The Iranian government is no worse than many other governments in the region that we support to the hilt, such as Saudi Arabia. We've been warned for decades that Iran is just a year away from nuclear weapons. There is no evidence Iran has such a program, but that doesn't stop our warmongering propagandists. Our masters in Washington discovered with Iraq, that no evidence is needed, so long as you ramp up the propaganda. Armstrong Williams is doing his part.

Stupid; Saudi Arabia doesn't threaten to close off Hormuz,doesn't threaten other nations,they keep a low profile.

As for evidence,you just won't open your eyes and see. in that,you're Weapons-Grade Stupid.
Even the leftist Associated Press has run several articles about Iran's nuclear weapons program.

Iran has, in fact, declared many times that it has no intention of producing nuclear weapons. But inspectors for the United Nations nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), have concluded that Iran’s nuclear activities, far from being aimed exclusively at a civilian energy program, contain a “military dimension” that suggests the regime is developing a nuclear weapons capability.

Alan M. Dershowitz's Perspective: Two recent events suggest that the American strategy of preventing Iran from developing nuclear weapons is not yet working. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has reported that Iran has “more than doubled” its development of centrifuges in an effort to accelerate its capacity to develop nuclear weapons.

The U.N. atomic agency has received new and significant intelligence over the past month that Iran has moved further toward the ability to build a nuclear weapon, diplomats tell The Associated Press.

They say the intelligence shows that Iran has advanced its work on calculating the destructive power of an atomic warhead through a series of computer models that it ran sometime within the past three years.

Of course,Textor thinks that the Western intelligence agencies should make their evidence and findings public just for folks like that Iran can locate the sources and execute them. And thus make it even harder to get intel on the program.
Textor evidently believes that the US Intel leaders are not just supporting Comrade Hussein so they get to keep their jobs,that they are really all united in their opinions and don't do disinformation or lie to the public....
IOW,naive or willfully blind. or both.

If you can learn to discuss issues without sinking to the level of personal insults, I'd answer you. But your approach betrays the thinness or non-existence of your points.

Your father evidently didn't tell you the old truth that, if you have to sink to the level of insults, you don't have a very good argument.

With the focus of the presidential race turning sharply toward foreign policy, the topic of Iran and competing visions for what to do about the rogue regime’s pursuit of nuclear weapons are likely to take center stage in the coming days.

While Iran claims that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes, the international community continues to unveil evidence that Tehran’s atomic pursuits are anything but innocent. Far from being harmless, the notion of the world’s most destructive weapons in the hands of a terrorism-sponsoring regime represent a stark threat to the stability of the Middle East and the security...
