#1 Iran has received much criticism over the years for its alleged support + propagation of International terror - IMO its fair to say that Iran recognizes it will again be heavily criticized, iff not attacked, iff Radical Islam's Hard/Burqua Boyz go de facto Nuke-WMD, hence its hallowed "JAPAN/EGYPT" NUCLEAR MODEL.
Iran does desire to ultimately be the world's first ISLAMIC/MUSLIM GLOBAL NUCLEAR SUPERPOWER, for which possession of NucWeaps by Iran will be required - however, Iran also does NOT desire to be attacked while its NucProg + future Nuclear Arsenal is still budding, hence again its reliance for time being on NUKE-ARMED PAKISTAN, REGIONAL + TRANS-REGIONAL PRO-ISLAMIST, PRO- NUCLEAR "ARAB SPRINGS", + ANTI-US NATIONS to deter or defend from outside attack until Iran is ready.
Lest we fergit, as the US + Western World
"steadily decline", IRAN + MUSLIM WORLD + CHINA ASCEND.
Yes, Iran is being quite rational, but NOT because it is interested in peace or the status quo or "post-US" Empire.

#2 Most people are essentially cowards. There is nobody in the EUroweeny who isn't. The UN is worthless. They always were.
The US is led by a man who wouldn't fight for his own mother. ( but have you seen his mother? I wouldn't fight for that either). So what does that leave us?
Israel can't carry the fight alone. Its too big a risk to start a war with no backing except guys wearing yellow suits and pink ties.
The US no longer has balls and the days of the Big Johnson are as dead as Johnson himself. Its all Bush's fault and Katrina too.
Gay marriage and legalized Pot are what we got. Ain't it Hot?
Iran is going to get the bomb, then they will get cruise missiles. And then they will tell you what's what ,and slap you in the snot.
And you will bend over because that is what most of you are. Have a good day, Dwayne.
