Don't you remember the certainty with which the UK and US told us they knew where all the WMD was in Iraq! No one is fooling themselves that they know where Iran has secreted all its nuclear research sites.
What do you base your fears of Iran on - it can't be precedence. A genuine question, why do you think Iran is a threat to it's neighbours?
North Korea is completely screwed up country that has the potential to be very dangerous, yet the world isn't panicking over them. I can see the hypocrisy in panicking over Iran while that other beast lurks in the mist.

If the US, UK, etc can have nuclear weapons, why not Iran or any other country?
