How does Iran Obtain "Peaceful Nuclear Power"?

"Mr. Obama took on a number of issues at play between America and the Muslim world, vowing that the 'United States will do what we must to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon' and warning that time to diplomatically resolve the Iranian nuclear issue 'is not unlimited.'

But he refused to go further than what he has said in the past, that 'a nuclear-armed Iran is not a challenge that can be contained,' despite pleas from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel to establish a new red line.

'America wants to resolve this issue through diplomacy, and we believe there is still time and space to do so,” Mr. Obama said. 'We respect the right of nations to access peaceful nuclear power, but one of the purposes of the United Nations is to see that we harness that power for peace.'"

The US gave Iran their 1st reactor

"Atoms for Peace"

How did Israel?

Why is Irans nuke program anyones business?

They are part of the non proliferation treaty

That's why this whole thing is ridiculous, they are allowed by international law to create nuclear power. We say they are building a bomb although there are no facts to back up that assertion. They say they are using it for peaceful purposes, and there is no proof that they are intending to use it for anything else. Check this out:

This would be amazing...

I want Johnson in the debates just to hit BOTH Obama and Romney with these points.

Anyone?

Does anyone have any insight on this? The double-standards and hypocrisy are confusing the hell out of me.
