What is the difference of Iran having a nuclear weapon than Israel, United States or India?
Iran wants to wipe Israel off the face of the earth. They would also like to attack America. India is a democracy along with America and I believe Israel. The leader of Iran is, in my opinion, a madman bent on dominating the middle east through oppression using weapons of mass distruction. Their leader denies the Holocaust took place. One reason for this absurd view is he views Israel as subhuman and is not willing to admit they have rights just like every other human being. If Iran gets a nuclear weapon, there will be a nuclear war in the Middle East and potentially in America.
Iran doesn't have a nuclear weapons program. The IAEA has never said that it has. Every US joint intelligence assessment issued (by 14 different US intelligence agencies) since the year 2000 has stated that Iran doesn't have a nuclear weapons program.
What Iran does have is the world's second largest oil deposits after Saudi Arabia. Iran's oil is also classified as 'light-sweet': which means it doesn't take much refining to turn it into petrol making the whole process much cheaper. You should also bear in mind that none of Iran's oil is being extracted by the likes of BP: who were first kicked out of Iran in 1953, or Chevron,Exxon and Shell who were all kicked out of Iran in 1979 along with BP for the second time.
Iran also possesses the world's second largest natural gas deposits after Russia.
Strangely, Iran's hydro-carbon deposits are never mentioned with reference to the possibility of an attack by Israel or the western powers. But surely, only a fool that believes what he, or she, hears on Fox News would be deceived by such a blatantly dishonest omission.
Another thing to bear in mind here is that Iran has never borrowed money from the IMF or World Bank, so it has never succumbed to: or allowed its citizens to be ensnared by, the 'enslavement-through-debt' scams perpetrated on national economies by the private banking cartels.
Those that have posted here should at least check the facts before the war on Iran starts. They could, for instance, research the history of 'SAVAK". SAVAK was arguably the worst secret police service that has ever existed. It was set up by Britain's MI6, the American CIA and MOSSAD in the mid 1950s under the Shah of Iran. SAVAK was responsible for the deaths and torture of thousands of people. Some of the survivors of those dark days are still alive. Why should they trust the West or Israel?
People really do need to learn to recognize blatantly dishonest propaganda when it is presented to them. Otherwise, when they see all those body bags and coffins being repatriated to their country of origin, they're not going to have a clue about what is really going on.
It 's time to wise-up folks.
Iran wants to annihilate the United States and Israel, whereas none of the other countries have similar intentions or motivations.
