No to nuclear armed Iran

Reader comment on item: Israeli Jets vs. Iranian Nukes

Submitted by Pritam (United States), Jun 28, 2008 at 02:57

Iran, if allowed to build nuclear weapons, will not only threaten Israel but can blackmail already neutral Europe. So the US government should put strong pressure on Iran.

Russia should be asked to give up its petty support for Iran's bomb program. Iranians can build ICBMs too with these kind of technology in the black market aka Abdul Qader Khan episode. So Europe too should never accept Iranian nuclear bomb.

If it is genuinely a power project, which seems very unlikely, it should be fully open to IAEA and other international inspectors. Iran does not have the rationale to seek nuclear parity with Israel. Iranian leaders are digging their own graves with their quest for weapons for armageddon.
