Why We Must Attack Iran

Sky News reports that:

Iran is ready to share its nuclear know-how with other countries, its supreme leader has said.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei made the announcement after talks with the visiting Sudanese president, Omar Hassan al-Bashir.

Iran is currently in a nuclear standoff with the West, which fears Tehran is secretly developing atomic weapons that could be used by terrorists.

Iran insists it only wants nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.

"The nuclear strength of the Iranian scientists is an example of several scientific currents in Iran that are going ahead, and the Islamic Republic of Iran is ready to transfer the experience, science and technology of its scientists," state television quoted Mr Khamenei as saying.

Iranian lawmaker Kamal Daneshyar, head of parliament's energy committee, said the country may offer training to other like-minded nations.

"Iranian nuclear scientists can easily train other Islamic countries in uranium enrichment and nuclear fuel production," he said.

The United Nations has demanded that the Tehran halt uranium enrichment, but Iran says it will continue the work.

The International Atomic Energy Agency is due to report to the UN Security Council by Friday on whether Iran is complying with UN demands.

For  ages the left have been going on about how we must not invade Iran, that diplomacy is the solution, and threatening force is not the answer.

Well, Iran has played the left-wing International community for the fools they are. It's been stringing European diplomats along for years to buy time. Whilst we've been on our hands and knees begging without leverage (sorry, 'negotiating'), Iran has been enriching Uranium. And now it's about to share that technology with brutal unpopular dictatorships, including those who financially support terrorism.

The Iranian government is training people to murder British soldiers. It is not going to shy away from passing nuclear knowledge far and wide in countries where a sizable minority are hostile to the US and the UK. The more the technology spreads, the greater the odds that nuclear technology will be leaked to groups planning atrocities.

On 7/7, I was about five minutes away from Liverpool Station, and one of the blasts. The dead bodies and dead body parts were brought to the Honorary Artillery Company grounds just across the road from where I work. Thanks to Iran, the 7/7 bombers successors may have a nuclear bomb.

As an Anglo-Iranian, who has lived in Tehran, and who would have a right to an Iranian passport, my message is simple: We must launch an attack on Iranian nuclear facilities. We must do it now. If conventional weapons are not powerful enough to stop Iran's nuclear proliferation, we must be prepared to use nuclear weapons.

If we do not, tens of thousands will die from nuclear terrorist attacks on London, New York or Washington over the next few deacdes. 9/11 will seem minor in comparison.

We cannot afford to let nations with a history of helping terrorists, gain access to nuclear bombs.

France will hoist the white flag, as usual. Germany too. They are the coward nations, afraid of facing reality. We cannot afford to place the security of our people in the hands of the UN, for as  satirical conservative news site Scrappleface so accurately stated: Iran Years from Nuke, U.N. Decades from Action.

Your blog should be nuked, not Labour. Can't believe somebody like you would want to invade Iran since after what has happened with Iraq. Wars only make us less safe and create more hostility between muslims and the west. As for Labour Unions, we need unions to stand up for the rights of the poorest workers in world, on long hours for low pay.

The war in Iraq has been a great success. Where once there ruled a brutal dictator, there is now a representative democracy. This is A GOOD THING.

The security problems in Iraq are temporary. Ten years from now Iraq will be a peaceful thriving country. Once the Americans and foreign troops have left, and the armed forces are seen to be genuinely Iraqi, a lot of the violence will cease.

Our willingness and ability to go to war (and to win easily) adds real force to our diplomatic attempts to dissuade rouge nations from taking harmful actions. Most of the time, the implied threat of force is enough to change behaviour. But that implied threat needs to be credible, if it is to have any power.

Proliferation of nuclear weapons to terrorists should be our concern. If dealing with that, rather than burying our heads in the sand, pisses off a few Muslims, so be it.

Singing peace songs and passing UN resolutions only ever works in the Lefty mind. It real life, it accomplishes nothing. A credible threat of force is a necessity.

The time to move against Iran is now before they become a terrorist nuclear cafeteria. Nukes should be used if conventional won't do it. Remember how quickly Japan surrendered when we nuked them?

We are fighting against enemies who don't have the guts to come out and fight. Lets show them we are there to fight by nuking Iran. Then if they come out to fight - encircle them and then slaughter them.
