What do you think of Iran getting nukes?
How do you guys feel if Iran were to get nukes? Do you think they pose any kind of threat to anyone? Do you think they would actually USE the nukes if they got them?
I know one of the media drums is about them wanting to blow Israel off the face of the earth, do you think this is true? Would they straight out attack Israel if they were to get nukes?
I personally see Iran as a pretty legit country, I can't imagine any scenario, outside of them being physically attacked by another POWERFUL military (not something like ISIS or Iraq), in which they would actually use nukes. I think they have way too much to lose to even threaten any kind of offensive attack with nukes.
I also think the whole Israel thing is blown out of proportion. They do not support the Israeli gov't, this is no secret. 90% of the world doesn't. However, I don't think that somehow means they want to nuke the country. I think they would rather a regime change there, and I don't think its an extreme view to have, we have the very same view on Iran, doesn't mean we're nuking them.
It also brings up an important point about countries being able to protect themselves. I think that while generally speaking the less countries that have nukes, the better it is for mankind as a whole, the fact is that there are countries which already have MASSIVE stockpiles of nukes, and its quite understandable why other countries would want to be able to want some type of weaponry they feel could protect themselves.
I know there is also another pov about them possibly falling into the wrong hands, but if Pakistan can have nukes and not have them fall into the wrong hands, I don't see how that could be of any concern regarding Iran. Clearly they are a top level security priority.
opinions? What is in the best for the US? What is in the best interest for Iran? What is in the best interest for the countries surrounding Iran?
*oh, one more question too. If Iran DID create a nuclear weapon, or on the brink of it, do you think this would be reasonable to start conducting preemptive military attacks?
