    Interesting moral problem. Iran is a sovereign nation who has done nothing to harm the US. They even sell us their oil at market price.

    To be honest, I have often contemplated the following irony:

    America is second only to Russia in terms of the possession of weapons of mass destruction (nukes, poison gases, bio-weapons, etc).

    America created (both fission and fussion) and is the first and only nation to use a nuclear device to massively kill non-military men, women and children (Nagasaki, Hiroshima).

    Yet we tell Iran (and others) DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!

    For the record, I believe the atomic bombing of Japan was necessary to demoralize Hirohito and their general population.

    Nonetheless, there is an irony there IMO.

    This is false. Iran has supplied terrorists, weapons and money into Iraq that has killed American troops.
