Look mate, whilst The Right to Bear Arms and the Freedom of the Press are both interesting and very important issues and worthy of serious and
intelligent debate and discussion they are totally irrelevant to this subject.
Granted this is a generalisation but it is my experience that people who repeatedly bring the topics up here on ATS regardless of the thread subject
matter do so to pursue some personal bigotted or pre-conceived agenda or rhetoric.
And quite frankly it's boring the tits off me and derailing the thread!
The simple fact of the matter is that whilst there is certainly no love for the current Iranian regime here in the UK and Ahmadinejad is a figure of
mistrust there is still massive opposition to any military confrontation with Iran.
It would be political suicide for Cameron to commit any actual military support at all.
The Liberal Party, large sections of which are already very uncomfortable with their current relationship with The Tories, could very possibly
withdraw their support for The Coalition thus forcing a General Election.....and Cameron does not want to risk that.
Personally I have no problem with nuclear power etc providing the highest possible safety regulations are strictly adhered to and I don't see why Iran
should not be allowed to develop nuclear power.
In fact we should work with them to ensure the highest possible standards are followed etc.
However, I am very uncomfortable about the thought of Iran gaining nuclear weapon capability.
That is why I think it's imperative we work with them and explore every possible diplomatic solution to this situation.
The same applies for any other country that don't currently have nuclear weapons.
