Mutually assured destruction exist for a reason. I personally don't see why Iran can't have a nuke if nearly every other country on earth can. The point is they won't use it, unless they want their entire country destroyed. The other argument is that they are terrorist by nature & don't mind sacrificing themselves to wipe out Israel.
I still doubt this. I don't think Ahmadinejad is insane, nor would he have his nation decimated just to enact mass murder upon others. The Iranian people would never consent to such an action either. It's more likely that a random terrorist group non-affiliated with a government would even consider such a thing.
Another factor here is whether or not their warhead can reach Israel or the US. Considering we have a very well-guarded airspace it's likely that the missile would be intercepted.
So, what if Iran got a nuke? Virtually nothing.edit on 9-1-2013 by Raelsatu because: (no reason given)
