No to Iran nuclear program

The main reason I am so against Iran having developing a nuclear arsenal is that should they do so, they would not hesitate in using it to intimidate their neighbors in the middle east, particularly Israel, not to mention using them further field once they adapt the weapons accordingly. God save us all should this ever happen.

Sanctions haven't worked, threats haven't worked, and dialogue hasn't worked. It's hard to see how else this situation is going to play out other than war at some point in the next few years - maybe after we've bailed out of Iraq. A fundamentalist theocratic government with nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles is a very alarming prospect.
