T O P I C R E V I E WBruce ShannonI'm a simple man with simple views. I have a major concern about the probablilty of nuclear weapons being developed in Iran. Isreal and the United States obviously are very afraid of what Iran could do if they were to irresponsibly detonate a nuclear weapon against Christians and Jews.If not forced to protect themselves there will be no attack on Iran, however if they think Iran is a threat it is well guaranteed (according to all statements by both Isreal and the US) that there will be a defensive attack destroying all things that involve Nuclear in Iran.Please do not think that Iran is a major world power capable of defending themselves. Iran could not defeat Iraq over the many years of war with them. Afganistan (Taliban leadership) defeated the Russians but was defeated in a few weeks by the US and others in a defensive action to lessen the threat of terrorist attacks like happened on 9-11. I personally believe that Iran could not defend against an attack to destroy nuclear sites.I am most curious about the probability of Iran and its citizens just being part of the world economy and having all the benifits of mutual cooperation with the rest of the world as opposed to the probability of a major blood bath that Iran could not hope to win. Is it pride? There is no pride in using a weapon, it only admits defeat in solving disputes in a mutually benificial way. Is it Iran thinks that they can win? Not even remotely possible, they are working on their first nuclear weapon and the US has been making nuclear weapons forover 60 years.Is Iran under threat from the US and Isreal? No, we want no war or conflict with Iran. We wish Iran to be a friend and to be prosperous. We are very cautious about zellots, extreamists, and religeous fanatics having the devistating power of nuclear weapons.The Islamic religeon, the Jewish religeon and the Christian religeon have the same roots, the same God, but different views on the return of God's son, Jesus, Muhammed, or not arrived yet.If I were faced with the probability of the massive destructive power of Nuclear War or learning to cooperate and not be a threat to other nations and live in peace and harmony I know what I would choose. I pray that Iranians feel the same and do not cause their destruction. Iran cannot have any hope of being a Nuclear Power and still survive. The rest of the world has no problem with what Iran does if not a major threat to humanity.Please help me to understand what Iran wants to accomplish.Thank you for your attention.
