    In yet another UNSC failure to place alongside Iraq, Darfur, North Korea, and a long list of others, Iran has decided to install 6000 more centrifuges at its underground Natanz nuke facility. Of course we all realize that the nuke lab is buried deep underground because it is dedicated to the peaceful development of nuclear power for electricity. We note that only benign radical terrorist nations with concern for the welfare of everyone have massive programs designed to enrich uranium to weapons grade.

    You need to overcome your obsession with Iran, in particular, and wake up to the fact that the NPT is dead and buried in the Middle East.

    Egypt and Syria are also actively developing nuclear programs.

    This will go down in History as the most underreported news in the beginning of the XXI century.

    Can anyone blame these nations for trying to develop nukes after the invasion and occupation of Iraq?

    If you don't want to see your country invaded, occupied and turned into killing fields you'd better point a few nuclear warheads at New York and Washington D.C.

    Yet another reason to kick the UN out of the US and save ourselves some money.

    I couldn't agree more re the thread title: UN... failure

    The UN's inability to guarantee the respect for the national sovereignty of countries with small/weak/poorly trained armies is a well known fact.

    UNFORTUNATELY FOR OUR PLANET AND SPECIES, only nukes can do the job.

    Yeah, I mean, it's got nothing to do with the fact that countries like the US would love to be able to conventionally blow it to smithereens or anything. Those brazen bastards!

    Even if they had nukes the only country they could reasonably hit would be Israel, maybe European targets. They'd need high powered missles to reach the US.

    Not to mention they'd need a lot of them too. We do have a limited missle defense shield. The only nations that can hit the USA are Russia and China. Russia won't/can't because half their missles don't work and because of our missle defense. They'd get the US good. China has too few to hurt the US. They'd have to expend their whole arsenal to get maybe one major city.

    Meanwhile the USA which has the largest strategic nuclear arsenal on the planet glasses the whole of Russia and China and has a few more left over to say "Who wants some?". There would even be enough gov't and infrastructure for the US to survive. China and Russia lack the applicable missle defense to effectively defend themselves.

    Or, they could load it into a container and detonate it in Long Beach harbor.

    One nuke in LA would cause more than enough damage

    One nuke anywhere in the United States would be enough.

    We have more than adequate defense against any nuclear weapon targeted against us from anywhere other than Russia. Our current ABM defense employing most the SM-1 can counter up to 100 MIRV'd ICBMs, maybe more. The only country on earth capable of launching an attack of that size is still Russia, and it is becoming increasingly doubtful that even they can still muster that size of an attack.

    What concerns us is the ability of Iran to take out oil facilities in Saudi Arabia and the other Persian Gulf states, using non-ballistic technologies.
