I am starting this thread in order to get some feedback. I'm interested in what some of your opinions may be.
If you are an American, or anyone at all really who pays attention to what goes on around you and in this world of ours, you will know that the United
States and Israel are lobbying extremely hard to deter Iran from pursuing their nuclear program ambitions. Iran claims that they are innocently trying
to develop a nuclear program solely for nuclear energy. Israel and the US do not trust their intentions and claim that the leadership of Iran want
nuclear weapons in order to use them against their enemies - particularly those two countries.
Now, we all know that the leaders of Iran are highly unstable and driven by hate and religious fervor, and nuclear weapons in their hands would be a
huge hit to world confidence concerning the objective of peace and stability, especially in the Middle East region. It is debatable how close they are
to their goal, and also the capability of their military.
Basically, my question is this: Why would the nefarious regime that runs Iran pursue a nuclear program for weapons in the first place, under the
scrutiny of the whole world, when they could very easily obtain these weapons or the material for their construction through secretive means? There
have been multiple reports throughout the years detailing the fact that many countries nuclear stockpiles cannot be tracked or have been lost. You
also have the arms market being big business, and we have seen in the past countries or groups getting a hold of weapons they should not have ever
had. I'm thinking of Osama acquiring a US military plane that was ultimately approved by the Pentagon. It seems as though it wouldn't be that
difficult to obtain these weapons for Iran, considering their resources (oil, they have something everyone wants) and their allies, mainly Russia. A
country that after the fall of the USSR reportedly lost track of much of their arsenal.
So why is Iran going the legitimate route under the watchful eye of others? If they motives are truly based on destructive means are they not going
about it the wrong way?
