This is THE overriding threat issue of our time. Should Iran be allowed to build nuclear weapons, it will be a paradigm shift in the world's power balance. Future generations will ask, "How did they ever let it happen?" It will be comparable to allowing the Nazis to metastasize in Germany and violate multiple international treaties in the 1930s.

Obama is really screwing up this whole thing. His fascination with kissing everyone’s ass in the Middle East except Israel is going to end up getting a lot of people killed.

“it will be a paradigm shift in the world’s power balance”
How? Keeping in mind the way “power balance” is used implies that power is “balanced” now. Is it?
Who is Iran’s biggest long tern threat? Israel? NO. That’s geopolitical bluster (Iranian trying to win Muslim hearts and minds), because Iran knows that Israel is the one nation who won’t be afraid to retaliate with “everything”.
So, who, in the Middle East is really threatened by Iran, and why? And are they morally or “democratically” superior to Iran? Do they meddle less than Iran in the affairs of other Middle East nations, covertly or more recently openly?
