually no proof that Iran even considered looking into nukes to be honest... the only "thing" is that cruddy IAEA report which is clearly biased and influenced by american politicians, its nothing more than an exageration.

I'm going to have to agree that our government is out of hand, but not just anybody gets put in Guantanamo. The people there were taken out of terrorist camps and such. But the question was whether Iran actually needed a nuclear weapon to deal with US. If they really wanted to take us down a notch, they could do it without a nuke.

Does any nation need nukes? Sort of hypocritical to single them out alone as the bad guy when all nations commit crimes.
