With economic ties to European countries most notably France (why is they always are in the mix) and China along with a highly ineffective and
anti-western United Nations general assembly lacking the will to refer this matter up to the security council its a wonder the Iranians feel empowered
to do as they will in respect to nuclear proliferation.
I don't by any means begrudge them power generation (questionable as the need seems) but to have the terror supporting mullacracy in control of
nuclear weapons is foolhardy on all the worlds part.
As the cold war ran down I had hopes that the risk of nuclear weapon use was reduced, now with third world political aspirations getting mixed up with
proliferation issues I see a time not far off that a city or many gets instantly obliterated due to these selfish policies. When the terrorists get
the bomb there will be no chance for deterence to work for it will not exist other than as a blind retaliation against percieved enemies. Any
moralistic tit for tat will die an ignoble death in the blind rage to follow.
