Sure we do. If you are referring to WWII, that was the only thing that ended the war and saved Democracy. Japan received several warnings and would not comply. I do not agree with that kind of weapon anyway. Who wins when something like that is used ? NO ONE!!! Why should one of the most volatile regions ever be allowed to own such destructive power ?

And look at some of the wackiest beliefs of the more fundamental Christians in the US - and they have a hell of a lot of influence in your country.
Should the religious zealots in the US be denied their Right To Bear Arms because many view them as cranks and whacko's?
What gives the US or anyone else the right to dictate what other nations can do to defend themselves?
I agree that possession of such weapons brings with it a heightened degree of responsibility.

You think so? How many wars has Iran started in the last 100 years? 200 years? Here is the answer: 1826 during the 4th Russo-Persian War
Pakistan has started a few more wars in that time frame. America, has been pretty much constantly at war in that time frame. Israel is pretty much always at war. Yet these countries are all perfectly able to own and not use nuclear weapons, two of which tell Iran that they aren't allowed to have nuclear weapons.

Two men walk into a gun shop.
One man, want's the weapon for protection.
The other person, wants the weapon to kill a Jewish guy.
Do you sell the weapons to both men?
Seems to me you kick Christians around like a bodily function. Those Christians and their wacky ideas of stopping infanticide or telling people to love their neighbors are right up there with 14th century mullahs that hack peoples limbs off or behead them.
They should all be eradicated from the face of the planet huh?
By the way I'm a Buddhist I'll bet you can find shame in that too?
The two have nothing to do with one another.
.....when someone misuses their individual right to keep and bear arms, due process is used to strip their 2nd amendment right from them.
When a sovereign nation has proven to not be responsible enough to keep and bear certain types of arms, in this case nuclear, then said nation should not be allowed to have them.
I would say that Iran's past threats and rhetoric have deemed them not responsible enough to have nuclear weapons,
.... just as if I were to go around threatening to shoot people, I should lose my right to own a firearm.
