There’s a reason I’m posting these backwards, how any view is up to them.
No matter what is thought about the leadership of Iran, by the World, especially as to it’s treatment of it’s citizens, the fact remains, as pointed out in part three, they are surrounded by Nuclear Powers and Weapons. So if really seeking their own they do so as to defense of their threatened country and it’s citizens, and talks had ceased to disarm or rid the world of. New cold war mentality, yep!!
Israel’s nukes and Iran
Beneath the hype Pt.3: McGovern & Thielmann on consequences of US silence on Israel’s nuclear weapons
Intelligence experts Ray McGovern and Greg Thielmann respond to a question from the floor on the significance of Israel’s nuclear weapons arsenal in the discussion of Iran. McGovern notes that “an unpardonable mistake in US politics is to mention the Israeli arsenal as a motivation for Iran.” Adding that, “by acknowledging the Israeli nukes, one realizes that Iran is surrounded on all sides by nuclear powers. Russia to the North, Pakistan to the East, Israel to the West, and US ships in the Persian Gulf to the South.
Thielmann cautions US figures on the danger of ignoring the fact that, “between Iran and Israel, only one of these two states is currently under existential threat, and that is Iran.”

Iraq whistle-blower Greg Thielmann: Military threats may push Iran to restart suspended weapons program
In part two of the presentation delivered to congressional aides and press members separating fact from fiction in the Iran nuclear debate, key Iraq weapons program whistle-blower Greg Thielmann weighs-in. Thielmann, now a senior fellow at the Arms Control Association, gives a primer on the elements needed to build a successful nuclear weaponry program. He then explains how the intelligence consensus over recent years is actually prolonging the time horizon for Iran to develop a useful bomb. Thielmann details that while the intelligence community is of the belief that the Iranian regime is ultimately interested in developing such a weapon, they are not making considerable strides toward such ends. He points out that recent news of Iran’s identification of another enrichment site, while possibly a little late, demonstrates compliance with the Non-Proliferation Treaty, and should be viewed as evidence that the regime is not moving any closer to a developed bomb.
