The truth of the matter is that only one country has ever used a nuclear weapon against another country.
It just all seems a bit hypocritical for America to pick and choose who can or can't have nuclear energy/weapons. Pakistan? Sure, why not? North Korea? Sure, why not? Iran? HELL NO!
Pakistan is responsible for the deaths of hundreds, if not thousands, of our soldiers fighting in Afghanistan, but we're not bombing them. North Korea threatens us with annihilation on a daily basis, but we're not bombing them. Iran hasn't done a damn thing to us other than have some students take over the American Embassy in 1979. It's been 36 years. It's time for us to get over it.
If, and this is a big if, Iran does decide to build a nuclear weapon then what does anyone honestly think will happen? They aren't stupid and they know that they would risk total annihilation if they were dumb enough to use it. So if they ever decided to build the bomb it would be for leverage and not because they were actually intent on using one.
It's time for us to pull up our big boy pants and accept that Iran already has a nuclear program. No amount of bombs and missiles will take that away because they will just build it back up again after the bombings stop. And if we were stupid enough to bomb them then we sure as hell better be ready for a regional, and possibly world, war that would kill hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people. Would all those deaths be worth it just to set their nuclear program back a few years and guarantee that they actually will develop a bomb?
So the real question is whether or not America will fall into the trap that Benjamin Netanyahu is trying to set up for us. We should not be used as his pawns who will bomb any country he tells us to. We should use our unique position of being a superpower to solve things peacefully for once.
