Are you afraid of your lives due to the nuclear bombs test Iran has been carrying out lately?
I mean like for instance do you think their leader might become rogue and test it on your country?
They alternatively threaten to wipe out Israel, Iraq/ISIS and the United States. But due to logistics, Israel is more likely.
Another matter is the Sunni-Shia fighting that started almost immediately after Mohamed's death. Iran sees itself as the Shia power, as it is the only Shia majority nation, while Saudi Arabia is the Sunni hub only because of Mecca and Medina.
Saudi Arabia has nuclear weapons on order with Pakistan to be delivered the moment Iran is officially nuclear. So we do run the risk of a World War 3 with Saudi Arabia and Iran nuking each other as the latest version of their 1400 year religious feud.
I think it plausible that they would allow some faction or 'terrorist group' get ahold of a dirty bomb to deploy against the 'infidels'.
You have to keep in mind how Iran operates, they do not send out an army, they will not fire a rocket into Israel or American... why would they do that, when they can provide the means for some group unattached to them to do their work for them?
The Iranians want to rid the world of Israel, yet they do not start a war against them to accomplish this, they fund the Hamas, the PLO, and anyone else that pursues that end.
This is how Iran fights the war, with religious fanatics and power hungry psychopaths that want to destroy the Western civilization- Israel, America, Britain, and Europe.
Weaken them from within, destroy their cultures, their society, their beliefs... until you can destroy them from without, or take them over from within.
Its a war they will win, because it is a war we are unable or unwilling to recognize and address with the needed determination and force.
Interesting how you say they want to destroy Israel, America, Britain, and Europe but none of them have been touched by the psychopaths yet. Instead they are killing their own. lol, nice plan ey. Could it be coz america funds isis? lets wait and see
That's not going to happen. everyone is arming themselves just to prove they are up to a certain level in technological advancement. Its more of a silent political statement, saying i have one too. quite similar to the average person saying i have the iPhone 7 now.
They join the "imaginary" club of power and that's it.
I'm not afraid. Nuclear bombs are very large, very complicated, very expensive and they require a delivery system (they don't fit into trunks or suitcases). Maybe one day Iran will have a nuclear weapon and maybe they won't. We have about 10,000 nuclear weapons ready to strike anywhere anytime. We're safe.

What a bold move...Reaganesque in my opinion.Long overdue. We need to apply sanctions to Iran to force them to comply.The Obama legacy is being torn down piece by piece.

With Irans new revelations that they have a secret site for the nuclear capabilities is this the latest step in the path to a nuclear war?

How serious and immediate is a nuclear threat from Iran? What should we do about it? Some of the same hawks who helped talk us into invading Iraq are coming out of the woodwork and saying that a nuclear Iran is intolerable and something must be done to prevent it from happening. A timely and...

What is your opinion of "The Iran Deal"?To my view "The Iran Deal" is nothing short of "Kicking the can down the road, with an uphill road facing Israel and the USA" when the "deal" expires. Meantime, Iran builds the military technology and armaments,...

The Sunday NY Times Magazine cover story this week reports on the current state of the standoff between Iran, Israel, the US and other countries over Iran's nuclear facilities and intentions. It's a very frightening article because it says that an attack by Israel on Iran may be imminent and could...

Many news outlets, like CNN, have posted that Leon Panetta is now suggesting Isreal will attack Iran in the spring. Is this a good idea? Should America get involved?
