Should the World allow Iran to develop and mass produce nuclear weapons?
After Ahmedinejad's speech today at the UN declaring that 9/11 was an inside job and his previous speeches declaring his intention to wipe Israel off the map and claiming the holocaust never happened - should the World do nothing and allow a regime led by such a man to deveop nuclear weapons and the means of delivery ?

Don't worry, if it goes too far the Israeli's will take care of it.

Iran should not be allowed to develop nukes, but Israel should be made to get rid of all it's illegal nukes.The middle east would then be a bit safer.

Do you think that just for once the UK can stay out of it? We are BROKE - no money! Broken society too! I'm seriously beginning to wonder if a bit of good old fashioned middle eastern law and order might sort out a few problems here as we seem to have lost sight of British justice in appeasing the PC brigade!

Iran wants to toot it's horn as a nuclear power and the president of Iran is a weirdo who would not think twice about causing destruction and war.

Sarah Palin said she would nuke Russia she is even more of a nutcase than him at least and that was an incorrect translation that had him saying he would wipe israel off the map. and he don't think Freaking dino's were running around four thousand years ago which to me makes him at least a few degrees more intelligent...

yea its not like they are crazy or anything is it allowing Iran nuclear weapons would be like giving retarded kids fireworks to play with
Answered By: Poppy - 9/23/2010
Yes but just to be fair it kinda looks hypocrtical for us to have a hella lot of nukes as well
Answered By: The Chosen One - 9/23/2010
A'ma'jad also said that "the future belongs to Iran". But no, no one will do anything. Our president is still on the apology kick for the USA being the USA. He'd never get a spine. This is what happened in the 1930s when Germany was building the most modern military in history. Everyone watched and no one acted.

I can't even believe they allow that jerk in our country. But just what do you suggest we do? They use one threat after another and I think people are just abiding time to see what actions are taken on their part.

Obviously not, but the world is and continues to believe the Iran government lies that they are developing nuclear energy for "peaceful" purposes.

Can we really stop him short of war? Do we want to fight that war? Will other nations surrender their weapons of mass destruction too or do we all continue to live with the fiction that some can be trusted with them and others cannot?
Answered By: Tolerant b - 9/23/2010
Not really. But then I think any country who is trying to develop or already has nuclear weapons should have sanctions imposed on it. No trade at all internationally with the intent of getting rid of all nuclear weapons. That goes for US, Russia, China, UK, France, Pakistan, India etc. Do that and all the non-... More

i'm guessing they are very close right now, how long does anyone think they will wait? my guess is they will launch as soon as they get rockets with the capability to reach america. they are very close to completing the warheads so the 2012 prophecy is looking spot on to me atm.
