Is Iran a Nuclear Threat or just a whole lot of hype?


If the United States goes to war against Iran, will it be because they really do have nuclear weapons and want to use them?

Or will it just be a lot of hype, the result of nationalistic sabre rattling on
Iran's part?

It is difficult to say.

Iran's Ayatolla (who has the real power) says Iran's nuclear program is peaceful and for electricity only. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad however seems to keep musing about the idea of bombing Israel with nuclear missiles.

Iran has even gone so far as to purchase missile materials and missile building information from China back in 2006.

If such a war did come to pass it would give America approx. another $6 trillion in debt, and since
Iran is larger than Iraq and Afghanistan put together it would not be a very easy war to win.

Heck, we can't even win those wars. Oh sure, we can bomb the hell out of them in the beginning, replace their leaders and all that, but the ground war and the public relations war is far from over. It will take another 10 or 20 years for Iraq and Afghanistan to make some progress. Do we really want to add
Iran to our list of obligations?
