It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it. -Aristotle
Also, it's should HAVE. NOT "should of". "Should of" doesn't even make sense. If you think you should own a cat, do you say "I should of a cat" or "I should have a cat"? Do you HAVE cats, or do you OF cats?

And I'm pretty sure the Arab nations in the area don't want Iran getting their hands on nuclear weapons, since that would mean a huge shift in the balance of power.
Here's the thing.
You don't give a gun to a kid.
You don't give nuclear weapons to adults with kid minds and Amachadimidodo (whatever his name is spelled) certainly has a very tiny and barbaric mind. Seriously, just take that bastard out with a sniper, no need for invasion.
Sitting in ireland i feel like a spectator at a after school playground fight when iran is meantioned .Iran is like the schools oppressed bullied kid in their governments eyes..notice how i said government not the people of irans eyes. where the usa is the bully .
Yet iran at present is ignored for the most part because the world in general jsut cant give a rats arse anymore .Suddenly iran gets a nuke its like the same playground bullied kid bringing a shotgun too school and sitting there going try it now .Yes the usa has more nukes but the usa wont be the one to react first israel or even one of the other countries in that region will its exceptionally volatile at the moment .and iran in general is playing a very dangerous game it wants to be the next big thing the big brother of the arab world so too speak yet with so much volatile natures and political veiws in the region its like dowsing yourself in petrol and running into a fire hoping not to burn up.
Actually Iranian and American politics have much in common: Both have figurehead-politicians with little room to maneuver, due to political and religious restrictions. Both are fiercely nationalist.
Ahmadinejad's denial of the Holocaust is as ridiculous as the anticipation among American right wingers that Israel will bring forth the Messiah.
Is Iran a threat? No. Is Iran a potential threat? Yes, just like every country with nuclear armaments, including the US, Russia, China, Israel, Pakistan, France...and so on and so forth.
Any country ran by a religious order is a threat.

They just want to seem important by making big statements. They want to matter in international politics.
Also, I once read that Ahmadinejad is actually not the overzealous nut that he is often portrayed as. He's actually more moderate than the people surrounding him.
He just makes those big statements to keep the zealous people happy. It's pretty much about calming internal politics. I don't know if it's true, but it does sound possible.
war is the true economy of USA

Agreed. They are not a threat and only the warhawk idiots in my country think they are. Iran is not stupid. They know if they so much as touch Israel, the rest of the world will press down on them and hard.
Iran might posture and threaten, but they won't actually do anything.
