He was telling me the main reason that Iran is viewed as threat by America is because if Iran gets nuclear power and eventually develop Weapons, this would jeopardize the neighboring Arab countries, who are pawns of the US.
Most of these neighboring Arab countries do not have a political system, they do not elect anyone, this countries have been running by a "royal" family(in fact, they actually killed real royals and took over, people in middles east know this but do not talk about it). This Royal family in power due to support from US, thus, these royal families are in good relationship with US(and the benefits from each other).
Iran being the only country to rise up with rules and laws and election in Middle east, and if they do have the nuclear power means that they would be fearless.
Iran getting power is bad in many ways for US. i should add this because it is important, he does think the president should be changed but he does not want what happened to Iraq.

A President? Maybe elected properly, maybe not - but certainly not the leader of the Nation.
