Given (a) Israel's belligerence and (b) how the US deals with nuclear and non-nuclear powers, I'm not surprised Iran wants the bomb. Wouldn't you?

And if it does, then so what? Iran wants to lead world Islam. Imagine for a moment that as Israel alleges Ahmedinnejad is a homicidal maniac and uses his first bomb on Tel Aviv. What do you suppose Israel's response would be? Correct - the nuclear reduction of Iran to a radioactive slag heap.

Iran could not use nuclear weapons on Israel without being utterly destroyed. If it is building the bomb its a defensive measure. If on the other hand we find nuclear weapons offensive and want to disarm the region, its difficult to pursue such a policy with Israel full of nukes and American nukes at Israel's command.
