#1 Rafsanjani has been around since the very first days of Khomeini (Jan-1979) He & the brutal mullah's time is past.

#2 Just a random thought here.
The following scenrio... US invades Iran after Iran declares self nuke power. Iran pops 2-3 in effort to stop US forces. Higher US casualties (500-2000) than Iraq. End result is the same. US wins with conventional forces only, then captures, tries and executes all involved with nuke use decision.

Now picture the scene in Moscow/beijing... Uh oh, the nukes didnot stop the Americans, Now what? (And they executed the leaders afterwards! they never did that before. eep.)

In norkland...Uh oh, it seems the nukes did not stop the Americans. now what?

Rest of Planet... Uh oh, etc.

#4 Isn't Japan in some sort of Nuclear Club?
Would the Iranians like to join that one too?

#5 I confess to being very worried about this whole thing, but I do love the name "Expediency Council." At least they're open about it.
