    A nuclear arms race already exists between Pakistan and India for a while. A nuclear Iran isn't even close to being threatening unless they don't properly dispose of their waste and as posted above absolutely no prove has been presented that Iran is developing nuclear weapons, that had ceased in 2003. They've even stated they are not interested in nuclear weapons development. The three countries Pakistan, India, and Israel that haven't signed the NPT are much more dangerous to the region. The sanctions also placed on Iran for no justifiable reason far outweigh the diplomatic efforts. This entire nuclear facade is all about isolating Iran economically and politically. Money and political influence is much more efficient then weapons. Ruining a country's economy or replacing a democratically elected leader without force is power not guns, tanks or nukes.

    The backing of the wolf into a corner analogy is perfectly apt here. Iran wouldn't even desire nuclear weapons if America hadn't all but stated it had no intention of ever playing nice with Iran and continuously saber-rattling at Iran alongside Israel.
