It's an unfortunate truth that civilians are punished for the things their governments do, but it's important to note that a strike against nuclear
facilities in Iran would not necessarily escalate to war. If it did, Iran would carry a lot of blame for not cooperating with the IAEA, doubly so if
they're actually "innocent" and not developing nuclear weapon technology. If Israel (I would say the US, but seriously, the US has so little to
gain from starting the attack and so much to lose this is the remotest of remote possibilities) attacked Iran's nuclear sites, Iran would probably
fold and let proper inspections take place. Either way I think the best outcome is for Iran to NOT gain nuclear weapons. We've got enough nuclear
weapons in this world, and there are some legitimate concerns about non state actors acquiring this kind of technology if Iran gets it, and if nuclear
terrorism ever becomes a reality that blood will be on the hands of the nation that let a nuclear weapon slip through their fingers.
