    What right do we have to deny a genocidal regime a neuclear weapon, for that matter what right did we have to stop Hiltler and his SOVEREIGN nation. But i do agree these are acts of war, now lets get serious about it, they what nukes so bad , then we should give them to them.

    WE/THEY are commiting acts of TERRORISM on IRAN ....... The news is NOT asking questions the HARD questions as to what were doing to another SOVEREIGN nation. WE are the Terrorist, We hire others to disrupt, bomb and generally cause disruptions in another country. Fly overs, denying goods and services, disrupting banking systems are ALL ACTS OF WAR! We are the EVIL, shame on the US.
