Chapman is completely off base. He is comparing Iran to other states--a very poor comparison. Further the likely users of the Iranian nuke are their non-state puppets. Have he had his head in the sand! Wars between Islamic factions and nations are almost everyday events--they have little value for life of anyone not of their faction. Why would any faction hesitate to use the bomb--when all their robots are ready for their rewards in heaven??
If you want to understand the intensifying showdown between the United States and Iran, consider the headline in The Washington Post on the threat of rapid nuclear proliferation: "Many Nations Ready to Break into Nuclear Club."

It highlights one of the dangers cited by those who favor military action against Iran. President Barack Obama says that if Iran gets the bomb, "other players in the region would feel it necessary to get their own nuclear weapons. So now you have the prospect of a nuclear arms race in the most volatile region in the world."

A plausible threat? It may sound that way....
