Is Iran trying to build a nuclear bomb?
Much assumed in American politics these days is that Iran is actively trying to build a nuclear bomb. So far I have seen little credible evidence for such. Especially after all the lies of the Bush Admin, their complicity in 9/11, and poor handling of everything besides killing people, I'm much more inclined to trust the Iranian government than its American counterpart.
If I were the President of the United States, I would not aggresively pursue sanctions against Iran. The reason being, that it sets a terrible example to the whole World. What they should be doing them is discouraging them publicly from building a bomb, and then putting economic sanctions on them if they break the non-proliferation treaty. The pressure on them now is just encouraging the Iranians to build a bomb as quickly as possible, as a deterrent for invasion.
