    Because the USA is the only country to ever have used it... twice. They dont want someone else to have the potential to use it as a defense weapon.... How will they keep control over the oil if another country can compete with them militarily?

    Does "imminent danger" and "weapons of mass destruction" ring any bells? Remember the jargon back in 2003? Plus, the president of Iran has, if not directly, hinted that he would like to see Israel cleared from the maps.

    I am all for every country having nuclear technology as long as it will be used for producing electricity. I feel that there are already enough nuclear weapons to destroy the planet hundreds of times over that more weapons is more than overkill.IF Iran is producing nuclear technology for electricity than I think that they should be allowed to continue on, but we (the general population) will never know the real reason. If you listen to the U.S. Government and the Intelligence community, they are developing nuclear weapons. How much can you trust Bush and our intelligence community? They were wrong on Iraq; They are wrong about global warming; They were wrong on North Korea. Intelligence based on factual evidence is good intelligence. Intelligence based on heresay is speculation and very bad intelligence.

    they are threatening to use it before they even have it, that's not very responsible.

    First off, the whole world doesn't have them. Second because of the threat of nuclear proliferation. We Americans keep our Nuclear weapons and energy facilities under tight security so that the wrong people can't get their hands on them. If Iran had the technology to build a nuclear weapon who's to say they wouldn't sell that knowledge to the highest bidder, or just give it to a radical terrorist cell. The Iranian Revolutionary Guard has already proved it has no regard for political boundaries, what if the weapon was put in their hand s. Would it be used against us or another country as a scare tactic. We can't have countries that have little security or thought for world affairs running around with the technology to build nuclear weapons.

    Of course there are different kinds of nuclear tech. But, if you are specifically referencing weapon technology the only reason why one could unconvincingly argue against them having it is due to the possible under risk of use. However, I remember the time when the US and USSR, despite nuclear arsenals and inherent differences, maintained peace through the doctrine of mutually assured destruction (MAD) which constrained the two sides to talk to each other with respect, something that is lacking in the middle east (by all sides).

    If you hated someone and really wanted to kill them and you found a way to, would you do it? Well that is what Iran feels and they found a way, don't say they wouldn't try to kill us with them because that is all that nukes are for, killing. Do you really want to give an enemy a weapon, do you want to empower them. They hate us no matter what you say.
