    I am more concerned about whether they are developing nuclear weapons than whether they are "tanking." How about you?

    Iran would likely not use a nuclear weapon to block the oil shipping straits. Even other concerned navies have eradication capability.

    Iran would likely not use a nuclear weapon to blow up Israel. There are Moslems there, and Palestinians. Even other concerned navies have eradication capability.

    Iran might do a nuclear demonstration. The recent rockets did not explode on take-off, for example. To do so, then it would likely have to alert all kinds of nations, and regulatory international agencies. The test itself could easily be misconstrued. The whole planet would instantly be engaged. Sunni Moslems would be instantly engaged.

    So among the least of the planet's concerns is a nuclear capability in Iran. Nations are gobbling up what fuel the planet has left--insofar as concerns the oil. The nations gutted of their reserves need some recourse for their future.
