a BIG question

U.S. Agencies See No Move by Iran to Build a Bomb is in this morning’s New York Times and provides the other side of the whole matter. The column brought one very BIG and IMPORTANT question to my mind so I wrote one of the author’s hoping to get there thoughts:
Interesting article. One big question came to mind when reading your column and that is “How many countries have went the work of uranium enrichment that have not later developed a weapon?” I’d greatly appreciate your answer and thoughts. Thanks, Kevin

2 cents:
If you are a country and are pretty much a neighbor of another country that has repeatedly expressed the desire to see your nation wiped off the face of the earth AND that country starts messing with enriching uranium would you not deem it a wise decision on your part to eliminate that country’s ability to enrich uranium? Who cares if it is for peaceful purposes? Ultimately it is a required step to get to the means to wiping your nation off the earth. If Iran actually wants peaceful uranium enrichment it can be provided for them by purchase. If Iran actually wants to be treated as a civilized nation it needs to cease the hate speech and threats – then over a period of time where some diplomatic channels of goodwill are opened between the nations maybe the world would feel okay with a nuclear Iran. But while it is shaking its fists and foaming at the mouth hatred and threats that time is not now.
