    Do sod all.

    Iran has no nuclear weapons and can't get them for many years anyway.
    That's not to say Iran isn't dangerous while that bunch of bloody idiots is in charge but a war is unlikely.
    They depend on China and India for pretty much everything and China depends on Iranian oil.
    China owns 70% of Iranian oil reserves under the 2004 deal.
    China will hold them back.

    Fat chance of them starting a war but if the oil supply to China is under threat, the US may just find itself starting a real war with burning US cities.

    It would be a very foolish move.

    The US does not need to get itself involved in a third war in less than 10 years. Iran is not a threat, so for the time being, leave them alone.

    We need to attack!
    We should kill them with kindness!
    We should seduce them with our superiority!
    We should invite thousands of their students to American universities free!
    We should send thousands of students there free.
    We should increase all cultural contacts to the maximum.
    We should share our philosophy, concepts and principles by every means.
    In other words, all-out war!

    The time to do something about Iran has passed. It was in 2009 when obama dithered it out.

    The sanctions are having an effect. The entire country is mobilized to develop and build enough nuclear bombs to destroy Israel and the US as the way to end the sanctions.

    Hang on.
    If the time to attack has passed, does that mean such an attack was wrong on the grounds that there are still no weapons so any such attack would have done nothing?

    Now to the issue of nuclear systems of any kind.
    The Iranian nuclear power industry started in 1950 when the US installed the first equipment into the country.

    2003 IAEA saw no evidence of any nuclear weapons activity.

    2005 - US team found nothing

    2007 - IAEA - found nothing

    2008 IAEA - found nothing

    2009 IAEA - low grade uranium suitable for power but not useful for weapons

    2010 - IAEA - Iran has 20% enriched uranium that could be further enriched

    May 2012 - still nothing that could be used in weapons.

    Mow to the negative.
    If Iran managed to develop weapons - how would it deliver such to the US for an attack?

    Given that Iran has zero chance of an attack on the US, why should the US attack it?

    That is an incredibly Naive way to look at it. Who says they have to launch a Nuke on a Missile to Attack the US? They Could simply ship a bomb to our Shores, they could give one to Terrorist, and they of course could attack countries as far away as SE Europe with Nukes on Medium Range Missiles.

    Not to mention the fact that they will be able to use there sheer threat of using them to Dominate the Region, as well as setting off a Race among their Neighbors to keep up. Next Saudi and will want them.

    So silly and Naive to pretend that it does not matter because they can't reach us with a ICBM lol, and extremely Naive as well to Cite the UN finding nothing as Proof there is nothing.

    You don't Raise a Facility to the ground and remove 6' of top soil before you let it be inspected because you have nothing to hide. You don't Research Nuclear Triggers for Power Applications, You do not need the Number of Centrifuges they are employing for Civilian Power Applications.

    anyone who does not believe Iran is actively attempting to Build Nukes is Extremely Ignorant. IMO.

    Sorry gotta tell it like I see it.
