Stating that the causes and consequences of WW2 on Germany were anything directly related to Jews, is just plain wrong. They were a scapegoat used by
the Nazi propaganda machine. There was a severe persecution of jews in Germany before
the war started.
Prior to WW2 there was a WW1, and many of the consequences the German economy and society had to endure before WW2, were direct consequences of their
actions before/during/after World War I.
Germany was forced to enter a war because Hitler was sustaining his country on debt and credit. He made credits for steel and other materials, and he
promised he would pay back the suppliers after conquering countries that would give
him wealth. Countries like France.
He wasn't forced by others to enter a war. He planned the war years before 1933. If he was indeed forced to do anything, it was by his own actions,

noncompliances with the IAEA - but the fact remains that Iran did have several opportunities to avoid being sanctioned. They chose the hard road, and
they can't blame that on anyone but themselves.
Besides, comparing pre-WW2 Germany with the modern Iran is just... unrealistic. They have nothing in common. Not in their past, not in their History,
and not in their way of thinking or doing things.
That being said, desperate times causes desperate measures. I am suggesting that they become on the brink of starvation, hunger, or whatever
the case is
Exactly. Desperate times call for desperate measures. If I was Iran's president, when faced with international pressure and sanctions from all sides,
witnessing my own population starving and facing extreme poverty, I would halt the nuclear program.
What's the point of having a new shiny nuclear power-plant producing power for the entire country, if nobody in that country can even afford a light
