Maybe they are developing nuclear physics for some sort propulsion or power.. Yet US and Isreal are saying they are developing nuclear bombs come on not everyone thinks like US and Israel.. Give them a break... they arent threathing anyone like US or Isreal. Leave them alone... On the other hand US had developed nuclear physic just for making weapons of mass destruction and they even used it so... Who is a real threat some lunatic with whole arsenal of missiles or one with noone ...and even if you people think they are making scary bombs ... you think they will use one bomb vs. US or Isreal or any other country no they wont, they aint nothing like your military..
Give me one firm evidence they are making nuclear " warheads " !

Edit: Like China and Russia arent allowing US or Isreal to interfer they wont allow Iran to launch any missiles for that matter...Some people arent all about war...

(Reuters) - Iran has successfully launched a second domestically built satellite into orbit, Iran's Arabic language al-Alam television reported on Wednesday.

The United States and its allies fear Iran is seeking to build nuclear bombs and are concerned that the long-range ballistic technology used to put satellites into orbit can also be used to launch warheads.

"Iran launched a domestically built rocket and the Rasad 1 (satellite) has been put into orbit," al-Alam reported.

In February 2009, Iran launched its first domestically-built satellite, the OMID (Hope) research and telecoms satellite, in what it described as a big step coinciding with the 30th anniversary of its 1979 Islamic revolution.

Iran, which regards its space program as a matter of national pride, says its nuclear program is solely to generate electricity.

Physically a missile launched from Iran will not hit American soil. Fact. We insist on making it our problem despite this.

I coulda swore I saw the monkey smiling in the video.

Why do people take Iran as threat?
I think probably because they talk mean.

The Iranian politicos, perhaps justifiably, do fear the West in light of events going back to the 50's revolution. These fears are understandable and are certainly perpetuated to political advantage. But, this political ethos that may be often at odds with the general Persian population that is arguably more pro-west than most other Islamic populations. So, given this perspective, the launching of the projectile can certainly be viewed as potentially hostile, or perhaps more benevolently as a scientific endeavor that both demonstrates military might as well as scientific and engineering acumen of "don't tread on me."

Yea -- everyone sees the world from a different perspective.  It takes work to try to see the world as an Iranian Mullah might see it, though.

People change, times change,... US isnt so much of a superpower as it was.. Back in days America was a good example, even i thought highly about it. But now it went haywire and Bush family started this trend. You people need to fix your own problems first like in country they have too... than maybe help others, and by help i actually mean HELP.. Not destruction and massive troop involvment.. Look at french they sent only a small platoon of soldiers to help locals in their endevaour. You people are sending entire regiments or military " help "...which so far resulted in massive civilian death, that is no help.. thats massacre..

In related news, Iran announced the invention of color television. This, while Beatlemania sweeps the country. Thousands of Iranian teens are listening to the Fab Four with their transistor radios.

I do worry about Iran a lot.  The rhetoric is scary, the Mullahs' rule is touch-and-go (which could lead them to do things they shouldn't) and anyone who believes the nuclear work is for electricity when they have all that oil and natural gas is not being reasonable.

I think they plan to use nuclear weapons for blackmail, but that is just the best interpretation I can put on it; other possible interpretations are much worse.  I can see why Israel may come to do something drastic in the near future, although I fervently hope they don't.

Israel has its own nuclear missiles so if anything they have helped the paranoia in Iran by having them. As well Pakistan and India are both nuclear powers now and Iran is within striking distance of those 3 nuclear capable nations. Its called an arms race. Nothing will stop it TBH until they burn out there own cold war just like the US and Russia did.

For some reason once you reach the ability to destroy the world 20,000 over the nuke thing becomes not such a funtoy anymore.

Congratulations Iran!
Welcome to 1948.

This must be the rest of the "Civilized" world that Obama keeps saying we need to join.
