The fear in the heart of the West.

Reader comment on item: Deterring Tehran

Submitted by f.shakki (United States), May 9, 2006 at 22:35

The West and America have become fearful of Islamic world; despite Islamic world has no fear at all from the whole world.
The West and America are insulted, attacked, defied on their interest and their citizens are killed by Islamic world, mean time the West and America are very careful of how they deal with the Moslems.
Why America is making nuclear weapons? Just for storage?
What if the Moslems kept their oil and do not sell it to the West? They will drink it?
Your assumptions in your article are based on fear imbedded in your heart for a long time.
These assumptions are not for a leader. I do not think President Bush will do anything to Iran, because he has the same fear as you have.
You say Iran is divided on it self for the fear of nuclear attack,you are dreaming. All of Iran and the whole Islamic world are very eager to have the atomic bomb.
It already happened in Pakistan, and nuclear weapons started to spread and America is watching, doing nothing.
