We should let Iran have nuclear power

We should let Iran have nuclear power

Is there a possibility it would be better to talk with Iran than go to war with them? Since we have helped other nations acquire nuclear weapons: Israel, Pakistan, India, might it be better to allow them to develop nuclear power, especially since they vow peaceful uses? Although many nations now have nuclear weapons only one has ever used them.

In the area of radical Islam the practice in our ally Saudi Arabia is much more anti-West than in Iran.

In another area, our right wing people criticized Mr. Obama for shaking hands with Raul Castro. How is that a danger to our national security? Even when Obama tries to do something right, he is criticized. Normal relations with all our neighbors are in our best interest.

Our military-industrial complex would be happy to keep us in perpetual war no matter the number of wounded warriors.
