Iran has renewed its pledge not to seek nuclear weapons during talks in Geneva with European Union countries. - BBC
Doesn't that settle it? Iran has said again it has no intention to seek nuclear weapons. What's the difference between this case and pre-invasion Iraq?
Saddam Hussein said he wasn't producing WMD, and as it turns out it appears he really wasn't. Sure, his son went on national television (Saddam controlled) and called on martyrs to attack the US and its citizens. And, he had been known to contract assassination attempts on a US president. But everyone now knows he never posed a threat to the US or its allies. Logically, Iran doesn't either. Sure, they scream "Death to Israel, Death to the US," at every legislative session. And it is true that the government is controlled by religious zealots that openly aspire to wipe the earth clean of infidels and Jews. But, just because they have a nuclear program doesn't mean they intend to use it for mass murder. Why doesn't the world just leave them alone?
