From the time the nuclear facilities were discovered, until now, it's been, "We have no interest in developing nuclear weapons."

Now, it's, "Well, maybe we'll develop them, if the pressure keeps up."

Sometimes, I really need to pinch myself to wonder if any of this is real. It's beyond ridiculous.

With all their money, I think they already bought a few nukes and want to finally make their own anyway.

So does those Iran threatens with it's radical theocracy start one of those elongated useless partial wars with Iran where we only go after military targets or do those threatened take this serious and kick some @ss before it is beyond possible?

If it gets to beyond possible, we will have to have a bigger world war IMO. One that kills more of the good guy's soldiers...
