Iran is not anyone's problem except for Israel. Certainly, Iran is never going to attack Russia, China, Europe, the US, or anyone else, and so no one else views this as a big threat.

Only Israel and Israel-firsters in the US are making a big deal about Iranian nukes, just because it will end Israel's ability to blackmail its neighbors into submission.

Iranian nuclear parity with Israel is a GOOD thing because it will force Israel to make peace with all of its neighbors on terms that are fair considering there's only 5 million Jewish Israelis compared to 250 million Arabs in the region.
