Nuclear Iran, eventually....

Informed Comment rips into all the headlines touting how Iran is going nulcear. stating that the 164 centrifuges they claim to have are maybe 1% of the 16,000 or so that would be a minimum to build a nuclear bomb. Now admittedly Iran has said that they plan to purchace as many as 50,000 of them but have not said when. There is also the possiblity that they just want to use them for the nuclear reactors they are building. Currently I am far more afraid of the US nuking Iran than the other way around. I can think of nothing that would radicalize the Arab world more than to use nukes, even tactical nukes, as a response to an Arab nation attempting to build a powerplant. Currently our nation grows weaker both militarily and economincly every day. We took on a very weak army and have barely kept it out of anarchy, this has not proved our military power. Its like Andre the Giant fighting Vern Troyer and having Andre win on points while bleeding profusely. Sure we won, but no one was impressed. If we go to war with Iran then I think im going to swing either to the total revolutionary side, or else pack my bags and get the fuck out of this backwards fundamentalist leaning cuntry.
