Iran and Nuclear Power / Weapons

Iran wishes to develop nuclear power.

It is a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Prolifiration Treaty which entitles it to develop nuclear power as long as it allows the IAEA to inspect its plants.

The USA and the West believes that Iran wishes to develop nuclear weapons so they object to any nuclear projects.

The only country in the region with nuclear weapons is Israel. It is not a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, so it is not inspected.
The USA has never raised the issue of WMD in Israel and seeks to avoid the subject at all costs.

Is this not another case of double standards and further angers the Arabs and Muslims around the world who see Israel allowed to do what it wants whilst the rest of the region has to get the go ahead fro mthe USA.

I have a sneaking feeling that Iran doesn't give a monkey's toss about present or future objections from the USA and the West
And since Iran can turn up or turn down the level of violence in Iraq as she sees fit, it appears for the moment that Iran has us by the goolies.

That president and most of the mullahs in that country need to be wiped off the map.

the whole point of nuclear weapons is that they act as a deterrent to any would be attacker. If you attack me I will nuke you :eekani:

It worked during the cold war.

If Israel was about ot be overrun in a conventional war will it reosrt to nuclear weapons knowing that its enemies did not have them

Maybe so but that region's been in turmoil for alot longer than GWB's been around. Arab hating arabs, shiites hating sunni's, arabs hating jews, etc...

It's got bigger problems than GWB brother.

We'll drop Tony Blair on Tehran. After he dribbles all over them agreeing with everything they say and demanding a cuddle they'll soon start screaming "enough! We'll abandon the nuclear programme, just get him off!"
There's always a solution
