So, seeing as there are currently no threads talking discussing this, I decided to make one about Iran, and its nuclear program. Now you here Republicans every day talking about, "Herp derp, Iran and uranium, therefore, bombs". And what they say could happen, I won't deny it, with Iran making a nuclear missile/bomb and then dropping said missile/bomb. And how it is oh so bad, and we must attack Iran, because they will obviously attack the West. Well I am tired of listening to this BS. First of all, we have no evidence what so ever to prove that Iran is actually going to use uranium for military purposes. There is the option of using it for scientific purposes, or medical purposes, or for it to just be there. And even if they are attempting to make a nuclear weapon, does that really mean we should go to war with them? Like I said, this is all mere suspicion. No concrete evidence has been shown to prove that the Iranians are making a nuclear bomb. It reminds me of this place we once went to war with. You may have heard of it. It was called Iraq. We had suspicions that they were making weapons of mass destruction there. And were they? No, they weren't. Secondly, if we attack Iran for making a nuclear weapon, then doesn't that mean we should attack Pakistan? Or North Korea? Or China? Or Russia? Or tens of other countries that don't share the same views as us, that have nuclear weapons. And even if they have a nuclear weapon, it still doesn't mean we should invade. The Soviet Union had nuclear weapons when we were in a cold war throughout the 50's, 60's, 70's and early 80's. But that didn't mean we went to war. And we should also look at the reasons for Iran getting a nuclear weapon as well. It is surrounded by countries like India, Pakistan, China and Israel. All of them have nuclear weapons. And Iran is the one without nuclear weapons. I am not surprised they would want them. Finally, and most importantly, just because they have nuclear weapons, does not mean they are going to launch one. Iran has a sane leader. He wouldn't risk his country being blown to bits just to launch one nuclear missile. That is retarded. So yeah, discuss.
