This is not an Atheist issue, but something that's in the news and on my mind a lot lately. I mean, I don't want a nuclear Iran any more than the next guy. But I can't wrap my mind around how we (the US) feel we have the right to control another sovereign nation.
After all, we have nuclear weapons. Does anybody think for a minute that we would let another country tell us we can't have them? And what would we do if we were threatened with sanctions or war over it? We would fight back! Right?
So, we "allow" Israel, Russia, China, etc. to have nuclear weapons, but we're going to attack Iran if they don't bow down? I just don't get it.
