No one should have nuclear weapon because there is no use of it but killing people. There should be no killing human. But Iran and any other country have the right to have peaceful nuclear program. nuclear science has application in agriculture, curing cancer, energy and etc. Any country should be able to use this science for peaceful cases. You can kill a person with a knife but you don't have the right to do so, it doesn't mean that you can't use the knife to cut meat or fruits. According to all nuclear agency's reports, there are no evidence that Iran is seeking nuclear weapon. It means that they're nuclear program is peaceful. Also they're supreme leader who is the highest power in the government has banned researching, having or using nuclear weapons. So they shouldn't be treated like this. They are under pressure and sanctions. Why is it like this? I think that no country should have nuclear weapon. America used nuclear bombs in Japan and we all saw how bad nuclear bombs are.

Very good question
The only country in the whole of history ever to use nuclear weapons against civilian populations is the USA and they claim that it was a good thing to do and yet a country like Iran surrounded by enemies who possess nuclear weapons is not supposed to have them in case they do the same good thing.

The first answer and isreal and Iran both having nukes is a very bad idea. That area has been a fighting zone for hundreds of years. It's almost as comon as a donut in a donut shop for those countries in the midle east to be fighting against each other. Nukes to those radicals would be just another weapon to use on the other. When isreal takes all it can take it will start WW3. Iran getting nukes would almost indefinitely be the tipping point. Idk about you but I personally don't want a nuclear war.

Because once Iran have the nuclear weapon, it will be the big dog in middle east and will be capable and totally destroying Israel (America's sheriff in the middle east).
It also provides a good pretext for America to prolong its crusade against islam.
Remember Nukes are made not for destruction but for peace, only through mutally assured destruction can a country be listened to and respected.

In an ideal world, nobody would have them. That is obviously not going to happen, so the next best thing is to try to limit the number of unstable agents capable of bringing about a full scale nuclear war.
It's silly to argue about "fairness" when it comes to weapons of mass destruction.

It is a matter of time. There will come a time that all countries big and small shall have the same rights to protect themselves from aggressive foreign interventions. Furthermore, we expect these truths to be self-evident. You must not be an American!

Agreed; we need to think about whether or not it's worth it.
N.K. is probably worse than Iran considering they let their people starve.

B/c they've said that they want to wipe isreal off the face of the earth. I'm serious, that's an actual quote from them. and their holocaust denying leaders.Source(s): It's the same reason why not everyone deserves the right to carry a firearm. it's really for the benefit of the whol world.
