I'd like to hear your opinions on the entire issue.Originally Posted by CNN Headlines
I agree with Iraq on this matter actually. Who cares what Tehran is trying to do with nuclear? They mention that they want to use it as an alternative energy and so on, NOTHING to do with nuclear weapon. Yes, they can lie about it. However, they can also be telling the truth. Why not we give them the benefit of doubt? Even if it turns out to be nuclear weapon like Kim Jong Il, US shouldn't feel threatened as well. Afterall, no country can win one-on-one against US. I'm pretty sure of that. So why care? Also, restricting them from developing nuclear energy wont bring anything positive as well.
1. They have a few hundred thousands of suicide bombers around the world willing to bomb any entities that is precious to US. They can do a lot of damages without US being able to strike back. Have we forgotten about 911? We sure dont want that kind of thing to happen again, do we?
2. They can easily control Strait of Hormus, Persian Gulf and Gulf of Oman. Those are some strategic places for shippings and tradings. They might just be able to paralyse the whole trading industry around that area. Not a smart move from US if they still insist on stopping Iran from developing it nuclear technology.
3. If they really go into a war, who will win? Will US win or will Iran win? My prediction, it's a lose-lose situation. US is lacking armies in their homeland. Many of them are servicing outside US. In fact, during the war with Iraq back in 2003, 2004, and 2005 , US even rewarded his armies with USD 500 for every soldier recruited.
Conclusion, dont go for war. Leave Iran as it is now. Maybe they never even thought of developing nuclear weapon. US's warning and so on might just set that trigger away. Let it be and time will tell.
Interesting that Iraq's foreign minister is defending Iran, considering their war with Iran was pretty much what left Iraq in such a desperate situation. Must be trying to make amends for the past.
