And it would have to detonate and that is easier said than done. What are you really afraid of ? Plenty of folks could have had a suitcase bomb by now and were stopped and we would never know about it . This is all theater for the masses , the reality is the West and East are fighting over the resources in Iran , Afghanistan , Iraq ..... What do average Americans get in return ? Debt , cheap clothes and crap made overseas , the freedom to be gay and get a sex change but not the freedom to live in peace and work for an honest days wages. There will be a showdown one way or another .
Well, that's the longest non-answer ever, I think... You are either willing to accept a nuclear-armed Iran or you are not. If you are not, the question is what you would support to prevent them from becoming so?
I don't know that Iran doesn't already have a physics package, but I think it's highly unlikely they do already (for a number of reasons).
As to not being a nuclear threat, you don't know that. The fact is that they aren't a nuclear threat if they are preventing from acquiring them in the first place. I think an even greater worry is that if Iran becomes a nuclear power, the Kingdom won't be far behind. I'd prefer to not see a nuclear arms race in the ME.
