Iran is a bunch of towel heads that think they are tougher and more relevant than they are. They are not a world power, they will be smashed in a couple of months, if not weeks. The sad thing here is....we need to stop spreading"democracy" like we do...some people don't like it or want it....weird as that sounds.
I'm not a big fan of humans telling other humans how to live...I am Libertarian and how I choose to live is my choice so F*ck off....but...by going in, smashing a country and then saying 'well you are free now" is not a great thing to do.
Yes...we have become the most powerful military in the world...we have within our capacity to kill the entire world a couple of time....does that in itself not bother people? Why would you ever want to rise to that position? I really don't want to kill people...nor do I want to be killed...I just want to live my life and provide a good future for my kids and grand-kids...and I would prefer no one had to die to accomplish that.

I say, as long as they are in adherence to the terms and conditions of the treaty...we leave them alone. Who are we to say how they can produce electricity. Aside from that, yes, they probably are developing weapons...and why wouldn't they? They are surrounded by nations that have nuclear capability...it's the best deterrent in the world...you blow me up, I blow you up....stupid,... but effective.
What would happen if Israel nuked them? well...a lot of things would happen....none good....
I agree with Ron Paul about this issue and the new sanctions...we are being a bully and have some kind of fascination with them...we need to let it go...things need to go down as they go...if Israel and Iran go to war....who cares? I don't...Israel would kick their butts and it would be done....we need to stay out of this crap...this whole idea that Israel is "God's chosen people" is a religious thing and should not be controlling our foreign policy....separation of church and state...remember that? If Israel goes to war, so they go...that is their choice and we need to tell them "whatever you decide to do is ON YOU""..."we will not participate...period.

Most of the tension in Iran is due to the current build up of the inevitable war with Iran which is no secret any longer.
I would be a little worked up and p*ssed off too if i knew that some big bullies were coming to invade us.

The leaders of Iran constantly refer to the USA as "the great Satan" and use other such inflammatory language. Is it any wonder that the US might fear an Iranian bomb? Aside from Israel, they obviously consider the US their biggest enemy.
If someone constantly tells you that you are an enemy of theirs, you might worry when they buy a gun.
