Iran is the center of terrorism, fundamentalism and subversion and is in my view more dangerous than Nazism, because Hitler did not possess a nuclear bomb, whereas the Iranians are trying to perfect a nuclear option. Its time to get the issue straight, the people who hate America are only going to accept the answer they want to hear. That answer is 'its because America is a mean bully who wants to own the world. Wrong, America acknowledges that the weapons existence and use are extremely dangerous to the worlds stability. We already have nukes, but the more nations that get them, the more chance that someone will use them. America, along with many other countries, signed a treaty to limit the spread of these weapons. Has America played favoritism in its deterrent? Certainly, but not without reason. As any country, America must protect its country, as Iran is trying to do. I understand they want it as a deterrent, just as all countries do. So what is the difference between Iran and these countries? Islam. Why should America not fear a country with Islamic rule? They are not afraid to die. They openly admit to the desire to obliterate a country (no matter the reasons behind it). Their guiding book, the koran, which has influence over every part of irans government says the following "Slay them wherever you find them. Idolatry is worse than carnage. Fight against them until idolatry is no more and God's religion reigns supreme." (Surah 2:190-) "Fighting is obligatory for you, much as you dislike it." (Surah 2:216) "Believers, make war on the infidels who dwell around you. Deal firmly with them." (Surah 9:121-) "If you should die or be slain in the cause of God, His forgiveness and His mercy would surely be better than all the riches." (Surah 3:156-) These are just a few I picked from many many similar quotes. So is America crazy for doing everything in their power to keeping nukes out of Iran, and any other non democratic, Islamic nations? Not in the slightest Iran has been waging an undeclared but deadly war against the West for decades. Funding and arming terrorist groups in any country that will shelter them. The majority of IEDs in Iraq are from Iran, they support the opposition with money and weapons. This is not a country that we can reach an accord, an understanding with that would allow us to "get along" without conflict. It is not just the leaders, a large segment of their population has been taught to hate and revile Western culture, achievement and faith. We are only putting off the inevitable and by doing so we endanger not only Israel but ourselves. Any one who believes Iran's nuclear ambitions are peaceful is as naive, gullible and frankly stupid as Chamberlain when he proclaimed 'peace in out time'. When will people learn arguably the most important lesson from history, that appeasement never works and only makes the situation worse. We cannot afford to repeat the mistakes of the past.
