Nuclear Threat

There has been much talk in the media about an alleged nuclear threat from Iran and its fundamentalist regime. Is it true? Do Iranian President Ahmadinejad and the mullahs want to blow the world up? If so, do they have the means to carry out this wish? And what are they really after?

UN officials recently announced that Tehran had amassed enough uranium to make a nuclear bomb. Traces of weapons grade material have been found in Iran. In recent years, Iranian theologians have decreed that atomic weapons are permissible to use under Islamic law, thereby removing another potential impediment.

Pakistan, India, and North Korea already have stockpiled nuclear arsenals that pose regional and global dangers.
