The US New-Cons are deadly wrong with their policy. They are the ones derived the country into bankruptcy. The USA interest in the Middle East will be eliminated by Islamic Republic of Iran for sure when they have Atomic Bombs. I am not saying that the Iranian people do not deserve to have Atomic Bombs for self defense. But it is not right Government to have Atomic Bombs.
The Western powers have been abusing Iranian people for long time. Since Alexander the Great conquered Iranian land to this day. The western and eastern powers (or just say the Christian countries) have been abusing Iranian people (It means the people from Pakistan to Turkey and from Kurdistan to former Soviet Union countries). This policy of harassment and abuses do not have anything to do with the conflicts between Islam and Christian religions. I wrote a book on this subject will be published soon.
The people in these geographical areas above are related by blood to most of western people (Europe, Russian, North American and Australia).
The people in charge of Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI) are fanatic Shi'a Muslim. They are going to use Atomic Bombs in the war without hesitations. Having said that what options President Obama has to stop IRI to not have Atomic Bombs.
First we have to know the root of the problem. The Jewish lobbyist and Israeli Government with their influence want the USA to go to war against Iran. The root of Jewish animosity goes back to Babylon time.
The Median Empire (Kurd, Persian, Elamite, Baluchi and others) helped Babylon against the Jewish people then. Since then the Jewish people helped enemies of Iran and Iranian people. The Jewish people helped fabricate false history for western people since Alexander the Great. They helped Roman Empire against Iranian; they used their service through their scholars to encourage animosity between the people in Christian countries to be enemies to Iranian people before Islam and after Islam.
Here is the root of the animosity between Jewish people and Iranian people. No wonder Neo-Jewish groups like PM of Israel want war against Iranian people.
There are no ethnic differences among Iranian people. I just found 2500 years old Aryan language written by Emperor Darius the Great which will be good for the entire geographical regions above.
