Sand Posted February 24, 2007 Share Posted February 24, 2007 Iran is still defiant of the UN and the west claiming that the Western nationss are trying to bully them in being a weak power. Iran is so adamant to have nuclear energy that internal rivals have joined together in this. Iran's leadership believes that the only way for it to be considered a first world power is to have nuclear energy, may it be for peaceful means in the form of power plants, or what the Bush Administration believes, for nuclear missiles. Now, many western nations have set up to give Iran aid packages to tempt them and sanctions to punish them from becoming a nuclear power. Iran scoffs at both and remains focused on seeking to become the next nation to have nuclear energy. Given that its rivals, such as the US and Israel, have nuclear power and a nuclear arsenal I think that Iran has the right to be worried. In recent years the US has been very aggressive and seen as an invader. Iran should have the ability to protect itself from any and all aggression, while it is seen as a terrorist state and feared to given weapons and support to terrorist groups. Understandably so that Israel, the US, and its allies would not want to see Iran give a nuclear weapon to these terrorists. Does Iran have the right to protect itself by whatever means and by whatever technologies it has available to it? Does Iran have the right to pursue nuclear power in order to be equal in strength and power to those who threaten its borders? If so, do they have the right to do a pre-emptive strike like the US did with Iraq? Interesting times indeed.
