Go ahead, stop Iran. I honestly don't care. Just don't involve me in it.
That being said, I don't think this is what you have in mind. I think your intentions are to involve me in this.
I have a feeling that your idea of how to stop Iran is for the government to put a gun to my head and either force me to go over there and kill a bunch of people I have nothing against
Regardless, he wants us to pay for it.

So what if they want a nuclear program. They are being bullied by the biggest of all of the bullies in the world and do not have the army to resist the US.
The fact is Iran is a sovereign nation and if they want to develop nuclear bombs so be it, it's their business, not the worlds. And, really it is hypocritical for the nations that are part of the nuke club, to keep their own nuclear arsenal, build it up and continue to develop and improve it, while telling other nations that are not part of the club, they can't have nukes.
Furthermore, if I was a leader of any small nation, I would be developing nukes myself, just to protect the sovereignty of my peoples nation. I mean the war in Afghanistan is a perfect example of the power of nuclear bombs to protect the sovereignty of a nation, after all the US had no problem rolling to Afghanistan like avenging angels, but when Bin laden hoped the border, the US army stopped like it hit a stone wall and began opening lines of diplomacy with Pakistan. What was that invisible wall, it was the nuke wall of course.
And as far as Iran getting nukes and threatening Israel, let them then those two nations can sit back and not openly fight, like Russia and the US during the cold war; MAD does work, and the fact is the leaders in Iran are like leaders all over the world, they love power and money more then God, so contrary to what a lot of people say they won't be nuking Israel, who will retaliate with their own nuclear arsenal full force. And if America is so worried about Israel getting nuked, then just give them the tech for a missile shield and other nuclear counter measures.
Edit* Of course if the US did just give Israel, nuclear countermeasures and missle shields, it wouldn't allow them to continue beating the drums of war and trying to turn the world on Iran and other middle east nations, allowing the US to continue to try to reshape the region in their image.
Since the partition of British India in 1947 and creation of India and Pakistan, the two South Asian countries have been involved in four wars, including one undeclared war, as well as many border skirmishes and military stand-offs. Additionally, India has accused Pakistan of engaging in proxy wars by providing military and financial assistance to violent non-state actors.
Ever been to Iran buddy? Cause guess what, I have, and I can tell you from first hand experience that 90% of what the MSM tells you about them is just flat out lies.
So what if they want a nuclear program. They are being bullied by the biggest of all of the bullies in the world and do not have the army to resist the US. What would you do? Just give in? That's exactly what you expect them to do, from what I can gather, and that is one thing that they will not do.
They have a very strong sense of nationalistic pride, just as you do, and will not hesitate to protect that which is theirs, again just like most people over on this side of the pond. But that's ok, keep spreading your racist rhetoric, I'm sure you'll find someone who believes you and you can have a big back patting session.

I say let Iran have nukes if it gives them a viable way of protecting themselves.

3 - There is no evidence that Iran is developing nukes
you gotta be doing glue to believe this war propaganda ( and I know some of you do, you know who you are:lol
Well golly gee, if you think Iran MUST be stopped, than put your money where your mouth is and join the military, and get the job done.
Seriously, anyone who thinks military action with Iran is necessary at this point in time, and who won't join the military or isn't willing to die in the process of said action (because other people WILL die), is a chicken hawk.
Iran has threatened no one right? So everything in the OP said by the Iranians is BS? So all the threads pointing out Iran’s intentions are bogus?
The problems you've listed, are not problems with Iran, but the Islamic regime. It is that religion that makes Iran act the way it does, not the other way around. If we stop Iran, some other Islamic regime will pop up and do the exact same thing.
The time has come for Israel to take care of these sick leaders in Iran and prevent the rise of Islamic fundamentalists.
