Comment: Its simply that ultimately

(See in situ)

Its simply that ultimately

Its simply that ultimately our actions are what is driving Iran to seek a nuclear weapon (assuming it is) and that our efforts to stop them from doing so only increase the fervor at which they pursue it.

Our message to the world:

If you have nukes, we give you money and are a friend. (Pakistan)
If you Are trying to develop nukes we will harass you and possibly invade to stop you. (Iraq)
If you are trying to develop nukes and stop, then you will be overthrown all the easier (Libya)

So given those three options:

1: Money & Friendship
2: Invasion
3: Invasion

What would you choose? The only way to #1 is through #2
