"When Barack Obama was elected, they had enough fissile material, nuclear material, to make one bomb. Now they have enough to make five," Ryan said. "They're racing toward a nuclear weapon. They're four years closer toward a nuclear weapons capability."

As illustrated by Netanyahu with his Wile E.Coyote cartoon of the ACME bomb company cannonball with a fuse.

It wouldn't make sense for Iran to be striving to have only one bomb. They'd need one to test and show the world. They've already tested the new missile technology that went from Clinton to North Korea to Iran. Do dumbass Democrats actually believe China isn't meddling in the Middle East? Peaceniks would put us back to the 1920s, where the Kellogg Briand pact led the world to war, where the real threats to peace told you what they were doing ten and fifteen years before they really got going. Peaceniks in the twenties and thirties had their heads in the sand just as today. Biden panders to cowards, just as the secretive pro-Germany crowd used media to guide anti-war opinion prior to WWII.

What keeps Iran from ordering a "container" that Joe Biden says they don't have from their North Korean freinds?

So what if Iran has bomb.
Israel and all our allies have a middle defense system.
Let Iran build their mythical bomb. What are they going to do with it?
Is it even possible they could launch one without retaliation? No
Is it likely a missile from Iran would reach Isreal without being intercepted?
No it is not likely.
The only people who should fear an Iranian bomb is Iranians.
If they have one and launch it, the retaliation would be devastating, and we would likely not even have to retaliate ourselves. Isreal has more then enough firepower to handle Iran if they build a bomb, launch one, test one, whatever. There is no way they get away with it.

That's how the nuclear deterant works.
Let's concentrate on something productive like denying climate change

It would be suicide for Iran to launch a nuke. However, other nations will think twice before interfering with their internal affairs. And whether true or not, I don't believe in global warming. To many lies from elitists taking our money and they themselves live high off the hog.

The real problem with any of these radicals getting a bomb is that the borders to the USA are wide open......

It is very easy for them to get the bomb here and then just drive across the border.....

Heck we had a Gadaffi for a neighbor here not to long ago..........

Again the the mythical Iraian "suitcase nuke" is not possible. I know on TV nuclear weapons are small, but in reality they are not.
Our borders were wide open for WW11 and no one came across with a nuke to destroy TX. and last I checked IRan was pretty far from the US border. It is not possible for Iran to ship a nuke here, and then walk it across the border.
Paranoia not based on truth but based on hype.
relax.

I can understand being skeptical of human caused climate change, but do you believe the climate will stay the same forever?
